Caramel Iced Coffee Hack - Cheap, Light, and Home-Made

Do you like iced coffee?  I didn’t think I would like it.  After attending a baby shower where coffee punch was served (and I swooned), I decided iced coffee might taste good, too. Soon after, I ordered a caramel iced coffee at McDonald’s.  I was hooked. …

Pasta on the Porch - a Tablescape

We’re heading outside today…for pasta.  HH’s favorite food (except for fried chicken, of course) is pasta. I thought it would be nice to have a special dinner on the porch. Sorry, friends…another cloudy day…dark pictures again.  I lightened them as much…

Have you known someone who had a heart attack that sent them to the hospital for heart surgery?   That’s a traumatic experience, I would imagine. There’s a different type of heart attack, though.  It requires no surgery and no hospital stay. A spiritual…

Highlights of Green Tablescape

Now that I’m home, I have a confession to make.  HH and I took a short trip to Chicago early this week.  America is truly the beautiful,  and we love to take it all in.  HH loves to drive and drive and drive (while I nap and nap and nap – wink). We left…

Never Polish Your Brass Again - Paint It!

I grew up polishing brass items my grandparents brought home from Pakistan.  My grandfather worked there for a few years, and they came home with many souvenirs. Painter Artist Mom (PAM) and Handy Builder Dad (HBD) were graced with this brass coffee…

Last year, when I re-upholstered a footstool, the worst part was removing old staples.  If you’re removing old upholstery where someone was oh, too happy  with their staple gun, it’s pure torture!  In fact, you might remember I opted to upholster over the…

Deviled Eggs of Red, White, and Blue

Happy Friday, y’all, and welcome to May!  Can you believe April is over already? I decided to get ahead of the game (for a change – ha!) and get a little red, white, and blue going for some Memorial Day planning. Lots of people dye deviled eggs for…

A Different Way to Use Louvered Shutters

We’re back in my family room again today.  Most of you know I’m making new window treatments.  Are you wondering what’s taking me so long? You know how I am…slow, busy (aren’t we all?), and prone to wander when projects drag on too long. For the record,…

French Flair Cutting Board

I had a sudden realization while setting the table for yesterday’s post (Highlights of Green Tablescape). I’d skipped telling you about transforming this cutting board into something fun, with a French flair.  It was such an easy project, too! Pinkie…

What's Blooming Wednesday #22

We had very high winds with our rain Sunday night.  We woke up Monday morning to a sudden new view – a bloom-less view.  All the blooms you saw last week in WBW #21 are gone.  All of them.  Blown away. We lost the eucalyptus tree I was nursing along. …

Arise and Do It!

This week while reading the scriptures, I was drawn to this verse. Source We (the Jubilee Journey group) just finished reading the book of Ezra yesterday.  It is a short and wonderful book! God’s people had been in captivity for 70 years, and the Lord…

What's Blooming Wednesday

Can you believe it’s been six months since my last post about what’s blooming in The Land of Making Do?  Things have gotten off to a very slow start this year, and we’ve had so much rain! This has been the condition many of our days.  It’s so muddy,…

Work
Occupation
I care for my family, our 2 dogs, 3 horses, and dig in the dirt regularly. I love to cook, read and write on our breezy porches, sew home decor, DIY and often rehab nothing into something. I do my best to fluff our nest while blogging about it all.

Introduction
Hi! I'd love for you to join me at http://CurtainQueenCreates.com for fun in all things DIY for the home.
Bragging rights
Handsome Hubsand (that's how I spell it, because that's how I say it, y'all) moved me to the country, so I've become a blogger - my contact with civilization way out here in The Land of Making Do. Almost every day, I'm the Curtain Queen at http://curtainqueencreates.com. (I've got to be queen of something, after all.) Occasionally, I'm just a wife, mom, daughter, and friend with little stories to tell if you give a hoot. So, please visit "Who Gives A Hoot?" over there at http://hootaboutit.wordpress.com. Autumn of life brings surprising new adventures, and blogging is one of those for me! I hope you'll join me for the fun of it all.
