I am a gadget person.  Was cleaning out one of the closets and found an old expansion drive piece of equipment.  Of course I had to plug in and see what was loaded.  Some sweet pictures of days gone by.......

Would you like to try a homemade remedy to smells in your home?  I have bought every kind of spray available and they last a short time. This is cheap to make and lasts.........

– 2 cups of water
– 4 tablespoons of baking soda
– A few drops of essential oil of your choice (lemon, lavender, orange, eucalyptus …)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, leave it for 30 minutes, then pour the solution into a spray bottle.
Spray this mix to all areas of your home that tend to absorb odors.

This homemade deodorant is very effective in removing odors and leaves a pleasant scent. The ingredients used to prepare it are all natural and very effective.

MOVING ON.........
We southerners have a language of our own, I am sure you already know. I found some expressions yesterday and they made me smile, because I have and still do, use most of them.

Hope Y'ALL have a great day!!!


  1. Good Morning, What a treat to find these sweet photos of the grands. Thanks for the natural recipe for household smells. When I cook, the smell lingers! Oh yes, I am familiar with all of these Southern sayings!

  2. You and I are on the same track, enjoying looking back:) Have a blessed day and yes, I still use those expressions too:) Worn slap out, makes me think of my Mama! HUGS!

  3. {{{Giggling}}} I sure can relate to those sayings...folks up here look at me like I have lost my ever loving mind, lol.

    Thanks for the smiles, Linda. Hope you have a beautiful day.
