Oh Boy! Here goes...after prompting from one of my T.D.I.P.T sisters I am going to attempt this blogging thing. Let me begin by telling you a bit about myself. I LOVE country primitives, antiquing and old houses with lots of character! I create folk art dolls and prim items for your home. I have only been creating for about 4 years now and it is only one of my passions, my biggest being my family. I lived, worked and raised 2 children in California most of my adult life. When thinking about retiring my closest and dearest friend Diane and I decided we'd do this together and started looking on line for desirable places to live. My daughter played a part in this too and sent us lots of housing possibilities. Atlas! We found the one we thought we couldn't live without so Diane, her husband Brent, and I flew out to New York to take a look. We were so excited only to find out that sometimes pictures are not what they seem. Since we were only going to be there for the weekend we took it upon ourselves (without the realtor) to browse the area. Just when we thought our venture was all for not we happened across the house we live in now. We sent Diane to knock on the door to see if we could possibly get a look inside. The owner was happy to have us come in. From that point the process began and here we are. I am very happy to be able to call this place home.

It was Summer when we arrived and since then the shutters have been removed and new paint colors appeared. This quaint little village here in upstate New York where we chose to settle has lots of history and one of the biggest draws are the friendly people. I just love it here!

Thank you for visiting my first attempt and Thank You Peanut for all your help getting me started.
