How to Make An Easter Sock Bunny

For the last few years I’ve set a goal to do at least one pin from my Pinterest collection each season. I don’t always reach that goal, but am slowly trying out pins. Today I’m sharing my DIY Easter sock bunny. There are several posts online for a sock bunny. I used a Dollar Tree pair of white socks. I could not find an all-white pair of men’s socks and had to buy a women’s pair. It works fine but is a little smaller than those shared elsewhere.

DIY Pink & Purple Spring Wreath

I was watching a documentary on Amazon Prime last Sunday. The Gardener is a story about Frank Cabot. He is the man responsible for a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century, Les Quatre Vents in Quebec. The story is about the history of his family’s home and how he began to expand the garden to create a series of garden rooms that are pure art. If you have Amazon Prime, do take a peek if you love nature, art, and gardens.

Slow Cooker Beef Barley Soup

We’re in the depths of winter, and it’s time for some serious comfort food.  My first thought is soups and stews.  One of the easiest and heartiest meals, Beef Barley Soup with vegetables is even better when made in a crock pot. It’s filled with tender beef, hearty vegertables, and plump barley. You spend so little time for such a wonderful filling meal.   Put it on and leave it alone while you do something else.  Add crusty bread or rolls and dinner is served.

How To Add Nature in Your Home

Take a walk in the great outdoors; it’s amazing to hear the birds chirp and to watch the flowers bloom. There is something about being outside that is exciting and intoxicating at the same time. It’s just a beautiful place to be in many ways.  In many places, the days can start being grey in the fall.  As I mentioned before, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects a number of people worldwide as days become shorter and darker. When  you’re stuck indoors in the winter, staying in your home can lead to cabin fever, increase your chances of getting sick, and even depress some people.

How To Make A Stovetop Fall Potpourri

September is here,  and many of us are ready to embrace fall with its colors and fragrance.  Many folks like to use candles or a dry potpourri to add a pleasant aroma to their homes.  I personally prefer an easy pot of water with some of my favorite ingredients.  You can use an electric simmer pot, a small crock pot, or a medium sauce pan on a back burner of your stove on low.  I find this mixture lasts for about 1 to 2 days of comforting aromas.  It makes your home feel cozy and filled with love without any chemicals.  Please note: This recipe is not for consumption although all ingredients are edible.
