Apple Bundt cake

You all know what time of year it is…Fall. Which means there are apples everywhere right now. The other day when I was going through our food supply trying to figure out what we needed for a shopping trip, I realized I had bought way too many apples the last time. My family had not…

Monthly updates from Our Little Red house.

“ When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice-once for herself and once for her child.” Sophia Loren I think I finally figured it all out. Why these months seem to be flying by so much. It’s because it feels like we are…

An Arizona Centennial tree

one of my favorite places to visit here in Arizona is Prescott. I especially love the old court house. Sometimes they have festivals, farmer’s markets, art shows and holiday events. It’s just a really peaceful place to stop by for a picnic or to hang out under one of the many trees around the Court…

In the Garden…DIY a little $1 store birdhouse kit.

September is my least favorite month to be out in the garden. Our temps are usually very hot during August and September, all through the day and all through the night. This summer and the beginning of Fall haven’t been so bad which surprises me. It is actually really nice right now out there, we…

A collection of vintage rag dolls.

Do any of you remember Little House on the Prairie? I loved that show way back when. I remember Laura’s baby sister always carried around a little rag doll her mother made for her. Whenever I am out shopping at the antique shops I always come across hand made rag dolls. I have always loved…

A summer time rummage sale.

Stopped off at a favorite rummage sale we have here in our city every summer. It’s at a huge Catholic church. The sale helps raise money for children’s programs within the church. There are several rooms filled with all kinds of items. The main room, which is the room where I believe the Catholic school’s…

Shopping adventures to an old cowboy store.

This store I am sharing with you all today was on the way to Our Little Red House. In the small towns up in the mountain areas around Arizona you will come across Arizona stores like this one that sell mostly to tourists visiting our state. They are always fun to visit even for us…

A visit to an Arizona art museum.

Thought I share some art from one of our art museums here in our state. When it gets hot here in Arizona everyone visits the museums and indoor activity areas. The photos I am sharing today will be on Arizona inspired art. After each photo there will be a photo of the artist of each…

Christmas in July.

Here in America we do something called Christmas in July. Mostly it’s just another reason to shop indoors when everything is hot outside and there’s not a whole lot to do. It’s not like the real Christmas. Just a summer time event to get early Christmas décor made, shop for Winter décor and maybe even…

Rock art for the kids.

Summer is here and you all know what that means. We need to find fun ways to entertain the kids. When my kids were little and we were fixing up Our Little Red House up north we would take the kids down to the creek to explore and splash around in the swimming holes. Before…
