Packing for a week or more for a vacation in Europe using only a carry-on can be done!
We will be flying Ryanair once we get to Spain and they have very strict (and small) luggage requirements. You can have one free carry-on that is no larger than 21.6 x 15.74 x 7.87 inches including wheels and handles so think child size suitcase.
Sometimes, when you travel, you only have a short period of time to be in one place. The last time I was in Barcelona, I only had one day to explore. This means I never slowed down but I did get to see a lot considering the amount of time I was there.
I will be leaving next week for another trip to Europe and will have 24 hours to spend in Barcelona. There are some of the places I think you should see if you have time…make a list, map it out, and GO!
This Friday’s Farmhouse comes from LOVE GROWS WILD. You can tell by the photos below that she has an amazingly beautiful farmhouse. You will find tons of great decorating ideas on her blog and be sure to check out her current post with great fall decorating ideas for your home.
I just ran across this 3 ingredient homemade dish tablets that I just had to share. This is one of the best recipes I have seen and can’t wait to give it a try. If you want to grab the recipe, you can get it HERE at Moms 4 Real.
This is my beautiful speckled Sussex hen. I had never owned sussex chickens until she came along. She is a sweet gentle hen with a lot of personality. I plan to add several more to my growing flock.
I was researching Sussex chickens when I came across these Babydoll Southdown Sheep of Coonamessett Farm. How could I not share my new found love of these adorable sheep?
Adult Baby Dolls are 24 inches or less at the shoulder without wool; however many are in the 18 to 22 inch range. White is the predominant color, but there are a few blacks.
The little Southdowns have qualities that endear them to all who see them. They are gentle and quiet sheep. Having been bred for so many years to be tolerant of small areas, they do not require a large pasture. They have strong flocking instincts and do not do well as singles ; therefore they are usually sold in pairs. They do well with other non-aggressive livestock and offer diversity to any breeding program.
Neither sex has horns and the rams are not aggressive. They do not wander or bother fences nor do they attempt to jump them.
You can find out more information about these cuties HERE.
This is one of those projects that I have wanted to do but put off forever. I have had the bookcase for about 12 years and it has been painted several colors over the years. I looked for cheap doors or doors that I could recycle to use but never found any. I decided to drive to Lowes and purchase some lumber. I knew I wanted the doors to have a farmhouse look since I live in a little farmhouse.
I have never made any type doors and I am sure there are better ways to do it than the way I did. I have no idea if you are even supposed to make doors this way…it’s just the way I made mine and it’s an easy way to make them. They open and close and fit together perfectly so I’m good with that.
Today’s farmhouse tour comes from Kathleen at Faded Charm. She says that her passions are decorating and gardening which you can clearly see on her blog. Her home is beautifully decorated in a neutral palette and filled with lovely weathered and worn items.
I have given you a sneak peak below of her home. Once you see these photos, you will want to visit her blog where you not only get to see her home tours, but also her gardens.
