THRIFTY FINDS


love

Good Morning Primfolk,  hope you are having an enjoyable one so far..........We are going back into the deep freeze this week here in The Peg, has been really mild out the past couple of days, so nice to go outside and not freeze instantly............. Popped into the Thrift store yesterday afternoon to go look for a little treasure or two.... found this nice Roseville mug, heavy as heck but love the color, for seventyfive cents, yahoo!!!!!,   a cute pie plate, love the little picture of farm life,  for fifty cents and a couple of old Country Home magazines, always enjoy to curl up with a good magazine,for 10 cents each, a total $1.45, well spent I think..............Going to visit my Mother this afternoon, always a joy to spend time with her..........Then this evening I am going with Cheryl to visit her son Blake in the hospital........Wishing you all a wonderful day, Blessings Francine.

SWEET DEAN


 Morning Primfolk,  another milder day here, so nice to have a little break from the cold, cold temps, but they are coming back I`m told..........Want to Thank you for all the prayers for me and the family at this horrific time, means so much to me, touched my heart............Cheryl is trying to stay strong for her boys but has her meltdowns, as is expected.........I have known her for many many years, she is my ex Sister-in-Law, I was with her Brother for 28 years but things happen....... Cheryl and myself have remained close, like another Sister, so it breaks my heart for her loss........I spent the evening yesterday watching little Dean while she visited her Son in the hospital, his legs and arm were really busted up but thank the Lord he is alive..........Dean is such a good boy, funny as children can be, even though no Mama, now no Papa, he is so so happy, he uplifted my spirits so much for that little while.......Once again thanks for your caring hearts,  much needed, Warm Blessings Francine.

SAD DAY


Afternoon, this is a sad post for me today....My girlfriend Cheryl, the one who is helping her Son raise little Dean, her Grandson, lost her Husband last  night when a car hit him while he and both her Sons were helping tow one of the Son`s car out of the ditch.........There is a terrible stretch of road with sharp curves and while her Husband and one Son were in the back of the truck getting a chain out to use for towing the car, they both were struck by a car coming around the curve... but they were on the opposite side of the road, don`t get it.........Her Son, Dean`s Dad,  has both legs broken but it is her Husband that lost his life on the way to the hospital, the other Son was in the car............So so sad, I cannot wrap my head around this, but she could have lost all three family members...........Please keep them in your prayers..........Live, Love, Laugh everyday for you never know what lies ahead,  Thank -You Francine.

HAPPY FRIDAY

Morning Primfolk,  another cold A.M.  here with  snow falling,  running out of room to put the snow in the yard......I shoveled the walk twice yesterday afternoon and the walk is loaded once again this morn.........Can`t believe it`s the last weekend of January already, but glad to see it go, maybe February will be a tad warmer weather wise, lets hope.......................I have no big plans this weekend,  hibernating in the warm cozy  house I guess,  will find myself be puttering around   decorating with a few more hearts for Valentines day that is  coming up fast,   maybe cuddle up and watch some movies, read a book, look through magazines,Pinterest...But... what I should be doing is decluttering, going through the basement that holds boxes of things I don`t use or want......but will I?..............Anywho, wishing you all a wonderful weekend, Enjoy!!!! Warm Blessings Francine.

OH BOTHER

Morning, what a time I had last night, I lost my blog, Google took it away on me, but I guess it was my fault. They wanted my email address, well, have a few, got mixed up, had tried to many, them boom, no blog....for my safety they said, my prim heart sank....Tried to do what they wanted, screwed that up, dug myself deeper, when it comes to computers, ahh, not to swift, anywho, everything stopped......oh no!!!!! I was so sad, going to bed with thoughts of losing all my wonderful blogging buddies, what am I going to do........Woke with a heavy heart, tried again to see if my blog was back while the coffee perked, NO, oh boy, went and had my cup of coffee........Then came back a while later, clicked on a comforting blog, The Cranky Crow, saw my name on the comments from her last post, clicked on Primitive Stars, and voila,  my blog came up, Oh Happy Day, Thank You Lord........I feel whole again................Wanted to wish my American blogging friends a Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day,  enjoy the Holiday........Happy Blessings Francine.

BAAAAAA

Greetings, hope you all had a great weekend,  now here we are starting another week,  already in the middle of January.............I had a very quite weekend, just laying low, kinda nice........The weather was the culprit, started out Friday evening with the blizzard blowing in then the fridged temps, still really cold out there, all week the days are with a wicked wind chill, oh well...............Yesterday I decided to make myself a beeswax lamb with a mold I had,  always wanted one,  so I melted a big beeswax candle I had bought last summer at a yard sale, poured it in the lamb mold, wow, had just enough with the one big candle, yey!!!!....let sit and harden most of the day,  then popped out the lamb,  very nice, melted the bit I left in the pot, sealed the mold together with it,  so far so good.......I like the blacked look so thought I would try to rub black paint on the lamb, then sprinkled cinnammon  and clove over it,  think the lamb turned out not to bad,  tied some homespun around the neck with a little rusty bell, put it in my wooden bowl on the table and thats all she wrote,  my excitement for the day.............Enjoy the day, Prim Blessings Francine.

ONE YEAR OLD VISITER

DEAN
Good Morning Primfolk,  hope you are all well this Tuesday...........The weather is very mild for January, usually we are in a deep freeze at this time of year but nice to have it milder, but with the mild weather means more snow on the way.............. Yesterday had my girlfriend pop in with her little Grandson Dean, he had his first Birthday last month, he sure is growing, walking, jabbering  so much, not to sure what he is saying but sure is cute. Granny is doing a wonderful job raising him along with her Son,  Dean goes for some heart tests on Friday to check out some things as to why his Mom passed away at the young age of 21, so he goes for tests to see if he has any complications of the heart, linked to his Mother, hope all is well with the little guy.................Wishing you all a great day, Warm Blessings Francine.

Enjoying a quite morning, sipping a hot  cup of coffee watching  two bunnies outside the front window,   two small brown furry balls against the white snow...............I do enjoy Winter, being born and raised here on the cold Winter Prairies of  Canada,  the winters are long and cold,  so we learn to enjoy our Canadian winters.......... as kids we were always playing outdoors, sledding, skating, building snowmen, then iwhen our feet froze we came in the warm house for a yummy hot cup of cocoa made with love from Mom, ahhhhhh good Winter memories..........  So Janurary I  find myself   is the time to slow it down,  snuggle in and nest,   don`t get me wrong, come March, I want Spring but for now I will cuddle in the cozy warm house, read a good book, start rug hooking and enjoy the winter landscapes.........I have always been drawn pictures of houses  on a snowy  night, the  glow of a lamp shining through windows,  warms my heart........so I thought I would post some pictures I love to warm you on a cold winters day............Wishing you all a cozy warm weekend, Prim Blessings Francine.
