John and I live in the little country town of Springville located in the Endless Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. We thank God for bringing us to this beautiful area where we raised our 2 daughters and are now enjoying watching our grandchildren grow here as well.
Thank you for taking the time to stop in and visit with us.
It is our prayer that as you spend time with us you may begin to reflect over memories that you thought were long forgotten. Or maybe, you will begin to build new ones! No matter what, we pray that you will leave here with a smile on your face and the desire to share your joy with others.
May we leave you with this: "For God so loved the world (that means you) that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth (placed your faith and trust) in Him (Jesus) should not perish but have everlasting life (with Him in heaven). ~ John 3:16
You are loved!!! ~ John & Lucy Galgano
There's a brand new blog called "By Your Hands" that will be dedicated to everything handmade. Stop by for a visit and make sure you follow. You won't want to miss out on any of the great tutorials, trash to treasure, spotlights, featured artists, giveaways, etc. Just click on the button below and check it out!
Heading to Lancaster tomorrow for the day!!! Since my husband has some people coming over tomorrow, I figured I'd disappear for a little while! Hoping to bring back lots of goodies for my shop, for my garden, for my fridge and for my husband :)
On a sad note ~ we had yet another massacre here today. Why do people allow their dogs to just run loose? Three more of our chickens were torn to shreds! My dog doesn't run all over other's property and destroy their pets. The dog warden supposedly can't do anything until I get a picture of the dog in the act. Does that even make sense? We even have neighbors who are witnesses and that doesn't matter apparently. Can someone tell me how to get the dog to pose for a picture when it's in the middle of chasing and killing my chickens? I haven't figured that one out yet.
