Repurposed Storm Windows

This post may contain affiliate links.

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. […]

The winner is… Congrats, Chany! Please respond to your winning notification within 48 hours or another winner will be selected. Over the course of our marriage we’ve been using a warm mist/steam humidifier in our bedroom at night. Gas or woodburning heat zaps the moisture in the air and I can’t stand to wake up […]

P90X

I hesitate to even post this considering the best way for me to jinx an exercise regimen is to blog about it.  That’s what happened with my latest Couch to 5K attempt anyway and I’m sure has everything to do with blogging about it and nothing to do with lack of character and discipline on […]

Kitchen Project

The previous owner of our home almost completely gutted our 1960’s rancher and turned it into a rustic farmhouse. This really isn’t my style. Our previous home I had decorated in a Tuscan style and if money were no object my house would look like a Pottery Barn or Anthropologie catalog. I’ve learned to embrace […]

Crochet Hat for Spring

Look! I crocheted something that isn’t play food! Sweet T now has a pretty little hat with interchangeable flowers. It was really easy to make, especially the hat. It’s just double crochet with a little scallop (ch 3, skip, sc) on the edge. I still haven’t decided how to make the flowers interchangeable. Alligator clips […]

What does simplicity mean to you?

This post may contain affiliate links.

It’s interesting how the concept for simplicity can mean completely different things to different people. My mom and I were discussing this and for her, simplicity usually equals ease. She’d rather buy it than make it, pay full price rather than clip a coupon, and she places a premium on convenience. For her, that’s simple […]

What To Get Him for Valentine’s Day?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Wondering what to get him for Valentine’s Day? OK, so a true Valentines idea for him would be skipping the holiday altogether (or participating in an activity that isn’t suitable to mention on a family-friendly blog *snark snark*), but since us girls aren’t going to let them get away with that, we can at least give our […]

Easy Hot Spinach Dip (Death By Spinach Dip)

This easy hot spinach dip has taken our family and church by storm. My aunt discovered it on the back of a Duke’s mayonnaise jar and has made it for us three times in the last month for potlucks, birthdays, etc. We can’t get enough of it and it’s too good not to share. You may […]

“I just don’t have time”

This post may contain affiliate links.

This phrase has crept its way into my speech and thoughts more and more over the last five months. My favorite variant is the sarcastic “Oh I should do that in my spare time.” I’m trying to eradicate this attitude. It reeks of martyrdom and the truth is we all pretty much have the time […]
