You're cute, but you scare me.

Ellen and her man pulled a Jim and Pam when they bought their home from her in-laws three years ago. With it came not a creepy clown picture superglued to the wall (if that makes no sense to you whatsoever, you probably don't religiously watch/memorize The Office likes I do) but a 9-foot buffet!
Yes, NINE feet! Wow. It was nice, but just not Ellen's style. But how can you get rid of a 9-foot buffet? You can't. So she switched it up a little with a two-toned paint job, which looks amazing and you can read more about it right HERE.
So Kate took a cue from a piece she liked in the Pottery Barn catalog and decided to recover them in a warm and cozy paisley. Adds more color and texture but still coordinates with the rest of the room, I'd say that's pretty much perfect! See more HERE.

So she preserved the memories, but changed it up to suit her style and I think it looks amazing! She really made it her own! (I feel like Paula Abdul when I say that. *blank stare, seal clap*)

I'm a big picnic fan. I even asked for a picnic table for my birthday. I think I like picnics because they are so easy to clean up after! No dishes, no mopping the kitchen floor, yay for picnics!
But you know what I'm not all for? Splinters in my behind. Does this before picnic bench look like anything you would want to rest your rear on for any amount of time? No. What is the point of having a time-saving, clean-up-saving picnic if you are going to be spending the rest of the evening getting intimate with a pair of tweezers?
Heather remedied that problem right quick with more than a sanding and paint job: she padded and upholstered the bench and even weatherproofed it with clear plastic! Looks fantastic! Check it out on her blog HERE. Well done Heather! My bum approves.

This is one of Shaklee's most popular products, the super-concentrated, award-winning, all-natural "Get Clean." That little bottle on the right makes 48 gallons of cleaner! That's equal to 5,824 bottles of Windex!
See the recipes on the bottles above? 1-2 drops of the H2 concentrate = an entire bottle of window cleaner? I gave it a whirl, and it works great. I've already burned through several bottles (I'm a cleaner!) and the amount of concentrate in the bottle has barely budged. (pssst, it's also a freaking bargain!)
Absolutely zero of their products are ever tested on animals too.
These are a couple of the other products I've tried, the Vita-Lea daily vitamins and the Meadow Blend Bar, which sounds like a tasty energy snack, but is in fact soap, although don't call it soap, because it is soap-free!
But honest to goodness truth here, I haven't had a single one since I started using both of these products. And I'm pretty sure the non-soap soap isn't even meant for your face, but it's gentle enough and all-natural, and I'm lazy, so what the heck, I use it. I don't know if it's a combination of the soap and the high-potency vitamins swirling around in my bloodstream or what, but that's my testimonial yo.
Shaklee does have an entire line of beauty products (including cleansers actually meant for your face): Healthy Beauty, along with Healthy Home, Healthy Nutrition and Healthy Weight.
So if you are interested in these products, it might be worth it to consider becoming a distributor. It's easy and inexpensive to get started, especially with the 20% rebate! Just contact Pam, either through her website or email firstname.lastname@example.org. She's been doing this for 35 years; she knows her stuff!
And isn't this one beautiful? Look at that detail! No, really look at it! I demand that you smoosh your face against your monitor and drink in that delicious detail! The dang thing is gorgeous. From Cindy at Cameras and Chaos.

Barbra from My Pocketbook and Me was probably tired of asking herself these questions, so she reupholstered the chair in a demure damask. Lovely! But now we will never know the rest of the Epic Fabric Saga. It's probably better that we don't.
