Aging an Old Milk Can

A few weeks ago when we were in Oregon, we went to one of my favorite stores in Eugene.  Barb, from Treasures From the Heart was having a "Junque in the Trunk Sale" with lots of vendors.  What perfect timing!  Ok, we weren't planning to go to Eugene until the next day, but I didn't want to miss her sale, so we changed our plans.  :)

I always find great things at her store.  I need to walk around several times so I don't miss anything!
One of the fun things I found at the sale was this milk can.  The couple who was selling it had worked hard to clean it up and paint this very cute cow on it.  I loved it, but it was a little too bright for me.
Enter some handy-dandy Minwax Provincial stain and the brightness was toned down.

I put a couple of coats on with a foam brush, then lightly wiped it off with an old sheet.  I let it dry (not hard in our 100+ degree heat the past several days!)  I then put a coat of clear flat spray on it.  And now I love it in the house.
Thank you for your visit!

Clothe Washer

Let's talk about power tools in Your Laundry Room with few facts busting the myth that your clothes are clean.

Before arriving in the laundry, we will talk briefly of your water heater. Water heaters larger than our home after our furnace/AIR CONDITIONING energy expenditure. If we follow the energy-saving tips, you will make a big difference in our electric or gas bill. Do you know the temperature of the hot water? Taking into account the balance between these boiling hot shower and your wallet; low temperature, less money needed for heat. 120-125 Degrees is considered to be standard, you could probably get away with it connected to 115 degrees (there is an option in the camera-see the manual). Where is Your water heater? If you are in a basement, consider isolation if it doesn't already exist is not isolated. Install a timer. Why spend the money to have hot water available all day if you don't use? Finally, so if your home has ' instant ' hot water flowing constantly, need water available at all times the circulation pump turns off, or put a timer on this pump. Direct hot water is a great convenience, but we ended up paying for the convenience.

Now for the laundry room. Water heaters, we talked about just plays an important role here too-water heaters are 80% of the energy used for washing clothes! If you are a reader of Consumer Reports, know you've tried detergent in hot water-hot and cold and found no difference in strength between the three temperature cleaning. I know it's the opposite; "We know" who is hotter and more detergent should acquire this clean clothes, because we have our own experience under the shower-soap making our own-but this is not how well washing clothes. In fact, by using too much detergent to wash your clothes will be unpleasant and dirty residue than when you started. Therefore, to follow the recommendations of Your washing machine and read the instructions box detergents-high performance modern equipment can clean the load with about a quarter Cup of high energy "" detergent. Cold water and save energy. Don't worry if you don't see any foam-"he" detergent designed not to form a foam.

Do not overload the washing machine. Tempting to fill a laundry tray only what has been accumulated over the past week in a washing machine, but the clothes won't be able to expose all surfaces wash action. Fill the washing machine will reduce his life focuses on the mechanisms of transmission and can rupture.

When the washer goes into spin feels as if someone invades your home base with a ridiculous? This is a common complaint in a wooden frame construction, when our washer and dryer are not on the first floor, sitting on the concrete. Two things you can do to reduce this effect on spin cycle is running a lower position-the media and the foot is not high foam-and in the corners of the machine. Sometimes machines are installed without them-a great cause wave-flatten your engine to ensure level and legs tight against the nut adjustment. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

If you have a front load washing machine you might have noticed musty odour coming from it, between charges. This Common and trying a little extra care. Because the water in the seal of the front loader maintains around the door, you will need to take a little bleach water and clean the inside of the door gasket to get rid of this old water. You can do a quarter Cup of bleach in the program, however, some of our septic systems no fantasy is not good with bleach. In this case, the grated work correctly. Finally, if you have no kids or pets, you should try to leave the door open for the air to reduce the accumulation of possible mold in a washing machine.

Water Saving Tips in the Kitchen

To save water regardless of the place in our House, it requires a conscious effort to change our current habits. Even during periods of drought, there are things we did in our daily routine could save water and money if we would have known how and decided to rethink our daily routine. Although the following tips apply to the kitchen, you can take these same ideas and apply them in all areas to everything you do in the House. If you have children, start a game with them to see how much you can save water. For example, when someone left a faucet running, tell you that the first person to highlight the action of waste gets 10 reward points. You will be surprised to see them coming!

In the kitchen, the water valve is the greatest waste of water. We tend to leave without doing anything under the tap, or we need waiting for hot water to reach. A trick is to clog the sink when rinse plates, when washed, or when your dishwasher rinse and use water in the sink for washing containers. If you have a dishwasher, they should really avoid washing dishes, as dishwasher is built to handle this raw on the plates; simply scrape the leftovers in the garbage (dish of dog?). If you have a layout, use it with moderation and remaining light soils in the sink; only using the layout uses too much water, and if you have a septic tank, the provision for such heavy with that material of plant articles is going to slow down the breakdown of septic process very important.

