Valentine Annie pattern available for a special price for my blog members and pics of my clean house

Hi, I don't have the pattern on my website yet, but she is available here for a few days until I get her on my website.  I am offering the pattern for the special price of $6.00 to any of my blog readers. Just use the paypal button on the side to order her. The pattern is ready to ship out Monday.
I finally been doing some cleaning, can't believe how dirty a house can get in just a month.  Now that I moved everything and vacuumed all those dust bunnies from behind the Christmas Decorations, I wanted to share some of my home pics with you.

Since, my daughter is getting ready to move into my dad's house, I have to get the treasures out of there that I am keeping from him.  This is supposed to be an antique table, not sure how old, I put it in front of the window, I just love it.  My mom loved crocks, and the lamp with flicker light was one of her favorites.

This is a corner cupboard, that I purchased at Through the Country door. I have it full of candles and my collections of cookie molds.

These are 2 other cupboards that I purchased from Through the Country Door.

I love these canister I bought off ebay, they have a fake front to put dried beans in.  I went to the dollar store and purchased quite a few bags of beans.

A view of my dining room, as you can see it is hard to get a picture without a dog somewhere in it.  I bought this table and chair set at a country store some time ago. I keep it covered with old quilts I have collected.

I have a real small kitchen, at times it is so frustrating because I don't have enough counter room. When we redid the kitchen, I was able to get the off white distressed cabinets and floor tile that looks like our wood floor.

Now that Christmas is over, time to put my bagholder back out, I purchased this from Maureen at Sweet Meadows Farm. I absolutely love her.

This is the fireplace that I got from my dad.  He had the logs with the sterno fuel, but my hubby had bought me the fake electric set a few years ago for Christmas and they fit perfectly. So now, I have a fire burning all the time. I am getting their collection of crocks and bean pots, trying to find a place for them. I have quite a few boxes still down at my dad's house to unpack and figure out where to put it all.

This is a view of my living room, do you see my dad's poodle, laying is his favorite place. I have had these couches for a while now, I keep thinking I want to change them out, but then all I have to do is change the quilts and it looks different, I am going to order some new braided rugs, these are getting pretty worn.

Here it the view in front of the window, see the doggie bed in the corner, that is where my half blind and deaf dogs likes to sleep. The curtains are a blue pin striped fabric. Can you tell I love quilts.
I still have to tackle the bedroom and craft room nightmare.

And finally, it was the other cats turn to sleep in the bowl.  Now that is has finally gotten cold, they are in a lot more, so I guess I will keep the bowl empty for now, so they have a bed.
Remember if you are interested in the Valentine Annie pattern she will be available here for $6.00 ppd. to my blog readers, when I put her on the website she will be regular price of $7.95.


  1. Hi Sweetie...
    I am so excited about you offering the Valentine Annie pattern. I clicked right on over to order her. I just wanted you to know that it will come through as Tony Smith, but it is me Sherry Smith @ Country Wings in Phoenix. I am so excited about trying to make a doll. I love to sew, and I haven't made any in a long while, but I am going to try as I need to make a couple or so for Valentine's Day. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity.
    Can't wait. I am going to start looking for Valentine fabric.

    Have a beautiful Sunday. Country hugs sweetie, and thanks again. Sherry
