Pins that work!


I am not into Pintrest! Sad I know.
I do love a good hint or tip!
Here are some I have tired and have worked!
-Someone at work burnt something thing to death in the microwave
and left it to stink all weekend (rude). It is fowl.
Lemon in a bowl of water turned on for a minute
or two works wonders! (I should know I have tired everything!
-WD40 and a magic eraser and backing soda on
super duper cloudy head lights... makes them good as new!
-Clean you oven door grossness w/ cooking spray and a rag.
I warmed the oven a bit to make it glide off!!
What have you tried and know works?

industrial lighting, steampunk, Edison Bulb

Every time I go get my oil changed they suggest
I get my headlights de fogged.

 This last time I nodded and asked how much it cost

36.00 the kid replied. I coughed and said 36 bucks is a lot of money
to me.  The kid looked at me like I was from another planet.
That night I saw a at home solution. I tried the tooth paste
idea w/ no result in the past.

This time I used a magic eraser, baking soda and WD-40.
Worked like a charm and the world is bright and new again!!
You can thank me later!

Yesterday evening after a happy joy filled life.
One of my best friends went on to see her family and
her maker on the other side. The world will never be
the same, nor will I!

My minds eye!

Today I went to a Ware House Sale
I had heard about on Face Book.
It was wild! I don't scrap book,
but I love creative projects! Oh and
I love that most stuff was less then a dollar!!
It was a bit overwhelming. Women were filling bags
for 50.00's a bag and it was WILD! It was like Bath and
Body over load. I hurried and paid and left w/ my life!
Next Year I'll give a heads up before the event!!


Thee I Adore

Silhouette Child & Dog #1 Unmounted Clear Polymer Stamp
My Nephew is almost 2.5 years old.
He loves to pretend. He is very verbal,
Has a quick wit and a great memory.
Today when I asked him for a hug he
reassured me that he would hug me later.
Later he jumped up on me and I picked him
up he wiggled a lot and hopped down.
He told me he was a very "wiggly" puppy and
it is hard to hold one to me!! Tis true.
He asked me to walk him to the park w/ a
leash hooked to the back of his shirt. I did!
The neighbors talked to my puppy
 and had him do tricks on the way.
1/2 way to the park Theodore
pointed out the yellow leaves
and told me
"The leaves turn yellow, fall to the ground and
then it will be winter time
w/ lots of snow and we can sled!"
While walking home from
 the park Theodore called me "Daddy"!
I said "I am not daddy" giggling"
 He looked at me for a minute and said
w/ a totally straight face. "Did I call you Elba?" (My sister)
"I am sorry I didn't mean to call you Elba!!"
We stopped a few more times so that
Theodore the dog could morph into Theodore
the Grasshopper!  He would stand
right at my feet look me in
the eye and Jump Jump Jump,
Then he'd go back to being a dog!
Upon arriving home the doggy drank a bowl of water
on the floor and then got his nails clipped!
We all know doggies need their nails clipped!
A chore that needed to be done but is hated! Little boy's hate to
have their nails trimmed but dog's do it well!
What a happy day! I was reminded of the joy of
Childhood!, That little baby boys pee on their
diaper changers. Sir Topham Hatt is still
alive and well in a train station in England.
A ten cent  used coloring book can make a
small boy exclaim "OH MY!"
A box of mommy's nursing pads
can be a very hard concept to grasp, when
nursing pads and mouse traps sound the same to tiny ears.
Spit up happens when a tiny tummy is filled
to the brim w/ warm milk!
Happy Fall!!

Peach Days 2014

*Peach Days isn't fun w/ out kids.
When I was a child Peach Days was like Christmas!
*Peach Days is hot and crowded.
*I see lots of people I know and even some I wish I didn't!
*I made my free floral arrangement. Love!
*I told my nephew a carousal was coming by my house.
He said "You should ride it Auntie!"
I didn't!
Happy Peach Days!


When I was maybe about seven, I got
a little wooden money bank for Christmas.
It was very cute and had a tiny key.
I loved that bank and thought about
it often even a few month ago I was thinking about it!
Imagine my surprise when I found my
bank's twin for seventy five cents!!
It was LOVE at first sight!
My little bank was Hansel and Gretel,
but my word it looked a lot like The Little Rd Ridding Hood
I found. My mind and mostly lost the details of my bank
but upon seeing this lovely it all came back to me.

Today while holding my 3 day old darling teeny tiny
nephew I asked his brother Theodore (2) to
hand me a magazine. He kindly gave me
a magazine and then looked at me strangely.
When I opened it to look at Theodore commented
 "Auntie he (the baby) can't read!"

Me: Yeah I think it is a good song!
D: We'll don't you think it is a sad song? A girl being on fire!
Me: *Laughing my head off* No it means she is awesome,
or cool or really great!! She isn't really on fire!!!
D: UuuOh!
