Costello Hinchey CHStudios.net Southwest, Virginia, U.S. "In the mountains, we forget to count the days..." happily, coexisting on a 40 acre homestead in the middle Appalachian mountains of Virginia. I spend most of my time with my precious family, of course. They are my biggest fans. Together we share a simple life of mountain living, art, singing and music and loving the outdoors. One can sit from our front porch and see the most wonderful view of Poor Valley. It’s not at all uncommon to see almost all forms of wildlife found in these mountains. Including black bear, bob cats, bald eagles, wild turkey, great blue herons, ground hogs, hawks, etc.I love gray & "soft" rainy days… And the mountains to me are like a big hug all wrapped up in my favorite quilt by the fire on a snowy winter day. Follow our musical group Poor Valley- The Band on Facebook. Our music is Nouveau Mountain style. It's a mix of traditional Appalachian music with a contemporary flair.Poor Valley - The Band

5 Virginia Treasures!

Posted by Linda Costello Hinchey on 3 January, 2013 at 15:35 Comments comments (90)

5 Inspirations for the creation of this Deacon's Bench! Hand-painted on this deacon's bench is five of my favorite wildflowers from the Appalachian mountains of Virginia. The pattern, framing each of these hand painted flowers, is a tedious country paisley pattern done in a pretty shade of blue periwinkle. Soft white and yellow stripes are the background for each flower.

I'm always intrigued at how alike and different they can be. I know that many of you have very special religious traditions associated with your holidays. Many go to church or Mass for the holiday. For many its a very personal day shared with their friends and family. In addition to the "reason for the season", here are a few of our si...
