"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

About Me

Oregon, United States
I am a happy, Christian, wife and post-homeschooling mother. I have spent the last several years homeschooling and now I am "adjusting" to a new season of life as "empty nester". In 2010 we moved to be Host/Caretakers at a Bible Camp. We look at our ministry here as preparing the way for the gospel to be shared as well as encouraging believers in their daily walk. I am a farmgirl at heart and love the country, I love gardening and food preserving. I also, love tea parties!! I also have a Titus 2 heart and want to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. I love having friends over and teaching them how to make bread or put up pickles. And as we work, I love to encourage them to love their husbands and their children and to be Keepers at Home and all that implies and I love that you let me do that here!! Hope you enjoy visiting my farm and walking through a journey in life with me.......I hope at some point in time I can encourage you in your walk and in your home..........

Extreme Makeover!!

Well, it has actually been a few years since we bought
this little basket at the Goodwill. It had broken hinges
and so the lid was never connected, if I took it anywhere,
I had to carry it under one arm......
And it remained quite a mess for some time.....
All it needed was the hinge to be fixed!
How hard is that?!?!?

I decided to use fabric....looped it through the
remaining wire that was left....

then through the whole for wire on the
lid to the basket.....

Tied a nice tight bow and there you have it!!
A basket makeover!!
Things fit well inside.....
even room for extra fabric for my project....
even room for some crocheting.....
and the yarn!
I usually keep more than one project in my
basket in case i get tired of working
on one .... I can change. :)
Boy, a basket makeover, a bucket makeover...
what will be next?!?!?
The weekend is here, so will not be around
for a couple days. Finishing up planting seeds
inside and going to finish some that
go outside. My wonderful hubby
put pvc hoops over my raised beds,
so I will be turning those into
little cold frames.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
