DIY Kitchen Cleaner

As many of you know, I'm allergic to almost everything under the sun. Kitchen cleaners, like 409, make me sneeze like crazy! So I found an alternative DIY cleaner.

Shannon's DIY Kitchen Cleaner

1. Fill a spray bottle with water.
2. Add 1 tablespoon full of dish washing detergent.
3. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (optional for a nice clean scent...use only with a non-scented dish detergent)

This will cut through any greasy mess in the kitchen. I love it because its so much cheaper than always buying cleaning sprays and the lemon juice smells lovely. :)

Linens and Other Things

Hello Sweetpeas,

This week has been quite a busy one! My husband and I took almost everything out of my booth at The Depot and added a bunch of new items. (For those of you that don't know, The Depot is an antique mall in Concord, NC).

Here are some photos:

Victorian Hat Box and Linen Basket

Vintage Plates and Shabby Doves

Shabby White Picture Frames and a Vintage Apron
Vintage Linen Basket full of Doilies
Vintage 1930s-40s Pot Holders. I have a pair of these.
Everything in these pictures is still for sale. If interested, please leave a comment for shipping prices. If you haven't been to The Depot, visit there website for directions. They are one of the largest antique malls and have almost everything. You'll enjoy just browsing around. :)

New Vintage Etsy Banners

Hello Lovelies,

I've been busy this past month creating some vintage style Etsy Banners. They look like illustrations found in children's books from the 1950s. I love them! Here are some photos of my latest creations:

So what do you think? If you have any ideas for my next collection of Etsy banners, please leave a comment. :) To purchase any of these banners, please visit my Etsy shop.

Does Your Blog Have a Business Card? My blog does!

How do you know what to say in a business card that isn't for a business but a blog instead? I was wondering that same question a few days ago, when it came time to order more business cards.

I found the greatest business card tutorial at momcomm. Its called The Guide to Blogger Business Cards. Her tutorial covers everything such as what to put on a business card, where to order them, and various examples of other people's blogger cards to inspire you. Her site is really worth reading!

The thing that inspired me the most was adding a QR Code to my business card. Not having a smart phone myself, (I just can't stand the idea that if I had a smart phone, then my phone would be smarter than me!) I've never thought about QR Codes before. My new business card features a code I created myself at: QR Code Generator.

And now for the unveiling of my new business card:

I hope this inspires you to create your own business card. Please feel free to leave a comment and share your own business card with us! :)

Guess what ladies? I've just stumbled across another great blog gadget. Its called a Hello Bar.

It is the new bar at the top of all my blog pages and by the way it comes in an oh so pretty shade of pink. Or at least i edited mine to be pretty in pink. You can make your own hello bar what ever color you choose. You simply add whatever text you want you it to announce to your visitors and add a link of your choice.

Here's the link to their site:

I hope you ladies enjoy adding one to your own blogs! :)
