10 Uses for Vinegar

I always like to find cheap ways to do things. I use vinegar to clean my windows all the time. My proportions of vinegar to water aren't the same as in the video-- I use 2 parts of vinegar to 1 part water with a drop or 2 of Dawn dish soap and it streaks less.

Take care everyone...

"Mork & Mindy" Reunion

A favorite show of mine in the late 70s was Mork and Mindy. Mork (played by Robin Williams) was from a distant planet. He landed in Boulder, CO and Mindy (played by Pam Dawber) took Mork under her wing to teach about humans. I recently read that Robin Williams and Pam Dawber will be reunited later this year for an episode of William's current sitcom The Crazy Ones.

Here is the pilot episode for Mork and Mindy:

A Wee Bit of Humor...

I laughed and laughed when I saw this video clip. The language is a little coarse at times so if you're offended by that I'm letting you know ahead of time. Youtube has bunches of Mrs. Brown videos, some full episodes if you're interested in seeing more of this show.

Take care...

Monday's Link to Free Crochet Pattern (13 January 2014)

Today's free pattern is for the Little Super Hero Blanket. This is a cute blanket for a youngster who is into the cartoon and comic super heroes. I really like this one because it is a round blanket.

Have a great week everyone!

My Current WIP

This is my current wip. This is for a dear friend of mine who isn't feeling well lately. She's a great person and very generous to others so this time she is going to be on the receiving end. :) This pattern is from one of my crochet magazines and I will post the pattern information on a later post in case someone is interested.

The color isn't quite true in this picture. It's just too darned cold to take pictures outside.

Stay warm!

Monday's Link to Free Crochet Pattern (06 January 2014)

Hard to believe that 2013 is kaput already. It seems the older I get the faster the years go by. Wasn't I a 20-something girl just a year or two ago??? My mirror and old bones say otherwise. :)  Anyway, today's pattern is for a vintage afghan that would look great today too. You can find it here.

I hope everyone is staying warm. Take care...
