Welcome to our 1864 farmhouse…life is good!

Monday, September 28

enjoy the season you are in...

This is the season we are in...


and although we're setting out plump pumpkins and cheery mums, the season we find ourselves in, is Nutcracker season.

Sweet Girl finds her weekends filled with seemingly endless hours of rehearsals, aching feet and toes, along with pure exhaustion...but also, a smile so bright.
Yes...life ought to be enjoyed at every stage.

Thank you Sweet Girl for sharing this stage with us.

gussied-up clothespins!

It seems I use clothespins for more than keeping sheets on the clothesline!  They come in handy for chip-clips, bookmarks, keeping recipes together, and generally corralling any paperwork I have. Somehow all that paperwork seems a little less messy and looks just a bit better with a cute clothespin clip on it!

These are oh-so easy to make...just gather your favorite scrapbook paper, scissors, and a little decoupage glue (Mod Podge) and you're ready to begin. Simply cut paper to fit the tops of clothespins, then secure in place with a bit of Mod Podge.  Once the paper is secure, brush a thin coat of Mod Podge over the paper to give it a protective coating...just let dry.

It couldn't be easier!

So tell me; what will you use your gussied-up clothespins for?

Happy Friday...enjoy the long weekend!
