To celebrate Throwback Thursday, I’m sharing a post that’s been very popular in the past. And this post is near & dear to my heart. I’ve spent decades reducing the amount of trash produced in and for our home. Are you interested in doing the same? Come see some easy tips.
I love all things denim. So it’s lucky for me that I get plenty of denim material to craft with. RancherMan’s hard on his jeans – working cattle, or fencing, or in the shop building or repairing things. I have lots of fun Projects Using Denim from his worn jeans.
But my absolute favorite is my dish carrier. When we go out to eat I carry it into the restaurant with me. With its denim cover & bamboo handles it looks purse-like enough that it doesn’t feel odd carrying it in. I get so many compliments on it! Then after our meal I can place our leftovers into the enclosed dish & bring them home. No wasted food and no crappy flimsy styrofoam container. And to celebrate Throwback Thursday, I’m sharing again how easily I made it.
When it’s blustery outside, a cup of hot Chai tea really hits the spot. Silky smooth, sweet and wonderful. Aaaaahhhhh….
My wonderful SIL makes the best Chai tea mix, and I’ve been the lucky recipient of her gift. She was sweet enough to share her recipe. And today I’m going back into the blog archives and bringing that recipe back so you can enjoy it too!
So you say you’ve had lots of company over the past few weeks? Like most of us I’m guessing between Christmas, New Year’s and other gatherings you’ve really had some foot traffic on your carpets, huh? I hear ya. So what now, do you need to call a carpet cleaning company?
Well, maybe. But RancherMan & I have a small carpet machine that we use to spot clean our carpets. In our case it’s typically cleaning pet stains but I hated to buy an expensive and chemical-laden commercial cleaning solution. I wanted something less toxic. So I researched & found an easy yet effective homemade version.
To celebrate Throwback Thursday (and to help you along your ‘saving money‘ New Year’s resolution), today I’m sharing the oh-so-simple homemade carpet cleaning solution we use here on the Homestead.
Whelp, the holidays are in full swing y’all. In no time it’ll be Christmas! On this Throwback Thursday I’m sharing with you how to make a candy Santa sleigh like the ones we made last year for our grandbabies. The kids loved them!
This Santa sleigh is made with miniature candy bars & candy canes. It’s one of the easiest & cutest gifts evah. And you can make it in a flash. Cute, no?
If you are a stay-at-home parent, a homeschooler, are self employed or otherwise work from home, you know what I mean. The outside world sometimes has a very wrong idea of how you spend your time. RancherMan & I are self employed so our work is all done from our Homestead. But oftentimes to those around us the perception is that we’ve got all the free time in the world!
Have you experienced the same thing? Yeah, I know…
You know those dates stamped on packages of food? What do they mean? It’s confusing alright. Is the food ‘expired’? Is it safe to eat? Will it make you sick if you eat it anyway? I always wondered that too.
Then I did some research and was very surprised at what I found. To celebrate Throwback Thursday I’m sharing these tips today. Come see!
