DIY Glass Filler Lamp

 I had so much fun making this lamp! It took me no time at all once I had all of the materials I needed. The best thing about this lamp is that you can fill the glass with anything you want!! You can put photos inside, you could put starfish, rope, mercury glass balls….the options are endless! I chose rope because the lamp that inspired me had rope in it, but now I’m thinking I might just add a starfish as well.

Foil Pack Dinners

I have to admit, I was hesitant to share this recipe. Only because it doesn’t look very appealing. But, it was so tasty and so easy to make, that I thought it would be silly to hold back. I’m also going to go out on a limb here and say this recipe boarders on the healthy side too *gasp*.

Homemade Organic Applesauce and Apple Juice

When I set out to make my daughter’s baby food I had no idea how much I would enjoy it. She’s completely off purees now and I still miss it! I never built up a large stock of baby food in the freezer just so that I could spend that time in the kitchen peeling, baking, steaming, boiling, and blending. What can I say, I’m a tattooed, foul-mouthed domesticated housewife. And it’s awesome.
