Random Loveliness of the Week


I am SO trying this the next time we have ice on the ground.

Sure sock monkeys are cute but sock piggies are better!

Need to smile?

I must try this DIY.

*le sigh* I want to vacation here.

Vinegar makes nail polish last longer? Who knew?!

I love this walk down cereal memory lane.

Wish I could attend this.

    1. The vinegar one may have come from Pinterest but not the others. Those came from web surfing.

      Let me know if it works! :) I haven't gotten to try it yet.

  12. JuJu - that penguin walk on ice is referred to here, in a place that has this kind of ice from November through March as the "old man shuffle". Skip penguins. Walk like your grandpa.
