More Giveaways!!


These are my babies!!  Cute

These are the shelves I'm painting

I have two of these chairs and this one needs a lot more black paint.  A little paint sure changes the chair or just about anything.
Did I tell you I have some tomato's on the plants?  Ok, I'll take some photos for later and some of the things blooming.
Have a great day!!

It's Friday and I took the day off!  Right now it's very early in the morning and of course I'm on the Internet.  I think that the quilters will enjoy this video on You Tube

This is my week-end to get all those yard sale items to my friend.  It's a BIG chore but it will be so much better when it's done.  Does everyone feel like that?

I hope to finish the shelf painting and to get my other chair for the front porch painted.  Do I have a sneak peek?  Okay, this is all upside down!  Just wanted to make sure you're awake!! :)

Give Away at Blogs

Give Aways!
I hope we win!  Does anyone who reads/visit my blog find the links helpful? 
It's very hot here today, I mowed the grass and had to have a lot of water/blog breaks.  It's done and I can now work on setting up a garage sale with a friend at her house.  Then in the fall I want to go thru and have one at my house.  It's time to get things out of here?  Do you feel like that?  I watch the Hoarder show and I now want less!!  Scary!  One photo to share a little snippet of an old old quilt.  I like a photo.
Have a great day, I'm going to shower and get ready for work.

Cake Frosting or Facial?

Does this look like frosting?  I can assure you that it smells wonderful, it's creamy and you just want to lick the spoon!  But it's not frosting believe it or not this is a facial that you mix up with ingredients from your kitchen.  There are times that I just have to try something and I did do this on Sunday.  It smell so good and you have to walk or sit around with this on your face and let it dry.  Then you rinse it off just like any other facial.  I have to say here and now that my skin felt so good, so soft and nourished after I did this.  WOW!  Just make sure that you don't have anyone coming over because they will think you are running around with chocolate frosting on your face!!!!
I didn't make this up as I found it on the most interesting blog that is on a farm with lots of animals.  I love animals and stories about them.  She even put a photo of herself on her blog but I don't dare.  I want you to come back again!!!!!!
Go over to
Read through this blog as she is so entertaining!  I love her stories and the recipe for this facial is on her blog.  I didn't put it in a blender but just stirred it up but then I didn't use the oatmeal part.  I do think it's good stuff.
One of the things I've made also is my own laundry soap but I really could use some Fels bar soap.  Does anyone have it in their store?  I'll gladly pay for it and the shipping with a bonus.  I can't find it here.
I use my own cleaners now and find they work better than the store bought and they are good for the environment.  This is coming from a person that used all the store stuff I could find!  Clean House the BBC show has changed a lot of my habits.  Anyone else like this show? 
Okay, sorry I only have one photo for today but the chocolate facial makes up for it and it is edible.  Look at the ingredient list.  I wonder what else is hiding in my kitchen? 
Oh, before I go - have you ever wanted to use up your left over wine?  Go here and learn how to make vinegar

Thoughts on a Sunday

What is this?  Of course you know that it's strips of Batiks but this is a Chinese Coin quilt top that I started a couple of years ago and then became distracted.  I found it this morning and have been doing some sewing on it.  Long long way to go but it's eye candy for my eyes as I look at it.This is a mug that a friend gave to me.  Oh ---- I think it's a cat face!! :)
This is what I dream about!  I want to go to Ireland and to the UK!!  Everyone knows and passes on their books or I find them used sometime.  There are so many areas that I want to go to in these two countries!!  I hope to meet some of the people that have blogs, go to car boot sales, markets and just see everything!!  I want to ride on the trains.  Do you know that I have never ridden on a big train!  Just the amusement park ones.  Where are you dreaming of going?

Thought it would be nice to share this cute picture.  One of my friends sent it to me.  I love cats you know!
