The Homesteading Carnival - All Around The House Edition

Welcome to the March 30, 2009 edition of The Homesteading Carnival.

I thought it might be nice to present this edition of The Homesteading Carnival as it pertains to the different rooms and areas in and around our house. So here goes the All Around The House Edition of The Homesteading Carnival:

From the Kitchen:

Linda Mundy presents Ginger Orange Cookies posted at LJM's Kitchen, saying, "These cookies are easy to make, and you may find them addictive!"

presents Danish Sugar Cookies posted at Indoor Garden Musings, saying, "Enjoy!!"

Alex presents The Ultimate White Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe posted at Home Life Weekly, saying, "This white chocolate chip cookie recipe is perfect for those times when you need the gorgeous taste of chocolate."

Amanda Schoolfield presents Countertop Compost Bucket posted at Better Is Little.

From the Bathroom:

Aparna presents Lemon as a beauty aid posted at Beauty and Personality Grooming, saying, "The diminutive lemon is a very versatile beauty-aid and this cheap and golden-coloured fruit has excellent properties for enhancing your looks. Simple lemon-based preparations, you can mix in your own kitchen, will surely bring a dramatic transformation in your beauty regimen."

Aparna presents Fragrant fennel – Uses posted at Beauty and Personality Grooming, saying, "Fennel seeds are a common sight in the Indian kitchen. Their aroma is breathtaking. Though both aniseed and fennel are called saunf in ‘Hindi’, fennel is somewhat larger than aniseed. Commonly used for seasoning and garnishing in Indian cuisines, this seed has other uses as well."

From the Bedroom:

The Smarter Wallet presents Organize Your Home With These Space Saving Ideas posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, "Thanks!"

From the Garden:

Tony Clifton presents How To Build A Shed - How To Build A Shed Door posted at How To Build A Shed, saying, "Visual guide!"

Lara DeHaven presents It's Garden Time Again! posted at Texas Homesteader.

Thomas W presents How To Build A Bumble Bee Nest posted at Happy Farming.

Stephanie presents painted pots posted at Make It From Scratch, saying, "pretty plastic pots by Fiona."

Stephanie presents The Great Potato Experiment Year Two posted at Stop the Ride!

Nancy Muller presents Gardeners: What To Plant Now -- Very Comprehensive posted at Recession Depression Therapy, saying, "Am I the only one that still struggles to figure out if I'm planting at the optimum time? Thank goodness for this resource."

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of the homesteading carnival thc using our carnival submission form. The next carnival will be hosted by Rose at Grandma Rosie's Texas Home.
