Foodie Pic

Ya know how some people will put pics of their food on Facebook, etc.... well I thought I'd finally add my first one. My 6 year old grand daughter made me the most delicious meal the other day. She assured me it had all the food groups that she learned in school! I had her pie and coffee for dessert, but failed to snag a pic of it since I scarfed it down so fast! ;o)

Have a blessed day my friends!

Just Messin' Around ~ And A Question ***

Afternoon all! 
  I love trying to keep flowers around the house, especially in winter - (bah humbug come on Spring) ~ Well, I had a few minutes to primitize an old large canning jar and here's the result.

  I just sewed and old button on the burlap fabric and then sewed some velcro on the back of it to hold it around the jar.
 Easy on! Easy off!

** ~ **

Now for a question....
I found this while haunting an antique mall and loved it.  
But I don't know what kind of "clock" this is...
if you notice, the Number 1 is on the right of the 12.
And the back has a lever you pull down and when I twist the dial on the back it will eventually have an alarm go off  and the handle raises.
what is this?

I'm getting antsy to start my gardens!
Keep the faith folks, Spring is really really gonna be here some day!!  ;o)

Happy February - Early Works

Happy February!

I've got some goodies in

I'd be honored if you'd stop by and take a peek!

We got ourselves some snow last night, but fortunately nothing like they were predicting. Yep, snow is pretty, but if you have to get out in it, it can be a bit challenging! 
Take care my friends!

Kitchen Remodel

We spent the end of 2012 and pretty much all of 2013 remodeling our kitchen....doing what we could as we could. A project a good 20 years in the making! Of course now I know why my folks didn't get air conditioning until us kids were out of the house - less mouths to feed and a few extra pennies available! LOL

Anyway, I mentioned some time ago I'd share some pics and here's just a few. 
I do need to mention that some call this a "galley" kitchen... I've always called it a "hallway after thought!" Yeah it's small, but I really wanted to do something to make it appear bigger. And, of course, now the red Formica counter tops are back "in".  As for me, I guess I've just been retro and now ready to move on! hehehe

Here's one side: before

and after....
I love the white cabinets and dark blue counter tops!

I love the microwave over my 5 burner stove top!
Now I finally have more room for my big honkin' canners and pots!
If you can see it, there's one cutting board that has a pic of a lady doing laundry.
That was my gramma's. She passed in 2002 at the age of 98!

And the other side of the kitchen.... before....


I love my built in oven!
Getting older and the kind of work I do,
my back has issues, so not bending over to get something out of the oven or broiler is so awesome!

new pantry door...

I also love having room above the cabinets to put a few of my pretties!

To get the pic below I had to stand in the pantry! hawhawhaw

Well I love it and can't stop staring at it. If it was big enough to have a little tiny kitchen table and a couple of chairs I'd probably just sit in there and ooohhh and ahhhh. 

Thanks for stoppin' by!
