i’ve tried several cleaners and scrubbers on my travertine tile on my shower floor and nothing has worked on the dark build-up. i finally tried mr. clean magic erasers and they worked perfectly! its going to take awhile to get them all clean, so i’m doing a few with each shower. si was helping me out, too. after some comments, i’ll not have him help with the magic eraser again without gloves, although reviews on the theory of magic erasers being bad for kids were very mixed. but we’ll definitely stay on the safe side!
a simple string of scrappy fabric makes so much happy! i have one last batch of patriotic scrappy bunting in the shop.
so much new in the shop! and more being added today, too! i think i need more work space…
half of my family was in town, so we got a sitter for the kids after church and spent the afternoon tasting, both beer and wine. we started at barrel house brewing co. loved the location and tasting room.
wildhorse winery had a really pretty patio are where we ate our lunch.
aaaand by our 3rd stop, i decided i was really really picky about wine. it has to be very cold and super sweet, neither of which was served. so i enjoyed my family and the views.
our weather has been unseasonably warm. we usually have nice summer weather, but not usually hot. but we have had what we call hot here, and i have loved it! we are soaking up the lovely weather each night with dinner out in the back yard, until the ocean breeze picks up and starts to cool us off. see those roses? they come off a rose bush in our yard that is probably about 9 feet tall!
it has been project central around here this week, which means daily trips to home depot. the girls stayed home so i got some time with just this guy. why are kids so much better on their own? i love time with just him.
our maui cousins are here for the summer and we have been filling our days with them this week, and loving it! and nothing says summer like s’mores by the backyard fireplace. thats on my list of things to finish this summer… along with 3 pages of other things. not kidding.
not on my list for the summer: sugar. but i decided to not use common sense and cheated a few times this week. too good not to ;)
another fun item for the 4th – posy pins! i generally wear 2 pinned to my tank, or one on a hat, then move them to a denim jacket for the evening and fire works.
these boxes filled by backyard this week for a fun project.
here’s peek #2 at the project
and peek #3! check back soon for the big reveal!
