I don't like bars of soap on my counters they're just plan messy, not to mention dirty looking. Having a pump bottle is a must for me. And pretty container like these are just a real plus. After decorating all the rooms in my house for the holidays I want that extra touch of pretty in my soap dispenser too. The scents are light, fresh and clean smelling. I've also found that the foaming soap is easier for kids to rinse off then regular soap. Dial was the firstantibacterial soap introduced in the United States. It's been around since the 1940's, it's a brand that I grew up with and a brand that I trust.
Being a Purex Insider has great benefits. Like receiving great new products to try. When a box like this comes in the mail you can't help but be excited to open it.
A full size bottle of Purex Baby liquid laundry detergent that is looking for a review and my honest opinion.
I nolonger have babies in the house but I do have family members with sensitive skin and I know how regular laundry detergent can be a nightmare for them. One of the biggest complaints of using laundry detergent for sensitive skin is that it doesn't have a nice scent. With Purex Baby that's not a problem because you can have it all.
It's gental on Baby's Skin.
Tough on Baby's Messes.
Tough on yours too!
Bright, white clean with a gentle baby-inspired fragrance
Purex knows that you want the best for your family and that doesn't mean spending a fortune on baby-safe products. So you can save some money on Purex Baby detergent, which costs a fraction of the leading brand, without jeopardizing quality.
I was very pleased with the cleaning power of Purex Baby detergent. It worked great on the tough stains (like the messy food stains the adults make in our house). Plus I still got the soft pleasing scent in my laundry that makes me smile.

I've been collecting Christmas ornaments for years. One thing I make sure to do is buy the grandchildren a new ornament each year. I like the thought of them having at least 20 very special ornaments each to start their own family tree with one day.
After 10 years that adds up to a lot of ornaments. I usually have two full size tree's up but this year I only put one up. And what do you do when you decide to go with a new look one year? I still want to see all those special ornaments that bring back so many memories.
When researching idea's, that's a fancy way of justifing the time I waste on Pinterest,yes I'm addicted, I came across this great idea.Dana from Circa Dee's crate display had been pinned and I knew I'd found my answer. If there's one thing I don't lack around here it's old stuff! You can see Dana's beautiful display here.
No this one crate doesn't hold all my extra ornaments but it does make a sweet vintage display. You are limited on size but I was able to display some very special ones. Some of the little trains from my Christopher Radko set, the engine wouldn't fit :(, and few that were chosen for Zach and Ki'a.
I used jute twine to hang the ornaments and tie around the dividers. On the top row I just stapled the twine to the inside of the top. Easy as pie! I hope you liked it and it inspires you to create something wonderful with what you have.
If you like it or have your own ideas for Christmas displays, I'd love to hear about it in the comments. I just LOVE reading them.
Where did this month go? Oh my' - there are only 12 days till Christmas!!! Why didn't someone tell me? Was I in some kind of time warp or something?Well I have been getting a few little projects done here and there. One of which I thought I'd share today.
I did manage to get an Advent calendar uh' sign or something done before the 24th. Okay, so the grandkids got to double up on candy for the first few days.
I BELIEVE I'll be using this for years to come.
I wish I would have thought take photo's so I could show you a simple tutorial, but hey I didn't even know that December was slipping away.
It really is a pretty simple project. Here's the basic steps:
Paint a board. I found an old piece of plywood we had laying around and mixed up some old leftover blue and white paint to get the color I wanted. $0.00 money there. Oh' go ahead and paint your clothes pins here too.
Using scrapbook paper I had on hand I glued it to the from of the clothes pins and trimmed them out with scissors. $0.00 money there too. I had the clothes pins on hand but you can buy a package of them at Family Dollar for around $2.00.
Using Dixie Cups, had them on hand too. Just enough - 24 exactly after using one for the pattern! Whew! I took one apart and traced the side to make a pattern. I then cut out 24 in coordinating colors of scrapbook paper and glued them around the cups. Trim the bottom if it's a little long. $0.00 money there. Do you see a pattern?
Glue ribbon around the tops and add a little bow. $0.00 again.
