Popular Reading on the Revelings

My little blog will turn 4 years old this coming August.   I’ve been doing some semi-serious writing in that amount of time.  Writing has been my go to place for telling my family stories, and sharing thoughts, wishes and advice.  Looking back I decided it was time to reminisce about some of my most popular posts here on my revelings.   Some posts are funny, some are serious, and others just make me glad I’m sharing my life stories.



Denim Oh Beautiful Denim – My love for denim, wearing denim and making things from denim shines through in this story.



The Garden Leaves are Everywhere – My love of gardening and plants always leads me to share stories during the summer about my gardening experiences.



 Life According to Evan –  A few pictures and tales About Evan’s photography skills.  This post led to my Evanisms page.


Taco Salad for a Crowd – This is one of my family’s favorite go to summer recipes.  So easy to prepare, and so tasty too!

That Old Dining Room Table – My very first Revelings story.  This post has a lot of family history and remains one of my personal favorites.  Funny thing about this post I did not have any pictures posted with it.

This story marks my 260th blog post!  Wow. My hope is to continue my writing and story sharing, and I’d love it if you come along and join me for my Revelings adventure.  Enjoy some reading time, friends.  We are travelling home today, and I’m looking forward to getting back to my writing desk tomorrow.  Here’s to starting off your week with lots of positivity and some good family time.  Happy trails everyone.

I was looking for a great way to hem my grandson’s jeans and found this post. Great tips for hemming jeans. Take a look!

Denim oh Beautiful Denim

Denim is a staple in our lives, well in my life for sure.  Just like a great cup of coffee, or crawling out of bed in the morning to find out what the headlines of the day are.  The thought of denim always brings my thoughts around to how prominent denim is in our everyday lives.  Now if you have to wear a uniform to work, or have a specific dress code you appreciate jumping into your denim all the more right after a long day at work.

Remember in the 70’s when you would throw patches on your favorite jeans to keep them alive, and now, well maybe not right now, it’s common to buy your jeans with the holes already in them, so now you pay for the holes??

I had a pair of jeans in high school, and I’m sure they were probably bell bottoms, that got patched and patched and patched, and I knew how to sew, so I just kept patching them.  So comfy.

And I have had a few denim shirt jackets over the years that  could just be worn over anything at all.  Love my denim.

Now I have to ask are you a fan of Levi’s or Wrangler? Remember Levi’s was there first, and I’m sure there are lots of fans of other brands of denim out there these days.

Do you know what a Canadian Tuxedo is?  This is an urban coined phrase for an outfit that includes a denim jacket and jeans, and if you dare a denim shirt under the jacket.  Yippee.

Over the years I’ve made the denim purses where you cut off the top half of the jeans and have instant pockets.  Then there were denim hats, denim and flannel baby blankets.  It’s all been so much fun.  I don’t think I ever had any denim shoes, I’ll have to work on that one.

Denim is one of those timeless pieces of clothing that will never go away styles will change, the size you wear might change (oi!), but you will always own some piece of clothing that is denim.  Denim is like classic rock it will always be an amazing part of your life.

What’s your favorite denim garb?

Sharing this post from my archives, just like the denim described above, it’s timeless.
