Vintage Map Tray

 Recycling to me also means saving those thrift store finds.  Here I created a vintage map tray from a thrift store tray plus an old book of railroad maps.  The results are an amazing and classic serving tray that can be used year round.  If you have missed any of our 15 minute crafts this week, be sure to catch up with day 1.  You can scroll down and see today’s Craft Lightning posts from our partners at the bottom of this post as well.  Now lets get crafty!

How to Sew Cafe Style Curtains

 I thought I would share with y’all my tutorial on how to sew cafe style curtains.  I revealed these curtains last week in my rustic farmhouse kitchen post.  I really love cafe style curtains in here because they block more light to protect our wood floors while still allowing us to see out at all times.  The kitchen faces the back of the house and I love the light streaming in at all times of the day.  However they really don’t make these style curtains for big windows.  Well y’all can make custom sized cafe style curtains for yourself easily!

Jen Goode is back this month y’all with a free printable meal plan to help you get organized.  Read below to learn more and print your own.  Be sure to visit 100 Directions to see more from Jen! 

Getting in organized in the kitchen seems to be simple enough, if you have all the containers and the cabinet space. What about organized in the use of the kitchen? Do you stock your fridge and just make things up as you go, or do you plan your meals ahead? I have not been a meal planner, I never know what I’m going to be hungry for. This year I’ve decided we are going to save money and the first place to check costs is in our grocery bill. So getting organized with our meals and our meal plan is pretty important.
