Old and new from far and wide, December 2015

Hello, we hope your week is going great on this first day in December. Take a look at what friends and other blogger are up to currently or have done in the past. So much information from older posts on just about every blog, today I am sharing these.....

Hard boiled eggs from Choosing Voluntary Simplicity. Hard cooked eggs have always been a challenge for me to peel. Not to mention the green rings associated with over cooking. I need to try this technique. Apparently these are not only perfectly cooked, they are easy to peel. Score!

Bulletin Board Push Pins using vintage jewelry, from An Oregon Cottage. This is also a great gift idea. You know that lone ear ring in your jewelry box, now you can put it to good use.

Crystal Pendant Family Picture Ornaments, from Rook No. 17. All I can say about these is Wow! This is an especially creative way to preserve smaller, intimate family photos. Jenn is very creative, and these show that skill in full detail.

Cardboard Box Looms, from Craft Leftovers. What a creative way to be a crafter on the cuff!

Handy Kitchen Substitutions, from Common Sense Homesteading. Because it is not always convenient to make another trip to the store.....
