And I do too!



  1. Good morning my darling Marie. I hope you feel a little better today. I am off to read about house work paralysis. Today I felt like yelling at the cleaner today. She does so little and this one has much to say. I was dealing with one of the many stacks of paper that mum wants to keep. It is so difficult for mum to throw anything away. We have so much stuff and I have my fair share too. But this week we are back to the retrieving things from the bin and bring them back into the house.

    God bless you darling

    1. Suze, a paper shredder works wonders for important papers! I rip up the other papers b4 throwing them away. Alittle time consuming, but it will stay in the bin where it belongs. Lol.

  2. Good morning..thanks for all your finds..I am a little crochet addict at the moment..just dishcloths:) Facecloths..:)

    Enjoy your home sweet home..

  3. I have 2 revolving spice racks that hold 10 on top and 10 on bottom, that I love.

    I always ck out Michelle's blog (beb) too!

    I see alot of food bloggers use cloth napkins as props. Sewing them would be even cheaper too. There's alot of pretty material to pick out to sew.

    Alot of interesting facts, esp about the roses.

    I sure hope ur cold is leaving u sooner than later. xoxo

  4. Thank you as usual Marie for all the finds...I think you are brilliant to find these is your cold today, sure hope it's easing itself away now....not before time. Been quite a nice day down here no rain but a very strong wind, I have never known such strong winds in June....ever....hope you have managed to get yourself slowly back into the swing of things after your holiday xx. Night night. God bless

  5. You must have the patience of Job Suzan! God bless you right back! Xoxo

    I am so pleased you are getting the hang of crocheting Monique! Kudos to you for not giving up! Yay! Xoxo

    I do use tea towels and napkins Jan! So easy to make and wash! Xoxo

    It was dry and windy here also Sybil. Todd found it cold, but he often does! Between my cold and my knee it is starting to get me down a bit! God bless you too. Xoxo

  6. J I do have a shredder. The stuff I am trying to remove are things like a lone jar lid because the jar was broken long ago or an old pill case. Our pills are delivered prepacked in the pharmacy. The list goes on.

  7. Oh dear Suzan, sounds like mum is a real hoarder! xo

  8. Oh, those grilled sweet potato packets looks so good. I must try those. I do love all your recipes and have enjoyed some of them.
    I always enjoy your finds. I liked the one for making your own lawn fertilizer. I found some of the ingredients very interesting.
    I will need to look at the one about crocheting mistakes; because I make a ton when I do a project.
    I will spend some moment looking at a few of the links that I really liked.
    Thanks for always posting these fun things!
    Blessings and big hugs for you! Love you much~!
