About Me


Hey, y'all! I'm Cindy!
I live in the rolling hills of Kentucky, the beautiful bluegrass state.


I have a country side to me and I'm driven by memories of simpler times.
I avoid the hustle and bustle of trying to keep up in today's society.
I just prefer to embrace a calm and peaceful rhythm to my day.

While here, I hope you feel inspired...
somewhere, somewhat, somehow...just like connecting with an old friend over a cup of tea.


I can be a homebody sometimes, because my favorite place to be is in my backyard.
While there, I enjoy...

my garden and the lake.


I enjoy a 'farmhouse' look and style in my home. With a vintage flair, of course.



I currently run an online Etsy shop, Old Time Pickers, that carries items that are rust & crust and weathered & worn. 


My great-grandparents, Frank and Ina Mae, are my inspiration. I really come from a long line of pickers. LOL! And once you start, you just can't stop!


My latest adventure is opening a new online business called Old Time Farmhouse. I'm so excited about this. The focus will be on my rustic, handcrafted soaps along with farmhouse style items for the home. 


And just for fun...here are some more tidbits about me...
~I'm a proud grandmother of an adorable little girl who has a down on the farm lifestyle.


~I enjoy reading when I find any spare time.
~I adopt every stray critter that happens to wander into my yard including a rooster I named Roo.


~Besides being an entrepreneur, I've had a variety of careers including being a kindergarten teacher and a director for a college.
~I'm a nature lover and a tree hugger.

Plans for my future...
~I'm wanting to expand my herbal garden and my knowledge of how to use herbs. Lavender and mint are my favorites.


~I'm looking into becoming a beekeeper as I've always been fascinated with bees.
~And, of course, I hope to be healthy, happy, and remain blessed in whatever I do. Life is good when it's based on faith, family, and friends.
So there you have it. My life is pretty sweet and simple.

I'm pleased that you took the time to neighbor with me.
Feel free to visit anytime. The screen door always swings open for Old Time Friends.
Farmhouse hugs to all!
