Scrolling through Pinterest, I have located some new special finds that I am lovin this week featuring a sewing theme ……
I had to start with this one….it was too lovely to pass up. [Read more…]
I have been searching for a scratch made Sour Cream Pound Cake recipe for a special occasion. I really enjoy making things from scratch just like my grandmother did. I can’t ever remember seeing her measure anything for a recipe. It was always a little of this and a pinch of that, well that is an entirely different post in itself. While I was strolling through Pinterest I came across a recipe that just fit and I am not really sure why, but it just spoke to me. It was one that had minimal ingredients and simple straight forward instructions to follow.
I am just mad about treasure hunting…..okay, let’s call it what it is sometimes JUNKIN. I absolutely love to search out treasure (and Junk) no matter where it is. If someone suggests heading out to a flea market, vintage/antique store, salvage yard….I am all in. Sometimes when Mr. BRV isn’t hard at work he will tag along with me and he loves it to (possibly more than I do, but don’t tell him I said that).
I wanted to share with you one of my latest places to find treasure. Mr. BRV and I were out and about and came across a great place in our own backyard in Asheville, North Carolina.
Welcome back to Kitchen Tip Tuesday, I will share some tips, tricks and how to’s from some vintage cook and recipe books that I stumbled across in my travels. You will definitely relate to some of these tips and trips, but some may be a bit strange.
When I started thumbing through these recipe books to see what would be more interesting. I found the “What Shall We Have For Dinner” section. This was a really great section, because it really helps to put a meal together for your family and eliminates some guess work.
Have you ever experienced one of those days while out looking for treasure, that you felt was a lost cause? Now your thinking how much time was wasted and now your going to go home empty-handed. You know what I mean, you have felt this same feeling of defeat.
On my last treasure hunting stop of the morning, I hoped that I would find something that would save the day. I made my usual rounds in the store and wasn’t finding anything that really spoke to me. Yep, I was probably the one you heard mumbling about what a wasted day I was having.
But WAIT…. [Read more…]
Do you remember in February when I introduced you to my new makeover vintage stool project?
It was a little beaten and shabby, but was definitely a beauty in the making.
The rattan had dry rotted and was breaking in a few places and as you can see it was almost completely off of one side. I just knew that I could repair the seat without a doubt. A little confession….I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to replacing the stool seat. I however, do have a couple of people who I can bend their ears for some tips on the repair.

Welcome back to Kitchen Tip Tuesday, I will share some tips, tricks and how to’s from some vintage cook and recipe books that I stumbled across in my travels. Now some of these tips and tricks may seem…..well let’s say a little different. However, I am sure we all can relate to some of them.
It is so wonderful to have Spring back….the fresh, new and beauty it brings.
Spring gives us the opportunity to open the blinds and start letting that warm glow into our home to refresh for a new season.
The resurrection is a new beginning as is Spring is to a new year. A time of rejoicing that our Savior has risen…..He has risen indeed!
1 Peter 1:3
I would like to wish each and everyone a blessed Easter!
What do you do when your laptop decides to take a week-long break down vacation?
Well, mine decided to do just that a week ago and I have been left high and dry without a computer. I feel so lost and out of touch.
However, I have taken this opportunity to catch up on a few things and I can’t wait to share them.
I have some new thrifty finds…
A seat replacement for a stool using hemp twine…
Spring table scape…
I did get desperate to make a post on my leave of absence so, borrowed my sons table. It works okay for a post, but that’s about it…no fancy stuff or pictures.
My computer is supposed to be revived this week, so I will be back with my lack of computer activities.
Thank you for being patient.
