Almost Spring?

Hello Everyone!

So sorry that you haven't heard from me for so long. I promise to try to be a much better blogger.

I don't know about all of you, but I am really weary of winter. We have had a couple of nice days, and now we are supposed to have a few rainy,cold yukky days this week.  I am a warm weather girl . Give me 85 degrees and sun and I am a happy camper!

I am trying to get some things done around this house that really need some attention too. Hubster and I went to Lowes the other day to get some paint for the foyer, staircase and upstairs hall.  Should have left him at home! We have this ongoing battle over paint. He wants all white walls. I am sick to death of white walls. I want to warm them up a bit. I did manage to get him to paint my living room a really nice cream. I love it. After threatening to leave him at Lowes, I did manage to get my cream paint for the foyer and hallway. We did get WHITE for the spare bedroom! I guess that was fair.

We also went to my favorite shop in the world to order ottomans for the chairs I bought last year. If you are ever in the Central Pennsylvaina area you HAVE to visit this shop. AMERICAN HERITAGE CRAFTERS  in Milton PA. All I can say is you will be drooling the whole time you are there. It is in an old shoe factory. They have evolved over several years to what the shop is now and all I can say is WOW . It is so beautiful you won't want to leave. Brick walls, wood floors, huge space, beautiful furniture, Johnson Benchworks, Martins chairs, Irvins tin. Very rustic. They are owned by Kuhns Brothers log Homes. They also have a huge area of salvage building supplies. So If your hubby is a do it yourselfer, you could lose him in there for days! I am getting off track here... they have a buy one get one free sale on the Johnson Benchwork special orders twice a year. I bought my chairs last year and didn't think I wanted ottomans...... Well, I decided I really do want ottomans so I ordered them .  Here are my chairs

I love these chairs. I'll take more pictures of the living room now that it is finished. I am pleased with the way it turned out. I need to hang some samplers that I stitched but I'm not sure where to hang them yet.

I finished some other stitching and a hooked rug since Christmas. I am determined to finish up some UFO's that have been hanging around for way too long. Next project will be to finish up some of the quilts that I have started. Here are some of the stitching and the hooked table runner I finished.

The colors in the table runner are nicer in person. This was one of my first attempts at hooking!

Well , I have rambled on long enough. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
Take care,

  1. I love the style of those chairs. Do they have a website to order from, because obviously Pennsylvania is a little out of the way for us lol. I will google them and see.
