1. TIP OF THE WEEK — VINEGAR:

 

1 cup of this in the “ OH MAN , I LEFT THE LAUNDRY IN THE WASHER AGAIN and it has a musty smell!” moment. I did this ran a rinse cycle & the 1 cup and it still had a little smell (I thought CRAP – FAIL!!) but I had already washed it a second time…so I dried it.  When it was all dry…NO SMELL only the fabric softener I love to smell was there!! WOOT!! ( EPIC SUCCESS) Thumbs up

 

2. NEW SERIES:

Over at my other blog Stars Rain I am starting a series called THE TREE MAN’S SHOW AND TELL. My Husband is the tree man who brings interesting things home here and there. Well THIS THING that he brought home prompted me to start the series – I NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT!! Ewwwww!

8.  Quote Tina Shared on F of L -FB page:

“By starving emotions we become humorless, rigid and stereotyped; by repressing them we become literal, reformatory and holier-than-thou; encouraged, they perfume life; discouraged, they poison it.”
