DIY LAUNDRY POWDER PODS



This DIY is for making your already homemade laundry soap powder into a pod/cube so it is more convenient.  If you are one that already makes your powdered laundry soap then this is just a little extra step that really does help if you are in a hurry.  If you are one who has contemplated making your own money saving, fantastic cleaning Laundry Soap Powder then hit this link for all of the mixtures I use here at Hibiscus House.  It is easy and the $ Savings are fantastic!

I hesitated making this post that has sat in my drafts for awhile, but decided to go ahead and post.  WARNING: THIS PRODUCT IS NOT EDIBLE!  Who in the world thought that such a warning would have to be put on a cleaning product? 

BEAUTY & FASHION SAVING TIPS



I have always said that the best look is the most simple one.  Getting older I still stand by that idea.  Simple is better.  Sometimes, especially with allergies we have tell tale signs that give us away.  Some signs may be waking up with very dark under eye circles.  

Sometimes I don't sleep well and am a night owl so it shows in the face.  If I've been extremely busy or stressed it shows.  

All of these things make a difference in how we look.  Eat well balanced meals, get plenty of rest, try to reduce stress where possible and do make the time to pamper yourself. (I should do more of this myself.)

Boys We Have A New MaryJane'sFarm Picnic Quilt



Most of you have probably heard of Mary Jane's Farm.  She is a wonderful inspiration to all FarmGirls.  As a matter of fact I am one of them and thoroughly enjoy that fact!  We FarmGirls are a varied group.  We have some with hundreds of acres to no acreage, and yet grow even from a bucket on a balcony..  That's right we also have FarmGirls at heart.  That's all it takes, and that is how we bond with our love of growing things.

The boys love picnics with 'Mimi' and I love them too!  It was a joy to learn I'd won one of her beautiful handcrafted quilts "Busy Bee Quilts, Le Picnic".  I told the boys it was picnic time!

THE END OF WORLD WAR II AND COMING HOME AS TOLD BY MR WHEELER



"Y'all gonna spend the night here and in the morning y'all gonna see the sun rise behind you and the Statue of Liberty in front." This is what the officer told the soldiers on the ship coming into New York.

How wonderful it must have been to these two weary World War II soldiers.  They had been trying to get home for months from overseas.

Today's story is of the end of the war. Daddy & Jimmie Wheeler's Coming Home!
