Good morning! Thought I would use a brighter color today for my text, lol. It is wonderfully sunny out today, but that sun is deceiving! Brrrr! A good day to stay indoors for sure! Well, I've got a couple of pics to show, just 2 of the lovely things I won on ebay lately.
The first is of an antique wooden stave bucket, I just love it! ( Thank you Ann! :), and the second is of an primitive antique rag runner rug, it is almost 11 feet long and 2 feet wide. The pics don't do these justice but they are once again from my cell phone. I seriously need to get new batteries for my camera, lol. I have the runner on our livingroom floor , not sure where I'm putting the bucket yet, I have to find just the right spot!! I have a few more things to arrive in the mail soon so I will definitely post pics of them!! Oh, I got my new issue of the APP magazine and I absolutely love it! It is going to keep me busy reading and looking forward to spring on these bitterly cold days! Well, I'm off to have some lunch, hope everyone is having a fabulous week!! Cheers, Trish
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!!
