Repost-Road trip time

Had to check up on the little red house for the day and as always it was a beautiful drive. How blessed the people are that get to live here. It is what I imagine living in a postcard would feel like. Went to visit the town pond, at least that is what I call…

A baby pony at our little red house.

Early one morning while we were all sleeping in from a hard day of working like crazy remolding our little red house up north there was a knock on our back door. I am sure there were several knocks before I woke up to check and see who was there. I remember stumbling out of…

Craft closet part 3

  My closet was just about done; we were waiting for the drawers to dry and the top of the desk as well. There was a lot of sanding and sealing involved with that desk. Until that was ready, I decided to work on my inspiration board and some art to display in my office/guest…

Out of my closet…I’m a craft hoarder part 1

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe how many craft supplies I actually have. My husband and kids are always telling me I have a Michaels store in the back guest room but I always laugh it off and tell myself, “no I don’t”. Then this expert organizer showed up one morning on our morning news…

A trip back to the little red house.

We had a holiday weekend and decided to head up north. We are redoing my husband’s office and turning it into a little bedroom, and we needed an extra bed we had up at the little red house. Our trip up north this time was not an easy one. Our neighbors here in the city…

We are crawling with chicks

  The other day our local feed store was having their annual sale of buy one get one free. We decided to pick up some baby chicks for our daughter who wants to try her hand at raising laying hens. Years ago we had chickens but we ended up giving them away, along with all…

DIY_Up-cycle grandma’s old sewing table

I love these little tables, although recently I have noticed, it has been getting harder and harder to find them. If you happen to come across one, don’t get rid of it…they make the perfect little table for lamps, plants or just a place to put your drinks, plus they don’t take up a lot…

Aloe Vera- Heaven’s wand

Summer is almost over and as always our garden always takes a hit during the hot months here in Phoenix. No matter what my husband and I do, we always loose something over the summers in our garden. With record heats it is bound to happen. Even with covered areas with shade the temps are…

Arizona supermarkets

It has been awhile since my husband and I have traveled anywhere far away and we do miss it, especially checking out different shops and foods while traveling. When ever we were visiting family in Italy we would shop at the Co-op, with their grocery store carts that add up your items as you put…
