To be a father.

“ A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.” Billy Graham Just wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to all those men out there who father and mentor children of all ages. And an especially big THANK YOU to my…

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

Had to check up on the little red house for the day and as always it was a beautiful drive. How blessed the people are that get to live here. It is what I imagine living in a postcard would feel like. Went to visit the town pond, at least that is what I call…

We are crawling with chicks

  The other day our local feed store was having their annual sale of buy one get one free. We decided to pick up some baby chicks for our daughter who wants to try her hand at raising laying hens. Years ago we had chickens but we ended up giving them away, along with all…

Best homemade Banana cranberry muffins

There is nothing that beats homemade anything, at least in my book that is. It just taste better when it comes from your own hands and oven…just wish there was more time to make everything by scratch. These banana muffins have always been a hit in our home, a favorite of my sons growing up,…
