Good Monday morning to ya! Thanks for joining the Barn Hop ladies, Amy from Homestead Revival, Jill from The Prairie Homestead, and myself, for another weekly round-up of linky love.

Did you have a good week last week? Get a lot done? Accomplish a goal or learn a new skill? I’d LOVE to hear what you’ve been doing to get yourself closer to self-sustainable living!! Link up, and you just might be next week’s featured guest!

Today, I’d like to share one homesteader who linked up last week with a homemade all natural bug spray…

If anyone in your family is prone to being eaten alive by those pesky warm weather bugs, Brown Thumb Mama has a great recipe for a homemade insect repellant that you might wanna check out!

Personally, I love using fresh basil to keep mosquitoes away. But that isn’t exactly something you always have on hand. I’m anxious to give this mixture a try… it would be a great item to have in my diaper bag when out and about with the kids!

Did you have a favorite post from last week?

Link up and share what’s new at your homestead!! Remember to link back to the Barn Hop in your post so your readers can see you’ve joined us here!
