Friday family fun day paper craft project- TP crafts

Whoops, forgot to post this Friday for you all. It is my husband’s birthday this weekend and we were out having our own fun. Guess life just got too busy for a post. Anyway, better late then never like they say. So lets rename this post Sunday Fun day. Hope you all are have a…

Hunting for vintage books

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get the people to stop reading them.” Ray Bradbury in Fahrenheit 451 This months shopping trip involves books. Old ones at that. I just love old books, even the smell of them. Like a fragrance from back in time. Shopping for actual books seems…

 DIY- Mini cacti pots

There are babies everywhere in my garden right now, cacti that is. One early morning while I was out watering my garden and making sure the wild birds and bees had food and water I noticed there were all kinds of baby cacti everywhere. I thought how cute it would be to decorate some tiny…

Banana Bread

Orange marmalade

There is nothing like picking fresh fruit from a tree. I wish everyone could experience this at least once in his or her life. My family is very fortunate to have been able to pick many things from the plants themselves. We have picked wildberries up north at the little red house, which makes for…

A trip back to the little red house.

We had a holiday weekend and decided to head up north. We are redoing my husband’s office and turning it into a little bedroom, and we needed an extra bed we had up at the little red house. Our trip up north this time was not an easy one. Our neighbors here in the city…
