Homestead Barn Hop #87

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 87th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, along with two other fantastic homesteading gals:

Amy from Homestead Revival and Kendra from New Life on a Homestead.

Did you share any homesteading related posts on your blog this week? If so, we’d love to have you link up below! Even if you don’t have a blog, we always welcome your comments!

“I have learned the sounds my stove makes and I know without even walking into the room how fast it’s heating up, if it’s cooling down, or even if I need to add more logs.  Each stove has it’s own personality and it’s important to know what yours is saying to you.”

I thoroughly enjoyed the Wood Cookstove post that Homesteading Wife shared in last week’s Barn Hop. I don’t have a wood cookstove, yet, but it is definitely a dream of mine for “someday!”

 

Since you were this week’s featured post, feel free to display one of the following badges with pride on your page- we’ve provided 2 different color choices to pick from. (Past featured post participants- feel free to grab one of the banners as well!)

Now, on to the business of this week’s Hop!

***Please note the rule changes below!!***

Some Simple Guidelines:

1. Please remember that the Homestead Barn Hop is meant to be a place to share homesteading related encouragement and inspiring ideas specfically related to homesteading. In an effort to keep our weekly round-up clutter free, links which are not specifically homestead related, and any promotions such as giveaways, contests, carnivals, etc, will be deleted in order to maintain the integrity of the Barn Hop.

2. Please remember this is a family friendly link up. Any pictures or posts linked to the hop which aren’t appropriate for our children to view or read will also be deleted immediately. We’re pretty conservative, so we ask that you use good judgment and err on the side of caution.

3. Make sure that you link to your Barn Hop post, not your blog’s main page, so your guests won’t have any trouble finding your great tips!

4. We would also appreciate it if you would link back to the Homestead Barn Hop in the post that you share! Feel free to grab the banner at the top of this post to link back to us with.

5. Want a chance to be a “Featured Homestead” next week?

Be sure you’ve included a link to the Barn Hop button in your post! Thank you for sharing the message about the Homestead Barn Hop!

6. Occasionally there is a problem posting due to glitches in the internet or the Linky Tools. If you have difficulties posting and it does not show up immediately, please wait a little while and try re-posting (this helps avoid double posting). We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, be we do not have absolute control over the internet. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

    I have shared a YouTube video that shows an ingenious way to split firewood (#173). It uses an old tire and saves time and effort…you just have to see it! Best wishes to you and your new addition ~smile~.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be actually something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

The bath salts also acting as water softeners, so don’t be surprised if after taking a bath with vanilla lavender bath salt you will feel a bit slippery, because this is the natural effect of soft water. I discovered with satisfaction that by adding this mixture into the water, it also helps with exfoliation and those patches of calloused skin get softer.
