Tuesday's "Three"

October 22, 2013


This week is a wandering the web edition of 3.

3 Pumpkin Recipes That Sound Intriguing:
  1. Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats
  2. Honey Roasted Pumpkin Seeds sound like the perfect way to use up pumpkin seeds.
  3. I love biscotti with my coffee, so Pumpkin Pie Biscotti sounds amazing!

3 Things {crafty} I Want To Make:
  1. Love this tea towel - perfect for inspiration!
  2. Pajama pants - love them!
  3. I love making Shutterfly books and have opened a Blurb account specifically because I wanted to make a cookbook of our favorites but still haven't done that.  This adorable family cookbook makes me want to take the time to do it.

3 Good Things To Read:
  1. Money Memoirs is 33 people discussing their truth about money.  This is a build-up to Bari Tessler's money class, but I think the memoirs alone are a great read!
  2. 100 Ways For Your Family To Make A Difference is a great reminder at this time of the year to focus on giving to others.  Great ideas for Random Acts of Kindness too!
  3. What People Really Look Like
Happy Tuesday!!

October 10, 2017

With all of the other soap & skincare companies out there, we honestly had no idea that it would even be a possibility of doing as well as it did so soon. But it has, and for that we are incredibly grateful. (I...

How To Fail At Homesteading.....

October 06, 2017


Ok, so the title is a tad bit dramatic.  But friends, it's simply reality.  I could teach a course on how-to fail at homesteading, particularly this year.

sigh......

Probably not a good thing since this is a homesteading blog. It seems that the attempt to keep all balls in the air whilst one also tries to also craft a homemade life is, um, not possible. At least not on this small homestead. And at...
