    One of my 20 wishes is to paint my "woman cave" otherwise known as the puter room :D. I wanted something cheerful and I picked "pumpkin pleasure"...which is really odd for me cuz, it's a shade of orange and I generally don't do orange. Here's a link showing the color: Olympic A22-6 Pumpkin...
  2. Sewing
    As some of you know, we live in a 5th wheel. Well the biggest problem for me has been not having a place to sew. Well, hubby and I decided I could take out the kitchen table and chairs to make a sewing space. We never used the kitchen area - it was just to tight with hubby and I and kids if...

  4. Home Environment
    ~I'm going to drive you all crazy with my questions about building a house! I whittled my favorite house plan down to 1293 square feet(also simplified the style to save money ;) ). For some reason it seems too large and too small at the same time. DH and both grew up homes around but less than...
  5. Laundry
    ~So I'm trying to save a bit of money by air drying clothes. I used to use an indoor rack when I had just one child. When #2 came along there was no room to set up the rack anymore so I dried outside. Unfortunately #2 has bad allergies so I started to use the dryer 99% of the time. We're still...

    I am not sure if this is the forum to put this in, but I am putting it here anyway. We went over to the Cape (Titusville, Fla) to watch the Space Shuttle Endeavor lift off. We took our grandson (took him out of school to do this). It took us 2 hours to get over there. We had a good morning...

  8. Home Environment
    Is anyone using the rooms in their house for something other than their intended purpose? At our old house we had a combined Living/Dining room, but the kitchen was big enough for eating so we used the dining area as a TV room, and the other half of the livingroom as a kid's craft area. My...

  11. Homesteading and gardening
    I've been gardening for a long time and the last few years my garden has not done well. So while looking for ways to make it better, one of the things I was looking at was to put less plants in and ran across All new square foot gardening by Mel Bartholomew. The part in book that made so much...
  12. Appliances
    Does anyone use one? Have any recommendations? I have been looking around for one and am beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed. I am not sure how to judge the electricity consumption is it based on the watts? Ceramic vs. radiant... blowers etc.... I am hoping to heat the kitchen and living...

    I rearranged my living room today because I needed a new look. This is my dh's grandma's old dresser that was given to us. ( I have a thing for dressers) I think it's cozy. This is on my cell phone so the pic is not as good.

  15. Question and Answer
    My DH wants to know if anybody has tried these, and if so, how they worked. We're looking to expand our stockpile space and thought they might be a good idea for storing sweaters and winter linens. From the look of them in the ads, they really compress stuff.

    Clearing a Space for Change In life, we tend to have an easier time acquiring possessions than we do getting rid of them. Just as we harbor emotional baggage that is difficult to let go of, our lives can tend to be filled with material objects that we may feel compelled to hold on to. Most...

    Just wanted to post my blog.. I have actually had it for a while, I just never posted a link on here. :usa: So, if you're bored sometime take a peak. I mostly talk about my good shopping deals, building our home and just trying to get as frugal as we can.
