A little Snuggle from a friend

This was me and Chance on the back porch yesterday. He is a snuggly dog and when I sat down on the step he was right there to cuddle. I love my fur babies and just thought I would share his pic with you. Not the best one of me but he is beautiful as always!

Some backyard work and a gift!

Remember this backyard?? Well thats when the fence blew down in the storm but I am refering to the mess in the foreground. It is actually the remains of an old barn that has been there since we moved here. Pieces of cement....old railroad ties,etc. Well its finally gone!
This is what it looks like now! We had a wonderful man come in and dig it up and bury all the crap!
Now I just have to get a load of topsoil and seed it and I will finally have a complete back yard...well once the fence goes back up! Part of this is going to actually be a small garden that I have been wanting forever....I am a happy girl. Also this week I got a great package in the mail from my friend TJ at Prim Pals Forum.She knows I love crows and sent me this great plaque and also the sign. Thanks Sista your the best! Well Its a beautiful day here so I am off to do some work outside. I figure I better get at it before its too hot out there. Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

A trip and a Special Bear!

I have been on the road again....I am loving the travelling this summer! This time Hubby and I went to Maine and New Hampshire. I got to meet a great blogger and Prim Pals Forum Member Jan from Primitive Outhouse! This is her and I ate her place in NH. Jan guided me to a few Prim Shops and this one is too cute so I had to share! Im sorry I dont remember the name of the town but this is Susie's Bittersweet Treasures. She took over her hubby's garage and made herself the nicest shop! This is the side of the shop on the outside. She even let me take a pic inside....look at all those prim goodies. The furniture was beautiful! And she had some great stitcheries made locally as well. And there was even an outhouse out back!! So much to look at there. You can also find Susie's on Facebook under the same name. This is a very special Bear. He was made by Traci at York Mountain Primitives and is OAK bear. This is William named after my dad. I asked Traci to make him for my moms birthday. She did such a good job and even wrote me a little story with some details I gave her about dad. Thank you again Traci he is wonderful!

I know I have been a slack blogger lately and I hope you will all forgive me. Its summer and busy around here! Well busy with me going all over the place shopping and spending money hehe! Thank you to all my are such great people and I appreciate each and every one of you.
