Fall Tip: Preserving Pumpkins for Decorating Your Home

How to preserve mini pumpkins to decorate your home.

How to preserve mini pumpkins to decorate your house for Fall.

This is a popular search on Pinterest this time of year and I get asked by friends and family all the time how I keep my Fall decor to fresh through the entire time I have it up so, here it is! I get it! I’m right there with you, the second the clock strikes August you are itching to get your Fall decor out and make your home all cozy and full of Higge. But it is way to early to get your pumpkins and not have them rotten in a few week, let alone make it through the holidays.

How to Preserving Mini Pumpkins to decorate your home for Fall:

What you will need:

  • A Wash tub, large pot, or a cleaned stoppered sink.
  • Bleach
  • Vaseline (petroleum jelly)
  • Soft cloth or paper towel

Step 1: Soak your pumpkins in a solution of 10 parts water to 1 parts bleach. Let them soak, upside down (this keeps them in the water more) for around 10 minutes.

Step 2: Dry them thoroughly, I usually let them sit for a  few minutes, too. Then buff them all shiny and pretty with a dab of vaseline to seal them and make them shine. This keeps bacteria from getting in.

Note: If you notice that they get some mar on the skin, nicked somehow or the stem falls off, soak them again to kill any germs or bacteria and then reseal them. The vaseline acts as a sealant keeping anything out.

Preserved well, your pumpkins should last for several weeks and a few months even! Check them every so often to make sure they aren’t getting any soft spots. If they do, they are starting to rot, you’ll want to toss them.

Then you can decorate your mantel and all around your home with your mind at ease! Then YOU can be the envy of your friends having your house impeccably Fall-ready come September 1!

Adorable, Easy, and kid-friendly DIY 4th of July Star Shirts

Adorable, Easy, and kid-friendly DIY 4th of July Star Shirts

So a little late but better than never! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but you know how it is.. life!

This past 4th of July was a riot and marathon of a long weekend. Our family usually spends the holiday together, hanging out at my parents house or at my father’s boat on the lake, generally letting all the grandkids run wild like animals until they fall asleep where they stand some time well after their bed time. It is my opinion that this is the best way for little kids to spend long, hot summer days! We set up a “redneck water park” by filling a few inflatable pools, a slip n slide, and hundreds and hundreds of water balloons!

I had alerted my sisters that I wanted to take some photos of all the grandkids during this weekend because we didn’t have any recent, decent photos of not only all of them together, but the individual kids. So, I also wanted something cute for Drew and Owen, the other boy in the set of cousins to wear for the photos since the girlies always have cute matching outfits.

So, I did what anyone does these days… I took to Pinterest! I found a photo of a cute shirt with stars and new my little one would love to help make it. I set out to pick up the supplies I needed the tI didn’t have. They are pretty cheap and not only easy to get but you most likely have many of them already! If you are looking for an adorable easy and kid-friendly DIY 4th of July Star Shirt, look no further.

You’ll need:

– Freezer Paper

– A small spray bottle

– Paint

– A T-shirt

– An Iron

– Cut outs of stars (or whatever shapes you’d like)

First you will need to print out the shapes for a stencil for the freezer paper.

Adorable Easy kid-friendly DIY 4th of July Star Shirts

Once you have your stencils and you’ve cut out the freezer paper, you’ll need to take a warm iron and iron the freezer paper to the shirt in the pattern you’d like. Make sure you put some newspaper inside the shirt to make sure the stars don’t stick to the back and to make sure the paint doesn’t soak through.

Adorable Easy kid-friendly DIY 4th of July Star Shirts

While you are waiting for the stars to set from ironing, mix your paint. Take about a quarter of the spray bottle and fill it with paint, then mix it with a bit of water so it is nice and thin and you are able to easily spray it out of the bottle. Then there is nothing left to do but put some newspaper down and let your little one go to town! The best part is it is nearly impossible for even the tiniest of hands (or most destructive of toddlers!) to mess up!

Then all you need to do is simply peel of the stars and there you have it! The cutest, easiest and most fun you can have and you end up with a cute shirt for the little one to wear for the 4th of July holiday!

Adorable Easy kid-friendly DIY 4th of July Star Shirts

And the kids turned out as cute as buttons! Of course… there is always the toddler factor. Like when your son, who was SO EXCITED to wear the shirt he made and then when the day comes throwing a HUGE fit and not want to wear it. That’s life with a toddler amiright?! At least one cutie wanted to wear it and since then the little one has wanted to wear it all the time. Go figure!

Grumpy pants…

But they are kinda cute and we got some good photos of them all. 😉

New Years Traditions (And what the heck is Hogmanay?!)

Happy New Year!

New Year Traditions are so interesting, but none more exciting or widely celebrated than that of Hogmanay, the most wide of all New Years Traditions.

Well, we made it. Barely, but we made it through this terrible, crappy, often times insane year. Many of us have been crawling, weary and ragged towards December 31st. It is the time of year when we reflect on the year past and look forward to making positive changes in the new year. There are things you can do to prepare yourself for the year to come, more than simply making a cheesey resolution you won’t keep after a week.

But first, lets take a look at one of the coolest new years celebrations in the world: The Scottish Hogmanay.Hogmanay

Hogmanay is a very big deal in Scotland. It’s the biggest day in the festive calendar, a celebration that makes Christmas Day seem very small indeed – and it’s like nothing else on Earth. Hogmanay is what the Scots call their New Year’s Eve celebrations. The origins of the word are unclear – some say it’s a corruption of the Greek words for ‘holy month’, others that it’s of French origin – but the celebrations themselves go back centuries.

It wasn’t until relatively recently that the Scots even began celebrating Christmas (since it was banned for almost 400 years), so what we know as traditional holiday celebrations aren’t all that popular yet. So, where did it come from and why is it a big deal?

When the Vikings began to raid around the Winter Solstice, they partied afterwards, and after many years, the celebrations began to mix with the celebrations of Samhain and Yule and ultimately ended up being the celebration of Hogmanay (if you’ll allow me to condense things quite a bit for brevity).

In addition to a huge (several days long) party, there are a lot of traditions associated specifically with Hogmanay in Scotland.

They do their “Spring cleaning: “In some communities, or the ritual cleaningof the kitchen for Passover, families traditionally did a major cleanup to ready the house for the New Year. Sweeping out the fireplace was very important and there was a skill in reading the ashes, the way some people read tea leaves.” –

The two most widely known (and the ones I love most) are the First-Footing


Of course, all over the world, people sing Robert Burns‘ version of this traditional Scottish air. How it became the New Year’s song is something of a mystery, and honestly what it replaced is one of my favorite tradition songs that I sing to my son every single night (The Parting Glass). At Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, people join hands for what is reputed to be the world’s biggest Auld Lang Syne.

You can work on actively releasing the negative parts of the part year and walking into the new year with intention and real, attainable goals. You can also help lift your spirits and sort of, ungunk your self, your home and basically your life!

A lesser known or practiced tradition but one I do much more often than just at New Years is Smuding. I like to smudge my house for the new year and if you’ve never smudged, you are missing out!

Smudging is burning herbs, most commonly Sage, to get rid of negative energy on yourself, your home or any space. Smudging can be useful when you’re feeling depressed, angry, resentful, unwell or if you have felt or are feeling a negative presence in your home or you are feeling unwanted spirits. You would normally use a smudge stick to do it, and you can make your own, or simply buy one at a new age store. Smudging is thousands of years old. it was used by Native Americans, in ancient Rome and in Greece. In ancient Egypt it was used as a way to cleanse a space from bad spirits and negative energy.

SmugdingTo Smudge: light a smudge stick and let it catch fire. Extinguih the fire and let the smoke billow from the stick. Walk around your home letting the smoke get everywhere, in every room, in cupboards and small spaces. The smoke is not dangerous and will not harm you, your pets or small children. Use a bowl to catch any ashes.

