Picnic Table Drink Cooler Idea

How fun is this? A creative, convenient way to serve and chill wine, beer or soda at your next outdoor party involves a wine gutter and a picnic table. This picnic table was designed by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects and features a built-in galvanized steel gutter down the center of the table. Fill with ice and you have a bona fide, handy-dandy drink cooler at your fingertips!

Summer Skin Cooling Soak for Sunburns

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Summer Skin Cooking Soak

Sunburns can be painful and slow to heal. Lavender essential oil can help with mild burns, including sunburns and may help minimize peeling.  Lavender is one of the few essential oils that does not need to be diluted with a carrier oil and can be applied directly to skin by gently dabbing it on with a cotton ball.

For a do-it-yourself skin soothing soak in the tub, combine one cup powdered milk with 10 drops lavender essential oil in a jar, shake and pour into lukewarm bath water.

Mini Rice Krispie Treats Ice Cream Cones

Rice Crispie Ice Cream Cones

Here’s a cute idea for treats or for a child’s birthday party. The ice cream cones are teeny, tiny – about 1-.75″ tall (Joy Kids Cones from Walmart).

A cookie scoop or small melon baller is used to form the ice cream from the Rice Krispie mixture, then drizzled with melted almond bark or candy melts.  To make the cones more stable, you can put some candy in the cone, then use the candy melts to “glue” the scoop to the cone.  See tutorial at Cute As a Fox.
