Solar Outside Sensor Light Review

This Suaoki Super Lit 8 Solar Motion Sensor Light is so small I couldn’t believe how bright the light is (I had not taken note of the size) but I later found out that it is small and powerful.

DSCF0260 (2) Inside the box is a clear easy to understand instruction leaflet, fixings and a pin to activate the battery.

DSCF0261 I activated the battery and screwed it to the outside wall near the back door. It is in a south facing position to get the most sun.

DSCF0283 When dusk fell I went outside to see if it worked. As I passed by it it came on with a good strong light. When it became fully dark outside I went out and it was glowing brightly – when the dog passed by it the sensor turned the light on very strongly.

DSCF0280 I have tried to show this in my pictures. When activated the light shines for over six feet forwards and sideways. I am very pleased with this item and would not hesitate to buy again and to recommend.

Vintage Style Sewing Basket Review – Wins My Sewing Bee!

 Sturdy and so pretty – this was my first reaction when I opened this sewing basket.

DSCF0264 (2) The gold colour handle and the blue candy stripe padded outside are gorgeous. It fastens with a magnetic button (like on most handbags) Inside the lining plain blue satin.

DSCF0265 (2)There is a handy lift out tray and then as a bonus in the bottom is a set of sewing equipment.Scissors, thimble, needles, pin cushion, seam ripper, pins,tape measure, needle threader and a seam ripper.

DSCF0266 (2)It is a perfect starter set for someone setting up home or taking up sewing. I have been sewing for over fifty years but I am downsizing so I am going to get rid of a lot of my old things and just keep a few of my things in this little beauty. If you are thinking of this for a gift – it is beatutifly presented in a clear pvc bag, anyone would be pleased to receive this as a present.

Pestle and Mortar – review

This pestle and mortar is a lovely piece of kitchen equipment. I have been using the end of a rolling pin and a mixing bowl until I received this item. It was so beautifully presented in a smart blue box in a polystyrene nest.

DSCF0235 (2) The outside is shiny and smooth the inside is slightly rough to give you good purchase when grinding. I made some herb dressing for pasta.

DSCF0251.JPG It took my only five minutes to pick, wash, tear them up and grind then with a little oil. I hate the feeling of stock cubes on my fingers so I shall use it for them too. The size is just right, it is quite heavy (I actually used it on a damp towel to keep it firm but I found out later it does not move about like my mixing bowl did. The mortar part it shaped to fir into your hand and you can grip it easily. A big plus point it it is so easy to clean. I think this is a quality item and I can recommend it.

More Hearts to Love!

I bought these wire hearts to use as place markers and to display photographs and invitations.

DSCF0241 (2) There are ten in the pack – they stand sturdily and the wire in good and strong. They go very well with these wooden hearts.

DSCF0248
With a name pained on the wooden heart the wire heart displays it very well. For the photographs I loosened the “spring” in the metal a little to stop it marking the photographs.

DSCF0242 (2) For a wedding, Birthday or Baby shower they are so pretty and should be usable for years to come.

I Heart These Hearts!

I have lots of uses for these little wooden hearts – for Christmas I am going to make mini bunting on red thread.

DSCF0234 (2) The reason I have not given five stars is the fact the description does say with hole. I had noticed that the photographs had un-drilled hearts so was not too suprised. They are quite easy to drill or do as I did and make a hole with a awl or a sharp knife. You can also use them as place markers for a wedding, birthday or baby shower (they go well with this product  .

DSCF0248 There are 50 in the pack

DSCF0237 (2) – I intend to paste verses from old books onto some of them and paint some others. If you made holes all round the edge you could then embroider them with blanket stitch in red and hang them from a Nordic style Christmas tree.

Sewing Bee Essential – keep all my spools free from tangles!

I have been sewing since I was at primary school yet my spools have always been in a tangle so I was pleased to receive this product.DSCF0236 (2)

The box is small so easy to store (approximately 4 inches x four and a half inches). It opens easily with a catch at the front and then inside are 25 new coloured plastic spools. I have taken these out for future use and replaced them with my own assorted filled ones – as you can see all ages and types fit well!