Another way to mentally prepare yourself for the new year is to get real about what happened in the last year and physically write down some goals for the new year.

Sit down and write a letter to yourself.

  • List 3 things that worked for you in 2016. Make a commitment to continue to do those things.
  • List 3 things that didn’t work for you in 2016. Make a commitment to change those things.
  • List out the best parts of the past year.
  • List out the worst/hardest part of the past year.
  • Write out your hopes for the new year.
  • Decide on and write out your focus for the new year.

But until we start having our own fire festivals in full viking regalia… Hogmanay will have our New Years beat. Either way, Happy New Year everyone!

Do you have a particular way you ring in the new year?

Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies

There are an infinite number of shortbread recipes out there in ever flavor imaginable. It is a great cookie to try to put your own stamp on. Several year ago i came across a Red Velvet Shortbread Cookie recipe, but had yet to make these delicious sounding cookies. So, I thought this year was the year.

Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies

I love shortbread for its smooth and not overly sweet flavor and with these, the addition of the cocoa makes them even more delicious. I chose to dip them in some white chocolate and add holiday colored sprinkles just to be festive but you can choose to leave it off, dip them in something else or find another unique way to make them special!

  1. Preheat oven to 325*
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, and cocoa.
  3. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter. About halfway through, add the food coloring and blend until the mixture looks like fine crumbles.
  4. Form into a ball and knead until smooth.
  5. On a floured or cornstarch surface, roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Using a floured or cornstarch cookie cutter, cut out. (I used a round 1 1/2 inch cookie cutter)
  6. Place cookies on an uncreased cookie sheet no less than 1 inch apart. Bake for 20-25 minutes. I set the timer for 15 minutes and check every few minutes until the centers are set.
  7. Melt chocolate over a double boiler until completely melted. Dip or roll in chocolate and cover with sprinkles.

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, add chocolate chips, peanut butter, butter and vanilla Microwave on 50% power until all melted and smooth. (note: heating on full power may scotch the chocolate. Also, heating too much/hot will scotch the chocolate, once the bowl is too hot to handle and chocolate is soft but still lumpy, remove from microwave and stir with a spatula until chocolate is fully melted)
  2. In an over-sized bowl, put chex mix and pour melted chocolate over it.
  3. Gently mix with a wooden spoon until all cereal is coated with chocolate.
  4. In a gallon bag, pour 1 cup of powdered sugar. Then add the chocolate coated. Then add the remaining cup of powdered sugar. Shake bag until completely coated. Keep in freezer or refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

Salt Dough Ornaments

Salt Dough Ornaments

Salt Dough Ornaments

Well Thanksgiving is in the books and the Christmas/Yule season is now in full swing. It is a tradition in my family to go get the tree on Thanksgiving day, so the fragrance of pine is already filling the house. We’ve been going to the same man to get our trees for more than 20 years now. Vern is a “Yooper” Or a U-Per, aka someone from the upper peninsula of Michigan, and his wife will tag the best trees every year with a little blue ribbon. So, when we get there the first thing we do is ask the guys there, which Vern’s wife picks are.

Christmas Tree Hunting

It warms my heart to see my father and my son, who is named for my late brother walking through the tree stand looking for the perfect tree. (I am literally tearing up just writing about it.)

So, now that we have finally pulled out the Christmas decor, it’s time to turn our full attention to all the greatness of the Yule season, including, of course, some super adorable keepsake crafts to help commemorate how little your little ones are.

If your kids are anything like my little toddler son, they are growing like weeds. And if the size of his mom and dad are any indication, my little one won’t be little for so long. So, I wanted to make some salt dough ornaments like my parents have of all of us kids form when we were little to try to remember, when he is driving me nuts as a teenager, how cute and tiny his little hands and feet are.

If you’ve never made salt dough before, it is incredibly easy and something you can literally whip up in an afternoon with no prep or thought.

