Hey everyone! A while back Stella from Purfylle shared her adorable Crochet Cat Coasters (HERE) as part of our Handmade Christmas Blog Hop. We joined a bunch of other bloggers to share 12 crafty Christmas gifts you could make for those on your “Good” list. One a month so you can craft along!
Back to Stella’s cat coasters – I loved the different ways she changed up these simple coasters to give each cat it’s own personality plus the pattern is so easy, anyone could make them! I decided to make some too!
Hey all! Just sharing some exciting small batch canning I did recently. After a weekend of cookouts, I had some veggies left over (we did k-bobs!). I didn’t want them to go to waste and yet had no plans really to cook them during the week. So I grabbed some jars and looked for recipes!
I had two summer squash, 2 zucchini, 2 peppers, some baby carrots and a small head of cabbage (I never did make the coleslaw!). hmmm what can we do? I ended up picking two pickle recipes.
I don’t know if I mentioned that I work from home (which is AWESOME). Normally the neighborhood is pretty quiet but we are right next to a busy interstate, with a brick wall to block noise (ha right), so you can hear traffic noise if something happens out there (wrecks, etc. ). One time the wreck was so bad we had tv helicopters flying around!
Hello everyone! Ready for a bit of color today? A few years back Kristina found this Etsy store where a lady upcycled sweaters into these totally awesome and beautiful coats – Katwise! See her store HERE. We both fell in love but oh my are they so expensive and even with ‘layaway’ there was no way we could afford one. So we bought the instruction booklet, a serger and some sweaters from goodwill. We chopped the sweaters but for the life of me I could not get that stupid serger to sew the pieces together!! Fast forward two years and I decided to try again – by crocheting a Katwise style sweater coat!!
So much excitement in the garden lately I had to do an update! The weather is getting pretty hot so hopefully my little straw bales and containers will stay hydrated and keep growing and producing!
I was in the kitchen and saw something out the window, ran to look at it was a deer! There’s a mulberry tree way to the right at the edge of our yard and I think she came down for some of those. The birds LOVE that tree, continually squawking and eating the mulberries before they can even get ripe. Sadly this is the third year in a row we were not able to get any for ourselves.
