What’s Cluckin’? 18

Just a heads up, my laptop is rapidly on it’s way out and until I get a new one (hopefully soon) posting might be irregular. All my pictures are on my  laptop and hopefully salvageable by some super computer-savy friends.

Vintage Lace Pennant Banner

My wedding reception is being held in an old barn in late September. We’re going very simple and rustic with the decorations. I decided to make several styles of pennant banners to decorate the space. The main entrance to the barn is lined with fences that will be hung with the vintage lace banners.

What’s Cluckin 17

Last Weeks Party didn’t happen. But I had a good reason! We had our new bed delivered (a king size!! Whoo! Room for both of us and the dog and the cat!) and I had to finish painting. 
Ok, not quite. I didn’t paint the ceiling, the trim or one wall. And I only really finished 2 wall. But one of those 2 wall is the one the bed goes against! That wins some points right?

DIY Autumn Barn Wedding Invitation

A few weeks ago I was freaking out over my wedding invitations. They look (and were) fairly simple but it seems like they took forever! There were (conservatively) 1 million steps. In the end I made 51 invitations and 51 reply cards.

How NECTRESSE™ saved my summer!

affiliate
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NECTRESSE™Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

My summertime guilty pleasure just got guiltless!
I love a good sun-ripened tomato. I also love to dip them in…. sugar.
I know! It’s terrible. Beautiful, healthy tomato. Sugar. Not really a great combo. 
I blame my grandmother, when she used to watch my sister and I she would pick tomatoes from her garden and slice them up for us on a plate with a little pile of sugar. There is just something incredibly tasty about a tart tomato and with a fine dusting of sugar. 
I’ll be honest, when I had to option to review NECTRESSE™Sweetener I was skeptical. I’m a whole food/unprocessed food person, so I had some reservations. I looked into in it and found that it is made from the goodness of real fruit – monk fruit extract! It is 100 percent natural and zero calories per serving too. 
I found that I could eat a fairly large tomato with one packet and get the same sweetness from a small pile of sugar. The NECTRESSE™ sweetener melted into the tomato like regular sugar and it tasted just like sugar. I’m super crazy about artificial tastes and nasty after tastes but with NECTRESSE™ there aren’t any! I’ve been using it in my coffee and I can’t tell the difference.
 It might not be the healthiest snack (like, oh I don’t know, a plain tomato) but it’s up there! And seriously, if this is all it takes to get your kids to eat a tomato what are you missing out on? It’s a lot easier to carry around a packet of NECTRESSE™ than a 5 pound bag of sugar. And those packets? Those babies are strong, I threw a few in the wasteland that is my purse and they survived like little armored tanks of sweetness.
Be sure to get a FREE sample of NECTRESSE™Sweetener for yourself, then all you need is a tomato!
