To find even more of these fabulous goods, just type FFOFG in Etsy's search engine. You'll be amazed at what you'll find there! The Old Farmhouse Gathering Team is Etsy's premier primitive group. We have been in existence for nearly four years..almost as long as Etsy has been around, and our membership continues to grow stronger. The talents of our members simply amaze me..there's such a wide variety of folk artisans, artists, whimsical creations..anything and everything primitive! That, plus our members are quite possibly the nicest folks you could ever hope to meet.

So be sure to take a look at the slideshow and hop right on over to Etsy tomorrow don't want to miss out on these treasures!

Be on the Lookout...

The Old Farmhouse Gathering Team is gearing up for our new promotion..Fall Fun at the Farmhouse! We have tons of members participating in this Celebration of the Fall season so you're sure to find something you can't live without!

We're including all items related to Fall as well as Halloween this year, and I know this season is a favorite of many primitive-lovers. I can't ever have enough Halloween decorations, myself. I guess they remind me of my childhood when we spent many hours planning and helping to make our costumes, carving pumpkins and handing out treats.

You'll have lots of "eye-candy" to explore when the Celebration begins..keep watch for details!

Where Did the Time Go?

Unbelievable. My first-born grandson, Brendan, has graduated from Middle School and is on his way to the "tween" world of High School in the Fall. This young man began his life born with an Immune Deficiency disease called Hypogammaglobulinemia, and spent most of his younger years as a very sick boy.  We spent many long hours at the hospital throughout his youth, and many more with him sick at home. God was good to us all, and he outgrew the condition, as some afflicted with this do, and he has blossomed into a handsome, caring,  funny, sensitive teen.

We traveled out to New Jersey for his graduation (I wasn't going to miss out on THAT!) and despite the 100+ degree temps there, really enjoyed seeing his class of 162 graduate.  They even had the school band playing "Pomp and Circumstance" as the young grads marched down the aisles in their caps and gowns..what a sight!

We then brought the new graduate back to Ohio for most of the Summer...until it's time to begin soccer practice in August . He adores soccer..but not nearly  as much as Mom-Mom adores him ;)

Here he is getting "Bee-you-tee-ful before his graduation....
Post-graduations pic with his Mom, Jenny...
And lastly, Brendan and me, "Mom-Mom" celebrating on the way home from New Jersey with a stop at "Melt Restaurant and Grill" in Cleveland (featured on the Food Network!)
That's my Sweetie-pie :)
