Spring may be on its way!

I think may be here, sorta. Last night was one of those nights were 1 hour of sleep was all that was going to happen(if you don't know me well, this happens often, I know I'm weird!) So I feel asleep around 4 and was wide awake around 5 am. I jumped on the computer as it is the only activity that wouldn't wake Chevy Man or Max.

I finally woke Max up about 7 and took him outside. I was surprised by 2 things. This will show you how random Idaho is... Snow and Birds chirping! I was disappointed when I opened the front door and the group was lightly dusted with snow but the longer I stood there I realized birds... Birds were REALLY chirping! I love that first day when you hear the birds after winter.. such a great start to the day. Spring is on its way.. err.. here!
I'm off to work on my creations! Remember all the fun stuff I got on Saturday? It is actually going to be turned into something, I promise :)


  1. I love the sounds of the birds in the morning. I will have to take pictures of the big bushes aka 'bird condos' that sit in front of my window where I do all my 'computin' lol.

    Can't wait to see what you do crafty!


  2. Debbie- please do! I'd love to actually see birds :)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.


-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
