:Mini restoration to cast iron enamelware:
I scored this Le Creuset Dutch oven for $12 at a local thrift store. I was worried about the condition of the enamel at the bottom. It had been scorched brown, and was pretty gross. I tried soap and scrubbing with no avail.
I asked my mother in-law if she knew any tricks on how to clean it.
Here is her secret:
1. Soak in scalding hot water
2. Add a dishwasher tab and let is dissolve and soak over night
3. Scrub with scotch bright the next day and rinse.
It did the trick!
I wish I had a before photo- just imagine you melted a chocolate bar and let it sit for a while. (Yuck)
I enjoy free-hand typography (When I have a moment to spare). I made this sign for my Facebook group Chattanooga Vintage goodness. My friend and I hosted a booth at St. Elmo’s Spring corner festival in April this year and needed signage! We met some lovely enthusiast at the festival, and gained a few new group members. The group is a great place to gawk, sell, or trade vintage goods ( locally only ) . Let’s get the vintage train rolling in #CHA ! Join yourself, and tell your friends!

My morning attitude check : “Confidence comes from knowing and accepting your whole self as it is.” -unknown // I have struggled with acne for years. It has been one of the biggest confidence squashers since I was a teenager. I would get so aggravated when others point out their one tiny zit when I have an entire face full. I am learning to let it go! Everyone struggles with something or other. This is mine. I want to share to show myself I am bigger than my struggle, and I don’t care what others think. I have come to the conclusion that we all have something we struggle with about ourselves. No one is perfect, and that’s that. Be you! This is just a small part of me. I love my husband, gardening, antiques, sewing, cooking, tasting new wines, trying on cloths, typography, yoga, going out with the friends, helping others, and learning something new! Don’t let your confidence squasher get you down. Show it who’s boss! It doesn’t own you. #truth #honest #beyourself #acne #struggles #namaste
This is only a small part of me.
I’m quite mortified posting this ! But I hope others will feel inspired to just do what they do, and be themselves relentlessly !