DSCF0245 It will now be easy to find the colour I want quickly when I need to do a fast repair! If you sew then this little case will make your life easier and your sewing room tidier!

Classy Addition to my Kitchen!

This is the first time I have owned a pepper and salt grinder and I think they make a great addition to my kitchen.

DSCF0232 They look so classy and work really well. I washed them first and they do take a while to dry – I left the grinding part in the sun and then turned it over and left it overnight to make sure it was bone dry.

DSCF0233 (2) The tops unscrew easily and the necks make it easy to fill them with peppercorns and coarse salt.

DSCF0230 (2) The coarseness can be altered with the black wheel and I have shown in the photos both fine and coarse grinds.

DSCF0213 I will not buy ready ground pepper and salt now I have these – I am thrilled with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shabby Chic / Rustic – but classy too!

KING DO WAY Natural Hessian Jute Burlap Fabric Lace Table Runner Rustic Wedding Upholstery Decoration as picture 176cm x 30.5cm
I want to use these runners for a garden party I am having soon and at 69 x 12 inches approximately they are perfect for an oblong garden table.

DSCF0218 (2) I did give a run over with the steam iron on the wrong side to remove the fold lines.The linen is nice and thick and the white lace very white and pretty, the quality is really very good.

DSCF0223 (2) They do look lovely with vintage china and cottage garden flowers.

DSCF0219 (2) The runner also looks good used on a worktop if you are having a buffet party and on my kitchen dresser too.

DSCF0215 If you are arranging a function or just a special meal at home I can recommend these runners – they have a lovely homespun, country feel about them, shabby chic but classy too!.

I received this item at a reduced price on condition I gave a true and honest review and I have done this.

Gorgeous luxury Jewelry Box – I love it!

I  am so pleased I chose this Jewelry box it looks so smart and very expensive. The black covering resembles calf leather and the inside has faux suede. The faux leather wipes clean easily if it gets dusty. The workmanship of this piece is excellent – the handle is top stitched in white thread.

DSCF0204 (2)

I have seen an antique case with the same type of handle and brass fittings and it was very expensive and not so good inside. When you open the case the front drops down and the ring holder automatically presents your rings to you so you can choose which to wear. The lid has a cantilever construction, when you lift the lid the top shelf rises up. The top shelf has space for earrings, the drawer and shelf on the left is ideal for necklaces and bracelets. There are even holes in the top left shelf to keep your stud earrings secure if you have pierced ears. I have quite a few brooches and pins and these go onto the suedette cushion.

DSCF0206The case has a lock and comes with two keys.

DSCF0210All the fittings are brass metal and it has a good sturdy feel. Each of the boxes and shelves are covered with the suedette material or the black faux leather – the attention to detail is astonishing. The mirror makes your trinkets look good and would be handy if you were travelling. The black colour makes it ideal for a man too! Cufflinks, rings , watches, tie pins and chains – my husband wants it for his jewelry! I may have to treat him to one!

Handy Car Vacuum Cleaner – does the job!

KevenAnna Handheld Car Vacuum Cleaner, Wet and Dry Use with Powerful 12V DC 60W Power Supply and Multifunctions – Tire Inflator Pump 150 PSI Air Compressor ,Tire Pressure Gauge and LEDs light

DSCF0193

I found this little handheld vacuum cleaner easy to use. It has a long cable so if you have back seats it reaches easily. The brush attachment is good for loosening ground in dirt and there is a crevice tool and an extender.

DSCF0201

My footwells were full of leaves, grit and small stones and it picked these up easily.

DSCF0197

 I was very suprised at the amount of dirt it removed (see the pic – this is just from the drivers footwell).

DSCF0198

DSCF0199

The switches are forward for the vacuum middle for off and back for the compressor. Included is a tube for inflating tyres and inflatables. The light is a bonus for those dark corners. I wish it had a cable so it could be used in a normal power socket but overall I am very pleased with this item.
