Change Begins At Home

Chile & James have both nominated me for the Change Begins at Home award! To quote Melanie, the creator of the award, "This is given to bloggers who live what they preach, who try to make the changes in their own lives that they would like to see in the world."

Thank you both so much! Its gratifying to know that others appreciate what I'm sharing. I've always felt that I could have the greatest impact on society through my personal everyday actions. If I want society to change then, for me, the best course is not to yell and shout about how wrong things are, although there are days when I'd love to. Instead, I prefer to show people how things can be done and used differently and still be wonderful. The best learning opportunities come when someone comments on a particular project like the bedspread curtain or the denim quilts.

The award rules are:

1. Nominate three bloggers who epitomise "Change begins at home"

2. Link back to the person who nominated you, and link back to this post

3. When you receive the award, you may display the "Change begins at home" button on your blog.

Its still a learning process for me. Here are three bloggers who help me in that process and I would like to nominate for the Change Begins at Home Award:

Ruthie at frugal, sustainable and happy

Crystal at Vivacious Vegan

Barbara at Frugal Portland Living

I've only just discovered your blog, and I plan to nick a lot of your recipes. I just have one quick question: where did you get your bread bucket? I've had my eyes peeled for one for about a year, and I just can't seem to get my hands on one. Thanks! -Jenni

Thanks Ruthie!

Hi Jenni,
I found my bread bucket on ebay. You have to be creative about how you search for it though. Start with things like "vintage bread maker" or "manual bread maker". Once you see what categories some of these are listed under, you can do a better search.

Katie, thank you so much for the nomination. Like Ruthie said, you are my role model. I often come to your site for ideas and reading about your daily life provides me with much needed inspiration.
