spice

Hello dear ones! 
Has anyone heard about toothpaste in powder form? Im sure some have and today, I'd like to share with you my own homemade. Ive been doing this for a while now and Im sure you're wondering what good does it do/ Everything! Its all natural and has no chemicals. My girls havent had a bad tooth in years and the trips to the dentist are just checkups. :) 

After scrubbing down with this toothpaste I know that Im not ingesting Triclosan, which is a chemical that if in contact with chlorinated water (and that would be everyone's tap water) produces chloroform. That's right, the stuff that we see knocks people out and in prolonged contact, will kill... in your mouth! Then, we have the main ingredient in toothpastes, calcium carbonate. This is basically ground up snail shell and instead of cleaning your teeth, it scratches into the enamel creating more places for bacteria to stop and grow in. There are loads more, that are too much to mention and horribly dangerous so... why not switch? 

Here's how I make mine:

1/2 cup of baking soda
A few star anise pods, ground up to a nice powder. 
A few cloves, again ground up
Around 4-6 drops of tea tree oil.

I grind up my anise and cloves to a powder, now, these are strong tastes, so it depends on how much you like. Cloves are antiseptics, antimflammatory and antibacterials and they make your breath smell nice! Same with Anise, its antifungal, antimflammatory and helps kill bacteria that cause flu 
(if you need a breath refreshener, just chew on a clove or anise, they BOTH do the job naturally!)  
Then I add the powdered spices to the baking soda and drop in a couple of drops of tea tree oil and mix everything well. You just take a small spoon and pop some on your hand and then scrape it off with a wet toothbrush and wash away for about 3 minutes and VOILA!!!! I then take a capful of hydrogen peroxide and swoosh it in my mouth for a quick and safe way to whiten teeth and clean up the tongue! (plus any mouth sores, if present)

Do you have any interesting alternative ways of doing the job? :)

Dears, I'd like you to pray for our dear friend Sonya, from Counting my Blessings. Her whole family needs support and prayer now.

Thank you all for dropping in and leaving sweet comments!

Witam Was moi mili!
Czy ktos z Was slyszal o pascie do zebow w proszku?Zapewne tak,ja chcialam sie  podzielic z Wami  jak ja sama robie w domu od lat wlasnie taka proszkowa paste.Jakie ma zalety? Same jest naturalna i bez chemi,moje dzieci nie maja plab ani popsutych zebow ,jedyna wizyta u dentysty co pol roku to przeglad.
Po wyszorowaniu takim proszkiem zebow mam pewnosc ,ze nie wchlaniam w siebie triclosan ktory w polaczeniu z woda chlorowana tworzy chloroform. Pierwszy skladnik wiekszosci past to calcium carbonate, zgniecione muszelki slimakow. Ktore wdrapoja sie w enamel zebow, a nie czyszcza, robiac wiecej miejsca dla bakterii. 

Jak ja robie swoj proszek?
pol szklanki baking sody
anyz kilka kwiatkow
kilka gozdzikow
Tea tree oil,4 krople 
Anyz i gozdziki scieram w mozdziezu na proszek dodaje sode i tea tree oil ,mieszam dokladnie i wsypuje do sloiczka,niewielka ilosc wsypuje na mokra szczoteczke do zebow i myke ok 3minut ,po umyciu plukam woda utleniona kilka minut co daje mi naturalne i bezpieczne wybielanie ,zabija nieprzyjemny zapach i swietnie czysci jezyk.Gozdziki sa przeciw zapalne,bakteryjne i grzybiczne,Anyz ma te same wlasciwosci +jest naturalnym antyseptykiem.
A moze ktos z Was kochani chcial by sie podzielic swoimi naturalnymi kosmetykami,czyscidlami :)

Burtonish cages

Hello my dear friends!
I was playing around with wires and I came up with these Tim Burtonish cages because I love his movies! :) 
They rusted rather quickly because I kept spraying them with vinegar and I like the way they turned out. I want to make a bigger one but it will take a lot longer because it has to be more precise and detailed. 
I'm thrilled that Toronto temperatures are going down again from almost 30 to 10 because I love the cold and rain! :)

I know most of you are waiting for summer so that's what I wish for you, lots of sunshine! 
Thank you all for your wonderful comments!

