WELCOME to this week's Rock 'N Share party!

Unbelievably, it's already Wednesday! I am blown away with how fast time flies by! This weekend I helped the hubby with grading and it is already middle of the 3rd term!

All I can say is, "hold on to your hats...March is nearly here!"

St. Patrick's Day Wreath made of Scarves!

Late last year, a relative traced the Sexton name (my maternal family) all the way back to Dennis Sexton, who lived in Limerick, Ireland in 1524, so this year the St. Patrick's holiday is more meaningful to me.  I love genealogy research, especially due to the tidbits of information one can gather along the way. For instance, the research stated that most of the Irish Sexton men stood well over 6-feet tall. Our earliest descendants in America were makers of coaches and wagons. Fun stuff!

Being new at being Irish, and wanting to better understand the St. Patrick's Day celebration, I did a little research and found that St. Patrick's Day originated as a celebration of Christianity coming to Ireland. I also read that the shamrock was a tool St. Patrick used to teach about the Holy Trinity. I wonder if we have St. Patrick to thank for our family name. Sexton means 'a keeper of a church.' Anyway, after reading this, I could happily get on board with St. Patrick's Day.


So in celebration, I made a wreath for our front door. I found three scarves at the Dollar Tree to provide the seasonal color for a pretty wreath. Two had shamrocks on them and the other was brightly striped green and white.

St. Paddy's Wreath #scarves #crafts #wreath #DIY #door decoration
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I already had a oval grapevine wreath to use, so I covered it in velvet green ribbon so there would be no bare spots. Then I proceeded to hot glue the scarves to the ribbon-covered wreath. I fluffed and puckered the scarves until it appeared suitably full, then I added the green beads for a little sparkle. 

Finally, I cut petals out of green felt and assembled a flower by attaching the petals to a base circle of green felt, then I glued the flower to the wreath.  I already had the wooden shamrock and I just stenciled the word "Welcome" on it and hung it in the middle of the wreath. I used white tulle tied in a bow to hang it on my doorI love how festive it looks, especially now that I can really celebrate St. Patrick's Day...now that I am Irish!

Porch Parade: Faves, Pins, Menus & Tips #3

Welcome!
I'm excited about sharing this week's Fav's, Pins, Menu & Tips! It's been a good week ( I hope you had a good week, too!) and here are all of the highlights!


Thank you to everyone that joined and visited the Rock 'N Share party this week. A theme that seemed to stand out on a couple of the most popular posts in this week's Rock 'N Share, were about money, specifically saving it or making $$. Most people will agree the need to save, and cutting back on spending is on every one's mind. (These were some of the first posts I read this week, too.) Of course, holidays are always popular, especially with a FREE printable for St. Patrick's Day, and, finally, the ever popular makeovers, this time using homemade chalk paint on several household items. These were this week's most viewed posts and are now in the Rock 'N Share Pinterest Gallery.

 De-Clutter & Organization Quest

A big reason for my organization quest to find solutions for my clutter pockets is my belief that it will afford me more time to do other things of my choosing. If I have to muddle through clutter to find what I need to finish a project, it eats up time. So this week, I attacked one of my biggest problems...email! My personal email account has been in operation with this carrier for some years now and as a result, I was receiving mail from sources I no longer wanted. Although I had rerouted many of these items to junk mail, I always felt like I had to review them before deleting and that takes time! So I had an afternoon of "UNSUBSCRIBE-ing."  I lost count, but I would say I easily did 15-20 unsubscribes and, on several more, I altered the frequency settings. Because many of the sources would send multiple messages each week, it is hard to say how many emails I will no longer have filling up my Inbox and Junk box each day/week/month, but I know that it will reap tangible time savings!

Another organizational task completed was an inventory of our chest freezer which will allow me to plan future meals around the harvest we still have on hand from last year. I try to coordinate the emptying of the freezer and the time of the new harvest.  I see fried apples, zucchini bread, homemade tomato sauce, stir-fry and slaw on our horizon, all made from produce of our last garden. 

