Essential Oil storage

Recently, I have been acquiring some essential oils.  Having been a nay-sayer for years about essential oils, I am now having to “eat crow” and admit that they are wonderful.  I have had a hard time trying to find a place to put them all.  I grew tired of having to pick up each and every bottle to see the label on them.  I saw this great idea on Pinterest where a spice rack was used.  So, I headed out to TJ Maxx to find a spice rack to use.  I just so happen to get there on the day that they don’t have a spice rack.  (Of course)

While I was looking around, I had an epiphany.  I saw a bamboo cutlery tray.  I found a bottle of oil in the store and took it back to use to measure the cutlery tray.  I found one large enough, and headed to the register.  cutlery essential oils2

I am happy with it….  and I am going to have to find another one soon.  🙂


Happy Belated Mother’s Day!!

Well, I have to say that I have had better Mother’s Day days.  LOL…  I had to finish a baby crib, rocking chair, and ottoman for my daughter’s nursery.  I picked up my son from college to come spend the day with us, and cleaned my house.  With that said… I just had a scare with my grandmother being in the hospital.  She was released on Saturday, after a few days in there.  I am SO GRATEFUL that she is ok…  I don’t know what I would have done if something terrible had happened to her.  I love that lady soooo much.  She is awesome!!!
