Soothing Oatmeal Herbal Milk Bath

I don't know about you but I have extremely dry skin this time of the year.  It seems that no amount of lotion can help it alone.  A good soak in a soothing bath can relax and help that itchy skin.
You don't have to add all of the ingredients that I've added today but any combination should work
as long as you keep the oatmeal in it.  You can even turn the oatmeal into a powder alone and that has healing, soothing properties.  Join me today for a simple to make soak.

The Blue Bowl Among Other Things

I found this beautiful blue bowl not long ago and didn't know what if anything I would put into it.  It seemed to be a good fit in the new blue accent color of my living room.  You remember the trunk and throw posts recently this is another of the simple style of our room.  Join me won't you.

Pom Pom Throw and Bird Nests

It is cold outside, freezing as we speak!  Snow and Ice hammering the Southeast for sure.  I hope if you're able to that you stay inside where it is warm and cozy.  
Today I share this wonderfully soft Throw and other tiny things in the living room.  

Our New Trunk

I ventured out last week and found this really cute trunk.  Temporarily I am trying it out in the living room as a coffee table, although not sure if that is where it will stay.  Don't you just love the color?  I sure do and that is what sold me on it.

Bed Bugs: The Horror and Tips!

The picture on the left was of one on my pillow in the hotel room.
Do you see the dark coloring inside him?  Yes, that is my blood.
We killed more than one.

I've been debating posting on this topic for quite awhile.  There is a stigma that surrounds the topic of Bed Bugs.  You know the fact that people should they find out you've been bitten by them somehow you've brought them home with you.  Worse yet, maybe, you brought them to your hotel room yourself .  You know you didn't but people may think that.  Yes they do get into hotels, businesses, even movie theaters, homes from somewhere, somebody brought them in.
The trouble is that unsuspecting individuals such as myself and others know little to nothing about them.  I don't want you to be in the dark like we were if you are ever faced with the situation.
Today I share information about them and my very personal nightmare with "Bed Bugs".

Ohuhu Garden Path Lights: Product Review

Today I share a review of these path lights from Ohuhu.  I've had them for quite a while but you may know that  South Carolina has been plagued with extremely wet weather.  I had to wait for the lawn to dry out enough to put the lights in.

Cleaning Closets Minimizing Mess

Cleared, vacuumed and ready to refill

What do you do when you need to clean out every closet and drawer you own?  You have to start somewhere.  Today I share a linen closet, a re-purpose for grandmother's old wardrobe, filling a chest of drawers with more garments using less space.  Join me won't you.

How Much Fun Can You Have With A Box?

Happy New Year to All!
May your year be filled with Joy, Kindness and Thankfulness!
Starting off the new year with a dose of cuteness!

It is still amazing to see the fun children have with a cardboard box.
I gave them my huge box of Crayola crayons to play with.
They know how "Mimi" is about her big box of crayons.
I heard  "Lil Brainiac" say we have to keep those safe.
They are so adorable.
