This & That…finish Of May Possibly

Here is what I have been up to…
one. It really is a good notion to keep a bottle of Oxi-Clean next to the hamper in the bedroom but that bottle is so unattractive! I poured mine into a clean spray bottle and gave it a chic new label. So much much better.
2. Began doing work on the “peel and stick” vinyl gold stars in Ariel’s foyer—we’re doing the ceiling, too. When it is carried out it ought to look like wallpaper!
three. Purchased a patio set on Craig’s list but I hated the colour of the authentic wood so I gave it a coat of dark wood stain and it appears like new.
four. Sometime flowers are overrated…just seem at this stunning concrete planter with numerous shades of greens.

Have a excellent weekend and Shabbat Shalom!
