Bathroom Cleaner

This product is a miracle bathroom cleaner--not just for the toilet bowl. It removes lime, rust, soap scum and scuff marks from tub and tile. I highly recommend it!!!

Organization 101

I love it when someone has already done some of the work and I can benefit and change it to make it my own. Mother Earth Living has a fabulous set of organizing posts on decluttering and organizing all aspects of the home. Scroll through and see if some can benefit you!

No More Cold Winters

Look what just arrived on my doorstep yesterday morning. It will be installed in my farmhouse kitchen shortly, replacing my aging electric range. Not only will it cook my meals but it is rated and reviewed to heat my small house. No more cold winters for me. I can bank the fire at night, and upon arising a shake of the grate and a few sticks of kindling should get my morning coffee ready. It is a Baker's Choice Wood Cookstove from Stoves And More in West Virginia. Most of my baking will be on baking stones on the oven's sole and joy of all joys, there's even room for my wonderful Cuisinart roasting pan and rack, big enough to hold a 25# turkey!

Winter Dreaming

I've just about worn out the color pages of the stack of seed catalogs--hope my hollyhocks come up in Spring.
