I'm working on some new items. This is a Buttercream & Snickerdoodle scented Bath Bomb cupcake. I'm still doing some experimenting & can't wait to "test" it!! I'm also working on Bath Melts - solid bath oils. New things should be in my etsy store, soon.

The other day I was at my mother-in-law's house. She told me to go through her buttons and take whatever I wanted. OK!!! I can do that! :)

Shades of Inspiration - Rust

For this week's challenge I headed to the back yard garden. This is another of a long list of items that has made its way home from our local dump (thank to my husband!) Apparently it was too rusted for someone - just perfect for the Shades of Inspiration Challenge this week. :)

A Trip to Mackinac

This past week my family and I were able to spend some time in Mackinaw City & on Mackinac Island. What a fun, relaxing time enjoying the gorgeous sights. The flowers on the island were unbelievable!!! So, so pretty.
We did lots and lots of walking. As we walked, what should I see, but a yard sale!!! A yard sale on Mackinac Island??? It was awesome...lots of wicker furniture, etc. The problem was, how to get anything off of the island. (Not to mention getting it home in the tiny car that we were in.)I settled on this one enamelware pan. When I asked how much it was, the answer was, "Those were all a dime." THOSE, ALL???? That implied that there were more at one time. I snatched the one and only that I could find. So does anyone know anything about Lisk enamelware?
On our final day there, my kids were able to go parasailing. It was a great trip, lots of fun, very relaxing!!!
