I recently won a gorgeous handmade paper decor candle holder at a contest that Saving with Style was holding. I must say that I am very pleased with winning because this is now my all time favorite votive! All of her votive are decorated with paper from Japan, Thailand and India! Depending on the paper used, the lighting varies. For example, when light paper is used, the glow is brighter. Want a more subtle, romantic look? Order a darker holder. She has some really cute ones! You can find one for maybe the granddaughter, daughter, or sister in your life! I personally think the little bird one and the princess glows are adorable! I love how they look like paper lanterns but are actually glass!
I still can’t get over the fact how inexpensive these are either! See for yourself over at her shop Inspired With Love.
The weather outside is absolutely gorgeous! This is not a typical February day for Oregon! We’ve got blue skies and highs in the sixties, is this striking anyone else as odd? My husband, daughter, and I took a walk to the park, meanwhile contemplating and deciding what route we are taking on relocating in the next two months. We sat down a few days ago with a home loan rep and we saw were we stood there. We are hoping and praying on getting into a rental home that we pay less for than the $775 we pay here for a 2 bedroom apartment. I don’t like apartments and quite frankly, who does? We have noisy neighbors, smokers on the top and bottom floor of us, and then we have little kids knocking on our door all the time asking for money. Oh, we got a notification today that we have to get rid of our grill, so there goes our yummy BBQ dinners.
Well, we aren’t going to be living here in two months, that much is certain. So, I’m going to be praying pretty hard about what were are wanting in house. I mean goodness people, I want to be able to open my window to let fresh air in for my family not toxic disgusting cigarette smoke. I want to be able to enjoy were I am at and not have to worry about some dog from upstairs pissing on my head or my child while we sit on porch ( which I don’t already do due to the smoking neighbors).
So yeah, I’ve been looking a lot online and going to snag some papers in the neighboring towns. I would ask that those of you that will, would pray for us.
Do you have dry skin? Well, I’ve got the perfect product for you! I recently received the opportunity to try out Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion and I must say I’m very pleased with the results. My skin is naturally oily, so I don’t’ usually have a lot of problems with my skin becoming dry but as of lately, the cold harsh Oregon weather had been taking a toll on my face and hands! This lotion re-hydrated my skin, within just one use and my skin felt renewed, fresh, smooth, and so very soft, even my husband noticed the difference! If your husband notices the difference ladies than I say this product is a must!
Skin Md Shielding lotion works so as to have irritants kept – OUT, moisture – IN, making this
the perfect dry skin care product! Did I mention also that this lotion can be applied all over, not just on your face and hands!
Another wonderful thing about this lotion is not only does do every thing I mentioned before but it also has a Sunscreen block of SPF 15! I am a big fan of lotions that are equipped with sunscreen because I would rather not smell like suntan lotion all day when I am plan on being out in the sun! This product has a light and very pleasing smell. Most sunscreens leave me feeling greasy and this product does not.
My daughter has hypothyroidism and I’ve read that Thyroid Malfunctions Can Cause Extremely Dry Itchy Skin. I found that Skin MD Natural™ is an excellent dry skin treatment for these conditions. They even talk about it on their website and this won me over to deciding that always having a bottle around my house is a must.
