Kiddo and I love our faeries. We’ve been collecting them since she was a little girl. Part of the collection came from my own personal stash that was hiding in my mothers attic. What you don’t see in these photos is the separate fairy world in her bedroom in the form of Tinkerbell and all of her friends. There is a few play sets. Sadly, since Monster High came into the picture, Tink and her friends don’t get played with often. Some of their belongings have made their way to the fairy garden in the living room. [Read more…]
I’m obsessed with fairies and have been for as long as I can remember. Sure, like many young girls I latched on to Tinkerbell in Peter Pan and was jumping up and down with excitement when the Tinkerbell franchise spread its wings. [Read more…]
Not a recipe post today. Just some photos of the things that could have been. 😉 Sounds a little weird, I know.
I love asparagus. It’s one of my favorite vegetables. All my life my mother has called this goodie ‘ditch weed’ and for good reason. Every summer when we would travel from Oklahoma to Michigan my mother and I would take a drive out to my grandparents old farmhouse, just a few miles away from their current home.

Here it is. I know I am long overdue but here is July’s update for the Trash to Treasure Garden. We saw a lot of rain up here in the north and while it was good to have those rain days here and there, it wasn’t so good when it rained for days on end. Last week we saw a really bad rain storm that resulted in golf ball size hail. The rain came down really fast and the wind was whipping through my trees. Branches went flying. I had a little laugh as I made a video for Mr. Yum who was away at camp with kiddo. I felt like I was back in Oklahoma in tornado alley. [Read more…]
I haven’t updated much because for the longest time it seemed like the garden was at a standstill. I did get a large amount of weeds pulled and then I spent a day adding more goodies to the garden. Between husband and I we were able to get a few videos and I tried to snap some photos.
Things are going very well for a couple of amateurs. I mean, we have done gardens in the past, but simple things like radish and tomatoes. Once year we did containers and had tomatoes and cucumbers. I think there were some peppers in there too. Point is, this is our biggest garden and we have quite a few goodies that we don’t have much experience growing, if any at all (hello, potatoes!)
