Hi, I'm hoping that my blog and my experiences will help to encourage you. Our journey through life can be unpredictable at times but KNOW that if you are a believer in Christ, HE will always have your best interest at heart! (Even when things don't make sense!) Toodles

It’s a Sign! LOL

Standard

I am in love with my new metal sign!  https://realsteelcenter.com/   It is absolutely perfect!  This pattern was already a stock pattern and the barn is exactly the shape of mine!  They have a ton of great options, even holiday options.  The metal is a great weight, no sharp edges and didn’t take long to receive it.  Now I just need to figure out where I’m going to hang it – there are a couple options, lol.

Love Mason Jars

Standard

I’d say I have a slight addiction to Mason Jars and when there is a new shape or new color or new size – I kinda need them! LOL

How stinkin’ cute are these “fluted” mason jars! I found them at my grocery store, King Soopers. Perfect for flowers or cute drinks! Ahhhh they make me happy, lol.

Pantry DONE!

Standard

I found some old pictures of the “now” pantry when it was the original mudroom.  They’re a little blurry/grainy but you can get the idea.

You can see the linoleum flooring and under the shelf is where the washer and dryer were.

The room is about 8’x8′.  That door was the original back door before I did the addition.  That’s the same door that I used for “new” red pantry door.

Here is the “after”.  Finally got all the beadboard up and trimmed out.

Yep – that was the back door!

 

Palisade Peach Jam

Standard

I haven’t had the opportunity to make Palisade Peach Jam in a couple of years – but this is one of my favorite things to do, make jam!  The peaches are big and sweet!

I just use the Certo Liquid Pectin recipe that comes in the box.  It actually took 6 large peaches to yield the 4 cups of fruit I needed. Recipe says it’ll make 8 cups but I always get more?  This batch made 10 cups.  There is nothing like homemade peach jam on pancakes or waffles! Yum
