Homemade Organic Deodorant

Trying to be green from the head down and not the color green. I have been trying to find a good homemade organic deodorant. Bacteria does not like to live on coconut oil and tea tree oil.  so here it is. virgin coconut oil (unrefined) -2 teaspoons
2.tea tree oil- half a teaspoons
3.essential oils (i used...i don't remember..) just one drop to hide all that coconut smell
4.a small travel liquid tight container - found at you local walmart travel aisle (you know the little soap bottles are)
- Mix until you can not see the coconut oil and pour into jars/containers
-Will keep for two weeks


Found Wood

Good things about the element:
1. It looks like a box
2. the back seats are wide
3.  it can fit a lot of old wood and broken furniture people throw away, two car seats filled with children and a red wagon.

Here is what i found today.

And as the junker I am, I have the right to be junky... to save it all for a rainy day. and to copy and paste for viewing later down the road of life... (my life and maybe yours)


ideas! so many ideas!

                                               inspiring - stimulating or exalting to the spirit

Do I need to say more?! 


can't let go of all this grey

Life has been busy and I have had no time to blog
My found wood Coffee table is almost done....!!!!!!


Yellow Dresser

Remember this Pretty little lady? After a few days of Rain, I took some time to finish her up this afternoon. 

She is pulling double duty. As chest of drawers and night stand. Some times I am more organized than I would like to be. (Ikea has ruined me.)

Yep, I think I will keep her. 


Can't help but giggle.


This is worth your time to look at today and very inspirational.
(plus the name makes me giggle)


Re re re do

 A long time ago when I lived in an apartment with only a blue sofa and white walls. (It was my first college apartment)  One of my professors gave me a small round kitchen table. (thanks BT) John Elder gave me his enter house when he moved back to Canada (but that story is for another day) The art house basement filled with two feet of water when it rained. (Sometime I would walk down the stairs and find James floating on a matters) The table was molded and i have painted and sanded this sucker 3 times now. Now 5 years later it is a coffee table (just a few minutes ago my hubby started pulling it apart because he can not stand the uneven legs) so now I am  going to re-re build it. *sigh* Just another found wood furniture re-build...part 3..

Just a little look at the yellow lady!


Sanding Time

It is Saturday night and I have been sanding and playing house today. I'm going to paint the pretty little thing yellow in the morning before or after church. Now that I think about it I have to pay bills and go to Kroger. 

Playing and Sanding (what could be better?)

The Road My Parents live. I spent my teen years driving this rd.  and this is the new inspiration for the chest of draws.
PS- I also order handles off of eBay for 0.99
(this is going to be fun)

I keep having the Same Dream about Bronson Pinchot and I talking design over hot tea in the middle of a hay field and it always gets interrupted with bears on unicycles. (Hey, I never said I was sane) but this should prove I am sane.
