I was thinking about down sizing and perhaps moving from down my country lane. I've spent my entire adult life fixing up these old homes I live in and I think I am ready for a small home that doesn't require so much up keep.  So that being said I was looking on the internet to just get a feel to what was out there.  I ran across this house for sale by owner. (picture above) so I drove by and the picture doesn't do it justice.  It was so adorable that I nearly freaked out.  I drove bye really slow taking pictures, and then turned around and drove back by again.  wow I was really blowed away (I am hoping the owner doesn't think I a stocker)lol  but man it was so dog gone cute!  The ad said they were holding an open house on Sunday so I thought I'll go and just have a look.  When I get there I knock on the door (at the front door I "am in love with this home) and the home owner  answers, I ask if shes having an open house and she looks shocked, she said no you must have the wrong house I said is this 1142 she said  yes but were not selling our house.  I was so disappointed that it most of shown because she ask me if I want to come in and take a tour.  Why of course I do... Well friends let me tell you that if was even cuter inside.  OMG I nearly passed out because it was sooooooo adorable.  Colonial inspired  painted cupboards through out, colonial furniture,wall paper stenciling, hard wood floors,beams.  Her husband made all the old looking baskets. Well I am in love I am hoping they'll grab their toothbrush and clothes and let me have it lock stock and barrel. They had thought about selling but after looking around they decided  they would be better off  to just stay where they were.  Oh well I was disappointed but they were such a nice couple to have met that is was worth it.  I wish I had more pictures  of their home to show you but how rude would that have been.....he he he... Maybe we'll see it featured in Country Sampler??    Well until next time .............kim

My Most prized Possession

The love of my life:  She was born October 20Th.  2008. This little bundle at first sight  stole my heart so completly that even now 1 year later that moment in time still brings tears to my eyes.  Now when she sees me her eyes light up and she can't wait to come to me.  When she gives me a kiss and a hug I believe my heart stops beating for a split second because it can't hold any more joy and happiness. 
Shes already a country girl ,because from the first day they brought her home they started reading to her and she loves to be read to.  Her favorite book is anything about farm animals .  If you tell her to go get a book she digs and digs  in all her books and always brings a farm animal book and likes to kiss the pony pictures .  She loves ponys .Went nuts for the fair ponys that she got to ride:Notice the cowgirl boots (gotta)  have those to ride a pony!  Saturday we took her to a farm market where she got to see animals and pick out her second pumpkin.She was named after my mom  Vivian who had passed away before she was born. her daddy thought up her name as   Livian Reign .............and yes she is our queen....Lol  until next time...............kim
