Pin It Tuesday: Canning

I don't know if I'm the only one but, canned food is just beauty to my eyes. It reminds me of my grandma and all the hard work she had to perform to feed her family. Gardening, weeding, picking, cleaning, canning.. Oh My!

  1. I was at an old lady's house last night with all sorts of jarred/canned foods. That's so funny! I had my camera, but was afraid to ask if I could take pictures. Although they talked our heads off.
    I see how nice this looks. We are going back,the husband is fixing something for us, maybe I will ask.

  3. I have to agree. Canning has always been one of the symbols of a happy and healthy hearth and home for me. In fact - I plan on learning more about it once I get the whole gardening thing down! :-D

  10. Alot of that food in those jars sure do look tempting! I have not had canned food since my mom passed away in 1988! Those are the best tasting green beans, I don't care what anyone says. Grocery store beans don't stand a chance! I am a new follower of your blog thru GFC and Facebook. I would love a follow back on both when you get a free moment. Thanks so very much and have a great weekend.

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?

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
