Never a Dull Moment

Thank goodness for tempered glass. My husband was weed eating last night and a rock hit the door just right- the glass just started cracking away. I had enough time to get a blanket right by the door to catch what fell outside.

Thank goodness for some scrap wood we were able to screw it up to the metal frame for now. Not sure we can afford to fix it, so I am betting it stays like this for a while.

Remembering a Father Quilt

A friend of mine lost her father and I took some of his clothing to make a quilt.

I tried to find items that had embroidery to show where he worked

I used a soft cuddly flannel for those times where she might want some extra comfort for her memories

The corners are from four pairs of pants, the rest are shirts that she had.

I tried to use as many pockets as I could. She loved the quilt.

Combat Bait Kit Giveaway

I have another coupon giveaway for you thanks to Combat. They sent me two of their products to test last month. If you follow my blog you know we have chickens, quail, rabbits and guinea hens. With that comes a problem of ants in our chicken coop and around it. We tried these products out there.
You do have to be a little creative becuase you don't want the chickens to be pecking away at the traps etc. We have the coop up off the ground and have the ability to put a piece of wood under which will block the chickens from entering under their house. The products worked wonderfully and I don't see any ants trailing around. The problem I have inside is roaches, I love their ant baits so much I went out and bought those. I have not seen another roach in the bathroom after one weeks time. Their products are very fast working! If you don't want to enter my giveaway you can go to their site and get $1 off coupon now. You can also enter to win products on their site with their Bug Free Backyard Bash 

For this giveaway I will be reporting your info directly to Purex so that Combat can send you your coupon/winning kits. The opinions expressed are my own. I was provided with two items to try our and review.

Soft Scrub Coupon Giveaway

I was given two bottles of Soft Scrub to try out and write a review on. I was also provided with coupons for a giveaway. I decided since they offer a TOTAL ALL PURPOSE cleaner, we would try this out on my stovetop. We have the hardest time with this stovetop, the previous owners purchased the oven/stovetop. This would not have been my choice. I had my 14 year old son do the cleaning to show you how easy it is to use Soft Scrubs product.
Well I would say he did a really good job cleaning with it wouldn't you? It is nice and easy to use and has a new foam option. He let it sit a few minutes and then started scrubbing away. I really like this new household cleaning product Soft Scrub Offers. I love that you can use the bottle upside down in places like your toilet or microwave too! So now is the fun part where I get to give you a coupon to purchase your very own bottle of Soft Scrub. Valued up to $4.69
