If you would like to get a feel for what my house looked like before and after, go to my blog archive down the right side. Click on the date 08(19) entries. You will be surprised at what we started with.
Keep in mind this looks like a small house but there are 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchens. 2 bedrooms are upstairs, 2 on the main floor, one of which we have turned into a small dining room as I like space in my kitchen, and 2 in the basement. The basement is fairly light and bright and also has a small 2 piece, ancient bathroom and a really sad kitchen. We eventually want to take the little bathroom out and the small kitchen and turn them into a very large Bathroom with a very large bath tub or jacuzzi......but thats another day.......

If you have the time and the money and want to retire, SMOOTH ROCK FALLS, Ontario Canada is the place to come...We bought this house for 25,000.00 in 2007 and there are lots of nice houses here, that don't require the work ours does for under 40,000.00. You can even buy houses here for under 10,000.00! Seriously!

These are my own design...featuring 100% cotton mesh and 100% cotton toppers. These toppers add a lot of stability to the mesh portion of the bag along with pretty designs. These bags are meant for large items that are bought at the market by item and not by weight as the bags themselves do add weight. So when you are at the market and they want to dump those potaotes from the basket into a plastic bag, give them your pretty cotton mesh bag. Great for ears of corn, brocolli, celery, lettuce....tons of stuff!!!

It's been months!!

I can't believe it's been months since I have blogged! I was busy getting ready to travel round trip, over 1,600 miles to a big earth day Celebration at a school in ST. Catherines...
My computer has crashed and I am waiting for it to be fu\ixed, as soon as that happens I will post some pictures!

I found a great quote today and I just had to use it in my Etsy shop:

How far must suffering and misery go before we see that even in the day of vast cities and powerful machines, the good earth is our mother and that if we destroy her, we destroy ourselves? Author: Paul Bigelow Sears
