Emptied my container of Martha Stewart cleaner.
Decided to fill it with my homemade cleaner, that works so well for me.
I found the recipe on the internet but I cannot remember where?
It is half Dawn blue detergent and half white vinegar. I also add 1/2 cup of water to mine. I use it for everything.
I used this to remove the front and back sticker labels.
I washed out the container with hot soapy water and let it dry completely.
I found a sheet of rub-ons in my craft drawer. I cut out the ones I wanted to use, arranged them on the front of the container, positioned them firmly, then rubbed the design firmly with a wooden popsicle stick. That simple!
I must tell you about the site where I found this sheet. It is
http://octoberafternoon.com I was so impressed with their products, especially since vintage designs are their specialty.
I added a "thank you" tag and will keep it to use as a hostess gift.
That way my friend will think of me each time she uses this to clean with. Maybe she will even say a prayer for me when she does.
I had saved another container that had hand soap in it. I went through the same steps and will use this in my rose bathroom. I filled it with some Crabtree and Evelyn Rosewater liquid soap that I had in my cupboard.
I did find a good recipe for handmade soap that I would like to try sometime. You can find it at http://thankyourbody.com/homemade-liquid-hand-soap
Rub-ons provide some fun opportunities to add some color and design to many surfaces.
On a totally different note, I made some peanut butter cookies last Saturday.
I used one bag of Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix, followed the easy directions, except I added 1 tea. of vanilla to the list of ingredients.
Next I added 1 cup of chopped honey roasted peanuts, and 3/4 cup of mini white chocolate chips. Stirred batter together, then put cookie batter on cookie sheet and baked as per directions. My husband said, "I must share these".
Simple, quick, and delicious!
I wrapped some in clear cellophane, tied each end, added a card, and then froze the packs in tupperware container. Sometimes, I just need a little gift for friends. This will work, unless of course they have a peanut allergy. Then I will have to come up with another plan.
Truly "just a little something for you" this evening.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
