Cheerful Things

There are some new cheerful pieces hanging in my home (kitchen) right now and I just had to share them with all of you! All but one of these prints are by a very creative and talented artist named Nikki McClure. I love her work! The top picture is the first piece of hers I fell in love with. Isn't it just the life of a homemaker? I can't tell you how many times that has happened to me. Little fingers, and some big just want to "try a piece". Again, love it!  

This is also just so sweet. I love the look of Fly Agaric mushrooms already, so this piece was an obvious choice for me.  

 I love the bright green color in this piece, it's so fun!  

Now, these two sweet little owls came from the Etsy shop, Trafalgars Square. I couldn't resist! It is just too darn adorable!

Well, I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at what's been bringing my a little cheer each morning when I enter my kitchen for my morning coffee. Have a wonderful rest of the week to all!

Spring Cleaning Spray Recipe!

Natural, homemade cleaners are nothing new to most of us, but I ran across an "all purpose" cleaning spray recipe today (website below) that had the most wonderful essential oil combination so I just had to share it here with you. 

All Purpose Cleaning Spray

* 32 oz Water
*1 Tbs White Vinegar
*10 drops each of Tea Tree essential oil
and Lemon essential oil
(I did not use the eucalyptus oil as written because I am currently out of that EO)

*Add all ingredients to a large spray bottle, shake for a bit and you're good to go!

I just LOVE the scent combination of tea tree EO and lemon EO. It smells so fresh and clean, perfect for this time of year.
