A few of the wow moments, or things I discover each week that tickle my fancy. I hope that they may inspire or tickle yours too!
This is a most unusual crochet necklace. Not sure I would do it in this colour, but I think in another colour with different beads it would be really nice. Found on Flickr .
Twenty Five Heart Shaped Food Ideas for Valentines Day. There is something for every taste. Found on No Biggie Net.
NO source but how hard could this be. What a cute entrance idea for the house for Valentines Day! I love it! (No pun intended!)
Cute and Cheap Valentines Decorating ideas. Most are very simple. Found on Money Hip Mamas.
From For Women First, a genius use for orphan socks. I would have never thought of doing this, but having seen it, it only makes sense! I know I often pull an old sock over my hand to dust. You can really get into the nooks and crannies that way. The hands are the perfect tool!
How to clean appliances from that sticky residue which can build up over time. Easy and cheap. Found on Buzz Feed. No instructions but I am thinking a damp sponge and some cream of tartar. I use a damp sponge and baking soda. You know Baking Soda is great for about a bazillion things, so is Vinegar. I use them both all the time.
This next find is a combination of scary and genius! On the one hand it is brilliant to think that with a string and a can of crisco shortening you can have a candle that will burn for forty five days (supposedly). On the other hand it makes me think do I want to put something in my body that you can insert a string into and burn like a candle for 45 days? It's a conundrum. No source.
Not sure I would be brave enough to attempt this on my own, but I am tempted. How to cut your own bangs Found on Refinery 21.
How to hem your jeans and keep the original hem intact. This is genius. Why didn't I think of that? Found on Do It Yourself Divas.
A simple way to keep brown sugar soft. Pop a few marshmallows into the bag. They absorb any excess moisture. Sugar stays soft. From Storage and Glee.
Hope you found something useful here today. I know I did!!
Look at the collection of jars my sister has made so far. Aren't they sweet! I am not sure which one is my favourite one! I love them all!
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
"We can only be said to be alive
in those moments when our hearts
are conscious of our treasures."
Cooking in The English Kitchen today . . . Classic Boeuf Bourguinon. Simple and tasty!
Hope you have a fabulous Friday! Hooray for the weekend!
Don't forget . . .
