If anyone wants to find me on facebook

I have been cleaning out my attic, things that I love but just have no room for are for sale. I also am trying to sell things on Etsy, but I have not totally figured out what I am doing yet. I do know I sold an old Victorian night gown, and what eBay charged me in the end, I may of made 2 dollars off of it. Thank God I got it for nothing.

I have been missing in action on here because to be honest with you, I forgot about this site and I got caught up and addicted to facebook.  Plus, since I was on here last, we gutted and put in a new/old looking nautical bathroom and bedroom, and finished our dinning room.  We still have a lot to do to this old Victorian home. We are doing the work ourselves, and that makes me feel like we can make it our way with our own hands...

Right now we are on pause, my husband had a cycle accident. I am trying to hold him down so he does not re-break a rib that badly bruised his lung. He is more important to me then the house or anything else, so I will not let him do anything heavy or stretch to far. His neck is still hurting him, but believe me, it could of been a lot worse then it was. He was going to work, about 4:30- 5 O'clock in the morning, still very dark outside. He never saw or expected a phone line to be hanging across the road at neck level. Thank God he had a windshield on his bike, it saved him from becoming decapitated. But, it grabbed the bike and threw him and the bike to the ground. He is now making jokes, saying it reminds him of a Roadrunner cartoon. He said he could imagine himself stretching the line as far as it could go, then it shooting him backwards. I told him, NOT FUNNY!!!!

Hope this finds everyone feeling Gods arms holding them.

This is some updates on what we were up to when I was missing in action


We had the chimney worked on, the foundation was not holding it up, so we had to have it done over. I love writing it fresh concrete, lol...I have our son's names and the date.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New year.

This is Diogie, He is standing on a pile of snow the road crew made from plowing the road. He is about 2 feet off the ground.

This is my front door decoration for Christmas, I will probably keep most of this up all winter for my winter decoration outside.

Trash picking...... yes I do that

I live not far from a SR. Center, I love to go there and see what is being thrown away. This week was a great week for me. When I first pulled in I saw the spindles on this chair. Not sure the chair was whole, I still knew I wanted the spindles. When I got close I saw this beautiful chair. I called the grounds keeper over that I know and asked him if this was really trash......... I hit pay dirt. The more I looked the more I saw. The trunk is also a part of that trash pile. You know I will be going back there again.

House next door

They were taking the house next door to me down and throwing away all the old rocks. Needless to say I lugged them home. wheelbarrow by wheelbarrow. I now have more then I need, but I am sure I will find a place for all of them.

Jim is at it again, I work at an Amish market and they were throwing away roofing, so I grabbed it out of the trash. My side door on the house didn't have an protection from the weather when you were walking in. So needless to say, you got a shower unlocking the door if it was raining.

Here is the proof I helped. I gave blood doing it, lol.

Hodge Podge Lodge

This is my dinning room. My aunt who owned the house before me painted the dinning room purple. right now I am leaving that way. In time I want to put hardwood floors in the living room and dinning room. I want to cover the chairs and paint the dinning room set white.

This is my living room, we had to take the old walls out and put up dry wall. Thank God Jim is so handy, he can do anything.I really love this bump out in my living room, we can eat there and watch TV at the same time.
