Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub

Make your own pumpkin spice sugar scrub
and stimulate your senses with
cinnamon and ginger.
It's a delicious treat that you don't eat.
Keep it by the kitchen sink and rub
a little over your wet hands and
they will be smooth as silk.  
Make another to use as a body scrub 
in the tub or shower. 
Store it in a plastic container. 
It exfoliates and smoothes your skin. 
Just rub a little all over your just washed skin
 and rinse off.
 Combine the sugars, spices and oil.
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
1 T pumpkin pie spice
1/2 C vegetable or sunflower oil
or try baby oil.
Mix well until there are no lumps.
Store in a cute jar with a cute scoop.
The Ball jars and copper scoops 
were both thrift shop finds.
It's sitting on an old bread board 
next to my foamy soap.
 Tie on a ribbon and add a label.
This is enough for 2 small jars. Cut
 the recipe in half unless you are making
 a few extra for a perfect little gift.
Cheers!

  8. Thx Rita, I've never commented before but I love your ideas!!! I tried this right away, it's sooo wonderful. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice on hand so I used a blend of all the separate fall spices. PS My college son loves your meatballs. Have them in the freezer for weekend visits. Carly in TN

  16. A man went to the theatre for the concert. At the ticket office, he said to the ticket seller:
    - Please sell me a half of ticket!
    -I don't understand what you said. Why is a half of ticket? - asked the ticket seller.
    - Because my left ear has been deaf from last year. I can hear with only one ear.
