Homemade Body Butter

 

I don’t have hands that are soft as a baby’s bottom. My hands are continually used and I am rough on them. I get them dirty in the garden, in the chicken coop, at work and with the kids. I wash my hands a lot. There are are times that I treat myself to a manicure, but my manicures are short lived. Inevitably, the polish begins to chip away the next day.

Bee Mine: Make Your Own Honey Sugar Scrub

Happy Valentine’s Day

A great Valentine’s Day gift to share with those you love is a lovely sugar scrub inspired from my new loves-the honeybees.  It is wonderful for those whose skin could use a little TLC during these cold weathered months.  I happen to make and use this one year round.  For the simple instructions on how to make and share your own, head on over to this post I wrote for on HGTV Garden.

Suet Wreath

Well this week is about the birds again. I hope you don’t mind!  We really have taken up backyard birding at the feeder.  We love feeding the birds a variety of things including sunflower seeds, thistle, suet and even oranges for the Orioles come springtime.  This week I shared over on HGTV Garden how to make a delicious suet wreath feeder for the wild birds in your very own kitchen.  It is easy and the birds just love it especially woodpeckers!  Click here to make your very own.

Woodland Snowglobes

Good Morning friends! Happy New Year and Happy 2013 to all of you.  Today, I am sharing with you the woodland snowglobes that I made for HGTV Garden.  They are super easy to make, fun with the kids, and a great way to recycle those Mason Jars that you decorated your home with for the holidays.  Take a walk outside for some inspiration.  You can find the directions here.
