Today was one of those days - I accomplished so much in one day and then there are days when I barely get one thing finished.
Between doing laundry, website clean up, cooking a wonderful pot roast dinner and sewing orders it was packed full.

I did get a couple pictures of some of the things we bought in PA - I’m not happy where the blue table is though…it’s not in its final place but had to put it someplace for now. It really looks awful next to the red plaid sofa so maybe this week I can get some spare time to re-organize my den and family room and get things where I want them….and take some final pictures.

I did buy 4 different kinds of wool from a fabric outlet - only $10.99 per yard!!! I'm going to make myself a WOOL PENNY RUG for once!

I really do love the table - it has a bin in the center underneath that I want to put some pretties in…I think a little light would be cute in there too.

I bought a couple Penny style pictures from a great designer - here's a sheep one I just

The dress in the hall pegs and the one on the cupboard we got as well - I’m really getting into this homespun and fabric thing for decorating.

I can’t say enough how much I LOVE the new cabinet in the bathroom - been wanting one for sometime but never found the right color. Oh, and I bought Hannah and her dog sitting on top too!

I also bought some Pewter spoons as well - needed some for my spoon board but they are for sale if anyone is in need of them - oh the two forks are for sale too! $20 for each item.

We didn’t take many pictures this time but I did get a picture of one of my favorite places we pass on route 23 on our way to Valley Forge…It’s the Poole Forge Mansion - I finally got to snap a picture and the grounds are just beautiful, especially with the new snow
Isn't this place pretty?
Here’s a little about the Forge…
Nestled into the hillside along the Conestoga creek, sits the once vibrant iron plantation called Poole Forge. The spectacular 1700’s Iron Masters mansion, paymasters house, tenant houses, lime kilns and covered bridge date back to 1859.

TaTa for now!
