Fall is Here

Fall is Here

Fall is here! My favorite season. We're about 2 weeks into it, but I just felt inspired by the gorgeous colors this morning. I had to drive into town and the gorgeous views of fall foliage on the drive are just insane. Some of the views actually look like fake backdrops. Just heavenly. Fall also means it's time to start getting ready for winter! For us homesteaders up here in Maine, there are loads of things to do in preparation.

DIY Yummy Skin Butter

DIY Yummy Skin Butter

Hey friends! I wanted to share this yummy skin moisturizer because as we are deeper and deeper into this winter, I am using it more and more! It's a really simple recipe - easy to make at home. It's more like a body butter than a cream or lotion - for use on any dry skin, hands, feet, cracked skin, those rough patches on the elbows, knees, etc - you get the idea. I probably wouldn't use this one directly on my face unless I had a lot of dry skin there. It's also a great one to leave, ahem, in the bedroom if you catch my drift.
