I got spoiled!! :D
Good morning everyone! Another beautiful sunny day here and the windows are temporarily wide open again before it gets to hot out. There is a beautiful breeze blowing and I'm trying to air the house out from painting my drysink,lol. Yesterday was a nice surprise again waiting in the mailbox just for me! And no, it wasn't bills!! (for once). I had ordered another bonnet from Lecia over at Farmhouse Prims. I had asked for Lecia to pick one out for me to surprise me. And she didn't disappoint me!! :) Of course I knew she wouldn't because all of her bonnets are beautiful and perfect! And to bot, they arrived in just one week! The postal service was kind to me not to make me wait too long :) And she even sent me a cute little ditty bag to hang with the bonnet and a beautiful card with a sweet note in it. And the picture on the front of the card was of her bonnets hanging out on her clothes line to dry( You have probably seen this pic on her blog!). I am so proud to be a Canadian who owns 2 of Lecia's wonderful creations! And you all warned me about how addicting her bonnets are, and you were all right!! Well that topped my day off and made my Monday turn around since it wasn't going so great before that. Thank you Lecia, my prim friend, you are truly special! The pic of the bonnet is on the left hand side, of course it's hanging beside the other one she made me. I have to find a better place to display them!
Hoping everyone is having a delightful Tuesday. I'm off to chase a coyote out of the barnyard and put my chickens and ducks back in the coop before they get snacked on!
Have a fabulous 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!!
