#tiptuesday Winterize Your Hands

So… my hands have been getting rather dry lately… the skin has been peeling & rolling up, cracking around my cuticles & finger tips… just getting those regular old man hands as I like to call’em. hehe. Usually when this sort of thing starts happening to my body I think, “there’s gotta be some kinda DIY or home remedy I can try to solve this!”

Guess what?? There is! Jill, from The Prairie Homestead, gives the following recipe for a DIY Gardener’s Hand Butter:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Cup Shea Butter
  • 1/8 Cup Sweet Almond Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Beeswax
  • 10 Drops Myrrh Essential Oil
  • 10 Drops Cedarwood Essential Oil

I’ll tell you what, this stuff sounds great! As we speak, I’m trying to get these ingredients locally & I’ll let you kow how this butter junk works after I try it!!

P.S. Coconut Oil is always little Ms. Faithful when you need a handy dandy moisturizer… Until Tomorrow…

-XOXO,

Myra’s

Decorating for the Holidays

Hey guys sorry I missed y’all on Friday! I hope y’all had a great weekend 🙂 Mine flew by ….per usual! I did enjoy sewing my very first project though…

SewingApron

It’s an apron 🙂 I feel like I might be a natural lol. I really enjoyed learning how to sew, and to tell you the truth I have my next 8-15 projects lined out already haha… it might be a bit ambitious but I’m off to an encouraging start!

So… since I missed out on giving y’all a few Holiday decorating tips on Friday I’m going to show you a few links that I thought were pretty great. The first is 26 Party Hacks for the Holidays, some of my favorites are #’s 13, 19, & 24! Who knew you needed to bake the bugs out of pine cones before you decorated them??

This site gives 20 Fall Décor Ideas for the Home using a neutral color palette. I love me some neutrals so I can definitely see myself implementing a few of these ideas… I love the white pumpkins and acorns on the mantel, coffee mugs, fireplaces lit, and lots of warm cozy blankets!! Oh my goodness I wish I had a fireplace to toast my footsies!

Oh and I know I mentioned a smell good on #13 of the Party Hacks, but I found this on Pinterest and I want to try it too!!

Smells like the Holidays

Happy Holidays y’all, don’t forget to come see us at Myra’s this weekend for Small Business Saturday! Until Tomorrow…

-XOXO,

Myra’s
