Pin It Tuesday: Christmas

I have got Christmas on the brain. I think it is in the air. It is starting to get colder at night, a definite sign fall is on its way. There is something about the anticipation of getting through December and enjoying Christmas day. I enjoy the feeling, smells, and overall experience. I always put too much pressure on myself. Did I buy enough? Did I buy too much? Why didn't I make that new cookie recipe? Did I spend enough time doing this, doing that... Oh the stress! However, I love it.

Crazy About My Baybah

What holiday are you in love with?


  1. I'm stopping by from Helicopter Mom's Alexa hop. I'm a new follower, too! I'm just getting started in the blog world. Love the photos and love pinterest.

  2. I can't believe that Christmas is less than 6 months away! I can feel the air getting chillier and the days are getting shorter but I think I'm staying in denial ;).

  3. Christmas is such a pretty holiday. It is getting so close! I guess I need to start pinning some Christmas ideas soon. I found you through Pin It Tuesday!

  4. I LOVE the PVC wreath! Following you now on Pinterest and GFC. You can follow back at Love the ideas and it is definitely time to start thinking about Christmas as it will be here before we know it. Happy Pinning!

  5. Oh my, I can't believe the holidays are almost among us. This holiday season is coming over too fast. Love all those items you've posted. Thanks for hopping on the Frugal Friday blog hop at vB.
    Wishing you a great day,

  6. Seeing those photos makes me long for the smells of pumpkin spice and cinnamon. I can almost feel the warmth from the fire smoldering in the hearth...

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.
