I did, despite my efforts to avoid it, fall into the Pin(terest)hole recently.
...I was looking through my photographs this morning and realized that at least I resurfaced with something to show for my plummet.
Last week I made body scrub with (tweaked) recipes I found there.
Wish I could give credit to the poster, but I no longer know where I was when I read the recipe.
I made Lime & Coconut Oil sugar scrub ("You put the lime in the coconut..." Anyone remember? Anyone? Bueller?), which Miss Helping Hands used in the shower recently and said, " It was lovely and smelled great".
I also made Lemon & Olive Oil salt/sugar scrub (with lemon zest!), which I've been using at the kitchen sink.
Anyone want some?
It won't keep forever.
On my recent crochet binge, I made a little purse for Baby Girl (she's into purses and keys - she's going places, I tell you).
I do remember that I got the pattern from here, and am very grateful, thank you.
This bag was just a wee bit large for Ping...
...but I made and gave her the second one before I photographed it.
So there you are.
Also, from the great world of Pinterest, came a peek at these wonderful clothespin toys by Molas & Co. (Such creativity!)
Have I ever mentioned how I love clothespins?
I have a drawer full of different styles and sizes, and a heart full of good memories of hanging laundry, and watching Me Darlin' Mither hang laundry, too.
I guess I could wax poetic about the humble clothespin and it's many uses, but I'll spare you (just this once).
I tried my hand at making some of the 'mechanical toys' like Molas & Co., but I used heavy paper and colored pencil, rather than balsa wood and watercolor.
I needed a birthday gift recently for someone special, and these fit the bill (quite literally).
(Why am I using so many parentheses in this post?)
(What's with that?)
(Don't I believe in what I'm saying enough to make the sentences stand on their own?)
(I guess not.)
I like little things with hidden surprises.
I like homemade gifts.
I like clothespins.
Thank you, clothesPinterest.
I appreciate the tour.
