No Thank You

One of my favorite blogs is Healthy Helper.  Today, Kaila has taken on the writing prompt "No Thank You" and discusses some things she would rather not have in her life.  Her post then transitions to expressing gratitude for favorite activities, items and people with "Thank You, More Please".

I think both are wonderful writing prompts, but have limited myself to five for the "No Thank You" list.  In no particular order, this is what popped into my head.

Garden Guest: All Natural Insect Control



The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young.  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  Children love it!

Yo Yo Party People! It's Tuesdays with a Twist Time

Our news this week...  Rain and cooler temps visited our area the last couple of days, for which we are very grateful.  Our rain barrels were completely empty and plants were looking awfully crispy.  This morning though, things are much greener.


I am so glad you are here to party today!  There is no limit on links as long as they are family friendly including giveaways, Etsy shops and other link parties.  Please remember to visit some fellow party animals and leave positive comments!

Tractor Seat Transoformation

Are you ready for another de-stash challenge?  Me, too!

Meet Your Hosts


Here's where my project begins.


My Matriarch Aunt asked me if I wanted this tractor seat from my grandparents' farm.  Easy decision!  Of course I said, "YES!" planning to create something immediately.

Herbs: A Place to Begin - Lemon Balm Tea

Being part of our county's Master Gardener Speakers Guild has been a lot of fun. My program is titled "Herbs: A Place to Begin". It is for anyone who might be curious about growing herbs or is just beginning to use them. I give simple advice for ways to incorporate tasty herbs into your every day life. After such a sweet reception to my presentation, I've been adding regular posts about herbs.
  

Watch for the ones titled "A Place to Begin" and check out my blog page Herbs.
