I have a new Bestie!

      It's: Barkeepers Friend! I can't believe I'm just now trying this stuff! I used it a couple of weeks ago to clean the tub and it worked like Magic Eraser! I like my friend better! It cleans stainless steel pots and pans like nothing I've ever tried before! I couldn't believe how new they looked after cleaning them with my new friend! And now the stove top!!! It was embarrassing how dirty it was! Now it looks almost brand new again! I didn't think I could use Barkeepers on the stove-top until I read the label again! Oh yes you can! I am really excited to find something that makes my toil a little easier! If you've never tried Barkeeper's Friend, now's the time!

      I didn't mean for the week to get so far along before I wrote another post! I'm still painting the door frame and door in the powder room and laundry room. I don't get to work on them everyday, and have decided to paint over what I just painted! The color on the outside looks SO much better than the color I just painted the inside of the bathroom door! Now, I'll have to paint the whole room! It needed another coat anyway! I'm thinking about changing the color, but to what I'm not sure!

      It's a beautiful Fall day today! The temp in in the mid-eighties and there's a slight breeze. The sun is still mighty hot, though! I can't believe how short the days have gotten just since I wrote the last post! We'll be setting the clock back before we know it! I like the change, though.

      I've been working on crafts still, and made Win's teacher a pencil can. I need to send it to her! I've also decided to cut the girls names out instead of using stickers or a stencil. I tried it last night and it turned out nice. Now I have three girls names to do. It's kind of time consuming cutting those letters but at least I saved a ton of money! The sticker letters I wanted at Hobby Lobby are not on sale this week and are $3.99 a pack. I would need at least 4 packs since the owls are all different colors and there's only 3 of a kind letters in each pack. So free, is a lot better than close to $20! 

      Hope ya'll are having a good week! Thanks for reading and commenting! Blessings from Bama!

I just had to share Riley's smiling face!

I finally made some GOOD pumpkin bread. It's supposedly Starbuck's version. It sure tastes delicious!

My stove-top after using Barkeeper's Friend! Hard to see but at least you don't see the brown ring around the eyes anymore!

I believe I could use some Barkeeper's Friend on this pan!

My new Bestie!

The pencil can for Win's teacher.


  1. I will have to try that - I never heard of it. Riley - sooo cute!

    1. I had heard of it, and had actually owned some in the past but I never knew what all it could do. I just thought of it as something to clean stainless steel sinks. Then I started using baking soda and vinegar and never bought any more. Glad I tried it again! I got it at Wal-Mart of course!

  2. I will have to look for that in the stores. I have never heard of it either but it is probably here somewhere. My stove is gas but it desperately needs something that will work on it. I have not made bread in a while (I think I must be lazy lately). Love your pencil can for the teacher!

    1. Just check the lower shelves in the cleaning section at WM. YOU are definitely NOT lazy Becky! You are just busy and maybe a little burned out like I get sometimes! Thanks, it was an easy project!

  3. I've not heard of Barkeeper's Friend, so thank you for sharing with us your new 'friend'! Your stove looked great. I think we've got similar stoves and those ceramic tops are kind of hard to keep 'clean' looking. Your pumpkin bread looks delicious and the pencil can is cute and Riley is a cutie! It's teasing us here too with 'Fall' on the calendar, but not feeling so much in the weather. Have a good week Felecia!

    1. Hi Lisa! I am so glad I shared about Barkeeper's Friend! It is so much better to use than comet. I think our stoves are very similar. The bread was so good! I'll be making it a LOT! Thanks for those sweet comments! Yes, the Fall season is teasing us here as well! Thanks Lisa, you too!


I love reading your comments! Leave one, if you wish.
