Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Hop for August 14, 2012—the food carnival for and about food that not only nourishes our bodies, but our souls!
Am I the only one who feels like it is the middle of August and somebody turned up the activity meeter to full-tilt? Oy! This return to busier schedules has me focused on practical resources, which is why the following highlights from last week caught my eye. Each one is a make-at-home solution for common things we buy saving a few pennies for the long list of back-to-school items we need.
Homemade Ketchup by Happy in Dole Valley
Amazing Homemade Glass Cleaner by Whole New Mom
Six Natural Air Fresheners by Our Homemade Happiness
