Dumpster Dive

My son Jason dug this out of the dumpster where he works and brought it home for me.  I was so excited, not just for the chair but that my son knows me so well and he’d knew I’d love this! It’s a vintage wood office chair, the tag underneath says from Pittsburgh! After using my…

Christmas Blessings Star Primitive Tree Topper

My Christmas tree needed a new topper and I found one the other day at Goodwill for $1.99. It had a spring bottom that I really liked and thought it would look good on my  top of my tree.  My only problem was it wouldn’t stay on the tree.  The spring bottom was kind of…

It’s the Saturday before Christmas and I’m just now doing some of my cookie baking!  I almost didn’t bake any cookies, just because I know I’ll eat them if they are in the house and I don’t want to put on any more weight!! Can anyone relate with me?  However, Christmas only comes once a…

In our community, the first Saturday in November, is the annual Farkleberry Craft Show!  I enjoy going to it, so many creative people out there.  A lot of jewelry vendors, I’m not really into it, but a lot of people seem to be.  One particular vendor really inspired me though and it was being run…

Apple Pie

I’m sharing this basic apple pie recipe with you today.  I have been making apple pies for over 40 years (yes, I am that old) and I never was taught to cook the apples first.  Often, my pies would have hard apples inside or it would get too brown from over baking. This recipe will…

Vintage-Look Vanilla Bottle

I love glass bottles! I don’t know where the obsession came from, but anytime I empty a glass bottle or jar, I just can’t throw it away!  I re-use them to store pantry items or I will put some vintage looking labels on them just for decorating in my home. When I finished this bottle…
