About Me

My photo
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.

Moving on My Mind

Happy Friday friends.  Don't you just love it when Friday finally rolls around?  I just love the weekend regardless of what we have planned.  Love lazy Saturday mornings having coffee with the mister . Life seems to slow down a little on the weekend.  Hope you have a wonderful one whatever you might have planned.

Well, it is beginning to sink in that this year we may not get a good snow here in our parts.  We have had several forecast where the "S" word was mentioned and parts of our state have seen a little white stuff, however this has been the extent of our snow flurries.

Sad isn't it?  And I so love a good snow fall.  Need to convince the Mister we need to move North.{smile}

My girls love it just as much as I.  Darbee Rae got to go out in her P.J's .  Not even enough for a snowball, however it was a little snow.  Don't my Northern friends feel sorry for us southern girls??
Okay,,, on to the title of my post.  No, Mr. P. and I are not moving, however Holly and family have sold their home and are having their dream home built.  I am so proud and excited for them.  SO,,,, with that said you can only imagine how I have been spending my days as of late. First, we have visited many  Open Houses.  Oh, what fun I have had.  Makes me realize just how old our home really is.  But that's okay.  I have been collecting lots of ideas.  You will hear more about that later in this post.  Just look inside some of there beautiful homes.
I love the GROCERY sign in the breakfast area and that all the chairs are a different color at the breakfast table. 

Such a big pretty room.
I wasn't the only one getting ideas from these homes.   Darbee Rae had her camera and was snapping away.  Love it.

Yes, I am so excited for Holly and family.  However there is one aspect of this I do not envy them.  Packing.  I spent the day with them one day this past week, and finally one room is done, and many more to go
I am so excited that she includes me in this journey.  I was with her yesterday as she picked out her colors and the choices she made in the house as far as upgrades, etc.  I DID keep my mouth shut and was so proud of her as she picked out what she wanted


Okay,,, enough of the new house information.  Will share the actual house in a future post.  If you are still with me, thanks for letting me share our exciting news with you.
Okay,,, when we last visited with you , I showed you a photo of Mr. P. making something for me in the workshop. 
Well the project is finished and here is the finished project!!
After we remolded the kitchen last year, I really missed my island.  So,,, now I have one, and also a little pull out breakfast area to sit and have our breakfast, etc.

I love my Mister.  I am so blessed that he has a talent and does things to make our house a home.  Once this project was complete, he wasted no time starting another improvement for me.  As I said earlier in this post, I had gotten lots of ideas from all these model homes. Well,,, here he is tearing out our old bookcases in the family room.

I can't wait to share the finished bookcases with you in a future post.  Well if you are still with me,, thank you.  I hope I haven't bored you too much with all my ramblings. Life is good here at the home place . Don't forget to leave a comment so I will know you stopped by.  You are all important to me.
Until next time...

  7. Angela, I wish we could 'share' some of our snow here in the mountains of NC. Back in Jan. we had 18 inches over a 3 day period of snowing day & night! We're actually tired of snow. (Smile) I'm new to your sweet blog, & I especially appreciate you telling us that you are a Christian. Blessings, Bev

  8. Exciting time for Holly and her family!! I love your breakfast bar in your kitchen. I wanted one in my kitchen, but my kitchen is too small for one to go in there.

  9. Hello, I went by to say hello, since I've been disconnected from everything for a long time. As always I love your work. That I still think that they are not chapucillas, but great works. A kiss.
