I’m a middle-aged wife and mom, full-time homemaker, part-time library lady and owner of a small — very, very small — home-based business. I have spent the past thirty years learning everything I could about making a home and serving my family the old-fashioned way: simply, inexpensively, and creatively.

Little did I know, when I first married into this frugal family, that the very practices that made me roll my suburban eyes would one day make my rural heart sing.

This is my life on our little village homestead. I hope you enjoying coming along and spending time here with me.
