Whatcha Workin on Wednesday

Today is the day to try and catch up on all my housework that has been piling up while I have been busy working on my primitives for the craft shows. I really don't mind cleaning house.....I love it when my house is clean and organized. I am also hoping either today or tomorrow to get some of my primitives listed on ebay. So if anyone is interested in my door dolls or any of my primitive items, my sellers name is goingretta. You can look at past posts from the craft shows to see pictures, I will be listing a variety of these items.

I have been on a cooking frenzie lately which my husband has enjoyed. But if I keep it up by the holidays, I am going to be a two-ton-Tessie. I have been watching The Food Network lately and been getting inspired. My husband and I are going to cook together Saturday night, we would much rather cook together at home then go out for dinner. I enjoy being in the kitchen with him, he is such a good helper. We are going to make Shrimp Scampi with Linguini. Here the link to the recipe if any of you wound like to try it, it's delicious. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/shrimp-scampi-with-linguini-recipe2/index.html So we have a date Saturday night and I am looking forward to it.


Thinking about cooking together reminds me of our beautiful kitchen we had. Brent and I had so much fun cooking together and spending time together there. We sold our house this past April and moved here to Rapids. We miss our beautiful house but someday we will build again. Brent likes his job here in Wisconsin Rapids as a Cranberry Marsh Manager, he loves growing cranberries and is good at it. So one step at a time, in God's time we will have that beautiful kitchen again.

Here is a picture of the living room just off the kitchen...as you can tell I am kinda missing my house today. I will get over it, it's just a stage and with the holidays coming it makes me a bit homesick.

Here's our tree from last year at the house...I LOVE a big tree.

Brent, I and our grandson Noah


I will leave you with a few Goodwill and Thrift store treasures I found yesterday.

I am wanting to try some new jello salad mold recipes this Christmas so I found 2 different size molds for 25 cent's each at the Thrift Store..I was thrilled. I found this white metal towel rack shelf for the bathroom at the Goodwill for $3.99 (a hanging project for Brent this Saturday). And I LOVE hobnail Fenton milk glass. I found this beauty at the Thrift Store for $5.99. Brent thinks the hobnail is ugly but he appreciates that I like it and just laughs. And then I found this little Christmas tree candle holder for $1.99. Seeing that most of my Christmas decos are in storage, I am trying to get a few inexpensive items to put around the house this year.


One of my first Christmas decorations for the year, I love poinsettias. I am hoping to get the tree up this week along with some other festive decos.

Have a GREAT and PRODUCTIVE day..... God Bless you all.....Rhonda

I can see why you adored your home. What a cozy place! But I love your positive attitude as you look forward to the future wherever the Lord leads you.

... and of course your finds are just wonderful. How sweet that your husband humors you in your hobnail interest. My husband affords me the same grace with my love for items that look like that should have long been sent to the landfill! LOL Sometimes I can still the look in his eyes that says, "You didn't really PAY for that did you?" LOL But he doesn't say a word. True love!

Christmas blessings,
