making a home

spoon oil, originally uploaded by ordinarymoment.
I have been so thankful for the time this summer to take extra care of our house. There is something so pleasing about working here and there to make your home a comfortable, functional, and beautiful place. Of course chores get tiring, but doesn’t it just feel good to accomplish tasks and keep your home running smoothly? Awhile ago I came across this post on how to make your own spoon oil, a mixture of melted beeswax + walnut oil. It smells heavenly, and best of all, after rubbing the salve into your wooden utensils + cutting boards, it helps moisturize and protect so you can keep on using your kitchen tools for many years to come. I felt so old-fashioned doing this, in the best way possible. It’s always our priority around here to take the best care of what we have, to make things last. And maybe that does make me old-fashioned, but I do believe we can learn a lot from the ways of our grandparents and their parents. Live simply, take care, make it yourself! Makes life much more satisfying…
