Coffee grounds really do make hydrangeas turn blue.
My hydrangea from Aldi, which used to be just a little stick, had pink flowers initially.
But putting coffee grounds around the base of the plant has definitely changed the color of the blooms. Yay!
(Yes, I drink coffee now. I’m surprised too!)
No-Ad makes a mineral sunscreen now
They sent me a sample bottle to try and I’d say this works as well as the Thinksport that has been our favorite, but it doesn’t smell as good (Thinksport has a great fruity scent!).
Also, while I think pretty much any mineral sunscreen is an improvement over chemical sunscreen, the No-Ad variety doesn’t rate as well on the EWG Skin Deep site as Thinksport does.
The No-Ad stuff is definitely cheaper than Thinksport, though, and it IS free of fragrance, parabens, alcohol, BPA, propylene glycol, retinyl palmitate, BHT, and dyes.
I am almost done with bed-painting.
I’ve been sharing the paint life on Instagram stories (it IS about as exciting as watching paint dry!).
Of course I will share before and after pictures here on the blog once I get the beds all put back together.
Even when I am done with the beds, I will have barely scratched the surface of my summer painting projects. Oy.
Hopefully I’ve gotten the painting ball rolling, though, and I’ll just keep on going now that I’ve started.
Sonia’s lamp and alarm clock are both from Amazon.
I got a question about those yesterday. The links in yesterday’s post should be working (I try to always link to things you guys might have questions about.)
I also added them to my Amazon list of favorite things (email subscribers, you may have to visit the blog to use that link!)
We’ve had the twin bell alarm clock since 2014, so I can confirm that it’s a good clock.
And Joshua’s had the black version of the Tomons desk lamp for years.We liked it so much, Sonia decided she’d like to have one in white.
And now I’m off to finish up a few odds and ends with the beds before I put them back in the girls’ rooms. Have a lovely Thursday, friends!