Salt Dough Recipe

1 Cup Salt
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Water (or just enough to incorporate the other two ingredients into a soft dough)


In a large bowl, add salt and flour and mix to combine.  Gradually add the water, using only enough to form a dough. Turn the dough out onto the counter and knead until smooth. Roll out to about 1/4″ – 1/2″ thickness. Remember if you want to be able to hang them, the thicker they are the heavier they will be so roll to thickness accordingly.

Once you have it rolled out to desired thickness, cut with cookie cutter or into any shapes you would like. If you would like to hang them, take a nail, pencil, or wooden skewer and make a hole to string your ribbon, rope or cord. Allow to sit and dry out a little bit before putting in the oven. This is a little trick I found make a difference in helping your dough not puff up like you’re backing bread instead of staying crisp and holding it’s shape. Once it starts to dry out a little bit, preheat oven to 180* or as low as it will go and bake. The amount of time it takes for them to completely dry out will depend on how large and thick your ornaments or shapes are.

You want to basically keep your oven as low as possible and just allow them to dry and harden. If you try to do it too fast on a higher heat the dough will “bake” and puff up. I will even some times bake them for a while and then turn the oven off and leave them in the oven to continue to harden for several hours.

The shape you make them is entire up to you! I choose, last year, to make a hand and foot print of my then two-year old. I made a santa out of his hand and a reindeer out of his foot.

DIY Birdseed Ornaments

How to make Birdseed Ornaments

DIY Birdseed Ornaments by Ruffled Feathers Birdseed ornaments are a fun, easy project you can do by yourself or with kids as small as toddler age! They are great for decorating a special, “Critter Tree,” as my father-in-law calls it in the yard for the birds, and they make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, and co-workers!


Just a few easy ingredients, you might have most in your cupboard already!

You’ll want to follow these steps pretty closely, though, so that you get nice firm ornaments that aren’t too dry to hold together.


  • 1/2 C water
  • 3/4 C flour
  • 3 TBS corn syrup
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon unflavored gelatin (such as Klox)
  • 4 C birdseed

Additional tools:

  • Large mixing bowl
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • cooking spray
  • cookie cutters
  • skewer or other implement for making string holes
  • twine or other natural string
  • rubber spatula

Cookie cutters work best if they are at least an inch thick, so that the ornaments are thick enough to be stable and easily hung. Cookie cutters that are very intricate aren’t ideal, either as they are hard to pop the hardened ornament out and maintain the detailed edged.

  1. Spray the cookie cutters with nonstick spray. Arrange on wax paper. Set aside.
  2. 2. Combine water, corn syrup in a nonstick saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  3. 3. Reduce heat and add gelatin, whisking continually until entirely dissolved. Clumps may appear, but as it gets hot enough, and you continue to stir they will disappear. This is the mixture, which will bind your ornaments together so you do not want to cook it down too much or they will be too dry to hold up.
  4. 4. Transfer liquid to mixing bowl and add flour. Stir the mixture until it is well combined, it will be similar to a thick batter and there should be no large clumps.
  5. 5. Add birdseed and mix until all the seed is well coated. It will be thick and stiff.
  6. 6. Spray your hands thoroughly with nonstick spray and fill each cookie cutter, pack tightly to the top with the birdseed mixture.
  7. 7. Be sure to press firmly into every corner of the cookie cutter, loose or not firmly packed ornaments will fall apart easily. The mixture will dry out quickly, so it is important to work quickly.
  8. 8. Form balls with any extra birdseed mixture.
  9. 9. Create the holes with your lollipop stick or skewer. Make sure your hole goes all the way through. Wiggle the skewer around to be sure the hole is large enough for your twine, and press down the birdseed again before removing the skewer.
  10. 9. Allow ornaments to dry on a wire cooling rack (or just on the wax paper). Wait several hours, or until they are firm enough to remove from the cookie cutter molds.
  11. 10. String the ornaments with your twine or other natural fiber string that will be ok to leave and allow the birds to reuse for their nests once the ornaments are gone!

Making DIY Birdseed Ornaments is a great way to spend a chilly winter’s day with the kid before heading out for a walk in the woods or to your own backyard (and then back inside for some delicious hot cocoa, of course!)

