1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Cold Cream on: February 26, 2010 12:33:44 PM
@jennilocker - It's basically beeswax/oil/water with borax used to make it all come together. I used almond oil here, but I have tried it with olive also. It makes it more yellow and lends a different feel to it. I like both ways. I also add essential oils to it to make it smell pretty when I feel the need.

It can be used as both. I use it on my face to remove makeup and cleanse it. I have fairly sensitive skin that doesn't balance very well and it's worked wonders for me. I also use it on my hands/feet/legs/whatever when I start to get dry itchy skin.

@Nymeria - Well, currently I'm using one on a tattered piece of paper that I've been carrying around, lol! I originally found it on the web (somewhere?? Maybe I can dig around and find it at home) and tested it out at home a couple of times. I've seen similar recipes repeated all over with varying ratios of the oils/water/etc.

Thanks for the welcome! Smiley

What a great print!

The shape is wonderful, too! I bet it's super flattering.

Absolutely love it, especially the 'just-right-itude' of the fullness of the skirt!

Hi! I'm more of a lurker than anything - and usually over in the clothing and knitting boards, but I thought I'd pop over here since I have something relevant! I hope I'm not intruding!

I made this not so long ago and was really pleased with the outcome! Homemade cold cream has been a godsend for me, who cannot for the life of me find something similar without the ambiguous 'fragrance' ingredient that sets off my asthma.


5  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Plum Tart, plus what to do with plums?? on: July 25, 2008 12:19:20 PM
You can make:

Plum Sauce
Plum Pudding
Prunes (which can go in LOTS of things)
Plum Bread
Plum Glue (ok maybe not, but they ARE sticky)
Plum Pizza (it's a dessert pizza, often used in conjunction with nectarines)
Fruit Bruchetta
You could blanch and freeze them and use them in their mushy frozen fruitness later to top cakes and pies and shortbreads
Use it with pork much like you would apples or apple sauce (dunno if that's popular anywhere else, but it was where i grew up)
Fruit Salad
Plum Wine
Plum Upsidedown Cake
Plum fruit roll ups
Plum and berry soup

I know some of them have been mentioned already but... my brain isn't filtering correctly.

Though there's a lot of really fun stuff you can do with it canned too... if you start feeling more brave.

When we lived in Boulder my mom would plant onions around the border of her garden and it seemed to keep the deer out pretty well.

I have an apple tree in my yard and it looks more like this one:

But I have a baby walnut tree that looks similar to yours.
You might try googling for some foliage pictures or bring some leaves to your local nursery and ask them if you don't get a more definitive answer here Smiley

If you have some of those gladlock cheapy leftover containers (you know the kind you buy in four packs or more that are supposed to be "disposable") you can poke a couple quick holes in them with scissors and use the tops as trays for them. I've some something similar with stained/old tuperware type containers.

I guess I can just wait till he's older hehe

Awww, it's adorable! I'd wear one!

For really, I have no idea how you get "clown" or "star trek" out of that....
