~Trip to Tennessee ~

We took off a few weeks ago and went to Tennessee to visit family. We had a wonderful time. The Yorkie Girls went with us. 

They had a lot of fun on the trip.

We stayed in this pretty cabin in the woods.

The inside was very pretty too. We had fog every morning.

We passed this cute bike every time we went up and down the mountain.

We did see some colors on the trees on our way home.

We stopped at a rest stop and this is what the building looked like.

We had a wonderful time and I can’t wait until we can get back to Tennessee.

Until next time…Cindy


~Making Jewelry~

Many of you know that I used to do shows and that I made a lot of jewelry. I still have a lot of jewelry pieces left over…so I decided to make some pieces for me. The first pieces I made was seven yarn wrap bracelets with pretty metal buttons. 

This one is for my granddaughter.

Next…I made two pretty bracelets.

I love how these turned out. 

I’ve been wearing them with my Apple Watch and a few small bracelets.

I really like the look of these bracelets with my watch.

Hope to be blogging more often. 

Until next time…. ~Cindy

~Trip to Nashville~

It has been awhile since I posted on my blog. I would love to share my trip to Nashville with all of you. My Granddaughter would like to go to college in Nashville. So my girls, me and my granddaughter went to Nashville to check out Vanderbilt College.

The pictures I’m sharing are pictures of Downtown Nashville.

Great Ice cream shop…the girls said it was yummy ice cream.

Pretty Foundton…with lots of Country singers names on the stones on the walkway.

Downtown Nashville…

We had a wonderful time. I hope to go back to Nashville sometime in the future.

Until next time…. ~Cindy

~Welcoming Fall~

Welcome Fall…so glad you are here!!


Fall is my favorite time of the year.


I  can’t wait for the leaves to start changing  outside.


We are planning some hiking trips…when the colors change.


Not sure when that might be…it is in the upper 70’s today.


Loving how everything looks in the evening….


…with the soft glow of the candle lights.


Hope everyone is enjoying the start of Fall…wherever you are.

Until next time… Blessings from me to you.  ~Cindy

~More Prairie Style~

I was looking thru my Prairie Style magazines and realized that I already have several décor pieces that are perfect for this decorating style. So I thought I would show you the magazine photo décor and the my version with my décor.

I hope to clean the top of this cart up. It has wax on it and was this way when I purchased it. if it doesn’t clean up very good. My husband is going to put some new old pieces of wood on it.

I was thrilled that I was able to start getting some Prairie Style without any cost. I will be looking at the huge Flea Market in September for some new old pieces that say Prairie Style.

Hope everyone enjoy seeing the start of my Prairie Style.

Until next time…blessings from me to you…..~Cindy



















~Loving the Prairie Style~

I picked up the newest issue of Prairie Style…and I just realized how much I’m loving the this style. I’ve been getting this magazine for the last 5 years. The first issue I got was Romantic Prairie Style and then Country Sampler took it over and I have 4 issues of the Prairie Style magazine.

So I thought I would share some of the Prairie touches that I’ve added to my home. Loving this little gathering with a rusty funnel on a mason jar…an old tin scoop…and a little mason jar with white flowers.


A favorite find…an old coal bucket that I found while hunting for goodies at the Endless Yard Sale a few years ago. My quilt hanging in our dining room says it will fit in right at home in the Prairie Style.


The rag wreath that my blogging friend, Cheryl, gave me for my birthday is perfect for Prairie Style of decorating.


I think our fireplace has a Prairie Style feel to it…with old windows, mason jars, and old spools of lace and a huge old lantern and white wood bowls.


I love this gathering that is between the living room and dining room…my huge clock with a gold paint and little rusty spots. Down below is a pear made out of metal and old twine…with and old fashion light and some flowers.


And my quilt in the dining room says Prairie Style for sure…but I see some farmhouse touches too.


I think that I have found my decorating style that I want in my home.

Until next time…. blessings from me to you. ~Cindy

~Malking Dolls with Scarves~

Back in February…I made a doll for my blogging friend, Cheryl, for her birthday. I loved this pretty dark brown scarf that I used for her dress.


Then this month…my friend, Linda, had her birthday and I decided to make her a doll too. I used a peach scarf with black strips.


Here is a close up of her little sewing goodies that are on the doll’s dress.


Well…after making those two dolls. I decided to do a makeover on the angel doll that hangs in our dining room.


She had a cream colored dress when I got her and it is still on her. I just added the long brown scarf on her and also added a sweet pinafore and a vintage pin. So if I change my mind…I just have to take the scarf off and she is back to the cream dress.


Hoping to blog more often…now that I’m retired from doing shows. I had a yard sale last weekend…trying to get rid of left over stuff from all the shows that I did. Sadly…we only had a few people stop by our yard sale. So most of it went to the Goodwill. My niece and her husband are just starting to do shows…so we gave them our indoor booth and a friend of my daughter’s is buying our tent, because he wants to do some outdoor shows.

Now I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my life…whatever it might be.

Until next time…. blessings from me to you. ~Cindy
