To be a father.

DIY- Paper and Plaster Garden Picks

Hope you all enjoy this re-post of mine. I remember doing this craft for a trip up north to Our Little Red House. It was wildflower season up there and I wanted to display these picks surrounded by natural flowers. Got up there, did a bunch of home repairs and painting, was exhausted and on…

DIY Easter terrariums

Terrariums are ever so trendy right now, so I thought I try my hand at some inexpensive versions for our Easter table. Our neighbors dropped off some empty glass jars the other day (we make a lot of homemade pasta sauce) and I decided to turn them into something pretty for my Easter table instead…

Repost-Road trip time

DIY old drawers/new shelves

  Mini zucchini pizza

One of my favorite little Italian snacks to make are little mini zucchini pizzas. We usually get a ton of squash and zucchini up north at the little red house from neighbors around this time of year and this is one of our favorite things to make with all those veggies. It is pretty easy…
