I’ve been aware of tea tree oil for sometime. The only thing I ever used it on was a hang nail and I was amazed by the results. To be honest -I was turned off by the smell.
Recently, I found some type of insect bites on my leg that I could not explain. They became large welts that were very sore to the touch, red, itchy and painful. I found some tea tree oil in the bathroom cabinet and thought I’d give it a try…lo and behold the welts are almost gone.
It was time to do some research….I found this article – I have tried a number of these suggestions and am always impressed by the results.

“The saying is something like, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” or “one man’s garbage is another man’s gold” which both mean that what is of little value to one person, may in fact be of great value to another person.”
In a previous post I talked about my love of garage and yard sales, auctions, thrift stores and the thrill of the hunt searching for my next vintage trinket or treasure.

I have to admit though I didn’t keep it up for very long.
Then came along the reusable bag craze and my collection of plastic bags dwindled to a manageable amount.
When I found myself with too many plastic bags I would donate them to the PKU office at the local hospital.
Now I find myself with a kitty cat and a vintage trinket business where I tend to need and use plastic grocery bags (you can figure out why lol regarding the kitty cat).
I needed one today and when I looked in my cupboard to retrieve a bag I was embarrassed to see the mess I let my bags get into. I’m almost ashamed to show this picture. Continue reading Grocery Bag Storage
I love CAKE, it is my favorite dessert and believe me I have eaten (and enjoyed) plenty of cake in my lifetime…since it is my birthday, I thought this would be a great post to talk about cake and share some pictures of cakes made by a very close and dear friend of mine.
