Easy to make Porch Urns

Easy to make Porch Urns


These are my two go-to urns.

To add a bit of d├ęcor to my deck, I rely on these urns that I was lucky to be given when a friend was cleaning out her shed.I use them  for every season. I always change them up for winter, fall & summer.

I’m always searching for faux flowers at dollar stores. Some are quite real looking. I love the fact that they’re cheap. Another great frugal idea I do is to add at least one real potted plant to each urn.

I love solar lights. They are inexpensive & are great for landscaping. I just had to add one to each urn for a nice evening glow.

Super-Easy to-make-Vegan Whole Wheat Bread

Vegan store-bought bread can be pricey….this type of bread , that I usually see at the grocery store, is $5.00 and up a loaf ! Most of these loaves are small as well. My daughter Stephanie ,  found this great recipe that she has made over and over again. My daughter is vegan so this bread is one of her favorites.

Easy & great tasting. Give it a try.

2 tsp. sea salt

4 Tbsp. brown sugar

2 tsp. yeast

2 Tbsp. coconut oil (warmed in microwave to liquid form)

14 ounces water


In bowl, pour flour, salt, sugar and yeast. Stir until combined.

Create hole in middle and add water. Now add oil. stir until a tacky dough forms.

Knead dough for 10 minutes on floured surface.

Place in to oiled bowl and let sit for 1 hour.

Punch dough down and knead for a few more minutes so the air releases.

After 20 minutes divide dough into 8 pieces.

Flip over and cook for another minute. Hold down spatula if needed to flatten.
