Whoohoo!! I went and got my dough/pastry board yesterday!! I am so glad that it was still there :) It covers my whole stove top. I just need to put something on it to protect the wood, I have some minwax that I hope will do. I'm not going to paint it nothing as I love all the dings and marks in it, they give it character. And, I got it for 10% off so instead of paying $65 which really wasn't a bad price for such a big board, I got it for $58.50. Now I just have to find some prim decorations to display on it...do I smell another shopping trip, lol? I also picked up a cute wooden washboard soap holder with a towel rod on it. I don't really like it all light wood so I would like to stain it or something so that I can still keep the wording on it. What do you all think? Anyhow, it looks like it's going to storm, so I'm going to get off of here for now. We need a good rain if it would just take away this awful humidity. I feel like melting as soon as I step out the door :P Hope everyone is having a blessed week and take care for now,
I am a stay at home mom of 5 children and I am married to my wonderful husband James for almost 9 years. We live on a 75 acre farm in the rolling hills of Kendal, Ontario which has been in my husband's family since the mid 1880's. Our house is over 150 yrs old and I love it! We have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 1 horse,1 hamster, and numerous chickens and ducks. Life is never dull around here to say the least. I love antiques and the simpler way of life and I have a interest in Prim Decor which is slowly but surely taking over my home. I also dabble in candle making. soap making and prim crafts but I have alot to learn.
My motto is ;
I BELIEVE, MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!, since our 9 yr old son was born with a rare genetic disorder called Hurlers Syndrome/ MPS1 in which he received a bone marrow transplant at the age of 11 months old to slow down the progression of his disease... during this time he was so ill that he was not expected to recover and come home with us... BUT HE DID!! And against all odds, he is still with us today :) So Believe That Miracles Can Happen!!
