The Good Rural Life

Hi!  Thanks for checking out my blog--this is the first time I've ever done this, so please have patience with me.  The idea behind this blog is that those of us who live in the middle of nowhere and have little money have just as much right to "the good life" as rich city folks.  With recipes, craft projects, and shopping tips I hope to share the ways that I have found to live stylishly on a tight budget with only stores like Wal Mart, Winn Dixie, Walgreens, and Dollar General (and don't forget thrift shops!) from which to purchase.  If you're hoping to see Jimmy Choo shoes or Dooney and Bourke bags, I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere, as I have never even had the opportunity to see such things in person!  This is not going to be a blog about big name brands that are so overpriced that it breaks my heart to think of how many people could be fed with the money needed to buy them.  I also hope to add a little to the "greening of America" with projects and suggestions that involve recycling and upcycling.  lol I've probably bitten off way more than I can chew here, but I'm willing to take the risk if you are :)

For me, this is about having fun and making a tiny bit of room in our crowded house! So far, I've only made a card and I think it is going to end up on lol
