Easy Fall Craft:  Tin Can Pumpkins!

Easy Fall Craft: Tin Can Pumpkins!

Fall is almost here!  Despite the God awful heat and humidity we have been experiencing here in Georgia this week the calender says fall is on the way.  I am starting to see leaves drop off from the trees and it is darker in the evenings earlier that it was last month.  Soon we will have crisp, cool mornings and piles of leaves in the yard to rake up.  Okay, that part of fall I am not looking forward to! I decided to try my hand at an easy fall craft and turn some leftover tin cans into decorative pumpkins to adorn my table.   I love crafts that take 'trash' and turn them into something creative.  Why?  Two reasons...one I am a very 'green living' sortof person.  I like being able to say that I salvaged something from the trash and/or recycle bin.  Even better than reducing … [Read more...]

Marraige is an adventure so create a wedding registry that is ready for it! #TargetWedding

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own. When my husband and I got married, we were pretty much poor starving graduate students.  Our furniture was a miss matched collection of whatever I found at yard sales and none of our dinner dishes matched.  We were lucky if we could find a dish in the cabinet that didn't have a crack in it, much less anything that was stylish and attractive.  When we set up our wedding registry we had our eyes on things that were practical.  Salt and pepper shakers may seem boring but I was excited to finally have a matching set.  If I knew THEN what I know NOW I would have planned my wedding registry totally differently!  Who cares about matching salt and pepper shakers when what really makes a marriage is the … [Read more...]

Frosted Grapes Recipe:  Elegant for Appetizer or Simple Treat for Kids!

Frosted Grapes Recipe: Elegant for Appetizer or Simple Treat for Kids!

Grapes are one of my family's all time favorite fruits.  If I put out a bowl of grapes I can pretty much be guaranteed that they will be gone by the end of the day.  I have never actually done much COOKING with grapes, though, so when our Food Bloggers group decided to spotlight grapes as our weekly food challenge I was a little bit stumped.  Honestly, I don't think I have any recipes in my repertoire that call for grapes!  Usually we just pop them in our mouth until the bowl is empty!  My first attempt at a grape recipe was a total flop...I tried making grape jam and the resulting bowl of lumpy liquid was SO not anything that resembled grape jam!  Oh well, off to get more grapes and find a new recipe, right?  When I came across the idea of frosted grapes I was intrigued! So, why … [Read more...]
