Flylady’s Rubba Scrubba

We recently went to a farm for a picnic and of course…it started raining!  We still enjoyed ourselves but things got a little muddy. The inside of the car was a mess! I was dreading having to clean everything. Today was a sunny day so I thought I would just hose the shoes down on the driveway but it didn’t really work too well. There was still mud and grass stuck to the bottoms of the shoes. I used my hands a little bit but that was kind of gross!  I tried a rag which just seemed to smear everything around. Then I remembered I had this rubba scrubba brush that I ordered from

I scrubbed the shoes under running water and it was great because the rubba scrubba is gentle enough that I wasn’t worried about ruining the shoes and it did the job of getting the mud off. I would recommend having one (or 2 or 3 even) around the house. I think there are endless uses for it.

DIY Glitter Vases

imageI bought these clear glass vases from Dollar Tree and painted them using Martha Stewart Multi-surface glitter paint. It took several coats to get it opaque but I’m happy with the results. I’d like to try using the acrylic paints (without glitter) using some bright spring colors!

Not a bad deal…$1 for the vase and one bottle of paint costs about $2 on sale.