Favorite Pinterest Pins of the Week!

I have so many pins I want to share with you that I had a hard time deciding this section. I am still in the flower and garden mode, but with a creative craftiness to it this week! The folks that imagined and created the Pinterest pins I'm sharing today are truly artists. I'm sure I've said it before, but nevertheless, I thank God for giving the gift of imagination!

Dragonflies! When I grew up in Florida, I wasn't afraid of dragonflies the same way I was frogs and lizards. I had no problem catching the dragonflies to get a closer look; I guess that's why I still love them today. When I ran across these beauties, I wondered how I could incorporate them in my yard since I don't have a big wood fence for display (...I'm still pondering that one!). I really love the imagination that saw these dragonflies in discarded table legs and ceiling fan blades. I love the creativity!

Now for this next pin, if you looked quickly at the picture, perhaps you were as surprised as I was that these roses are made out of duct tape! They look stunningly realistic. I've made duct tape flowers before, but I now see that roses are the ideal duct tape flowers. I really think it's great that there is no need to remember to water these to assure they won't wilt.

Saltine Toffee...the best of both Salty & Sweet!

As I've mentioned before, I've only recently discovered the popular taste combo of salty and sweet, so when I ran across this candy recipe I thought it might be a hit among friends and family, too.  I like having something on standby for when company drops by, and this recipe stores well for such occasions (or so I've read). This takes little time and effort to prepare which is fine by me!   Salty, Sweet, Chocolaty goodness (this I can attest to)...Enjoy!

Homemade Saltine Toffee saltine crackers salty sweet toffee candySaltine Toffee


Ingredients:
1-2 sleeves of saltine crackers, (depends on size of cookie sheet you're using)
1 stick of butter
1 cup of packed brown sugar
( I used Splenda brown sugar blend)
2 cups of chocolate chips
(Note - added sprinkled pecan pieces over mine, too)

Directions:


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil, spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Arrange crackers in single layer on cookie sheet  Covering the entire sheet with no space between crackers

Heat the butter and brown sugar in small saucepan over medium heat. Stir and heat to boil.

Once the mixture boils for about 2 minutes, turn down the heat and simmer for another 1-2 minutes, until mixture is thicker and the sugar has has dissolved.

Now carefully pour butter-sugar mix (toffee) over the crackers, try to cover all of the crackers. Spread it out, if possible. If not, don't worry the toffee will spread in the oven. 

Bake the toffee crackers for 5 minutes. Carefully remove and allow to cool 1 minute.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the hot toffee, allow to sit until chips have melted. Take spatula and spread the melted chocolate over entire surface of toffee in an even layer. While chocolate is still soft, sprinkle with cracker crumbs, or pecan pieces, as desired.

Refrigerate the pan of toffee for 15-30 minutes. Once the chocolate has set break toffee into small uneven pieces like peanut brittle and serve. 

Store leftover toffee in an airtight container for up to a week...if it lasts that long!

Shepherd's Pie aka Cottage Pie


Shepherd's Pie is a great way to use leftovers, although we rarely wait to have leftovers to make ours.
It is said that imitation is the highest form of flattery, so whether it's a British dish or Irish, I am sharing my Americanized version here.  I've read many recipes for the dish and I've added my tweaks and tips to get the dish prepared in less time without sacrificing anything in flavor. In my hunt for ideas and methods to better the dish, I ran across a story about Donovan's Pub in Queens, NY, where the Donovan brothers have been preparing their American-Irish version for the past 46 years, it looks awesome and I would love to visit Donovan's to try it one day!
 (video link - Source: Shepherd's Pie At Donovan's Pub via CHOW by: Liza de Guia). 

Shepherd's Pie aka Cottage Pie mashed potatoes gravy vegetables
 Shepherd's Pie aka Cottage Pie
My starting point, rather than the traditional lamb (from which the dish draws its name), has always been ground sirloin. I've also heard the dish called Cottage Pie, suggesting humble beginnings as a poor man's dish. I have no problem with that as I am a fan of inexpensive and tasty!

