I started a new feature here on the blog called Jo’s Favorite Finds. In these posts, I’m going to share some things I’ve discovered. You might already know about them…and some you might not. Here are today’s featured items.
I am a sucker for ads on Instagram or Facebook. I see the video ad and I’m thinking wow, that looks awesome. I’ve bought several things that way and for the most part, all have been good.
My latest find was this… Sticky Reusable Lint Roller.
Rosie, my beagle, is a big-time shedder. If she gets nervous, she is shedding everywhere.
I am also a quilter and cross stitcher so I end up with threads all over my clothes. Between the dog and my hobbies, I use a lint roller a lot. I really liked the idea of one being reusable. The thing works like a charm.
Here is my little demo to show you how it works…I rolled it over the couch to try to pick up Rosie hair.
I hadn’t vacuumed for a couple of days so it was no problem getting dog hair.
I took it to the sink and washed it off…
Dog hair is all gone and once it’s dry, it’s ready to use again. I love it.
You can find it HERE on Amazon.
This is a find from our daughter Kelli. You might remember she gifted her started His Eye is on the Sparrow started to piece to our friend Nell when we were at the retreat. She found out she was in love with 36 count and stitching with only one strand of floss was what she wanted to do. So with her new start, she decided to try a project organizer for floss.
Janet, who attended the retreat, had one of these and Kelli wanted to try it. She got hers HERE on Amazon. They are about $10 and can be reused.
These are especially good if you are doing a project with lots of different flosses. Here you can see how you can keep multiple needs threaded and ready for color changes.
I have yet to try one but Kelli is in love. Janet loved hers too.
I forgot to tell you about my canning jar flower frog. I meant to tell you about it in the last favorite finds post. I bought them from Amazon. They are designed to fit on a canning jar and do fit perfectly.
I used them all summer long as I cut fresh flowers from my garden. This was my last bouquet of the season.
The specific ones I bought are no longer available on Amazon but they have many others. My plan for next year is to grow more flowers and gift bunches with a frog and mason jar included. All in all, it’s a very inexpensive gift and I’m sure one that would be appreciated. You can find the mason jar flower frogs HERE on Amazon.
I’m aiming for a little less in veggies in the garden and MANY more flowers.
Kelli had another favorite find. Here kiddos are loving their little picnic table. You can find it HERE.
Sometimes she has it in the house and sometimes outside. The boys actually stay sitting here pretty well…at least when they are hungry. The Hanken family is trying really hard to soak up these fall days as once Winter arrives it’s going to be hard to get outside.
Those are the favorite finds from the Kramer and Hanken houses. I have something my blog friend Ila sent to me that I hope to feature in the next episode of favorite finds.
Does anyone have any favorite finds that you like to share? I know I’m always looking for something.
