            As mothers we know                                 There is beauty in the mess.                   Smiles, mud pies, tears.

Welcome to The Buttercup Lamb! I’m Rachel and this is my itty bitty writer’s nook where I relay things I’ve learned and things I love.

Read more about why I named my blog “The Buttercup Lamb” here.

I am a wife to my husband (A), mother to my children: son (J) age 4 and daughter (L) age 1. Also fur mama to my kitty Stella (age 5). We live in a tiny home with a big backyard in the US of A.

Most of my ramblings fall into one or more categories of: food, motherhood, reflections, books, or nature.

Frugality is a part of my life and thus a part of the blog. Most things I share here have frugal roots. I love sharing bits and pieces of money saving ideas related to all the categories listed above.

My faith in Christ does flavor much of my life. So I do share some scriptures and thoughts. I don’t like to be judgemental or pushy about it. But His great love for me colors my world. I love because He loved first. (1 John 4:19)

Other things I love:

  • Foraging
  • Herbalism
  • Aromatherapy
  • Sewing
  • Natural DIYs
  • Babywearing
  • And all things Jane Austen.


This blog is a place for growth. For hope.

I began this blog in 2014 for two reasons.

1) For myself. To improve my writing. For therapy. For investment in my personal happiness. And as a means to communicate with other like-minded adults (haha).

2) For others. Because I know the struggle. Life isn’t always easy. I know this. I’ve been there. I wanted to add to the beauty and the resources that help those who look for solutions to difficult questions. 

Some examples:

  • How do I find healthy and cheap food that is both well liked and easy to make?
  • What books are worth my time?
  • How did you make it through a difficult moment (or season) of motherhood? An example=my feeding experiences when my kids were babies.)

These are just a few of the questions that I hope to answer here on The Buttercup Lamb.

Thank-you for stopping by 🙂

    1. Thank-you Kate! It might be different for a desktop computer but for me when I look at another blogger’s post, the follow button is on the lower right. After the post on the bottom, there are options to share a post. The (star-shaped) like button is directly below all the buttons for sharing the post 🙂


  1. Thank you for finding our blog and liking it. We are very happy to meet you and so is our human. She’s thrilled to find another Christian who enjoys writing. Keep up the good work and be sure to say MEOW to Stella for us.
