Who am I...Well, I am a wife, mother and grandmother of six beautiful grandchildren whom I love very much. My favorite thing to do is to spend time with them teaching them to sew and make crafts just like my grandmother did with me. I love spending time on warm days sitting in the swing under the oak tree drinking sweet tea and watching and listening to the birds sing and on the cold days I love to just sit by the fireplace where it is cozy and warm and work on a craft or sewing project. I live in the south, and yes, we love our sweet tea and coffee. lol. However, I did live in Massachusetts and also in Indiana and while I did like living in those areas, there is no place like home and Mississippi is where I grew up and will always be home for me. I love to go to yard sales, flea markets, antique auctions, and estate sales. There is nothing like finding a treasure. I love finding old pieces of furniture and restoring them back to their beautiful glory. I love shabby chic and Victorian décor. I believe in God, family, and true friendship. Thank you for reading my profile and I would love to hear about you.
Hobbies: Sewing, Crafting, Reading, Restoring Furniture, Working in my Flower beds, Canning and preserving my own veggies, fruits, jellies, and pickles and Writing. I love going to estate sales, flea markets, yard sales, auctions, etc. and finding treasures.
Books: I love reading religious books by Joyce Meyer, Larry Levine, and several others. I also like to read novels about the amish and their way of life.
My favorite music is gospel but I also like country music as well. My favorite songs are: Amazing Grace, How Great Thou Art, Sweet Hour of Prayer, Daddy's Hands (Not sure if that is the right name of it) and many more. I do like to listen to some classical and a tranquil and soothing instrumental music while I am working.
I love flea market flip, the craft channel, The Curse of Oak Island, all the crime shows, and I must admit that I do watch that show "Cheaters" from time to time. Shamefully I find it to be funny. I also love all of Madea's movies. She cracks me up.lol I just love her.
I love to do any kind of crafts. I do a lot of sewing to sell but it has kind of taken the joy out of it for me. I love to restore old furniture and have done quite a few and sold them. There is just something about taking a trashed piece of very old furniture and bringing it back to it's glory. I love making journals which is a new craft I have gotten into recently. I make doll furniture, doll clothes, quilts, papercrafts, just about anything depending on the mood of the day. lol. I do have a craft room but my favorite place is in front of the fireplace. My favorite materials to work with are lace, lots and lots of lace, cardstock, ribbons, flowers, and old and vintage items.
Stamp Pads Paper Cards Lace Doilies Angels Anything Victorian or Shabby Chic Ephemera Antique Stuff Music Sheets Surprises, lol