K-Cup storage dilemma
I am attacking the pockets of clutter that plague our home in 2012! I am not just cleaning up; I am finding solutions that will eliminate these problem areas for good! (fingers crossed!)
The problem I tackled this week was actually a new (and very nice) problem to have. We received a Keurig coffee machine for Christmas, and soon realized, with all of the coffee flavors we liked to have on hand, we were losing valuable counter space! This being February, you can see there was no rush to finding a solution. 


K-cup clean-up complete
I thought about making something to house the K-cups, or using something already on hand, but nothing arose to solve
the problem. Then one day, I saw a catalog item with slide out tray designed to sit under the Keurig machine. This required no additional counter space since it fit neatly under the machine exactly where  the coffee should be. However, I was not a fan of the $25 (plus $8 shipping) price. So, my quest changed... to find a similar solution, but for less $$. 
Just this weekend, we found a plastic drawer unit, almost like the catalog item. Before victory could be proclaimed, we had to address a few issues: 1. Could it hold the weight of the machine full of water? 2. Was there a danger of the plastic getting hot and compromising the stability (or worse, causing a fire?) and 3. Would it look good?  
Victory proclaimed! We painted the clear plastic drawer black to match the coffee maker and reinforced the top with a scrap piece of concrete backer board (also painted black) The  backer board serves two purposes - it stabilizes the top and separates any heat issues between the Keurig and the plastic drawer! Problem solved for a little over $9!  Sweet! (and it holds over 30 K-cups!)

"It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"  ~Mark Twain
Mr. Twain has diagnosed my symptoms, and now I know...I have Spring Fever! Although, winter never really arrived, I am pining for Spring and it is evident in my pinning!

This picture single-handedly caused my fever to spike! This photo takes me back to childhood at my grandma's house in Florida! All of the wood had this gray weathered look and I can just see myself as a child sitting on this old log in her backyard, probably eating grapes from her arbor. I would love to have this old log in my backyard so I could sit, ponder and pray. I also love how the gray wood works as the perfect background to an explosion of flowers, that could even make a grumpy man (or woman...but most likely a man) smile.

I guess I'm a bit nostalgic as I share these pins because this photo of the flowers spilling down the hill (photo called Spilt Milk) makes me think of my Kentucky gran. She was a gardener - flowers, veggies, indoors, outside, hanging,... it didn't matter, she could make it grow! Nan would have loved this, and, had she seen this, would have likely done the same on her own hillside when I was growing up. I want to copy it myself...I have the perfect hillside! Now, I just need to find an old milk container and and a hollow log and I am ready to start my Spring! 

Are you pining for the winter that never arrived or are you ready for Spring?

Guest Bedroom: Makeover In The Making

Recently, we started a makeover project in our guest bedroom. When we moved in we removed the carpet to expose the hardwood in every room but this one. I can't remember the logic in that decision now, however, we want to unify the flooring throughout the house so that was step 1 of our makeover - remove carpet and finish hardwood floor. I'll share the results of Step 1 when it is completed.
I have been pinning to get ideas for the makeover.  I thought I would share some of my inspiring Pinterest pins to show you the design plan I'm favoring.
This is the color palette I've chosen for the room. I've always tried to keep the bedrooms a nice balance of feminine and masculine.  I think that gray and yellow is a perfect His & Her color combination.


Here is an example of the colors working together in another bedroom makeover. 
LOVE IT!!

I am thinking of adding a gloss-on-matte paint technique to the focal wall behind the headboard...possibly pulling a design from the bedding I choose.  Here are some examples of the wall treatment I am referring to.

Here are some of the bedding options that we like. The hubby and I have always gravitated to contemporary, graphic designs, especially in our bedding. I am going to use the gray/black/white colors in the bedding and yellow in the accents in the room.

Well that covers the basics for now...I will keep you posted until the BIG reveal!

