Happy Hot Saturday!'s HOT here in Arkansas........92 right now with heat warnings and fire danger and wind that helps dry things out even more! LOL!  But.....I finished my ripple throw/blanket.  I know, you thought I finished it already and I did but I decided to put an edging on it.  So there, I'm done now showing off my ripple unless of course it accidentally gets included in a picture but of course I can't be held responsible for that!
When I went to Walmart the other day I picked up a few NEW products that I have never used before....

I have used the color catcher before and it is wonderful and nice to have on hand!  I don't use it all the time but if I'm washing something that I've never washed before it's a godsend!  I ran out and washed a new rug I had gotten in with some other older rugs.  Whoops!  Now all my red and white rugs are now red and pink.
I've used an HE washing machine cleaner before but I could only get it at Lowes which is an hour away.  Tide has one now that I can get at Walmart (1/2 hour away).   If I had to do it all over again.....I would NOT get a frontloader/HE washing machine or dryer....I'm just sayin'
I have not used the magic eraser for tub or sink cleaning so I am looking forward to that.  I have little "elbow grease" left with my arthritis so any help I can get is appreciated.  Have you used any of these products and what did you think of them if you did?
I went to a greenhouse near Wal-Mart looking for some hen and chicks and different varieties but they had none.  But they did have some "walk on" plants that you can plant in-between path stones and I'm going to use them for my fairy garden! 

Aren't they lovely?  I did manage to get one hen and chicks at Wal-Mart but I really want to start a collection of them and I'm not getting anywhere!  Some of the ones my blogger friends have posted are so pretty and all different kinds in different shapes and colors.
I hope you had a great Saturday and tomorrow I'll be cooking and decorating for Memorial Day!  What are your plans for the Holiday weekend?


  1. Love the vivid colors on your blanket. You will love the magic erasers. They are like magic.

  2. No heat here in No. Minnesota. Cold and rainy. Still have planting to do and cleaning. I have tried the magic erasers and I like them. Not the color catchers though.

  3. I do like the magic eraser but haven't seen the other products here. Hubby hasn't been too please that I've ruined a couple of his new Gap shirts lately. I can't help it if colors run sometimes -- during the summer, we only have one temperature for the water and it is HOT! So if you have anything that should be washed on a cool cycle, tough luck. We only have front loading washers and dryers here. If you want to buy the top loading, it will cost and arm and a leg. Have a great weekend. Tammy
