Weekend Picks - 6/8/12

It's been another fun and interesting week of finding places of interest on the internet.

1) How about we start with Mason Jar Salads from I Love Pinterest? I love this idea and plan on trying it out the first chance I get!

2) I love keeping a nature journal and here's a cute idea for designing a cover for one from Handbook of Nature Study...

3) Here's some good advice from Frugally Sustainable on how to treat sunburn naturally...

4) How about Frozen Ice Pops for the hens? The gals from Fresh Eggs Daily shows us how mint helps the flock beat the heat!

(Note: I actually made some of these this week and my hens loved 'em! Thanks for the great idea, FED!)

5) Try your hand at making homemade tortillas with this post from Reviving Homemaking. She does a really neat thing by giving us a cost comparison chart between store-bought and homemade and there is a significance. Check it out!

Well...that's it for this week! Have a blessed weekend!

All My Love,


  1. Thanks so much for featuring my frozen mint ice pops ! Chickens have a very hard time cooling down, so anything you can do to help is SO they're pretty and fun to make !

    1. Oh, Lisa! Thank you for sharing the idea in the first place! My hens absolutely LOVED these! I've got a tray of them in the freezer for them right now and will probably keep them going all summer long! (Or until my mint runs out! Which ever comes first! LOL!) Thanks, again! :)

  2. Thanks for sharing my post! I love homemade and if I can make it more economical than store bought, then I love it even more. haha. :)

  3. I hear you, Whitney! Homemade is always better and, yes! If it's more economical than store bought then it's even sweeter! Thanks for stopping in! Have a blessed weekend! :)

  4. Thanks for sharing my simple nature journal cover idea. My journal brings me much joy.

  5. I love nature journaling, too, Barb, and you've given me so many good ideas! Your site is one of my all-time favorites and I appreciate you more than you will ever know! Thanks for stopping in! Have a blessed weekend! :)
