I mentioned in a past post summer is here! Most of us want to spend more time outdoors enjoying a little summer fun! I know I do! One thing I have used for years to help keep from getting bit by mosquitos and other bugs is peppermint essential oil. I put a drop on each wrist. This seems to do the trick. Bugs hate peppermint oil!
One other thing, I have also used this oil to help keep away bugs naturally in my home. I put a few drops of the peppermint oil in a spay bottle with a little water (shake bottle well) and spray where I see ants etc. are coming inside. (Do not spray oil on fabric)
I have another use for the peppermint oil. I put one drop behind each ear to help keep me a little cooler in the heat. Two uses here…helps keeps the bugs away and helps keep you cooler!
I have used the Young Living Peppermint oil exclusively. I love Young Living products and have used them for many years! I hope you will try the peppermint oil. It smells great and I think you will really like it!
I hope you have a great time in your outdoor activities whether you are camping or just going for walks!

I have always loved antiques and vintage. I am fortunate to own many pieces of vintage and antique possessions given to me by my grandparents. I have some beautiful quilts, table clothes, fabrics etc. in my collection. I want to preserve some of the images in the things that I have loved for so many years. This notecard image is from one of the fabrics I have in my collection. I will be adding other images from this particular piece in the near future. I have this listed as a “Thank You” notecard but I will personalize the notecards for you with your name or another greeting in place of the “thank you”. The set of cards I have listed are for a set of ten, but if you would like more, you may contact me and I will give you a special amount just for you! These cards would not only be a great thing to keep for yourself for a special thank you to someone, but would also make a great unique gift for Easter,Mothers Day,birthday or anytime! Wonderful note cards for spring!
You have probably heard the saying, when life gives you lemons make lemonade. I just try to think positive as much as I can to make life easier to accept the things that go not quite according to plan. I know of a great book that can help you think positive that I would like to share with you. The book is The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. An international bestseller with over five million copies in print, The Power of Positive Thinking has helped men and women around the world to achieve fulfillment in their lives through Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s powerful message of faith and inspiration.
Being a painter, there is one more thing I thought to do. When life gives you lemons….paint them!!
