I Won An Award!

Tricia from Hillcresthome Prims nominated me for The Versatile Blogger award and I am so appreciative.

I am to list seven things about me that you probably don't know.

1-I have played piano for 49 years. Started when I was 8 and trained in the Classical style. Now I play everything from gospel to ragtime to classical to lullabyes for my sweet grands. I also teach piano.

2-I suffered a double brain aneurysm in 1997 and give God the praise for my healing. I have short term memory loss but each day is a gift for me.

3-I built two 13 foot Blackfoot Native American teepees!

4-In my lifetime I have made dozens of dolls and give each one a name before it leaves my home. Many of the names are actual ancestors names.

5-I enjoy researching 19th century recipes and cooking them on my late 19th century wood cookstove.

6-One of the simple thrills of my life is going to my chicken coop and gathering the daily eggs. It is a blessing from the Lord,...and my three little hens.

7-I enjoy collecting American Country primitives in original finish and love researching and executing old, worn finishes on my projects.

Now you know a bit more about me. Hope I didn't scare you too much!
