Bathroom ReDo

Every once in awhile I get the urge to redecorate a room in the house. This time it was the bathroom! cost under $5.00( for some new knobs)! Everything else I already had at home.

Here are the knobs I got at Hobby Lobby! Which by the way, are ALWAYS 50% off!

 Love this crate from a recent auction we went to. Perfect for holding our washcloths and hand towels! I used part of a pallet to make this bath sign.

The other half of this piece of wood I used to make a towel holder from.

My awesome husband helped me make an aqua mason jar soap dispenser. I also painted some antique letter blocks white and it spells out "BATH".

Here is the final after!

Grandma's Homemade Apple Pie

Last weekend Derrick & I took a trip to the farmer's market and got some apples! We canned some to have over winter......

And I also decided to make one of my Grandma's homemade apple pies! YUM!!

- 2 cups flour
- 3/4 cup shortening
- 1 tsp. salt
-6 Tbs ICE water

Combine flour, shortening and salt. Work with your hands to mix all together. Add ICE water. Roll into 2 crusts (one for bottom and one for top) Place bottom crust in pan.

-1 quart apples
-2 Tbs flour
-1tsp cinnamon
-1 cup sugar

Mix all together and pour pie filling on top of bottom crust. Dab pats of butter on top of apples. Place 2nd crust on top. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon and make a few slits on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn down to 350 degrees until done. Pie crust should be light brown.

Add some ice cream on top and enjoy!!
