it snapped with very little force and I was concerned that Mr. HB had sliced his hand.
He was fine but the goblet was a goner.
I have a thing about thick walled wine glasses.
I really truly hate them!
I've tried to like them but I cannot abide the width when sipping from them.
We have owned some for years and I have finally donated those that have been taking up space in the cupboard.
I feel so much better now because they annoyed me every time I opened the door.
De-cluttering is so wonderful...
We have some thin crystal glasses which feel great in the hand and are very light to hold.
They are very fragile and so I hand wash them very carefully.
I use foamy cleaners that we bought from Williams Sonoma in Vancouver.
Use lots of soap and hot water
place on a tea towel and let air dry.
makes titanium reinforced stemware which is much more durable
and they are whisper thin.
These gloves have a ridges which grip so the glasses do not slip out of my hot soapy hands.
Our farmhouse porcelain sink is not very glass friendly
many a chip has happened by accident
and I do not use any chipped china or glassware.
It repels me.
Chips in crystal and china are to me
what Faux Fuchsia feels about chipped nail polish.
The weather has turned very cold, there was ice in the birdbath this morning.
The grass is frozen and the front stairs were treacherous.
I hung on tight to the handrail on the way down.
The skies are a beautiful clear blue and the trees silhouetted against that backdrop look amazing.
Outdoor lights twinkling in the icy and frosty nightlight
in the Humble Bungalow front yard.
I am so happy that I purchased the down puffer coat this fall
I am toasty and warm on my walks.
My face is the coldest part of me when I walk.
I have rosacea
and cold air exacerbates the skin condition.
It is troublesome,
as the skin becomes quite pink and stays that way.
Products that have alcohol or with hazel are to be avoided as they irritate and inflame the skin.
Gentle natural ingredients are the way to go.
I spoke with the esthetician at the local Pharmasave
who coincidentally suffers from Rosacea.
She has taken many workshops and has spoken to the skin care representatives about their products
with the hope of finding a line that helps her skin look it's best.
She suggested that I try the Sea Buckthorn Salve
it was 1/3 rd. the price of any other product for Rosacea on the shelf.
I am testing it out and will be returning to report back to her in a few weeks.
It is rich in natural oils
goes on smoothly
imparts a glow
and has no scent to speak of...
Rebekah over at Cupcake Caramel
is having a similar problem.
I wonder if this salve would help settle her skin...
I think I'll let her know about this product
maybe it'll help her rash.
Hope that your week is off to a good start.
