I have that book! Totally forgot that she had a roasted tomato recipe in hers too! I'll have to give hers a try and compare. Thanks!

Working on that right now in fact! Cabin plans are closer every day! Yes, we do have a flat screen tv upstairs in the loft. It also doubles as the boys' computer monitor. Aside from football season, we rarely watch television. We use it more for the occasional movie, and the boys earn game time on Friday afternoons or Saturday morning. We have low folding camp chairs from REI that work great for seating up there. We seated 12 for the Superbowl one year!

Oh, this sounds good! Thanks for tipping me off to Charles Dowding. For some reason, his name sounds familiar...

oh, I should have opened those curtains and doors! What was once organized on those hidden shelves has become a random hodge-podge of pantry items! It's up for a reckoning soon :)

So, do you pot herbs just for indoor use, or do you transplant from your garden at the end of the season and bring those inside? I've tried the latter and it didn't work so well for me. Would love to know of your success

I'm familiar with staghorn fern, though I've never owned one. One day...

Thanks for the little house love, Tracy! The bookcase is actually three Billy bookcases from Ikea. You can purchase doors for them if you want that. I chose doors only in the center, with curtains on tension rods on each side. A trim carpenter trimmed it out with simple crown and base mouldings, which makes it look more finished and built-in

Sadly, the tomato plants in my little garden didn't offer much this year. Oh, I was so hopeful! I planted them in full sun, tied them up, pruned the suckers, watered plenty, but just a few were all we got.... Continue reading

Keep trying with the maidenhair ferns! Mine is in a clay pot, and I water once a week, taking it to the sink and soaking it until water runs through the drain hole in the bottom. Then, it's happy til next time. You may have to adjust, depending on your climate, but this was my watering routine in Alaska, Florida, and now here in Wyoming. Good luck!

Oh, that's a good thought to think! It's off the floor!

These are gracious, poignant, truthful words. Beautiful. Thank you for giving a window into your world, your life, and your heart. Thank you for encouraging us to see the moments in our days with which we can create, love, or be. Blessings on you and your family, Amanda

It was late afternoon, and I was supposed to be elbow-deep in dinner makings. You know - hungry boys, a hungry man, and all. But the way the last fingers of light were slanting through the windows touching things so... Continue reading

Heidi, I'm so glad to hear of another successful application! I've had people ask me if they could do this over laminate, and I didn't have an answer for them. Thanks for sharing!

Sometimes I wonder if it's too much heart and soul. I had my guy read this one before I posted it & his eyes said absolutely yes. So glad you read here!. xoxo
