The past few days have been good to me! I was able to find lots of goodies at some thrift stores so I will be kept busy painting most of them :)
I also got my very first firkin in the mail today, the one that I won on ebay! I love it and I'm sure I will be adding more to my collection! Ann also sent a surprise with the firkin, a really nice wooden spoon/butter paddle. She is so kind and has become one of very favourite ebay sellers! And of course she is the won that sold me the antique wooden stave bucket, I'm adding a better picture of it as well :)
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!!
