It's been a bit Quiet here on the Blog and there's a good reason why ...!

Well Hey There You all ..
Yep it's been quiet here on the blog .. pinterest and our twitter account for a while now and there's a good reason why...
About a week ago ... we came home to a sweet little note on our front door ..
The owners of the home we rent have decided to sell it after 7 years of us being here. And we literally have 60 days to vacate...
It's funny when we first moved into this house it was supposed to be for 1 yr ... to give us time after coming back from out of state to find a home to buy. Well after being here for just 3 weeks my Dad ended up having a triple bi-pass and then the story just lingers there after with his health issues to present day.( for those of you that don't know my parents and I share a home together)  I think we went 1 year out of the 7 where all was good with his health and we were just deciding to make the leap and find a home 2 years ago when his health took a turn for the worst again ...So 7 years in a home we only planned to stay 1 year in ... and here we are with literally 60 days to figure out where we are going .. can we buy something we love in that time and get moved ..
I'll be the first to admit I'm overwhelmed and even though I know God's in control and all will come out right it always has ... well that fear of the unknown is still creeping in to my mind .. the stress of looking around and seeing all that needs to be sold, packed and moved has been a constant battle the last week .. I'm praying .. I'm giving it to the Lord and taking it back and giving it back and taking it back ... LOL ! ...
Anyhow we have a big move ahead of us .. the days ahead are going to be full .. while we continue to keep the business up and running as long as we are able and we prepare to move ..
The part that excites us is to finally be buying a home again, getting into a place that is ours where we can actually paint and decorate it and make it a home of our own which we haven't been able to do in this home. It's been 7 long years of Navajo white walls .. and tile floors we detest . So in the new house  "No Tile Floors"  Please ... LOL ! ..
The biggest question is where ? We have considered moving out of state back to MO ..which is a place we have lived before .. but the question is, is that the right place for us or is staying here in CA the right choice .. so please pray that we will receive direction and we will make wise choices .....
I'll keep you all updated on where we end up ..
In the Meantime you all take care !

2nd Round of Vintage Valentines ~ Free Printables Clip Art

Well another Beautiful Monday Morning has rolled around once again here at the farmhouse. I hope you all had a beautiful weekend ..
I spent 12 hours on Saturday taking a Photography Class. Learning how to get out of "Auto" mode and into manual mode. I had a wonderful day .. Learned so much and can't wait to start applying all I have learned to my photos .. Well needless to say that long of a day and all that learning really tuckered me out so Yesterday I just spent the day resting and playing with Flossie.
 Looks like all of you in the South and East are in for quite storm ... well while you are whittling away your hours waiting for the storm to pass this is the perfect time to jump right in and get some cute Valentine projects made.
Well we are on the countdown to another fun Holiday ... "Valentines"...  I remember when I was a little girl I loved going to the store with my mom and picking out a pack of valentines. In my era they came wrapped in a little thin cardboard box wrapped in a decorative cellophane outer. I still actually have many that were given to me. In one class my teacher had us make large heart pockets out of construction paper and pasted them together so we had a place to keep all the valentines we were given in exchange in class ..  I still have that heart and all the valentines in it .. Abbey was always such a great mom and allowed me to keep many of the things I made in school. Today they are all tucked away in a trunk .. beautiful memories that I love to cherish.
So today here are 4 more Valentines that I found in our collection that I thought were just charming .. and I think these would be so great mixed with the other 4 I offered last week HERE ... for making valentine banners .. Print and cut them out and punch holes in each side and string them with some pretty ribbon or bakers twine ..  Or how about some simple placemats .. Print them on cardstock cut them out .. and then paste them into the center of a piece of construction paper or one of those paper doily placemats you can pick up at Wal-Mart etc.  There are so many ways to decorate with Vintage Valentines just let your imagination Soar ...

Don't forget to check out our "Free Printables" page HERE for more great items to use in your Craft Projects.
