Join me as I embrace and share American country style by reclaiming the past...my family's past. Come along as I make my house a home on a $0 budget with reclaimed, repurposed, recycled and found treasures all out of my grandparent's old house, local junk shops and my parent's attic. And since we have to eat too, I'll sprinkle in some gardening, country recipes, and a whole lot of southern hospitality.

Independence...

This is a day so many think about parties, cookouts, family, and other fun activities we have available here in America.  I can't help but think about the price that was paid for the freedoms we enjoy.

I'm not sure this generation realizes what we have and how important it is to preserve it. 


I, however, am truly thankful for each and every person who has made freedom possible throughout the history of this great nation including our veterans, statesmen and patriots.


There are also the unsung heroes -- family members and friends left at home as loved ones went away to serve. They too made great sacrifices for our freedom. Think about them today as we celebrate another year of freedom. 

Here are some of their stories:-)
