I’m super excited to announce that Melissa from Little Frugal Homestead is our new co-host on Farm Fresh Tuesdays… Welcome aboard, Melissa! Melissa shares a ton of frugal living information on her blog…I know you will love her!

This is really exciting for me because Little Frugal Homestead has been one of our regular contributors to the blog hop and Melissa has quickly become a wonderful blogging friend of mine. Please stop by her blog and welcome her to the crew!

One of my favorite features of Melissa’s blog is her weekly ‘Happenings on the Homestead’… Check out this post about her return home from Colorado!


Farm Fresh Tuesdays and Frugal Living on the Homestead!

Farm Fresh Features – Frugal Projects!

This week I chose the theme of frugal projects for my featured posts…in keeping with my theme today… and also because I absolutely love frugal projects. Please stop by and congratulate our featured bloggers! (As you can see, I really have trouble picking just a few features each week. But hey, the more the merrier, right?!)

In this post, Lisa shows us how she turned a $1 set of trivets from the thrift store into this cute pumpkin patch sign!

Blue Fall Hand Painted Flower Pot by Kristie at Love My Little Cottage

Kristie turns an ordinary terra cotta flower pot & a little paint into this pretty creation!

Fall Decor Inspiration by Heidi at My Sweet Cottage

I love how Heidi takes natural objects from her yard and turns them into adorable decorations! Check out her pretty wreath made from hops and this cute nest of ‘haunted hatchlings’ 🙂

Anita is always up to something amazing on her blog and last week she shared this beautiful creation from an old headboard!

Simple Quilted Potholder Tutorial by Suzan at It’s My Sustainable Life

I love how Suzan made her own potholder instead of going to the store to buy one! This is a great project that can be made with leftover fabric…and it would make a great gift. 🙂

How to Can Pears in a Water Bath Canner by Kathi at Oak Hill Homestead

Kathi is one of my favorite homestead bloggers! In this post she takes a bucket of free pears and shows us how to can them up for later…frugal food on the homestead!
