Natural Dyed Eggs

Natural dyed eggs

I’ve been wanting to color my eggs naturally for several years now. This is the first year I’ve tried and I wanted to share with you! I’ve read several websites with ideas and several of the items we don’t normally have in our house. So instead of going to buy items to use –  I decided to use only what I found in my house.

So I hunted around and came up with these 12 items to try…

Household items to dye eggs with

(Not everything is shown in this picture, after I started working I found more stuff.)

 

Paprika
Yellow Onion Skins – I only had about 3/4 of an onion left.
Red Wine
Green Tea
Grape Juice
Coffee
Strawberry Milk Mix
Red Cherry Juice
Green Cherry Juice
Emergen Vit. C Drnk mix – Pink Lemonade
Grape Jelly
Orange Nerds

Natural dyed eggs

My favorites are the Orange Nerds and the Red and Green Cherry Juice. Oh and the Green Tea and Coffee! The Strawberry Milk Mix came out pretty too.

All I did was mix the ingredients in a different cup with water (if needed) and added a few tablespoons of vinegar. It was really easy. Not all the eggs came out pretty and some came out weird (wine and grape juice).

 

Natural dyed Easter Eggs

There are so many ways to dye eggs. We will be doing a marble egg swirl in a few days with the kids.

Spring is here and that means new flowers and plants, maybe even a garden. But when getting all that ready don’t forget to keep your lawn healthy and looking good too! Bonus S is an existing lawncare product designed specifically for southern grass and weeds. We’ve used this product before but a new, more effective formula that’s guaranteed to clear out listed weeds including dollarweed and clover being delivered this spring. Unfortunatley it will only be available in tow areas of Florida, Ft. Myers and Jacksonville. Since I live in Jacksonville I was sent a package to use on my lawn. Last weekend I decided to spruce up the yard and tackle some projects I’ve been meaning to do.

The first step was to head over to Home Depot last weekend to get some plants and soil and there was Scott’s Lawn promoting the new Bonus S. They asked if I fertilized my lawn yet and I said yes. Then they mentioned to fertilize it again after six weeks using the Scotts Turf Builder and my grass would be beautiful by summer! Our home is fairly new and we’ve been trying to keep the grass green and healthy, but we have had a few patches of not so great grass. Bonus S But with this new and improved formula that’s guaranteed to clear out dollarweed and clover, I am more hopeful that our grass will stay weed free. This Bonus S controls 82% more types of weeds and is safe for more major southern grass types including St. Augustinegrass (including Floratam), bermudagrass(new), centipedegrass, zoysiagrass, seashore paspalum(new) and buffalograss(new). Look how nice and green it is! 119

 

You can purchase Bonus S at most major retailers in Ft. Myers and Jacksonville.

Dancing with Fireflies – Book Review

I received a copy of this book to review.

Dancing with Butterflies

Dancing with Fireflies by Denise Hunter was a wonderful read! It was a light romance with no mushy stuff, no mystery just a good old-fashioned novel. I really loved how the character were brought to life and interacted with each other. I could see this as a wonderful movie as well.

Dancing with Fireflies is about a young woman, Jade that returns home pregnant and no where else to turn. While home looking for  a job and a husband she finds herself falling in love with a childhood friend.

 

Jade returns home to Chapel Springs after years of protecting her fragile heart. Then along comes Daniel, making her long to dance again.

Creative and complicated, Jade McKinley felt like a weed in a rose garden growing up in Chapel Springs. When she left, she thought she’d never look back. But now, pregnant, alone, and broke, she has no other choice but to return.

The mayor of Chapel Springs, Daniel Dawson, has been an honorary member of the McKinley family for years. While his own home life was almost non-existent, Daniel fit right into the boisterous McKinley family. He’s loved Jade for years, but she always saw him as a big brother. Now that she’s back, his feelings are stronger than ever.

As Jade attempts to settle in, nothing feels right. God seems far away, she’s hiding secrets from her family, and she’s strangely attracted to the man who’s always called her “squirt.” Finding her way home may prove more difficult than she imagined.
