Good Thursday morning everyone! It's a bright, sunny beautiful day here in Kendal. After yesterday's much needed rain (although it was quite heavy for awhile!), it's nice to see Mr. Sunshine again and the humidity isn't too bad... yet :) Yesterday I received a wonderful parcel in the mail... I've been waiting for it for a bit and our postal system can be very slow at times. So after being completely soaked from the rain because our van window won't go up( I really hate automatic windows in vehicles and would much prefer the wind up ones, I eagerly opened the mailbox door and to my surprise, a brown envelope was just waiting for me! I knew it, I knew it! So rushing home and drying off, I carefully opened the envelope, boy was it taped good! lol, and than unwrapped the sweet prim tissue paper, and this is what was inside! A beautiful handmade prim bonnet made by Lecia over at Farmhouse Prims. It is stained just perfect and I love the colors. Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful bonnet and for making me smile on such a rainy, stormy day!
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!!
