Farmhouse Easter Table Setting

You know, I was thinking about just how excited I am that spring is here.

When I was a little kid I hardly noticed the changing of the seasons.

I didn't dread winter, and all its hassle of having to bundle up in warm socks and a coat, every time I wanted to step outside.

Of course I was excited for summertime out of school, but I didn't dwell on the upcoming humidity and scorching hot days.  

In fact, all of that never even crossed my mind.

Things have sure changed now, though.  

As an adult, life just gets easier in the spring.  

The kids can run outside barefoot, without a coat, and play out there all day.

I can leave the door wide open without worrying about the cold.

And, best of all, we get to celebrate Easter.

Four different accounts in the Bible tell the story of a man, who made an outrageous claim to be God, rising from the dead.  That's a pretty incredible story!

And the man who told it said that if you trust in Him your sins would be forgiven.

So, on Easter, we celebrate that free gift of salvation.

To reflect this simple message, I kept my table setting minimal.

For the table runner, I brought in some grain sack with blue stripes.

For the hard boiled eggs, I kept them au naturel.  I love the little imperfections of eggs sourced locally.  

They are all different colors, shapes and sizes.

I added in some branches, from a bush outside, and white tulips in chippy ironstone pitchers.

I found the white plates from World Market and love the way look underneath my Blue Nordic Ironstone bowls.

I brought out my simple, crocheted corner, white vintage napkins.  

I added in some potted herbs to reflect what is going on outside.  I can't wait until our garden is bursting at the seams with cilantro, parsley and thyme.  Soon!

How to Make Homemade Water Kefir Soda

How to Make Homemade Water Kefir Soda

Probiotics have been all the buzz for several years now.  

Ten years ago you may have only heard the term "gut health" thrown around by in-the-know west coast Yoga types,  but nowadays you're likely to hear it coming out of your grandma's mouth.

These things may just seem like a trendy fad, but there is actually some serious science backing up the hype.  

For the very abridged version of the story:  

There are good guys in your gut and there are bad guys.  God put the bad guys in there, so they could break down your body at death (not the happiest topic, but it's true).  They were meant to be there in small quantities and the good guys were supposed to proliferate and make a healthy body.

If you have hung around here with me for very long, you know I'm a health nut.

We drink raw milk, make homemade sauerkraut, raise backyard chickens and make things like grain free granola.

But I am not sure that I have shared with you my love for a healthy home, as of yet.  

I like to make my own hand soap, tooth paste and cleaning products with essential oils.

Now, of course, my home is farm from perfect.  You already know about my painting addiction and affinity for bleaching drop cloths.  Eh. Balance, right?  You simply can't control everything.

But one easy healthy switch to make is the sheets you sleep on every night.

Hardwood Stairs Makeover with Annie Selke's Dash and Albert

Hardwood Stairs Makeover with Annie Selke's Dash and Albert

When we first moved into our home almost nine years ago, every square inch of the hardwood was covered with blue carpet, laminate or tile, except for in the living room.

We removed the carpet in our master bedroom before we even moved in.  

It was a few years before we rented a sander and tackled the upstairs bedrooms.  

We refinished the entire top floor and even ripped the carpet off the stairs.
