One of my great memories of growing up on the farm was all our kittens. Every year we would have a new batch. My sister and I would name everyone and then play with them as if they were are babies. Who needed dolls. We even tried dressing them up in doll clothes.
I'm a Christian mother of 4 who married my best friend 25 years ago. We live in rural Iowa near Iowa City in a turn of the century Victorian home with a beautiful wrap around porch and a high point view of Johnson county. In 1993 we turned a grain shed into our first little "Rug Cottage" where I sold area rugs and gifts. Since then the little cottage has grown as well as our family. We now have Barntiques Antique Mall in our historic barn.