Punch holes on the sides of each cup and handles made with tinsel chenille stems/pipe cleaners. $0.00
Using the cups to measure, space the clothes pins out on your board and glue. Be sure to put something heavy, like dictionary's, boxes, whatever on top to weigh it down till it dries about 1 hour. I hung my off the side so they would tilt. Added benefit is you now have a card holder too!
Using my cricut Icut out the numbers for the days out of a cereal box. The weight makes great chipboard for painting and gluing. $0.00, yes again! You can buy chipboard #'s, stick on #'s or even paint your own with a paint or marker. Get creative!
Now for the messy part. Spread the numbers with glue and add glitter. Then attach to the front of each cup. $0.00.
Add a phrase like Believe, I stenciled and painted. Hang and your done.
There you go a easy, do with what you've got, zero cost, DIY project that will last!
I must have done something right because my granddaughter said "Grandma you finished it! It's SO pretty"!! Now that will put a smile on your face.
I hope you enjoyed it. Come back tomorrow to see more Christmas projects. If you made a Advent calendar of your own, I'd love to hear about it.
Winn Dixie asked for my help and YOUR help on a fun project.
With the holidays fast approaching they are asking the question "How are you celebrating local flavor during the holidays"? Do you have a big family dinner? Maybe it's the family you weren't born to but have created with friends. Is there a special dish local to your city or where you are from that you look forward to enjoying for the holidays?
Well Winn Dixie wants to hear all about it! Submit your recipe for a chance to be featured in the final Holiday Recipes to Impress e-Cookbook. After the holidays, top recipes will be selected and included in the completed e-cookbook and shared for fans to download!
You'll also want to checkout the Winn Dixie website, where you'll find tips on entertaining as well as great recipes to help you plan all your holiday festivities.
When the Christmas holidays start to roll around, family recipes are one of the first things I start thinking about. Having tradition foods sitting around the house just makes everything seem so festive. Just sitting out a bowl of fresh fruit and nuts, especially oranges and tangerines since we live in Florida, always remind my sister Joni and me of our mom. That was her tradition. My family wouldn't think it was Christmas without having a dish of Cherry Salad. Don't let the name fool you. It's totally a dessert. The cherry's add the punch of red to make it Christmas special and the pineapple give it that tropical feel. Don't expect it to last long. Here's my recipe for Cotton Pickin' Cute Cherry Salad for you and your family to enjoy.
I have a special invite for you too. Winn Dixie would like to have you join them for aTwitter party.

A lot of you remember me mentioning my friend Julie before but did I tell you how talented she was? She's oozing with crafty talent in so many catagories. Do I sound jealous? Well, can you blame me. She loves painting like the wintery scenes she's done below. I love seeing old items like these wooden windows, being recreated and used for new purposes.
Isn't this the cutest little outfit. Julie made a pillow case top from novelty prints and then hand
painted the same scene onto a pair of jeans. Isn't she the smartest thing? I adore the Peanut Gang scene. Julie also makes custom order items.
I believe the wintery art windows are for sale now. Stop by and check out her Pinterest page. You'll find her creations and also all the cute things she pins from blogland.
You can follow Julie's blog here or http://mamawjsmomentaway.blogspot.com/. She's a BzzAgent too and likes to share her product reviews, host giveaways,and share the ones she finds with readers. I hope you'll stop by, tell her I sent you and become a new follower.
Remember me telling you that one of my newest BzzAgent campaigns, is one that my resident expert Mattie - our fur baby is testing. Well without a doubt she's enjoyed it!
There's not a bite left in the bowl when we feed her. I love knowing she likes it but more importantly that it's healthy. Eukanuba has given me so much information about pet care. Did you know that your dog may have dental issues that you can't see? In fact, 85% of dogs have tarter build up by age 3. Untreated these issues can lead to painful extractions, tooth loss and abscesses. You can help keep your dog's canines healthy with Eukanuba, the only leading brand that is powered by complete nutrition and superior diet protection in every adult and senior diet.
Recommended by vets, Eukanuba with 3D DentaDefense keeps your dog in top condition from tooth to tail. I wish I would have discovered Eukanuba sooner. Mattie's 13 years old now and has very few teeth left. Unfortunately they do have tarter. It makes me so happy to know that she's actually enjoying a healthier food and that I'm giving her a product that contains NO fillers!
