  1. Lots of good finds today, Marie. Cute little hot chocolate snowmen. No baby food jars but I'm sure I could find something suitable. Magic eraser to clean your oven glass. Who knew? Happy Friday. Love and hugs, Elaine

    1. Those magic erasers are wonderful Elaine! I don't know how I ever got along without one or two! Happy Friday! Love and hugs, xoxo

  2. Thank goodness for crafts and hobbies♥

  3. Great finds. Did you get a lot of snow? It is getting milder here and there is a heavy rainfall warning for overnight and tomorrow. Better than digging! Have a good Friday.

  4. Lots of inspiration here, folks are so creative! Happy weekend⭐️

  5. Thank you for including that tip to clean my oven door! Never would have guessed something so simple as a Magic Eraser would do the trick!
    BTW, your book arrived via courier yesterday. I'm so excited!

  6. Lots of lovely finds in this post. Love the puppy scrubby and those spool pin cushions. And I'm going to take a look at that link on how to clean the glass on your oven door. Wonder if it really works.

  7. I enjoyed your list of upbeat finds and read the mac and cheese recipe, that sounds tasty.


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
