I'm so envious of your find, Munky.

My Mom left me her old Singer portable that looks just like that, with all the attachments, including buttonhole. I gave it to my step-Mom who does prize winning machine quilting.

I'd love to have learned on a treadle, but that old portable (and Mom) taught me fine. I made all my doll clothes on it.

I really love the cabinet with all those wonderful drawers for your notions!

Absolutely nothing wrong with wearing makeup, and certainly no need to apologize or justify for doing so. Kudos to those who feel good about not wearing makeup, but I've been wearing eye makeup since I was 12 and feel naked without it. My mom was often mistaken for Elizabeth Taylor, and always wore lots of mascara, liner, and shadow.

Mascara is a total waste on me. I have short black eyelashes and you can't see any difference when I put on mascara.

Time to scrub my shower head! It's been soaking in vinegar for about 3 hours. Himself and I hit the plumbing store today, he got the new part installed in my tub today, and said I'll be very happy when I flip the water from tub to shower. Guess it's as good of a gusher you can get with a 26 PSI...in the basement! Too tired to compute the loss in pressure going from the basement to the 2nd floor in a house with 7 1/2 foot ceilings and the shower head at just under 6" from the floor of the tub...

CG, a girlfriend of mine used to do cleaning on time share condos.

She would soak the shower head in CLR every time for each condo. Her boss was greatly impressed with the results.

She only spent maybe a half hour in each condo (with a crew), and the shower heads were completely cleaned during that time.

For a container, she would use a plastic butter container and use the CLR for all the shower heads, one by one.

I'm just very unhappy. My betta died among other things and I'm going to bed.

With love,
~Cat

I am watching a pvr'd American Idol from earlier, crocheting a very late Christmas present for my niece, and trying to get through on a chat for an app I purchased and can't use. How's that for multi-tasking!

I've tried either CLR or Lime-Away. It works, but it also took the plating off some metal on the now-replaced tub spout. The vinegar works wonderfully if you aren't in a hurry, which I wasn't. And I make sure I rinse it out really good so I don't smell like a pickle. Actually, I did end up with a taste for pickles! Luckily, we had a jar of Claussen in the fridge.
