Come Sit A Spell In My Kitchen

Well come on in!

This door comes into my kitchen from the back porch.
(I took these pictures on Friday and I don't know what the heck that white thing is by the back door!)

This apple butter yellow cupboard did not look like this when i purchased it for five bucks. In fact my husband thought I bought it for firewood! With some paint and some Warren Kimble calendar pages decoupaged on the doors...it looks pretty good now!

I got my white sink for 2 bucks at an auction.

This green hoosier was purchased for me by my mother.....long,long before I ever thought about getting married.

My husband made the primitive pantry cupboard.

My Raggedy Ann's and Andy's....no I did not make any of them. They all came from yard sales....but they do inspire me.

If you have an old chair that the bottom is coming out of it ....hang it on the wall, the dolls won't mind! Sarah, my neice gave it to me.

Do you see my little pumpkin pillow tuck?

An old snuff box holds my muffin and tart pans.

The pie safe belonged to my Grandmother....it is priceless to me!

A little peek into my laundry room..yes I painted the sign.

I posted some more pictures a couple of weeks ago of my house, if you missed it click here!Ya'll come back!

I DID IT!!!!!!!!!


I really should say WE did it.
As many of you know I got a new sewing/embroidery machine for my birthday....well it has been kicking my ***! The directions for it were not ADD friendly! On Sunday I broke 3 needles and said a lot of ugly words and I had not touched it all week. Yesterday my husband came home early....so I asked him if he would sit down with me and see what I was doing wrong. We went through the tutorial step by step. And there were a couple of things I was doing wrong.....but I got it now!!! Thanks to my sweet Joey! I was just over eager in the beginning
and thought I could jump right on it and go!

My sweet little Pumpkin!!! I think I will make this into a little pillow tuck ....it will be a keeper...since it was my first!
There ain't no stopping me now!

Huggins Inside Home Tour

This goes with the post below...so check it out to!

Huggins Home Tour

Yes, this is home I was telling you about! It is the Home of Clifton and Betty Huggins of Kinston North Carolina. I have a slide show that will show you the many lovely pieces inside the house...but in does not want to work right now. I will add it later!

The building for the General Store was moved here from another Lenoir County property. They collected these pieces for years before finally put them all in place here.


Oh look....this is were the goodies are! I let my Buddy Cheri go with me today, but I told her she can't come back without me, she might buy something I want....since I want it all! I should have blind folded her on the way over, LOL!

Did I tell girls.....I don't disapoint!
I hope I did not leave out any pictures....there was a lot! I have to say I love her big round dining room table...and I already told her If she ever gets ready to sell her stove that is on her back screened in porch, I want it! (It is kinda like Tammys)
I hope you enjoied the pictures as much as I enjoied the visit!

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
