Woodworking Wednesday — Farm Stand — Part 1

IMG_8659 2.JPG

I am about to build a farm stand for all our excess eggs and produce. I have been searching the internet and Pinterest to find some plans that we like.

These are my favorites…

Farm Stand Board on Pinterest

We really need a cooler or a specific spot for eggs. We have duck and chicken eggs. It would be nice to have a spot for both. We tried delivering them once a week but that got away from us.

We need a top and some shelves underneath. I would really like the shelves to be slanted so you can see what’s in the baskets. We have a ton of baskets already.

I would also like it to be covered and portable. I want a big sign that says WEEKEND FARM STAND and/or EMORY FARM.

Here are some actual plans we have found so far…

Roadside Produce Stand

We are debating on buying something like this to get us by.

If y’all have any ideas or have any experience in this area please leave a comment!  How did your produce stand go?  Do you have plans for one?

DIY Bathtub Paint

We usually use pudding and food coloring but I had all this leftover baby rice cereal so I mixed it with water to the consistency that I liked and added the food coloring.

A little bit goes a long way you don’t want this stuff to dye your bathtub!

He doesn’t quite get the act of drawing or coloring yet so the rice cereal was perfect! He could just make a big mess. Then we sprayed him and the tub down.

Violet Syrup

For this recipe you’ll need

  • wild violet flowers
  • water
  • sugar
  • lemon juice

Add your flowers to a glass jar and add just enough boiling water to cover them. Steep flowers for at least 2 hours, overnight if you can. Don’t panic if your water is blue! Strain flowers out. Add equal parts sugar to flower water. Now slowly add and stir in lemon juice around a teaspoon at a time until the desired color is achieved! WALLA! Purple! Slowly bring to a boil for a minute. Next put in jars and store in the fridge!


Habanero Jelly

I have a couple recipes. I usually combine the 2 how I see fit but that is not recommended!

Easy Basic Jelly

More Complicated Jelly


Potted Plant

Great tutorial on potting plants for this summer!

My mom is horrible at plants so a succulent is a good choice for her or just some pretty cut flowers!



These are great because they can change them throughout the year!!



Treehugger Thursday — I’m a Mom, Not a Referee — RAISE THEM NATURALLY

My kids usually adore each other. They take pride in helping one another and each one looks out for the other. They’re precious and adorable most of the time. Lately, however, they have been bickering like CRAZY. Part of the reason, I’m sure, is because my youngest is nearly two and that’s just a challenge […]
