Well, maybe. This is a picture of an old flour mill. We are in the process of possibly saving this old building if all goes well. We still have to go in front of the planning and zoning committee in a week. If all ok'd we will then have this beautiful structure moved to our property down the road. It needs sooooo much work but we are always up for the challenge. The inside is really neat to. Talk about primitive!!! Would love to decorate this one!!! Already told my husband that I have dibs on the 3rd floor for my rug hooking studio. Its only fair..he has the whole barn. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I did. Fun watching grandkids open gifts. Its always the best when all my kids are together. Thats what its all about to me...Family!. Happy new year everyone. Will keep you posted on our progress as it develops. Oh, we are also getting in slowly but surely our rug hooking supplies into our store. Im so excited.

Hi folks, Hope that you are all keeping warm. Way below zero here with the sun shining. Lots of snow. But its so pretty. We will definately have a white christmas. What better way to pass time than to rug hook. Here is my first piece that I have finished hooking. Just have to complete the rest (hemming, stitching, ironing). This is my original design. I love old barns and houses. Looking forward to doing another. Its so addicting. So many things that my husband and I are thinking about doing this next year. Will keep you all posted as things if and when they happen. Just great things that keep us excited about what we enjoy doing! So here are a few pics of my rug hooking chair pad (my design, 1st one), and a shot out my back door looking at our cabin and the back yard hills. Lastly, a pic of a spot in our bathroom that I decorated. Moved a small cupboard bottom in the room, added a small cupboard top that my husband mad out of a small book case. He then added wainscott doors and stained it. Looks like a small version of a stepback cupboard. Just love it! Well lets hope for an early spring. Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

Here are a few pictures taken just before the doors opened on Holiday open house day. I dont have time to put on more right now. This country internet service is not the fastest yet. I just want to thank everyone of you that had come and visited the store. Your business is greatly appreciated. I enjoyed visiting with everyone when I had the chance. The past few days at the store have been sooooo busy but I loved it. Thank you also for all the nice compliments. That above all keeps me going besides your business of course. Lots of wonderful items left to good homes. But there is still plenty of goodies waiting for new homes. So I will try to post more photos as I can. I will be paying close attention to my baby grandaughter as she has come down with pneumonia again. She is my world. Here is a picture of here first halloween in costume, what a pumpkin!!! I just love her.

Just a week away from our Holiday open house. Have been working so hard at preparing for this event. The store is totally rearranged. Have created a few awesome rooms that I cant wait for everyone to see. Im keeping it a secret until Nov 5th. My husband was able to get what I wanted done, bless his heart. Starting Sunday we will begin to transform our store into a winter wonderland. Sooooo many wonderful things to put out that have been waiting since early spring. Every year someone tells me that I have outdone myself on decorating, but I think that this year is gonna be my favorite. Promise that I will soon have some pics for all to see. I hope that you can plan on comming to our open house. And remember that we will be open on Thanksgiving, from 4 pm til 8 pm. Sooooo stay tuned for more later. Take care.
