Review: Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda. Great for Cloth Diapers!

This post may contain affiliate links.

Since switching to detergents that are specifically formulated for cloth diapers, I’ve become a bit of a laundry snob. I can find a few brands at my local grocer that will get the job done in a pinch without causing immediate absorbancy issues with my cloth diapers, but for long-term use I’ve found it’s so […]

Crochet Gift Card Holder

Who doesn’t love to receive gift cards? I don’t know of anyone, but I know lots of people who don’t like to give them as gifts because they are too impersonal. Why not make your own holder to give it a heartfelt touch? I found this Crochet Gift Card Holder pattern through Ravelry and followed […]

Do You Fondue?

Lat Sunday for my birthday (#29!), Hubs took me to The Melting Pot for dinner. While the food and atmosphere were amazing, the best gift of all was a few hours of freedom from a clingy baby! Sorry, Sweet T but it’s the truth. The booths are set up to make patrons feel like they […]

When we first moved into our house over a year ago I found this old wheelbarrow in the “back 40” and knew immediately that I wanted to turn it into a flower planter. This is kind of the look I’m going for. Something simple and old fashioned to match the theme of our home design. […]

My aunt put a couple of mesh infant feeders in Sweet T’s stocking this past Christmas and this week I decided to see if she was ready for them. She was! I put some plum pieces in there and you’d think she’d died and gone to heaven. There’s video at the end of the post.

Crochet Easter Bunny Basket

What do you think of Sweet T’s crochet Easter bunny basket? My dad says it will make a nice “hareloom” to pass down. Nyuck, nyuck, nuck. The best thing about it is its small size. I’ve got to get away with tiny Easter baskets before she wises up to the fact that bigger is better […]

Repurposed Storm Windows

Hubs built a mini-greenhouse/cold frame with our old storm windows. I love repurposing! Our first planting of sugar snaps peas are coming up, but the second batch that I planted two weeks later got washed out. Here in the South we have a long growing season, but February and March are generally so wet that […]

Window Project

It’s way too nice of a day outside to be blogging and my poor washed out garden beckons so this will be a short post. Just wanted to show off my new windows! This is the first time since we’ve been married that I’ve had windows that actually open and that I will bother cleaning. […]
