Wisdom and Rooms

Do not wear yourself out to get rich;
be wise enough to desist.
- Proverbs 23:4
“Carve your name on hearts, not on marble”—Charles Spurgeon
I think that I have never lost the intuition
that community life could be a sign
that God is love, and love alone.
- Brother Roger, Swiss theologian and
founder of Taizé, an ecumenical monastic community in France
The God of life summons us to life; more, to be lifegivers,
especially toward those who lie under the heel of the powers.

- Daniel Berrigan, Jesuit priest, poet, and peace activistThank you, Design Sponge, for this green alternative to Clorox:
Homemade, Dollar-Saving, Fragrance-Uplifting, All-Purpose Spray

The Goods:
-1 empty 32 oz. spray bottle-3/4 c. Distilled White Vinegar
-1 c. Hydrogen Peroxide-1 1/2 tsp. Castille Soap (Such as Dr. Bronner )
-30 drops Tea Tree Oil
-30 drops Essential Oil of choice (some of my favorite choices include lavender, lemongrass, rosemary, lemon verbena, spearmint, clove, cinnamon, anise, sage, grapefruit, lemon, and lime; experiment with one or a combo and see what scent makes you want to get lean and clean!)

The Deal:
-Place all ingredients into the spray bottle using a funnel or measuring cup with a spout.
-Add water until contents reach top of bottle.
-Shake vigorously and use with abandon!

They are Tolix chairs- my favorite! Styled from the French original. Pottery Barn has just started carrying them in silver as well as red, green, yellow....white, too, I believe.
