Queen of your Castle

In a bee’s world, while honey is the cents, royal jelly is definitely the dollars. It’s a special secretion needed to create the queen bee. So, while the lowly soldier bees toil day and night, with no choice but to expend all their precious jelly in order to make their hive happy, in this world we’re fortunate enough to have learned a few things (hopefully!) and know that we can be queens in our own beautiful castles without having to squander all that extravagant ‘royal jelly’.
Follow me as I share with you some of the thrifty hints and tricks I’ve used so far in creating my hive – queen intact!

Now here are some pretty pictures…


  1. Lovely photos! I can’t wait to see how your blog evolves. Good luck, and thanks for inviting me over!

  2. I’m so excited to have you as a follower! I think your blog was the first one I stumbled across some six or so months back when I was googling “grain sacks”. I saw your hand painted framed version and then proceeded to read all of your posts! You definitely helped inspire the creation of my own blog. THANK YOU!!!

    What the heck is “passing open windows”? Is it a magazine or a website? I think I might love it! Can you e-mail me more info or post it on my blog pretty please? http://www.4sweetpeasinapod.blogspot.com,
