How to keep Real Wood floors clean and shiny without nasty chemicals
When we moved into the farmhouse it was the first time I had real wood floors! We had laminate in the old house and I successfully cleaned them with my steam mop. I knew steam would not be a wood friendly routine so I started looking around for a new routine. Time and again I was faced with the latest and greatest products, chock full of chemicals that would disrupt hormone function, add to indoor air pollution among other things! I set out to create my own line of wood floor cleaners that would be super easy to make and use, sans harsh chemicals.
It's no secret I am a money saving mama! I like a good deal just like anyone else. I saved tens of thousands of dollars by general contracting when we built our house. So when it comes to essential oils, I had to find ways to squeeze every last bit out of those little bottles of goodness.
It takes experience to figure these little tricks out. Let me save you some time and show you my top four ways to put every last drop to good use!
I dreamed of the day I would get to create adorable clothes and playthings for my children. This halter top is one of the cutest pieces I've made and the first ever crochet pattern I ever wrote! It's super simple for even the most beginner to work up and can be done easily in an afternoon, even with kids asking for a snack every thirty minutes!
I'm a little hippy at heart and love to dress Little Miss like a boho baby. This halter was just the thing she needed. She's ready to hit the reggae concert with mama next month. Ha! Not really, that's date night with Farm Husband. ;)
I used a worsted wright acrylic yarn for the yellow halter at left but this pattern would work very well with a cotton yarn. You work this halter from the bottom up, finishing with the strings and adding the fringe last.
You can download the 12-24months pattern here or purchase the full pattern that goes up to size 6 here. If you are planning on using the free pattern to sell your handmade halter, please give credit to Three Seeds Farm and tag us or add our website! Thanks!
