Crafting A Wax Pantry Cake

I know many of you see these wax pantry cakes and they can be pricey if you are buying them from someone. So I decided to try my hand at it.  I didn’t want to try anything bundt size, so I kept my eye out for a small mold at Goodwill and yesterday I found…

Prim Candle Holder

The other day, I was at Home Depot to pick up my 5 gallon jug of water and of course I had to take a browse around the store.  I’m sure I am not the only woman who likes Home Depot!  I was looking for some lathe wood and that’s when I saw the garbage…

Primitive Soap Dish

I am so glad the weather is getting warmer, it gave me an opportunity to go outside and cut out this project. I bought this at Goodwill for 99 cents, whoever made it didn’t do a very good job of cutting it out, but I liked the rough texture of the wood and had the…

Coconut Cream Pie and Easter Tradition

Easter is tomorrow and traditional in my home I make Easter bread.  It takes a lot of time because it makes 5 loaves and quite frankly,  I just didn’t have the time or maybe the energy to make it this year.  I did, however, decide to make a lemon meringue pie for my youngest son…

Today is March, 10 so that means Spring is only 10 days away! It also is my only grand-daughter’s 8th birthday!  Did you know on the first day of Spring you can stand eggs up on their end?  Every year my son does this for her, hoping he can do all 8 this year! Baleigh’s…
