Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: The Penny Worthy Project


The Penny Worthy Project

Well I have to say I think the snow is starting to lose the battle against almost 12 hours of sunlight. It's melty and drippy and WARM(ish). We are still finishing a few projects in our house, like our bedroom and living room ceilings, so while we want spring to be here, we're also using the time wisely. 

I finished the rag rug from last week and it's on the floor, in use. I need to make a backing for it so it lies flat and straight. Midge the mastiff loves it and constantly lays happily on it, consequently it's always rumpled. But it's done!  

I pulled out some thrifted flannel from early this winter and cut out three pairs of pajama pants for Union. He;s grown so much nothing else fits! Three new pairs will help keep this boy in jammies for the rest of the year. One more project down.

We started to paint something, the outside of something anyway. Do you know what it is?

 Our brand new bee hives!! 

We have two and will be getting our bees in 5 weeks. Union and I took a 10 hour bee keeping class last month and we got our hives last week. Excitement!

I found an interesting book in a new to me thrift store, I'll sell it after I read it.

Mr. SirPrize got this great stamp at a thrift store too. He loves planes and stamps so this was a no brainer. 

I also found this really cute little tile, it's maybe 2x3 inches, don't know where I'll hang it yet but I love it!

I also used a recipe linked up last week for a super frugal and easy dinner. It cooked all day in the crock pot, all I had to do was come home and serve a hot dinner. You can find the recipe on Frugal in WV for Pinto Beans and Ham Hocks if you want and give it a try. 

What have you found this week? What are you eating? Feel free to link up anything that makes you insanely happy, projects accomplished, homeschool fun, frugal recipes, thrift store finds, ebay stores, flips, easy stores and the like. 

Don't forget to check out The Penny Worthy Board on Pinterest! It's getting lots of attention and I hope driving traffic to your blogs. Enjoy!


 Peace and Love--


  1. I'm so impressed you are making three pair of jammies at one time! You go girl!

  2. I wish I had thought of using thrifted flannel for jammies when my kids were little, brilliant!!

  3. I love all of your finds, especially that stamp! I cannot wait to hear all about the bee's. This is something I've always found fascinating and contemplated learning how to do. So cool - very happy for you!

  4. only 3 pairs of pajama PANTS the shirts would take forever!!

  5. The stamp is really neat! Thanks so much for hosting.

  6. Yum, pinto beans and ham hocks sounds delicious! This would be the perfect crock pot dinner.

    It's so wonderful that you will be raising bees. My father raised them when I was just a baby. I still like to buy local honey whenever I can.

  7. I looove the boat tile and am envious of your bee acquisition. Perhaps not of the piles of snow you have to endure, though. I'm in shorts and halter tops down here in Florida, it's warm and lovely. ;)


Am I talking DIRECTLY to you? Well then let me know!
