Mrs. Potter 2014 Summer Collection

This morning the FedEx guy rang the doorbell and left a package on our front porch.
As soon as I picked it up I noticed the logo on the box.

My 2014 Summer Kit arrived from Mrs. Potter!!

 Everything was packaged beautifully and all of the products arrived safely.
The hand-embroidered linen hand towel is beautiful, what a nice addition to the kit.
 I love how the large candle was wrapped in the towel.

The body lotion, body spray and hand sanitizer came in the
 cutest white cotton drawstring bag!

This is what comes with the 2014 Summer Kit

Large 10 oz Glass Soy-Based Candle that generously fills your home with our signature summer scent: a refreshing, light and sun-filled fragrance that evokes sea spray and warm days. Burn time: 60+ hours

Sticking With Dawn

A small problem in life, but it exists. How to get set in grease stains out of clothing. Dan and I each had a shirt with set in grease stains.   In the past I have used Dawn dish soap (original blue) and it has always worked. I ran out of the Dawn.  Why I decided to try another more expensive stain remover, I do not know. Maybe it was a magazine ad or a tv commercial. Maybe the bottle just looked appealing on the store shelf.

  I treated both shirts with the stain remover, several times. I had even dried the shirts in the dryer!   Decided to go back to my old remedy, Dawn.  Guess what? It removed all of the stains in both shirts. 

I am sticking with Dawn!

be blessed...always.
