Winter White {Christmas Wreaths}

 I am going for a white Christmas this year!
I need to redo most of my Christmas decorations! 
I'm ready for a change, so we'll see how much stuff I can make between now and Christmas Eve!

{Homemade Granola} in a Jar

I am a HUGE fan of Granola!
I began making it myself when I was trying to lower my sugar intake.
 I found that the store bought granola was always
 WAY TOO SWEET for my tastes.   
I also like to vary the ingredients and try different combinations.

Glare No More {Window Tinting}

 I love large picture windows! In our Living Room, there is a configuration of six windows. The view is of our backyard and covered patio.

Due to last summer's drought, we lost a treasured Burr Oak tree this fall. Sadly, it provided not only lovely foliage, but it shaded our patio and kept the sun from invading our Living Room at sunset. 

After the tree was removed, my husband and I thought about planting another tree. In the meantime, the whole family was getting blasted by the glaring sun each and every afternoon. An immediate solution was needed!

Window tinting became the next viable option. I did my research online, and quickly discovered a favored brand and product. I found rave reviews for Huper-Optik Nano-Ceramic Films window tinting products.
