Helpful Hint

Every year, the same time of the year, I get little bitty ants in my kitchen. I don't know where they come from but they come in every year. Well up to this year, I could clean everything off my counters, spray with ant spray and wala they die. Well not this year.
This year the little heathens would not go away. I sprayed twice and then the demons got in my cabinets!! I have never had ants in my cabinets. I had to throw away cereal, rice and flour. GRRR!! So I couldn't thin what to do. No way was I going to spray poison in my cabinets. The fumes would probably get in the food.
So I went online and searched. It said just to spray hot water. Nope, the demons wouldn't go away. They would die that day and be back the next with twice as many. So by now I am getting irate. I hate ants!!!
So I tried thinking of what I could use that would be safe and it hit me, why not try vinegar? Yes it stinks but it wouldn't harm you. So I cleaned everything out of my cabinets again. Sprayed them with vinegar and water. I put two parts vinegar and one part water. Believe it or not, IT WORKED!!!! No more ants!!! Halleluhah!!! Now I know most of you probably know that, but for those of you that don't, if you get aggravated with ants, just spray vinegar and water and the little demons die. Until next time...

Look what I Got

I ordered some sheep ornies from Brenda at The Rusty Thimble week before last and I received them last week. Sorry I haven't posted before now but it has been utter chaos here.

But anyway these are the cutest sheep and when I opened the box, she had them all wrapped individually in patterns. But look, there's not 3 packages, there is 4 and I only ordered 3!
So when I opened them, I had a surprise!! We all love surprises! She sent me the cutest little stocking ornie to hang on my tree!!! I love it!!! Thanks Brenda!!!

Here's the sheep

And here's the stocking

Brenda has monthly sales so if you have never signed up for her newsletter, you should so that you can see all the awesome things she makes. www.therustythimble.blogspot.com Until next time...

First I want to say a great big THANK YOU for making my giveaway a success. I had 43 entries and that's the largest giveaway I have ever had. I have also met some new friends that starting following my blog even though they didn't have to to enter the giveaway. YEA!!
Next I need help. When I get a new follower I like to check out their blog but I can't find some of the blogs that have joined. If it has a link attached, I can find it. But some do not have links attached. Can someone tell me how to find these blogs?
And now that I have teased you enough,LOL, my darling hubby drew the name out of a large bowl and the winner is....... Donna from Sweet Prairie Dwellings. Congrats Donna and if you will email me your address at valerie999@comcast.net I will get your goodies in the mail. I am not going to Donna's surprises until after she receives them so check back in a few days and you can see the rest.
I'm sorry everyone couldn't be a winner but to tell you the truth I just couldn't make that many.LOL But I will be having another giveaway closer to Christmas so keep checking back.
Until next time...


Ok Girls, I'm sorry that it is taking me so long to announe the winner but today has been crazy. I will announce the winner tonight around 9:30 and contact the winner. Thanks, Valerie
