Recipe for Witch Repellent - a Guest Post

I can honestly say that we have a lot of the boxes unpacked and the most important things put in their proper places.  Whew, what a job! I am so glad that I have some great blogger friends that are able to help me out through all this Today I would like you to meet Dana who blogs at                        Dapoppins






Dana is a professional nanny and a Mother. She loves reading children's books , is a writer, and a scrapbook enthusiast. A very busy lady indeed.
Today she is sharing her tutorial on how to make Witch Repellent for those nights you may be out and need it - this weekend, maybe....
So without further ado I am going to let Dana take it from here.

Glamorized Vanity

Written by Cathy Carroll




Today I am going to show you a vanity I just redid.

Vintage, Paint and more... old vanity refurbished with new wood front

This piece was a piece that T brought home knowing I would love to do a makeover on it. He was not wrong. It had perfect bones to work with.  But when my granddaughter Mimi saw it she called dibs on it.  She had to leave her vanity behind when they moved and had been wanting one to replace it. (only so much room in a truck). What you don't see here is the fact it had a large hole right in the middle of the front where you see the lighter wood piece.  So T replaced the holey piece with a new piece of wood.  It is curved and required some soaking in water and curving ever so slowly.  But with time and patience it was achieved.

Sunflowers for Fall

Written by Cathy Carroll


I love Sunflowers and I love to decorate with them in the Fall.  Usually you will find quite a few of them strewn about our home and on the porch.  I  use both the live ones and the faux ones. I like to put them in pots, vases, just lay them on a shelf or stuff them in wherever I can.  I think they are such a happy and cheerful flower.  So today I am bringing you a happy little arrangement that is quite simple to make.
