Sunday Something: Awards

2 awards in 1 week. How lucky am I? I love all you new readers and I love getting to know you! I have been given an award by 2 different bloggers-
Melanie at Regular Mel
Chelsea at The old simple life

It is so fun to get this award. I love reading your posts and getting to know you. I truly love comments and the conversation that it creates.

7 Things about me:
1. I am a serious night owl. Always have been. Not sure why, but I’m far more productive at night.
2. I am in love with my dog. You’ve met him right? Duramax is the light of my life!
3. I secretly want all those things I say I don’t. Why? I just know certain things aren’t going to happen for me, so it’s better to not set myself up for disappointment.
4. I have a serious addiction. Video games. I can’t even have a gaming console in my house because I will never stop playing. You think I’m kidding.. I’m not.
5. I am obsessed with cows. Especially jersey’s. I love their big brown eyes!
6. I have always been a huge craft nut. I’m not great but I sure try, and fail a lot!
7. I listen to rock and roll/alternative music. Disturbed, Linkin Park… anything not soft or soothing.

What are you up to this fine Sunday morning?


  1. What's up, Brandi?

    I found you from the Alexa hop and am following on GFC as well. I can relate to gaming as have been a gamer since my father first put me on an orange crate to play pinball (a nickle for five balls) in the 1950s. Have a great day!


  2. Hey I am a serious writer, reader, blogger, cat lover and Night owl just like you. I found you from bloackaholics. I am sub, and all that now, glad to meet you.

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.
