Lady Katherine, who is she? Today on my 100Th post of articles, I  am going  to tell you about my life.
First, why did I decide to name my website, After taking a leave  absence from work, for my illness. I started to ordering Tea Time Magazine, looking on Internet at tea information. I found a few sites I loved to visit and studied tea, and tea parties. After, a few years, I decided to start a website, at first I thought, it was going to be just about afternoon tea. For one day, I would like to have a tea shop are just give afternoon teas. As I studied about blogging. My first post was on my painted kitchen floor. I decided to share things I love to do. In my parlor I do have afternoon teas.
 God has blessed me to learn to do many things in life. Too many to name,  We did have every  farm animal you could name, from ducks,40 chickens, 40 angora rabbits and New Zealand rabbits, 100 or so sheep and goats. I love to spin on a spinning wheel, weave on a loom, knit, crochet, build things, herbs and roses and grapes, and Lilly are some of my favorites to grow.
I worked in a florist as a young girl, while working there, I also learned to run a cash register, pump gas, how to help find the right fertilizer or plants, I also learned to do the accounting for the whole garden center.  As my children were born and I stayed at home, I sold Home Interior, made floral arrangements for other florist and gift shops. I did the accounting for my husband business, and mine.
 I opened a gift shop, but my customers turned it into a florist, for they liked my floral arrangements. After having a hystermony, we closed the florist and moved to the country. As our farm grew,
 I was became very happy. This city girl,  had missed her life and friends. My husband and I were 4H leaders for one of the biggest clubs in Mississippi, where we taught the children much of the gifts God has given to me, and my husband for he can do most
 anything, he is very talented. 
 I worked five years in a Corporate office, in the accounting department.I took an interior decorating course, I took an esthetician course. I have sold Mary Kay make up. I had a nail salon prior to going to work with an Aviation Company.
  I have been members of Chambers of Commerce, Mississippi Goat Association, Fire Dept. board of directors.  Member of Weaving and Spinning Guild. I done many demonstrations of spinning and weaving.  I have taught spinning and weaving at the local college. I am writing a book on spinning and weaving. I also home school my girls from the seventh grade on. After our girls were grow, for about five years My husband and I traveled working, to  all the airports in the south eastern states, from town to town. Staying in a motor home, from 10 months out of a year. During this time we had two daughters, married, and three grandchildren born. We now have four grandchildren. The big C word came into my life in January 2003, I had chemo twice that year. We went to surgery in 2004, two surgeries turn into thirty-nine. I continued to work and have surgeries. Until my husband and I took a leave of absence from work in 2006, thinking we would be gone two or three months. 
We now have been home three years. We have added to our farm  more chickens, and a few goats, and a guard dog.  My husband is also is experimenting with Mississippi State University, growing craw fish in ponds The farm life is a life that I have enjoyed so much. I miss traveling for I got to go to a lot of cities and towns out of state, and shop at antique shops and gift stores.
