This Week

Containers can really help expand your garden space. I'm a big fan of "use what you have" so I'm growing sweet potatoes in a rather unusual container this year.

I switched from commercial shampoo to shampoo bars about a year ago. And I bought those shampoo bars online all this time. Have you checked out the prices of shampoo bars? Wow, you'd think they were made of gold! So I finally made my own...

  1. Good morning, Kathi! Thank you for hosting. I had some trouble linking up - not sure what happened - so if my post shows up several times... sorry.

    1. Thank you, Vickie! I'm sorry you had trouble linking up today, but your post only showed up once. I have it set up so that you can delete your own links if you need to, in case you ever have a problem in the future (but I hope you don't!) Have a great weekend.

  2. Thank you for hosting once more. Enjoy a lovely week!

    1. Thank you for joining us, Marilyn!
