My name is Vickie and I reside in St. Amant, La. My husband and I live on 3 acres with 2 dogs. My husband is retired and I teach high school chemistry. We raise bees and love to hunt, fish and go to our youngest grandson's baseball games. We have 2 other grandsons one in college and one who just graduated high school. Our life revolves around our family. I love to make soap, cleaning supples, and use essential oils for making home scents. I recently taught my self how to needle tat and I belong to a lady's crafting group that meets quarterly. My next project is to plant medicinal herbs for making home remedies. I am also very interested in Traditional Chinese medicine of which I have learned much from my accupuncturist. I am excited to be a part of the Farmgirl connection

Welcome, Vickie. I have chickens and cats. I have a grandson who is playing JV baseball this year. He is very good and has played travel ball for several years. I also have a granddaughter. You will love all the topics covered and I am sure you will have so much to contribute. Look around, have fun. I love it.

Welcome Vicky, from Missouri. I also teach school but I am a second grade teacher. I have 7 children (5 birth, 2 step) and 12 grandkids with 2 more to be born in 2017. I have been to Louisiana once. My family and I went to New Orleans and then found a swamp tour to go on when we headed back home. We just happened to leave New Orleans 5 days before the hurricane hit and devastated the town. The people we met in Louisiana were so friendly. We were talking just a couple of weeks again that we would like to go back to Louisiana but somewhere besides New Orleans. Any ideas you could give would be great.

Welcome Vickie! So glad you have joined us! I'm excited to hear of your interest in traditional Chinese medicine. My husband has recently begun acupuncture due to a neck injury. We decided to give this a shot in attempt to avoid surgery. I will have to chat with you sometime so I can learn more! Can't wait to see you around and learn more about you!

Welcome, Vickie! I just saw your tatting on another post! Beautiful! Now I see you do needle tatting. I have all the supplies to try it just haven't gotten there yet!

Welcome to the Connection. I know you will love it!

Welcome Vickie. It sounds like you have a loving family. Cherish them and nurture that relationship. I used to go to my brother's baseball games growing up and they are fun memories. I use natural and holistic treatments and only eat organic foods. My next goal is to switch to all organic clothing and natural products I use. A friend recently pointed out to me the chemicals in our toothbrushes. lol I thanked her for giving me one more thing to be concerned with until I get my natural bristle brushes. Giggle!

Have fun and get to know the member's. Everyone is so nice and kind.

Welcome, Vicki. My hubby and I moved to Texas four years ago. We lived in SW Louisiana, south of Lafayette.
Hope you are enjoying the chatting with the Farmgirls.

Hi Vicki,

What interesting hobby you are doing. I love sewing, make jam, I make some white grape a few weeks ago. My favorite thing to do is decoupage. First I go to lots and lots of estate sale, where I find old magazines and other stuff like vintage toaster, oil can, gas can, cookie sheet, magazine holder, bug sprayer, wash boards, etc. etc. I decoupage the old ads. on the objects and I sell them on etsy vintageartist61 and at the local wineries and high school holiday bazaar. I even sold one item on my facebook page to a high school friend.
