This is the first year that Little Big Chief has not built a leprechaun trap in his bedroom in hopes of catching a little wee folk for himself! Sigh! I feel a little sad as some of the trappings of childhood are set aside for "tween" interests.........
4oz household bleach, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon salt
4 oz peroxide, 4 oz distilled vinegar, 1 tablespoon salt
These Bells were done with the bleach solution. I'm not sure if they are a "better" metal or I just didn't leave them in for 72 hours.......The pins were done with peroxide solution. I like the color they turned out. This is my favorite solution for rusting.
And, to be honest, I use more salt.....I get antsy and add unmeasured amounts in.........(is that called manipulating the recipe?)
This would be moi', in the bottom left corner........
BTW, last night for home evening we went into town and saw "Race To Witch Mountain"........I wasn't really excited to see it, but Little Big Chief really wanted to. I was pleasantly surprised. In fact I got so caught up in the fast action, that my popcorn was gone in minutes!!! We all liked it. :-) we had a good time and I think it was a fun movie! Have you seen it?
