Eco-friendly meets Eco-friendly

I love thrifting, reusing and re-purposing...I believe it is the 'original' green. My family and I have been doing it for as long as I can remember. It is why I was able to quit my corporate life 16 years ago to stay home and work on creating our nest in our Little House...indoors and out.
This week is about preparing items for my Lisa's Little House booth at the Ruffles and Rust Event, being held October 22 & 23 at the Monroe Fairgrounds.
As you know, blogging around we pick up hot tips and find inspiration. In the past, I have used Johnson's Paste Wax to create a beautiful, satiny finish on furniture. No more! Thanks to Amber Dusick and her eco-friendly wooden children's toys, I have learned how to make Beeswax Wood Polish. No more ucky petroleum products (not to mention the smell!) and having to wear gloves to apply the wax. Can you see/feel my deep sigh of relief?
I am so pleased that the furniture I am preparing for the Event will be even better for you to have in your home, safer for me to prepare and best of all...better for the earth.