Witajcie mili moi!

Easetr egg and my love

Hello dear ones! 
Its getting warmer and warmer here! The sun is shining and soon Easter will come! So I thought its high time to get started on some eggs, in my favorite colours! 

My beloved 'too needs a beak trimming since the little bugger doesnt do anything else other than sitting around on me. She doesnt want to chew on branches or nuts like any other parrot should, which keeps a beak in good shape :) Pusia is different, the only time shes having fun is when she's trampling on my head. So she's  waiting for a visit to the vet and I have NO idea hew hes gonna do it since my birdie is evil to anyone not me. In one second she goes from a parrot to a T-rex. And she looks so sweet! :) 


I wish you the best day and thank you all for the wonderful comments!

Witajcie mili ludziska
Coraz cieplej coraz to mocniej sloneczko grzeje i juz nie dlugo Wielkanoc.Wiec pomyslalam sobie,ze najwyzsza pora zabrac sie za jajka.Zrobilam kilka pianek  w moich ukochanych kolorach.

Moja ukochana papuga musi miec obciety dziobek bo zaraza jedna oprocz wysiadywania na mnie o kazdej pozrze dnia i nocy niczym bawic sie niechce,tz rozgryzac drewienka ,galazki lub orzeszki jak kazda przyzwoita papuga robi i tym samym zdzierac swoj dziob:) Moja jest inna i jedyna zabawa i najmilszym czasem dla niej jestem ja. .Wiec czeka ja wizyta u  weterynarza i tylko niewiem jak on to zrobi bo moj ptaszek nie akceptuje nikogo poza mna i w jedej chwili z papugi robi sie t-rex.A wyglada tak slodko:)
Kochani najserdeczniej Was pozdrawiam i dziekuje za mile slowa.Duzo slonca dla Was sle!

Glass inkwell

Hello dear ones! 
The glass inkwell with the feather I made for the sweet JoAnne, from Vintage Dragonfly. 
I was supposed to make a nafta lamp, but I could not find a glass piece for the wick to make a lamp. I hope JoAnne likes it like this and that I got what she likes right. 
I got a beautiful tin cake form from dear Sonya and I altered one into a Easter piece. :) 

I have something to tell you, 
KONY 2012 (Sign your name in the petition)is a story of young children from Uganda who are forced into prostitution, killing of their own families, and joining an army that slaughters others. All by force! Joseph Kony created an army of more than 30 thousand children. The point of the Kony 2012 movement is to make this well known and to make Kony "famous" to find him and stop him! We can help in catching this monster. Paste a linked picture into your blog, watch the short film and get involved! Lets help those children! The picture on the bottom links to the short film.

Thank you all so much for your support and sweet comments! 

Witam Wszystkich bardzo serdecznie

Sweet Birthday

Hello dear ones, 

It was my birthday yesterday and I wanted to show you guys what I got from my girls and my youngests boyfriend.  :) 
Each girl did something different but handmade and those gifts are the most precious and love filled. 
Magda made me a mohair teddy bear, the first time in her life. The bear is gorgeous and is now included in my collection. :)
Vanda took her boy friend and they made me a birdhouse~ Of course, Coner's dad helped out in the cutting and putting together. The birdhouse is so big I don't quite know where to put it. 
To top it off, Magda baked me a rose cake that she decorated with real edible rose petals. She also baked blackforest cupcakes, which is my favorite cake ever! 
I invited all of my guest for an elaborate dinner. :)
All three made me so very happy and made the day superb! Thank you my dears!

Egg necklace

Hello dear ones!


In my last post I showed you glass beads that I bought, mainly because of the tiny bottles :) So I made an egg necklace from a previous design. That was work for a life sentenced prisoner! Phew! The beads were all over the place, falling out of my tongs and just all everywhere! Then when I'd catch one, the glue would dry and I'd have to do it over! But... I finished! 


Long ago I bought a hanger at a garage sale and it waited for me for quite a while to finish but I did that too! I repainted, added a "Hers" sign and voila! A  hanger for my girl! 
The flowers in my home are in bloom and it smells so nice! Like spring! Behind my window theres snow and rain and the next two days arent looking peachy. :)


Well dearies, Thank you for popping in and leaving sweet comments! Thank you all so much and I wish you each a stunning weekend!
