Urban Chickens Inspire Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion Quiche

My friend gave me a carton full of glorious multi-colored fresh chicken eggs from her very own little chicken babies. Here is one of her feathered kids cruising around the living room. Isn't she cute?

I’m sure the hens worked hard on these masterpieces and I didn't want to waste another minute NOT eating these! Read more about Urban Chickens Inspire Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion Quiche

The Makeup Eraser Meets Handee

Makeup Eraser Review

I love make-up and must have at least a little mascara on when I leave the house! I have a huge assortment of facial cleansers, toners and scrubs, but they are intended for adding balance to my skin type - not necessarily removing make-up. In fact, I can use one of my hoity toity skin cleansers and still be left with streaks of eye makeup running down my face. I have used standard make-up remover creams, liquids and wipes. They often make my face and eye area feel either dried out, or worse - greasy. Read more about The Makeup Eraser Meets Handee

My daughter slung her 100 pound backpack over her shoulder and announced that she would not be needing a lunch today because it simply would not fit in her bag. Whoa, whoa, whoa, young lady! We are not going to forgo sustenance because of book storage! Geez, who is this little nerd? Lunch is the best time of the day! What's wrong with these kids? Read more about Vintage Tin Lunch Pail

Purple Basil Pesto

Purple Basil Pesto

Just scored some gorgeous basil at the Farmer’s Market this morning. We had a choice of the regular bright green basil, or a deep purple mottled variety. My daughter smelled both kinds, as we are 'smellers'. How can you not go to a Farmer's Market and not smell your food? Is that weird? She opted for the bright green sweeter variety. The dark purple was not as sweet smelling and gave off heavy herbal notes of spice and licorice. Sorry, kid. You lose on this one. Mommy wants the purple one today.  Read more about Purple Basil Pesto

Fall Felted Ball Garland

Fall Felted Ball Garland

Today's crafty diversion - a Fall felt ball garland. These are easy to make and fun to decorate with for any season. I quickly strung together about 30 felt balls or so with a thick needle and embroidery thread. As to not impale my hand, I used a piece of cardboard to push the needle through on a table. They are not attached in place on the thread, so I can manually space them out as I'd like. This is not a great project if you're OCD because you'll spend way too much time trying to evenly space the balls apart (like I did). Read more about Fall Felted Ball Garland

Things That Are Scary

Claw Foot Tub - Things That Are Scary

I asked my daughter what things are scary to her and being that she’s eleven now, she just rolled her eyes. I pressed on. What were things in the house that were scary to her when she was younger? Noises, things, rooms, etc.? Her eyes widened and I could almost see the movie reel playing as she recounted her spooky past. Read more about Things That Are Scary
