A Couple Blue Backdrops

Birds on Blue from Emmaline Bride


When I first saw this I thought it was white stencil flowers or scrolls on the blue stripes. I took a longer look and found it was simply shadow and sunshine from the trees. 
I'm sorry that I can't find this site - the link I saved was somehow broken - sorry if it is my fault - I'll keep my eyes open for where I found it and come back and give the correct source.

Efforts ... Direction

Image from HERE

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

One teacher shared the following analogy: “I have learned a great lesson from the letters of the alphabet. … We can repeat them frontwards or backwards, but when we do they have little meaning because they have not been put together with purpose and direction. When we put them together with real purpose and direction the result is sacred hymns, the scriptures, great poetry and prose, wonderful songs, and so on. As it is in the letters of the alphabet, so it is in our lives. … Action is important, but we need to have the right kind of action—purposeful action
(William H. Bennett, in Conference Report, Tonga Area Conference 1976, 15).

Goo Be Gone, and ...

I found this idea at Krafty Kat

Imagine that! 
She also lists 20 other uses for Baby Oil for too.
I did used to use it for my eye makeup remover many years ago, but eventually I decided that I didn't like the oily feel it seemed to leave in my eyes.

I keep adhesive remover in my kitchen drawer for the stickers and labels I want to remove, they are the pads we get from Apria (health care supplies) for hubbies Hickman Line dressing removal.

Those adhesive removers, nice as they are, don't work as well as some others I have found - that's why they are tucked under the sink for non-skin use. Oh, they work nice for taking the leftover band aid sticky off the skin, but not removing the large dressing over a Hickman Line.

 I know I spend too much on others I do like, (shhh! don't tell hubby, cause he won't like to know they are more expensive and he might make me stop) but at least it helps take that bandage off his skin without as much discomfort (I can tell ... brave as he is ... it's not a big difference, but there is one - shhh! don't tell him that either). 

I wonder what the doctors would say if I started using Baby Oil to remove the dressing/bandage?


Here is a great cleanser I found from Food.com
Tub and Shower Magic
We tried this cleanser and liked it - there is a *strong smell as you work with it but it works great -  just open a window ... it's worth it! 
*We did use it in two bathrooms at the same end of the house, at the same time, so we were pretty much asking for it.


Years ago ... many years ago ... in a different home ... we needed a strong cleanser to help us clean up a bathroom that just wouldn't smell clean no matter what cleanser I used.  I found a cleanser recipe in a magazine and tried it.  I was amazed at the difference.  I have kept that recipe and used it on occasion.  I share with you today.

1/2 cup plain ammonia
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 TB. baking soda
2 quarts warm water


Isn't vinegar a wonderful thing?  It works wonders on hard water stains and does so much more.  Just don't use it to try to remove color on anything, because it sets in color - like with Easter Egg dye.
I used to mix it with some water and pour it over my hair just after I washed it, to help remove any soap scum.  Of course this wasn't daily, but on occasion, especially the day before a perm.

I found a web site that has a long list of uses for Vinegar - one I want to remember - Vinegar Tips - maybe you'll find it interesting too.  Be sure to click on each page - there are many ideas for each - garden, cleaning, laundry, health, automotive, pets, cooking.

It's Party Time Again

Whatever the occasion, party time is a great time.  
No matter how many times we see a great party, there is still another great one out there.


A great night time party can be found at The Purple Pug
Of course I love the tent or canopy and the glow in the dark things are great.


I have not seen this done, but if I do a night time party I wanna remember to try glow sticks in balloons like this I found on google search.  Or maybe little LED lights would work.


The Hungry Catepillar made of balloons from HERE


Speaking of a hungry catepillar - check out Hello Naomi for her cute party.