Everyone’s Thanksgiving… in GIFs

You have been preparing for this day all week. You are excited about a gigantic, delicious meal. Get excited.

Plus you’ve been putting in some serious meditation and mental focusing in for the last two weeks to be able to deal with the large amount of crazy that is headed your way dealing with your entire family for a whole day.

And you know that you are going to be halfway drunk by the time you get there any way.

Then it’s time to get ready, and we all know this is a competition so you need to look fierce.

You make your entrance.

See annoying cousin, B-line for the alcohol so that you can feign pretending to care to hear about how well she is getting over that weird rash that has been plaguing her.

Then it’s starting to get late in the afternoon and you are so hungry, and the food is starting to be put out on the table and you’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting until…

Until you’ve eaten your body weight inset potatoes and turkey and you’re all:

Until someone brings out the desserts and you’re all:

Then you realize you’ve upset the ratio of food to alcohol in your stomach and you are all:

Then you realize you literally might be dying.

After dinner and dessert the small talk continues, but by now you’ve had too much to drink and the really messed up conversations begin:

Then it’s time to leave but you are basically immobile from the amount of food you’ve just eaten and the several gallons of alcohol you’ve been consuming for the past 12 hours.

Then you get a cat nap:

Then you realize it’s time to go black friday shopping!

But you’re still drunk and you’re not insane and you remember you don’t go black friday shopping. So…

The BEST Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I know it’s cliché but Fall is truly my favorite and I am not afraid to say it. The crisp air and Fall colors and, of course, the spice pallet. I can’t get enough of the smell of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves…  The second I can break out my Cinnamon brooms I get all giddy and excited. And of course, my most favoritest part of Fall – it contains my most favorite holidays: Halloween and Thanksgiving! Christmas is magical, I agree, but here is why Thanksgiving is better: there is none of the pressure of gifts for everyone and ALL of the gathering around a really good meal!

I know you’ve probably been to the grocery store about nine times this week already and we are barely into Monday night. Lists have been made, forgotten, made again, second trips and the last-minute additions. So, who wants to think about the day-before-thanksgiving dinner???

Surely not you. But here is an easy and delicious tradition you can start THIS YEAR without adding anymore stress to your holiday planning.

Ok ok ok … being from Chicago, I am particular about my pizza. BUT, I am also realistic about my ability to get things done easily some times. I also like to keep in mind that my toddler like to eat his pizza from the crust back, so he is particular about the stuffed crust frozen pizzas.

So, for an easy and delicious day-before-Thanksgiving dinner, we do pizza night paired with the most delicious, kid-friendly, and EASY! Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

best day-before-thanksgiving dinnerTo make things even easier on my stress level AND my pocketbook, I will pop into Dollar General  to pick up Libby’s Canned Pumpkin and my toddler’s favorite DiGornio frozen pizza.

Libby’s is my go-to canned pumpkin choice, again, because for us in Chicago, it is a local company and I love to support local businesses. And I always use the gold standard Toll House chips in my cookie recipes.

I just toss the toddler in the car and run down that day and grab the few things I need, and a few things the toddler needs (sure, you can have the Lisa Frank-style coloring book, because we totally need it). ON TOP of that, Dollar General has some pretty kick-ass coupons available for you right now. You can get $1 off your DiGornio’s Pizza and $1.50 off your Chocolate chips!

This recipe is so crazy easy, DB literally did almost all of it himself. Plus, you don’t need a mixer and it all goes in ONE BOWL!
Drew baking cookiesThis recipe calls for you to melt the butter instead of cream it. Because you want these to be super dense, you only need the yolk to help hold them together.

Keeping little fingers out of the bowl was nearly impossible!





The best part about this whole set up is that, because the dough has to chill for an hour, you can cook the pizza while it’s chilling and then eat your pizza while the cookies are baking! It is literally genius. To bake up a batch of these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies and relax, Thanksgiving will work it’s self out 😉
