Happy Friday to you all..
A lovely homey evening here at our house..
The snow is falling outside but Terry and I are snug and warm inside..
He and Sammi are napping on the couch and I am chatting with you dear ladies..
We try and go out on Friday night for our little date night but in the Winter we usually just stay at home or have some company over..
If we don't then I just try and plan a nice supper and we just relax together..
For tonight, though, I thought I would share a couple of little home things I made..
I have always loved hearts but with February almost here I decided to add them..
I had bought a few yards of some wool at Value Village (one of our Canadian Thrift Stores) for only a few dollars..
There was enough to make 2 of the runners (the other one is for a Keepers of the Home prize) and also 1 valance..
You can see them in the window over there..
It is a brown, black and barn red check ..
The hearts are red ticking fabric..
Nothing fancy but frugal..
I love changing little things especially when it does not cost much..
I had mentioned in a posting a bit ago before Christmas about Terry painting a few things in the kitchen..
With black paint, of course.. smile..
This is what he painted..
The doors to the pantry..
I just love it..
I had painted the hutch, table and chairs awhile ago..
He also painted the little pass through doors to the Dining Room..
I think black paint is a very frugal way to update your furniture or whatever...
Frugal and Easy...
Especially, when he does it for you.. smile..
It is almost time to make supper here as I was taking these pics..
Someone is getting hungry..grin..
Not a great pic but you can spy on him, eh!!
This is what is was looking like outside then..
The days are getting longer.. thank you, Lord..
I always look forward to January because the days get longer and we always have a little break in the weather with the January thaw..
grin.. We have not needed it this Winter..
The weather is certainly not typical Canadian Winter weather..
I am not complaining, mind you..
I also made a little Friday night date treat..
Have you ever made these?
Yes...they are as good as they look.. grin..
We certainly won't eat them all.. We have a dear son who has no one to cook for him except his mama..
But a nice cup of tea and one of these will be lovely after I get done here.. grin..
Here is the recipe..
Friday Night Treats..
1 sleeve of saltine crackers..
Place these on a cookie tray..
Turn your oven on to 400 degrees F.
In a little pot place 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of butter..
Whisk together and bring to a boil for 2 or 3 minutes..
Pour this mixture over the top of the crackers and spread..
Place in oven for 7 minutes..
Sprinkle a package of Milk chocolate chips over the top.. Let them sit for 5 minutes and then spread with a butter knife..
Place in your fridge until totally chilled..
These are a lovely gift, too..
Well my dear girls have a blessed evening and I will try to get back to you all soon..
Thanks so much for dropping by and for leaving your dear comments..
Remembering the faithfulness of our Lord..
Love to you all..
