I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for 42 wonderful years. I have been blessed with one daughter who is grown and gone! She and her hubby have blessed us with a precious grandchild, Darbee Rae. She is eight years old and the sunshine in our days. I have always been a stay at home maid, cook, doctor, babysitter, taxi, wife, mother, and grandmother. I enjoy crafting. My interests include primitives, vintage and colonial styles. I love decorating my home. I enjoy traveling with my hubby and friends, reading, and trying different recipes. I am a Christian and enjoy activities within my church. I hope you enjoy reading about my daily adventures in crafting, shopping, and enjoying life thru the eyes of my darling grand daughter.

WooHoo I Am Back!!!!!

Good evening everyone.  I am so happy and excited tonight.  Mr. P. felt so sorry for me this week being without my computer so today Holly and I got to go computer shopping.  And I am so happy to say I have a brand new laptop.  She and Darbee Rae came home with me and helped to set it up.  I am so thankful to be able to visit with you all again.

Athough I have been slow in creating for our show Mr. P . has been busy in the woodshop.  He built this farm table a while back  but this picture does not do it justice.

This is a bookcase he made from an old door.  These always sell right away.

I can't show too much I have finished.  So I will share with you what my craft room looks like. 

This is  one of the  piles of pumpkins waiting  for me to finish


One day soon, I hope these will be cute horse ornaments and ice skates.  Oh my goodness,, Lord please help me to get motivated and in a  HURRY.

One evening last week, Darbee Rae called and ask what I was doing.  I told her I was doing my nails and she had to come and give me a pedicure.  She said I had promised she could do my toes.  Well  what does a good Nana do????

What do you think?  Yea, I looked like I was bleeding.  But you know what?  We had a fun evening
 and memories were made.  She left one happy little girl that she had made Nana "pretty".  Can you guess what I did before bed? 

Well I guess that's about it for tonight.  Can't wait to get all caught up with you .  Know what I will bwe doing tomorrow.  Oh, I know I need to be in the craft room,,,,, maybe Monday.  Have a great weekend.  Until next time.
