Until next time~~hugs, Jen

I got it!!!!!...I couldn't wait to show it to you all!!!...I have wanted this book FOREVER!!...I have been trying to build my book collection and I'm always checking for bargains on ebay...Well, this book usually runs for $50 when I see it...And I had resolved myself to thinking if I wanted it I was going to have to pay that much...But on Saturday I did another search and there it was next to the one that was $54....I had to keep looking at it for it to register...DID IT SAY $1.69????????....YES!!!!!!!....Ok, what is the gimick???...But I got it and it is now in my hands!!!!...It is gently used...A ebayer was selling library books...So I now am the proud owner of Mary Emmerling's "American Country South"....She has other ones from around the US like American Country West, but the south one seemed to be harder to find...For me at least...And at $1.69....I'm so excited!!..And it is hardback!!...So I want to share some pictures of the south with you!!

Until next time!!!...hugs Jen

Hi everyone!!!...I hope everyone is having a good week so far!!...Not much going on here...Just doing some cleaning out, working on paper mache boxes, and I did pull out some of my Fall items...The temps here in Georgia are still in the high 80's...In fact it was 92 yesterday...And it's humid even at 2:00 am...So I'm enjoying everyone elses Fall decorating, but waiting on mine a little longer...But I thought I'd share a few pics of my Fall waiting...Just waiting to be put out!!!

Along with some faux indian corn I bought right before Christmas
last year ...I think I got it for 90% off since they still had it left from the Fall season....

Started not to get it since it was almost Christmas, but sooooo glad I did now!!!...Here it is on my faux redware plate....Oh, I may have to hang it from the ceiling...Luke is enjoying checking out something new in the house...

I added a new big halloween pillow to my selling blog....I'm really liking this one!!

Until next time!!~~~~~hugs, Jen

A New Member Of The Family and Some New goodies....

Hi everyone!...I hope you're having a good weekend...I'm still waiting on signs of Fall here...The air is still going and the temps are in the high 80's to low 90's....I watch the weather every night to see a sign of cooler temps, but not for the next week...So I'm trying to hold out on my Fall decorating, but at this rate it may never be put out....So we'll see this week....

But first I want to introduce you to the newest member of the family..This is Tillie...I just got her this week...I got her from Mona of My Old Crow Primitives on Lemon Poppyseeds.....She fits in perfectly with my other primitive folk dolls...Taylor doesn't share my enthusiasm for my dolls...But I LOVE introducing her to them when I get them..ha!...Sometimes they peek around her bedroom door and wave at her..ha!ha!

This is what I've been up to besides x-stitching...Now they have to be taken outside and splattered with black paint and then brought back in to be stained and varnished...Hopefully that will be done this week...I would like to have my table back!!!

Guess what came in yesterday??!!!???...My 2010 calendar and Jill Peterson's "The Settlement" book....Did you hear me gasp when I took them out of the box???....They are AWESOME!!!....Such eye candy!!

This is the calendar my sweet friend, Lori Ann, sent me for 2009 that I've been enjoying all year....

The 2010 calendar....I got them from Jen (Just Country Happenings blog)...Most were already taken, but she had a few available....

And when I found out Millie Huckaby's house was in this beautiful book I knew I had to have it...I will definitely be getting the first one also called "The Homestead"....A must in your collection!!!

Here is a glimpse at 2 of the pages....

And can I contain my excitement!!!???!!!...Months back Mr. taylors* farmhouse (ha!ha! I had to explain the name to him because my sweet husband does read my blog and I wanted to join in renaming our husbands like I've been reading on other blogs)...Anyway, Mr. taylors*farmhouse bought a dvd recorder that tapes things from a tape to a dvd...So last night he got out my tapes that I had all my favorite parts saved from the HGTV Country at Home and Mary Emmerling episodes and copied them all onto dvd's....I sat and watched some today as it was copying while Mr. taylors*farmhouse went to get us something to eat....I also had hour long episodes of shows of Shaker houses, log cabins, and farmhouses....I can't wait to sit some afternoons or evenings and just watch one primitive home after another...I thought the tapes would ruin, but now the hour after hour of my taping was saved...And what a treat it will be!!!!

That is all I have for now!!...I need to get to x-stitching!!..I have pork shops in the crock pot and I made a hashbrown casserole for dinner....YUM! YUM!

Oh, I finished a new x-stitch sampler that I will put on my selling blog maybe tomorrow evening...So be sure to check back if interested...

Until next time!!!...hugs, Jen
