Welcome to Somerset Lane!

Hi everyone!

My name is Bette.  You might remember me from Frugal Mom x3, where I was blogging about all sorts of stuff.

With reaching a milestone birthday (the big 4-0), and decided I needed to make some changes in my life.  Nothing monumental, but one of them was to change my blog name.  Stop laughing (I can hear you)!  My reason, for changing my blog name (from Frugal Mom x3) was because I was never really in love with it; however, I didn't want to delete it, because there are several posts that I love and are close to my heart (especially the ones about my father-in-law and my kids). So I thought, I should start a new one... Somerset Lane, to chronicle my 40's.

What is Somerset Lane?

Somerset Lane, is about me, my family and living a simple, organized, green, and frugal life. (yes, there is that word again.)

We are a family of 5 living in an older home/neighbourhood, trying to make the best of our one-income dollar. I call this house the money-pit. Other than the frame of the house, I think we've had to re-do everything and we're still going! (Big plans for 2012; but very little money!)

On my  new blog I will be sharing about living a simple life.  Saying "No" to the things that don't serve my family and "yes" to the things that matter. 

Capturing all of those moments that take your breath away.

I will share about my organizing and  decorating projects, as I do them.

I will share how I do my part to save the planet, and live a "greener" lifestyle.

And yes, all the above will be done frugally.  Frugality is in my blood, and I couldn't change even if I tried.


And I will share what about whatever else catches my fancy.


I'm not perfect and nor do I have a perfect life, and if I come across as sounding like that, let me know, and I'll quickly send you some pictures about my not-so perfect life.

P.S. - So I don't drive myself insane over the Christmas holidays I'm going to officially start blogging on Somerset Lane on January 1, 2012.  See you soon!
