Changing Blog


Just as you need a command center in your home to stay organized, I’ve decided to organize my blog with a few ideas that I have picked up here and there.

I live in Vermont.  It’s a beautiful state with clean air and four seasons.  That’s where I have my passion.  The four seasons for a year in Vermont.  I want to have a chance for sharing ideas and finds for a more interesting and fun day by using resources that anyone, anywhere can use.

I like to make the most of a budget.  So each post I want a Frugal find.  Then I want to have a seasonal recipe.  Next I want to have a Fashion find.  Then I want a photo of the day for landscape.  Then an inspiration.  A little something to cheer up a day.  Household Tip.

So that is where I am starting and will add here and there sometimes.  So here goes:

Frugal Find


Sewing can be a lot of fun.  I have heard that it can also stop depression.  I have a nice sewing machine but no table.  The above table is $129.00 at Walmart on line.  It costs twice that for the very same table most anywhere else.  It is rated 5 stars.  Well worth the money and it will save you money by being able to make tailor made clothes in latest fashions as well as neat things like quilts, covers for appliances, curtains, place mats and table cloths and the sky is the limit on creativity.


I like the above chicken that holds those plastic bags that you get at the grocery store.   There are all kinds of patterns to make similar holders.   I use those plastic bags by recycling them for lining my small garbage can.  I just put two bags together and it saves me buying plastic liners.  Works really good for me.


The table folds up like the above which makes it nice.  There is a shelf underneath to store your sewing machine.


I like the above style chair.  It’s from Wayfair with free shipping from on line.  It’s on sale for half price but about $200.00 anyways which is expensive.  The way I look at it, it’s a beautiful piece of furniture that will last.  Would look so nice for a chair for the sewing table.  I would use my income tax return to be able to get it.  It’s my taste and everyone has their own taste.  Just use your creativity on the style you like.  Wayfair is an awesome website.  And Walmart on line has some neat finds sometimes.


Another view of the chair.  It could double as an office chair.

Seasonal Recipe


This time of year soups are always good.  I like Free styling a soup or make it whatever you want soup.  Some ideas are 3/4 inch pieces of carrots, fennel, celery, leeks, winter squash, potatoes or parsnips, cooked beans, lentils or chickpeas, sliced kale or green cabbage.

Then add chicken if you like.

I use unsalted chicken broth in my free style soup.  I start out by sauteing chopped celery, onion and carrots.  Then I add the broth and veggies and some kind of canned beans that I rinse.  And I like to add herbs de province or any herbs that I have on hand.  Sometimes I add kale or power greens.

A little artisan bread with it and a nice garden salad with the dressing that I like with I put in a little mason jar and shake it up.  I like vinegar, mustard, olive oil and herbs.


I like those Olivia Organic Power Greens.  Then those rainbow cherry tomatoes, red onion and baby bella mushrooms.  A little shaved parmesan and a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Fashion Find


I like the style of that top.  The necklace is cute also.


Also the above pocketbook is real leather and only $29.00 at Target on line.  It’s a crossbody and so fashionable.

Photo Landscape


The above photo is near Stowe, Vermont.  Vail from Colorado just bought the resort at Stowe.  But my dream would be to have a view like that and have a house built just the way that I like it on a piece of land like the above.



Cheer Up thought


Something to think about as winter is winding down and Spring is only 21 days away.  All the garden seed catalogs are out now.  It’s a fun time to plan a garden.

Household tip


A nifty trick that will keep your tulips upright is to put a penny in bottom of vase and then fill with water.  It keeps tulips from drooping.

So that is a start on how I want to organize my blog to make it helpful and interesting.  I hope that it is interesting to you and helpful as well.
