Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Lavender Cleaning Spray

Just a little concoction to help make your spring cleaning more pleasant; a natural cleaning spray made of borax, vinegar, and essential oils. Your house will smell all lavender-blue, dilly dilly...lavender green! I almost enjoy cleaning the bathroom when I use this spray.


3 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup borax
1/2 tsp lavender essential oil
1/2 tsp tea tree oil

Mix all ingredients and pour into a clean spray bottle.

NOTE: Please use a clean, preferably new sprayer so you don't inadvertently mix chemicals. And though this is all natural, it surely should not be consumed. So don't let the kids or pets drink it...and if you use it on your sink and counters, rinse it well. (Just as you would Comet or any other cleaner.)

It is the nicest, cleanest scent. The lavender makes it sweet but the tea tree oil gives it a little minty-ness. And the tea tree helps with killing germs. It's nice stuff and easy to make.
Thanks for visiting.

That sounds great. I add a couple of drops of lavender oil to my pillowcase - it does seem to help me sleep much better.
