Hummingbirds

I found the cutest (yet ugliest) little hummingbird *thing* at Goodwill the other day...
It appeared to be a wind chime and I wasn't sure if it was silver or brass, but either way they were coming home with me.... When I got home, Ali and I sat down and started polishing - they went from this...


to this...


with this...


Yep... Use ketchup to remove tarnish from brass (and copper). 
Squeeze ketchup onto a cloth and rub it on pots and pans. Rinse with warm water and dry with a towel.
They should go back to their brassy/coppery color in minutes.

They're going to hang in the new house by one of the doors so they can make their sweet little sound each time the door is opened!  


All for less than a dollar :o)

Looking at blogs, for me, is like driving down the street at night and happening by a house that has all its curtains wide open with the lights on... you get a quick glance into someone else's life.

So, friend, please leave a message... I'm leaving the curtains wide open and all the lights are on. I'd love to chat with ya! (and I try to respond to all my comments)