If your dishwasher is equipped with a short cycle, try to use that for full loads. Consumer Reports magazine found that dishwashers do a remarkable cleaning work, even when the plates and pans have debris in them. If short cycle works well for full loads, you can save water.

Make sure that the kitchen faucet is not output. Due to the extensive use in general, receive faucet faucets can begin to infiltrate the base. To test this, move the lever auto the all in a circle full and take a good look at the surroundings of the lower part of the handle. This infiltration may go unnoticed and losing lots of water in a short period of time.

Do you have to run the tap water long time looking for hot water? If so it is wasted water unless you capture in some way. Don't forget to install a recirculation in your water heater pump. These bombs, if combined with timers (by what is not all the time) can eliminate this long wait in the water from the hot water tap.

Take these tips to heart and do your part for the great effort save our planet's resources and keep money in your wallet at the same time.

Bringing Home Some Family Heirlooms


Last week we headed to Oregon for my son's college graduation.  

We also spent some time in Southern Oregon helping my Dad go through some of his things.  He was kind enough to let us take these pieces that mean so much to me.  The dry sink has been in my parents' house as long as I can remember.  I'm guessing that this picture is from the early 60's. 

I think it still looks amazing after 50+ years!

We were able to make the drive home in 11 hours and everything made it safely.

Besides the dry sink, we were also thrilled that he gave us this church pew.  I'm thinking that Bailey (the cat) will discover it soon and have it as his 'watching the neighborhood' seat. 

What are your favorite family heirlooms?
Thank you for your visit!

Downsize Your House

Do you think moving to a smaller House to save money and simplify your life? Think twice. 70% of respondents to the survey on reduction review disappointed and regret. Some of the questions including spending more that your budget allows, cold months more than expected and the difficulty to adapt to smaller spaces.

Don't get discouraged. Reduction to a smaller home can work well, but need to do some serious research and soul searching before deciding. Here's a guide to get started.

Why would you want to reduce its size? Reasons may include just save your changes, save money by moving to a less expensive home, a spacious trading page for minor cuts, to a special place, as mountain tops or the nearest rivers, movement, or to simplify your lifestyle. These are all good reasons to reduce its size, but to explore and reflect on the responses. If the reason is money, conduct research and represent a realistic budget-you will be amazed. Financial advisor at this stage can be very useful.

If your reason for simplifying life, ask yourself if you really can live in less space with less storage and less durable choice. Make a test-start simplifying now and see how it feels. Lay the side of things for a garage sale in the spring. taking things in a closet and taking a decision on the issue. Decide what you need and what you can live without.

The reduction must be effective. This does not mean to pass a House of 2,800 square meters to 2,200 square feet. This is just a movement. The reduction will cut 30% of square feet if you really want to have economies of scale. Moving from 2 800 to 1: 500. Better yet, take a trip to IKEA store Atlanta and walked through a model space emulating House 500 square meters and less. Bit extreme, perhaps, but would definitely suffer the ideas flowing.

Find or create a lot of hidden storage in a small space home. After the move, you will end up with other things that You would have thought. Instead of making You find the new home that is less messy, hide the extra "stuff" in the closets, cupboards and chests.

Find or create a personal space of personal life. A very small home can end the sense of isolation and lack of intimacy can be stressful. Personal space can be very small, so it is very comfortable and bright. Find a good example of this when you visit IKEA.

Reduction of personnel is a way of life. I know that once so we thought that we wanted to be acetic and crawl into a cave, while we sell our goods. This happened in the fleeting moments when we feel overwhelmed by all the trappings of life and the obligations that accompany it. But if you think through what you want to, may have the most of it; peace of mind with little cost for small spaces, less worrisome headache of maintenance and cleanup, and the satisfaction of knowing that you can afford to do and that we expand and things that we want to focus the list of things.

June Bloom and a Winner!

My absolute favorite time of year here is May and June.  After enduring months of cold, it is so welcoming to see all of the perennials come up and show their beauty.

These Lupine are stunning!  I love the plant in front with magenta, pink and purple flowers.  (and of course I love the "all pink" one in the back too!)  :)

The reflections in the pond look so neat!  The lilies and irises are blooming inside the pond.  The creeping thyme is really filling in around the rocks.

We love to sit here and relax.

The Delphiniums are so pretty in bloom.


Oh my gosh, the peonies are in bloom! 


The milk crate I planted last week is starting to fill in.  I used Wave Petunias and a Wallflower.
This clematis is starting to take off. 

 I'm eager to see this clematis start blooming all around the birdhouse.
