Fixing up an old country desk.

Slowly, slowly things are getting done. I had a list of items I needed for the small room up north at Our Little Red House and I was on the hunt for these items from second hand shops. We have been escaping the city as much as possible and we needed a desk in the…

DIY- Frugal fall centerpiece for under $5

It’s TP craft time…DIY paper mushrooms.

This was one of those crafts where it looked better in my head when I decided to give it a go then it turned out. I am having fun with figuring out cool little TP projects for the kids out there but some of these don’t come out exactly the way I imagined they would….
