Thrifty Tip Thursday!


Today's Thrifty Tip is about saving......... on our grocery bills. How can we do this? Stretching out our food purchases  - by NOT throwing anything away! Have you even bought one of those fresh herb packets, in plastic containers, found in the produce department? If you found a packet of thyme for $2.00 (unlikely) in […]

Windows Renovation and Undo – The Reveal


This has been a long arduous task... BUT - the results were so worth it. In the beginning - Part I - Dismantling and Part II - Reconditioning UG.LY trim (so sorry for quality) Then came sanding stripping, conditioning and staining. We hired a finishing carpenter to duplicate our homes original molding... So happy with […]

Windows Renovation and Updo – Part Two – Conditioning, Staining & Polyurethane


To see what I mean, check out Phase One! BUT THE WORSE PART IS FINALLY HALLEUIAH! The next step was to use a Pre-conditioner to the bare wood...