What do you think of the color palette ? 
Do you like the gray/yellow combo?  I think it's restful and gender friendly, do you agree?
Which one of the bedding options do you prefer?

Apple Coffee Cake

Have you ever read a review of a movie and rushed right out to see it...and it was every bit as good as you hoped it would be? Then you understand how I felt when I read about this cake at Aunt Nubby's Kitchen. I had to make it! It is one of those easy cakes that tastes so good, your guests will think "It's probably too hard to make so I won't bother asking for the recipe."
In case you're wondering, it is great with coffee...therefore, to me, it is a coffee cake too!

Porch Parade: Favs, Pins, Menus & Tips

I said I would, and so I am... 

Welcome to the first Shady Porch Weekly recurring post, The Porch Parade.
Each Sunday, The Porch Parade will highlight four facets of my blog life in one, central location. First, I will announce the most viewed posts from the previous week's Rock 'n Share linky party. These weekly featured posts will still be added to the Rock 'N Share Gallery on Pinterest. My favorites of the week will still be featured on my Facebook page as well.

In addition to the Gallery features, I will include our Weekly Menu. I never felt like my menu choices warranted a post all their own, so it will be the second feature of The Porch Parade.

Next, I've been working on cutting clutter in 2012, so I will share my Clutter Reduction Tips during The Porch Parade. This will mean including some of my (shameful) Before & (so proud) After photos to document my de-cluttering progress! Be sure to let me know if these help (mainly so I will know I am not alone in my battle with junkiness!)

Now for The Shady Porch Weekly Menu...
Now I can give you what's on the menu for the week, but I truly cannot say what day it will be prepared. I cannot lock myself down that tight or I start to squirm....you know what I mean, right? I just have to go with what sounds good that day and run with it. Bottom line...I know that I have what I need to prepare these meals and therefore that's what's on the menu this week.

Dinner Menu for week of 2-13 

  • Cobb Salad with the Olive Garden dressing (new recipe)
  • Chicken Parmesan (new recipe)
  • Chicken Gyros
  • Homemade Pizza/Salad
  • Breakfast for Dinner
  • Italian Sausage Sandwiches
  • Salisbury Steak



My Clutter Reduction -  This weeks clutter reduction addresses a common aggravation: measuring cups/spoons. At one time I kept my measuring utensils in a drawer. The cups were held together on a ring, but once a cup was used, getting back ON the ring was unlikely and all of the loose cups cluttered the drawer. So I decided to keep my measuring cups and spoons on the ring on a magnetic hook under my range hood. Every time I wanted to use a one I would remove the ring from the hook and then the specific spoon/cup from the plastic ring. Maybe I just needed to exercise better patience, but I'll confess it really bugged me having to stop what I was doing to flip through those spoons, and thread it off the ring when all I wanted to do is cook! 

So to solve my problem...we stained 2 pieces of scrap wood, attached them to the underside of my kitchen cabinets (hidden, but perfectly positioned corner), and drove small finishing nails in a staggered pattern along the wood pieces and hung the measuring utensils individually. Now, when I want a specific spoon or cup, that is the ONLY ONE I need to mess with. (And I think they look cool.) Problem solved!

My Favorite Pinterest Pin(s) of the Week ....did you really think I could stop at just one?

The Most Common Cooking Mistakes 
by Cooking Light
This Pin caught my eye because of the title more than the picture. Most of our meals are home-cooked and I thought this Pin could help me be a better cook.  For instance, I was guilty of #23 - You pop meat straight from the fridge into the oven or onto the grill! Oops! I did not know or maybe I forgot, this causes the meat to cook unevenly! There are 40 Common Mistakes in this eyeopening post. Even if you've been cooking for ages, like me, this article is a great refresher course. 





I pinned this next pic because I am about to makeover my workspace (used for crafting, clerical, etc). My current space is a former closet and, although not unique, it is unusual so when I ran across this inspiring pic, I had no choice but to Pin it!  I will have makeover pics when I get the project completed...promise!
