Feel free to contact me at any time. I love hearing reader comments, suggestions and just a friendly hello every now and then. :)

Now that we know how to get around, let’s see what we will find in each category!

Life on the Prairie:

Here you will find the daily happenings around my little life on the  prairie including my life as a military wife, homemaker, writer and self-proclaimed counselor 😉  with occasional commentaries, bible verses and devotions, the reading meeting book club and pretty much a hodge podge of “everything else.”

We love crafting at Huckleberry Prairie… and you find a shortage of it on The Homestead!

Good food creates one happy home. :)

Boots and Bonnets

Here you will find Prairie fashion inspiration, beauty ideas and tips. From the latest styles and products to delightful accessories and make up. Prairie girls are feminine and fashionable…but also pride themselves on finding a good deal. Here on the prairie, we love to thrift, to bargain hunt and to find creative ways to be all dolled up.

Pretty Up!

The Shop

This is the General Store of Huckleberry Prairie. Here you will find all sorts of goodies… from handmade items to recommended reading. Each item is conveniently linked for you directly to the site that is selling it, be it Etsy, Amazon or directly from the product’s site. We hunt around the internet finding the cutest items and best prices to display in The Shop, so you don’t have to.
