Weekend Finds

 I found these little gems today while I was at hobby lobby with the girls. I have been looking for knobs for the medicine cabinet and linen cabinet that I am making for my remodel project. They look amazing on the windows and I can’t wait to get the cabinets finished. I also scored the liner for the medicine cabinet and the feet for the linen cabinet along with hinges.  I can’t wait to finish them.
I received several of these squalor mason jars from a neighbor and last week I finally figured out what I want to do with them. Tooth brush and makeup brush holders for me and the girls. They are rustic and unique and I think they will be perfect with my window cabinets.

Today as I was leaving the office the incoming shift took a 911 call for an older gentleman that had been in a motorcycle accident. I briefly listened to the call information and when on my way. As I came in to town I caught this photo of AirVac lifting (I was parked when I took the photo don't flip out). I don't usually get to witness this end of the call. I am usually the one on the other side of the mike/phone. For those of us that live in rural communities AirVac is something we depend on when there is a medical emergency. Our amazing crew of volunteer First responders/Firefighters and our Paramedics/EMT's/work together with AirVac to take care of those who are severely injured.  If you ever have the chance to shake the hand of AirVac pilot or that of an EMT/Paramedic/FireFighter/First Responder you should. Thank these men and women who sacrifice so much to help those in need often times for little or no pay.

Yes that’s a live un capped wire in the wall of my bathroom. It was just hanging out in there when I tore down the wall. This should be on everyone's don't do list when doing DIY bathroom remodeling projects.

We have finally made it to the insulation installation phase of the project. I hope to be in the tile installation phase of the project in the next week or so.

Wax melt project

I decided to try making my own wax melts. I used one part soy wax and one part paraffin wax. Then I used some various fragrance oils from my soap making supplies to make these cute little wax melts for my wax warmer. I have Vanilla Marshmallow Pumpkin, Amish Harvest, and Apple Bourbon. Some times I wish we had scratch and sniff computers.
