Loved both quotes! Benjamin Franklin is one of my favorites! Love the song playing on your blog but it's warbled on my end - not sure if its my computer. Wishing you a lot of warmth in your cabin!

Dear friend you are filled with such inspiration...!!! I have to agree with "JANET" about the electricity!!! Many of the dolls Miss Barbara makes for the store have quotes from Ben Franklin written inconspicuously under their clothing...He was a wise man and you are a wise and clever woman!! XOXO

Hello Connie. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog today for that has made me find yours. I've enjoyed my visit here...I'll be adding you to my "blogs I follow"..if you don't mind.

I love the picture of your home that is in one of the post below...how very cozy it looks. We too heat only with wood..we've not turned our furnace on in years. You are right..it is work..but it's so warm and very satisfying that it makes it all worth it.

Sounds like we have much the same weather..we had our storms and such on the same days..and my husband also plows.

Looking forward to getting to know you.

Take care,
Doreen

Hi Connie! You got me...I thought your magazine was a real one and tried clicking on it. After I looked closely at it I realized it was you! Hee Hee! And I really wanted to peak inside. Your talent is amazing and I wouldn't be surprised if your home was on the cover of a magazine one day! Have a lovely sunday afternoon. Love and hugs xoxox Jenn

Two summers ago I had the fun of site seeing in Philadelphia and "walked" in the same streets as did Ben Franklin, I love Old Town Philly! I also agree about the electricity, what would we do without it, no internet to keep up with our friends!
Hugs, Martha

Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying, "Hello", Connie!....G'nite! LOL Janet :)

Hi Connie....I wish you could stop by for tea also! We could get into a lot of trouble together if we lived closer I think. What fun! Someday maybe our trips to Lancaster will coincide so that we can meet up for lunch or something. Have a lovely day today. Hugs and love ~ Jenn
