All over the city of Manchester, NH we have these beautiful vines growing on the sides of buildings!

Today I am sharing a recipe of a different sort. ENJOY! Not edible!!!!

Cherry Bubble Bath

1/2 cup unscented mild shampoo
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp. salt (regular table salt is fine)
15 drops cherry fragrance oil for bodies (you can substitute with different fragrances)
decorative jar/bottle

Pour shampoo into a bowl and add water. Stir gently until well mixed. Add salt and stir until mixture thickens. Add cherry fragrance oil and place in decorative bottle. This can also be used as a body wash. Makes a nice gift too!
Wow that is a very expensive tub!!!!!!! Any tub will do. : )

Today's focus word is connect. Connect meaning put one object with another. Connect the dots....I am connected at least I like to beleive I am. My connections include art and gardening two of my favorites. My connections are growing. I nurture my connections. In turn I feel positive!

0 (number)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Zero, written 0, is both a number and the numerical digit used to represent that number in numerals. It plays a central role in mathematics as the additive identity of the integers, real numbers, and many other algebraic structures. As a digit, 0 is used as a placeholder in place value systems. In the English language, 0 may be called zero, oh, null, nil, "o", zilch, zip or nought, depending on dialect.

So if I have zero sales lately it still has meaning! It means I need to makes changes and that is a good thing.

It is another HOT day to be almost 90 first thing this morning. Thank goodness we have AC. I was up early watering all the plants. I don't think we got any rain last night. I need to go downtown today to the PO. Not with sales unfortunately but with goodies for my swap partners. If you are looking for a fun way to meet people all over the world check out you decide which swaps you want to join, some are USA only which costs less than international shipping. So far it has been fun and fair! I am collecting postcards and sending PC's to others. Some of the swaps are email only! The idea is to be creative and share. There is a rating system with hearts that you can give your partner if they send you a really nice package, great email or a good postcard/letter handwritten.

I was the recepient of a $1.00 bag from a yard sale this past Saturday. In the bag was a beautiful variegated purple (my fave color) handmade afghan doesn't smell looks almost new (great for the harsh winters up here in NH), a hardback book 1997 The Ghost Danielle Steel (I have not read it....yet), a lovely Nove Made in Italy ceramic green leaf plate which is numbered and has value, a 1986 NE Patriots mug, collectible (my older son has already claimed it), and a NY Jets NFL mug nobody wants ....YET! So there I will be this next Winter.....wrapped up in my new afghan blanket, my fine Italian made plate holding sweets by my side, sipping something warm from my NY Jets mug... reading The Ghost as snow gently falls past my window. Stay cool this summer and keep on the sunny side!


  1. Hello Glenna - it will take me a while to recognize the look of your new blog, but I like it. It's light and airy. Hope you're having a wonderful first day of summer! I'm on my summer schedule, going to bed early, getting up early - when it's dark still so that Gizzy and I can walk at daybreak! It seems to be working out well.
    Happy First Day of Summer!

  2. Hi, like the new look. The recipe sounds great, I love the smell of cherries.
