Food on My Face: Homemade Makeup

In honor of another Fun Friday, I thought I’d share my tips on making up makeup!  People seem to find it amusing that I wear food-based makeup.  (Can’t imagine why!)  Regardless of how strange the idea might sound, it’s simple, inexpensive, and easy to make!  Plus, I really like how it looks and feels on […]

Our Crazy Daisy

In honor of our first Fun Friday, I thought I’d share a little video of one of my hens, Daisy. She needed to be cleaned up a little, due to a slight injury, but she is not a fan of bathtime!  Hope our Crazy Daisy gives you a chuckle or two! If you enjoy it, […]

From Coop to Nuts

From Coop to Nuts

I should make it clear from the start that this won’t be a true “soup to nuts” article on keeping chickens; the information is simply too vast to condense it here. However, I do think the title suits the subject. It can be read as either: owning chickens can drive you slightly nuts, or you may […]

For the Love of Dandelions

For the Love of Dandelions

I love dandelions. Maybe “love” is a strong word, but I really do like dandelions.  I’m also a fan of what they represent: a chemical-free lawn. Unfortunately, I live in a neighborhood where many lawns are chemically treated and mine tends to stand out … especially at the height of dandelion season.  I bite my […]

Homely Beauty

That’s right.  I’m pretty proud of my homely beauty.  I love that many of the products from my beauty routine come right from my home.  In fact, most the things I’m wearing on my face today are edible.  No, I don’t eat the leftovers. Prove it, you say?  But of course.  Here’s a summary of […]

Natural and Noteworthy: Rosehip Seed Oil

I’ve never been much of a trend follower.  In fact, trends have a habit of getting on my nerves … unless they happen to coincide with my own tastes or wishes, that is.  Maybe that makes me a trend hyprocrite.  Either way, I recently stumbled upon a beauty trend that has fallen right smack into […]

Henna Gabber

Sorry for that title, there was a Hedda Gabbler reference there and I had to take it.  (The college professor who taught my senior seminar on Henrik Ibsen would be proud.  Nah, he probably wouldn’t.)  Anyhow, I seriously digress… So, I come to you today from my sofa with my head coated in grassy-scented, brownish goop, wrapped […]

Why I Began My Journey to the Natural Kind of Life

This path first presented itself to me when my children were very young. I’d always loved the natural world and my favorite place to be was outdoors in the fresh air. Still, I thought little about our home’s indoor environment. That all changed the first time I read a list of the toxins people were […]
