Living Room

This picture is the living room. The grandfather clock was made by my dad in 1978 for a Christmas present for me. The cross is always hung by the front door in what ever house I live in. It was my grandpa's, my grandma had it made for him from wood from his child hood home that was being tore down.The five small square picture frames(which you can't tell) are of my parents wedding. The sofa welllllll....I like the look but its not that comfortable to lay down on if you know what I mean???LOL

This picture is of the fake dear heart made it for me as a Christmas present so I would have a place to hang the big kids Christmas stockings...The large sampler on the left my grandma made and gave it to me.The cherry night stand was my grandmas and then my moms and then mine.

The dry sink I bought from a friends grandma she was down sizing and wanted to make sure that it got a good home cos that was one on the first pieces her and her husband had bought as a newly married couple. I love it.

This chest of drawers belonged to my grandmother I just love the look of it in my living room.

Most of the things in my living room are from my mom who received them from her mom. To me they are very precious

Until next Time kim

Its Fair Time

Welcome.......Around these parts its Fair time.......that's a big deal......and everyone is getting their projects ready. I was in 4-H for 8 years (cooking). One year I was selected to cook - off at the local fair in breakfast foods. I was around 11 or 12 years old. I remember being so nervous up on stage that I couldn't think straight. I made a breakfast of scrambled eggs,sausage, peaches with blueberries and hot chocolate with mini marshmallows. I was competing against girls alot older and they were making yeast cinnamon rolls, bread etc. and I won.......I couldn't believe it I was excited but I was so glad I wasn't old enough to go to state to compete because I know I would of been to nervous. LOl I am taking my little grand baby to the fair on Wednesday, I think she will love it, shes 9 months and can moo like a cow so she's already into that fair scene....Sorry I've tried to up load some pictures but i just don't know why they won't go?????Very frustrating!!!!

Until Next
