One Seam Pajama Pants Tutorial

Distressing with candle wax (um, *before* you paint.) I care about this because I bought some frames today and they have lovely texture but a horrific brassy gilded color, that needs to go home to the 90's.

My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!

Fly repellent - pinner said "I had to repin this again for you to see. YES IT WORKS! Oh my, it looks hokie but our temps have been upper 90's and no flies in my back yard have been spotted. I spoke with a women who grew up on a dairy farm and she swears by it. She said they used 5 pennies. Go figure."

Cinnamon in the Sandbox - It keeps the bugs away! I knew cinnamon repelled ants... but I never thought of this! Brilliant!

Five pillow cases sewn together, insert pillows. Taa-daa!
