It all started with a pack of butt wipes 

Inspiration can come from anywhere!

Awhile back, I was sitting on my throne, and I looked down at the newly label baby wipes from Aldi’s. 

I was kind of pondering why they changed their packaging and I realized that this new look was totally more fresh, and – I started appreciating how well the teal color complimented the limegreen. 

And then I jokingly thought, why don’t I just refresh the bathroom to match the new butt wipes lol 

Haha, yep. I laughed but That’s exactly what I’m doing. 

The walls are already white – so it’s really been a matter of eliminating the red curtains, the red soap dish – red towels and upping the blue and greens. 

I confess, I even swapped out the red bucket that usually lives in here and replaced it with a blue bucket. 

I’m in this bathroom so much – I might as well have an object to appreciate.

Super glad I went with a painting done by a human being other then a print of one. 

Thank you pack of butt wipes for being so inspiring!

Love My Little Helpers

In the spirit of Waldorf-inspired rhythm in the home, I had lots of help washing and rinsing the dishes tonight. I am excited at the thought of some future help in this department!!

Whooo hooo ~ Mama will gladly hand over the scrubbie!!

My little helpers worked hard together as a team and most impressively, only broke one bowl 🙂

Solution for Ants in the Honey

After complaining to my beekeeper about the ants getting into my honey and how I was tired of using a ziploc bag around the bottle, he suggested putting it in a dish of water.

Perfect! A moat for my honey jar and guess what? No ants. And that plastic bag rubber band thing I was doing, doesn’t slow down my tea making now. Love it.

Image posted by

Upon request ~ I called G.G. today and she’s totally cool with me sharing the recipe:

Pickled Eggs

1 cup sugar (scant)
1 cup vinegar
2 cups beet liquid
1 1/2 Tbsp. salt or less
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch cloves

Bring to a boil – cool – put in eggs and let set for a few days.

Personally, I used a few pinches of the spices because that’s how I like it.
