A Summer dream

Tuesday, June 29, 2010
Warm breezes are blowing and the garden is in bloom...

I've decided I should move here...

And dream, and be transported to places where the woodland elves dwell.

The Monarchs have arrived, the last pink roses have bloomed, beds sprouting green shoots and blushing flower buds whisper a promise of more bouquets to come...

All year I dream of the days when the sun is warm, the sky is blue, the grass is green, and the garden is all new again... That time is here now, and I'm joyfully living my dream...

This is my reward for nourishing the earth that is placed in my care.

I hope you are spending time out there in your garden, enjoying your own magical moments!

How Much Do You Spend on Cleaners??? Last Chance For a FREE MEMBERSHIP

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I hope that you all had a great weekend.  I did!  Today, we celebrated my daughters 5th Birthday and my husband’s Grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary!  We are all wiped out so I will post my weekly pictures later on this week.

In this post, I want to first of all THANK everyone that has bought Shaklee from me!!!  I am very appreciative of all business but even more than that,  I LOVE helping people!!!  I LOVE getting emails from you telling me how much that you love the products.  I love hearing how these products helped with your child’s allergies or autism, or your child’s skin rash went away, that you lost weight from our Cinch line and how now you are SAVING money by switching cleaners.

That is what Shaklee is all about, creating healthier lives, and they have been doing that for over 50 years now!  That is a long time in the business world.  That also shows something about this company……GREAT PRODUCTS!!!!!

Our mission at Shaklee is to provide a healthier life for everyone and a better life for anyone. We do it by making natural products that are so exceptional, you just have to tell your friends. Every product that goes into every Shaklee bottle is designed to improve health, work without compromise, and be gentle on the planet. That’s the short answer.

Most of you have seen my giveaways on other blogs, so you have seen their results. 

YES, these products WORK!!!!

I have told you over and over again how safe these products are for your family.

YES, these products are SAFE!!!!

I have even told you how CHEAP these products are.

YES, these products are CHEAP …………..but,

I know that is the REASON that some of you are NOT SWITCHING YET! 

I know because people have told me that they think they are expensive….BUT they are not understanding how  concentrated cleaner works.

So, I am going to de-bunk the myth that these are too expensive right NOW!!!


Get Clean Cost Comparison 2009 -- MN

This chart is a reason alone to switch!  I know that it helped me make my decision!

Did you check out how much it costs to make a GALLON of window cleaner?  LESS THAT 1 CENT!!!!   That’s CRAZY!

I also have to be honest,  when I do laundry and wash my dishes, I use even LESS than they recommend and it still does the job!  So I save even more money that way!

I SAVE hundreds of dollars each year by using these products, plus I am keeping the chemicals out of my home and helping our planet!

I wrote this post because I know so many of you are on top of the fence debating to switch and I wanted to educate you on how much you will be saving by switching brands. With the tough economy right now, I know people are looking for ways their family can save money and I want to help make a difference!  Plus, these products are safer for your family too!!!

You'd have to spend more than $3,400 to get the same amount of clean found in the Get Clean Starter Kit!

Show Off Your Cottage Monday

Welcome to “Show Off Your Cottage Monday”, a blog party I host at the beginning of each week to celebrate the things we love about our homes and how we live.

The House in the Roses

Do you love textile? Are you like me in my obsessions with pillows and table linens? The other day I realized that I have boxes full of tablecloths and fabrics just waiting to be used for something... Are you like that too? Oh yes, I'm in love with textile, the charm of fabric, the softness, the blending of colors and different textures... There is something rich and dazzling in the mixture of fabrics. There are blues with hues that remind you of the beauty of aquamarine, and there is the romantic colors of beryl, and there is the lushness of pinks and the warmth of yellows and celadon, peach, lilac and other rich pastels.... their combination is just pure bliss... So, can you already guess what I'm celebrating today?

I'm such a fabric fanatic, and these pictures are so beautiful... unfortunately I can't remember where I got them from, so you'll have to forgive me for not giving the proper credit... and what are you celebrating today? I would love to hear it.

A girly girl...

I love them dearly. But I don’t want to look like one.

When women gave up their long skirts, they made a grave error…"

bathroom makeover

That was a before and after picture of my downstairs powder room.   I decorated this bathroom for CHEAP!!!

I not totally done with it, but I am happy for now. 

2010 06 02_4651

One of the things that I still want to do is to add molding around the mirror.  Do you think that I should go white or black???

2010 06 02_4652

I guess that I will start off with  my curtain and rod.

2010 06 02_4653

I actually made this curtain with fabric that I already had……FREE!  The rod was brand new from the Goodwill for $5.  (It is originally from Target.)

2010 06 02_4654

Here is a better look.

 2010 06 02_4655

I got this holdback on Clearance from Wal-Mart for like $7 (and it came in a pack of 2, so I get to use another on some where else.)

 2010 06 17_5156

These rings were a little more than I wanted to spend….they were $10 from Linens n Things.  I really wanted the big rings!

 2010 06 17_5157 

This wall clock was only 5 bucks from a garage sale.

2010 06 02_4656 I got these flowers for $3- GS.

2010 06 02_4657

Because we save some much on decorating our house by finding EVERYTHING from garage sales, over the winter, we splurged and  got granite in here and the kitchen.  I had to say that I am loving it.

2010 06 02_4658

This artwork was only $3 from a GS.

 2010 06 02_4659

I bought this tot stool from a GS for $2 and I painted the top black.  (It was a light oak color.)

2010 06 02_4660

We bought all of our hardware on ebay for half price.  They were under $2 each!

 2010 06 02_4661 2010 06 02_4662 

I bought this mirror for 1 dollar!!!!  Where you ask?  A Garage Sale of course!!!

2010 06 02_4670

2010 06 02_4663

I accessories are from Aldi special purchase.  Once a year, they had great bathroom deals.  I got a light fixture, towel ring,  towel bar,  tp holder and towel hook for $40.  I also used the kit here.

2010 06 02_4664

Here is a picture of the tp holder, nice huh?

 2010 06 02_4665

I got that lamp for $3.

2010 06 02_4666

This soap dispenser was from the Goodwill for like $3.

 2010 06 02_4667 2010 06 02_4668

This is the light that came with the house, but I think that I will be changing it soon.

 2010 06 02_4669

Here is the before. 


Here is the after.  Oh yeah, before I forget, I  My husband painted this room Capilano Bridge from Benjamin Moore.
