Simply Beautiful.

Every day we are faced with the choice- how can I make life better today? What can I say, do, make, give or be to make my life and the lives of others better. Here I want to focus on the positives of life in each day, in each moment. By choosing how we answer those questions in a positive way, we make the world a better place for every single one.

I am trying a new format starting today. I will be posting Studio project and shop updates on Mondays. Each Wednesday I will post a "World Wednesday" update with things found in nature, or other nature related topics. On Fridays I will post a tip or project I suggest. Hopefully it will be a fun and exciting change!

Friday Tip: Help for Smelly Laundry

I have now tried this idea for the past two weeks and I am happy to report I have found a way to get just about any smell out of the dirtiest of laundry.  If any of your laundry contains sweaty and therefore smelly laundry you have to try this. Ifyour laundry contains no sweat then you muct not be living in the U.S. in the summer, and especially not living in Virginia this summer!  Though I have to say, today has been a welcome break from all that heat here.  Somehow we managed a day a good twenty degrees cooler than it was yesterday.  Nice!  Anyway- back to the tip!  All you have to do is let the water sart filling up in your washing machine.  Add whatever detergent you normally use.  Next, add white dilled vinegar.  I put in a healthy pour- maybe a half to three quarters of a cup. Let about half of your normal water fill up before adding the dirty laundry.  This gives the vinegar a chance to work around.  You won't smell any vinegar when the clothes are done I promise!  Just clean, lovely clothes!

Well, since I don't think you want to look at pics of my smelly clothes here are some much prettier pictures of lovely flowers from my garden last summer:
