Homestead Moments

In the midst of daily busyness I’ve found something that I think is valuable as a homemaker. Every now and again give yourself a little reward. Something that makes you smile when you see it. I’m not talking about anything huge. In fact small and simple sometimes brings me the most joy.

I love mums. I was in the grocery store a few weeks ago and saw a pretty pot of mums for $2.99. I bought it and it now sits on my back porch. I enjoy seeing it as I walk in and out of the house.

Another one: these pretty candles. My daughter Sierra made them for our table using items we already had in the house. Very simple: wine glasses, coffee beans, tea lights. 

Find joy in the small things in life!

    1. Thank you Laura!! Thank you for being such a faithful reader! I really love your blog! It's looking great!! :) Crystal :)

  2. I love the candles idea - how clever! I always buy a bunch of roses each week. It gives me enormous joy and I'm finding it's replacing the need I had to buy comfort food e.g. Chocolate to make me feel better.

  3. I have been reading your website for a few years now & just want to say a huge thank you. Mostly it's been for fun but our finances have changed a lot in the past year & it's been tight. I now find your recipes & help not only fun but extremely helpful at stretching our dollars. I have always know the simple things in life are what really matter but now it really has meaning for me. Thank you so much for all you share with us.

    1. Thank you so much for such a nice comment.. :) Crystal
