Home Improvement Done Right

We have been living in our house for about eleven years now.  It was a brand new house, so it hasn't needed a lot of updates, but the porch railings were in desperate need of repair!

Thank goodness MH has a friend that does good work and is dependable and honest.

No more flimsy and twisted boards...  now just a coating of stain and we will be good to go for several more years.

What upgrades have you done to your house this year?

Canagan Grain Free Dog Food - 2 Paws Up

Our two furry girls eat meals twice a day.  Our youngest, Dixie, will eat just about anything, but our oldest, Nellie, has gotten very picky in the past six months.  She snubs food that she used to love.  When I showed her the bag of Canagan Grain Free dog food, she perked up.  Then when I opened it and took out a piece of the heart-shaped dog food, she was acting like she was getting a treat.  That made me feel good.  Of course, Dixie was eager to eat it also.

More haircare styling products from Matrix... Style Link Mineral collection.  The products are perfect for summer styles.  I especially like the dry shampoo, something I use more and more.  Each product uses micro-minerals to create texture without feeling heavy.
