Frugal Endeavors – August is a bowl of cherries


Nothing says “summer” like a bowl of BC Cherries and a book to read.

So far, August has been a bowl full of cherries.   Continue reading


Season’s Greetings from Miss Wiggleyhead.

For those of you who were wondering, Miss Wiggleyhead made it back from her visit with her family. She tip toed in on Christmas eve and hung her sweater on the tree (instead of just throwing it on the floor with the rest of her laundry).

A double purposed piece of clothing. It can keep Miss Wiggleyhead warm and it can also be used to decorate your Christmas Tree!

Just before crawling off to bed, she hung out her stocking in the hopes that Santa would not look too closely at his naughty list.

Maybe she was not as naughty as I thought. This is what she found on Christmas morning:

Have you tried these mini mandarin oranges! They are so good.

Not a bad haul.

If you want to print out your own, the colouring book can be found on the Bee’s Knees Industries Blog. I found The Wonder Woman poster on Pintrest.

Someone gave her several Barbies. She was grateful for each one of them but she liked the superhero Barbies and the Skater Barbie the best. I told her she was getting too old to play with dolls. She didn’t say anything but she did give me the strangest look.

All the best in 2018!


The Adventures of Miss Wigglyhead – All Dressed Up for Christmas

Well, it’s that time of year. The air smells like pine needles and fresh baked cookies. The holiday season must be here!

Miss Wigglyhead received an invitation to a Christmas party with some of her distant relatives who live somewhere out in the forest. She won’t say where, as like most Gnomes, they are very private and reclusive. She did want to make a good impression, so a new outfit was needed.  Continue reading

Mini Lavender Bunny

Earlier this week, Miss Wigglyhead woke up from her long winter nap.  She took one look outside at the rain and said she was going back to bed until the sun and the hot weather returned. Unfortunately, she found that she could not fall back to sleep. And she was lonely. I made her this stuffed lavender bunny to keep her company and help her fall back to sleep. This bunny would also make a nice addition to an Easter basket or tucked under a child’s pillow to help them sleep. Continue reading
