  1. It's been a long time...

    Well I guess I should update a bit. We finished the kitchen renovation the end of November 2014. It came to $35,000. We were not impressed. Over $10,000 was electrical work. We needed to reroute around some knob and tube wiring and add a new electrical panel. While the ceiling was down we had them run wire upstairs to the bathroom and the sewing room. They ran some extra circuits up there to rewire the entire upstairs as we update one room at a time. Not likely to happen. We'll be downsizing ...

  2. My next personal challenges...

    by , 10-13-2015 at 09:58 PM (My Journey on the Frugal Side of life)

  4. Fall Table Setting

    by , 09-06-2015 at 12:40 PM
    I buy most of my table setting pieces at thrift stores and flea markets. Everything for this fall table {besides the silverware} was purchased second hand or on clearance. One of the things I miss since moving to Florida is the change of seasons, so I like to bring those beautiful autumn colors in my home however I can.

  5. Cranberry Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

    by , 08-29-2015 at 02:10 PM
    These cranberry pumpkin muffins are moist, delicious and perfect for fall baking. The sweetness of the cranberries work wonderfully with the smooth pumpkin taste.

    They freeze well so you can make extra and save them for another time. Place them individually in plastic wrap and put them in a freezer bag. These muffins are great as holiday gifts for friends and neighbors. Enjoy!
