Warming Rice Bag

Ok, so I’m not going to talk about the impending cold, because well, that is just painful so instead I’ll tell you about a precious little baby that is about it be born.  A friend of mine is pregnant and her cutie (yes, I know he’s cute because I’ve seen the ultrasound pics and wow, they have sure come a long way in 9 years), is making his appearance in a few days.  Anywhooo, I wanted to make something for {Read More}

Ok, so I’ve been MIA lately and I only have two words to explain why… BEACH VACATION!! My Better Half’s company blessed us with the use of their Hilton Head condo for a week.  SO, I’m basking in the sun!! There are no features here this week because I’m too busy enjoying my precious family and making memories.  I’ll double up the features next week, when I’m back to reality!

Zucchini-Pizza-Crust

Thanks for joining us this week! It’s an emotional week for me as tomorrow morning, I send my oldest off to the first day of his Senior year.  His Senior year!??  Can I really be saying that?  I remember bringing him home from the hospital 17 years ago and showing him his bedroom.  Wow, how time flies!  For those of you that regularly follow Saving 4 Six, yes, I’m still homeschooling, but my two oldest will be getting 3 classes {Read More}

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Vanity

I have a super crafty friend, Suzie.  Actually, I think my desire for rustic and country-ish things comes from her.  You see, her family is CRAZY crafty.  Like so crafty, they have a craft sale each year for Christmas, and attending it is the way I kick off my Christmas season.   They decorate a barn with all the lovely things they have handcrafted and then you get to buy from their selection.  It’s so much fun!  Anyway, this friend {Read More}

Crock Pot Cabbage and Sausage

Crock Pot Cabbage and Sausage 1

Summer is my most favorite season (if you didn’t already know that)!  I love the break from school, the temperatures, and the delicious produce that is so very affordable this time of year. Yesterday, I made zucchini bread from some hand-me-down zucchinis, and for dinner I made this delicious Crock Pot Cabbage and Sausage. Using my crock pot during the Summer is such a great way to save on time in the kitchen and helps avoid overheating the kitchen on {Read More}
