Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!


Here in East Tennessee we are starting to see some lovely Fall color! I guess it took the chilly nights that we’ve had!

Nights make me think of the time change! How are you doing with that?

I may be in the minority, but I actually like the nights coming earlier and waking up with some light!

I thought I’d share a tree picture. This one was so pretty, and then it got cut down for one of my husband’s customers. I feel like it was a glorious fall!

Golden Hickory click to see it fall!  

Make sure to look around at the colors! Soon it will be Winter, so soak it all in now!


Also, keep your eyes open on the blog hop! There are new people coming by, and they have some great ideas to share!

Happy hopping!

Now on to the Hop

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
