Autumn Giveaway and Clever Chicks Blog Hop #4

Meet one of my two,newest flock members. (White Crested, Black Polish chick)
 What a great blog hop we had last week, thank you to all who participated, making it diverse, educational and interesting! Let's take a look at this week's Clever Chicks Featured Blogs. With so many wonderful contributions, it was difficult to limit the number of favorites from the Clever Chicks Blog Hop #3, but I did manage to narrow it down to three.

This clever and pretty, wax-free candle Orange Peel Candle tutorial was shared by Eliza, author of  Eliza K Prints. Would you believe it's made with only an orange peel and oil?

From MJ, of MJ's Kitchen, comes this tempting recipe for Capellini with lemon, garlic and egg. I can't wait to try it using über-fresh eggs from my backyard chickens! Within MJ's post is her preserved lemon tutorial that you will not want to miss. I wasted no time making a batch myself.

Mary and Jim at "The Farm" Old World Garden Farms shared their DIY instructions for a floating ledge shelf using up-cycled wood pallets. Within that post is their pallet deconstruction tutorial (apparently the right tools are everything).

  10. Hi Kathy:

    I finally made it over here, thanks for the invitation! My post is #42, which is about creative uses for wood pallets (including goat fencing!). Unfortunately, I put my own name instead of my blog post's title, groan :-(. I'll try to get it right next time, lol.
