If you do stuff, stuff gets done.......
Photo was taken around Christmas 1962 when I had just turned 5. That is my pretty mom behind me. She made the cross stitched clock on the buffet. The stocking with my name on it was made her mother and delivered to me before my first Christmas even though I was not even a week old. My apron was made by great grandmother. I come from a long line of homemakers who did stuff and got lots done.

Product review

Greatly Blessed is a sweet blog with lots of  predict reviews, coupons and giveaways.  This link is  for a Contest I won there for this great Argan oil.
I had never heard of Argan oil but my daughter has been using a few healing oils so I was really interested in this one.  When this oil arrived, I offered it to her and I thought she was going to take it but she didn't so I started using it, mostly on my hands and cuticles, sometimes on my feet.
My hands get very dry with all the cleaning and washing I do.
After using this Argan oil for just a few days, my hands were honestly softer than they had been in years.  It truly works better than any hand cream I've ever tried, and I have tried lots of them.

The bottle has an eye dropper and I just rub a few drops of oil onto my hands just before I go to sleep.  It absorbs quickly and has not stained our bedding or my nightclothes, I was a little worried about oil stains but I guess it sinks into my skin so fast, nothing rubs off to leave stains.






I talk about lots of frugal things but I do splurge sometimes, one is for manicures and I just got one today.  This red polish is quite patriotic looking and just makes me smile.

I also won a book on a rather new blog called Femme Frugality.  Link to Femme Frugality
I have not got it yet but it looks like a book that is right up my alley.


Lots of blogs have giveaways and contests. The smaller the number of entries, the better are the odds of winning so if I see a smaller blog with a contest for something I like, I usually enter.

  1. Congratulations! I only enter a very few giveaways since I don't need much. Usually they are for some crafting material or a book. I can always use those. I'm glad the Argan Oil is working for you. I haven't tried any pure oil only the stuff they use at hair salons called Moroccan Oil which I believe is "dressed up" argan oil. If I ever buy some I will go for the pure stuff.

  3. Lovely, lovely nails! How fun! I've never heard of that oil! I'll have to check into that. Housework is hard on our hands, isn't it? I've had the best luck with coconut oil but will check this out, too!

  5. You can use Argan Oil on your hair, it helps with the frizzies. I had a sample spray bottle sent to me. When I used it, it did not leave an oily feeling, just soft and smooth. It was like a dry oil. I think I'll have to look for some in the stores.

  7. The oil looks really nice! Also enjoyed your frugal post! My one splurge is my nails, too. After all these years of raising a large family, cleaning, cooking, etc. it's nice to treat myself to something that makes my hardworking hands pretty!
