  • This amazing pile of all organic produce hails from Hominy Valley Organic Farm, a gorgeous plot of earth just down the road from us. Tom's prices are astoundingly good (he posts a weekly listing of what's available on his FB page). If you're in the area, Fridays are open farm days for purchasing produce. If you go, please do tell him I sent you!

And the Winner of “Making It” Is…

Ashley, over at Life of a Little Woman, lucky number #175, according to my random number generator widget. I’ll be in touch soon for your mailing info.

Thank you so very much to all who participated. I LOVE giving things away! Those of you who know me personally can attest to this. From clothing to housewares, scratch-cooked meals to generous hugs, I love sharing what I’ve got.

    So excited! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  • Even though I didn't win the book, I did win by finally making my own eyeglass cleaner!

    I had been paying $3.50 for an 8oz bottle of cleaner. I made my own cleaner using a 16oz bottle rubbing alcohol ($1) and 16oz water (free) with a few drops of dish soap (basically free).

    I got 32oz of homemade eyeglass cleaner for $1. I would have paid$14 for that much at the store!!! And, my homemade cleaner seems to work better!

    Thanks to Ashley English for the motivation to finally get this “small measure”-type project done. :)

    I also just got your Canning & Preserving book.

    I am planting my first vegetable garden this year and I am very much looking forward to using the book to help me can some of my bounty. :)
