It's beginning to look like Christmas

My husband and I had a great time making the barn wreath today.
 It is such fun doing things with each other, and at the same time decorate the barn for Christmas time. We so enjoy are farm animals.
Just wanted to share with you all and wishing you All a Very Merry Christmas to you from us at the Sunflower Critters Farm..

MaryJanesFarm Honey Popcorn Balls

Wanted to share this recipe from MaryJanesFarm. What a great magazine to get if you can. Lot's of down to earth ideas and so much more.
Here is the recipe:
3/4 cups honey
3/4 cup sugar
1 t. salt
1/2 cup water
3 quarts popped popcorn
2 T. melted butter

 1. Add sugar, salt and water to a 3 quart pot and stir until liquid reaches 300F, which will be a very brittle stage.
2. Add honey slowly, stirring until blended.
3. Cook until liquid reaches 240 (about one minute)
4. Pull liquid over popcorn and mix with a wooden spoon.
5. Working quickly, drop two large spoonfuls of popcorn onto a buttered cookie sheet.
6. As they cool, form into balls (rub fingers in butter to keep the popcorn from sticking to your hands.)

Pet Turkey

My pet turkey ! He is such a baby. Follow's me everywhere when I'm outside. Love's to be patted and be picked up and held. Who would of thought a turkey would loved to be loved.
God has blessed me so with all my farm animals.


Here are some of the toothpaste recipes that I 
4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 or 1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of your favorite  essential oils such as , cinnamon, peppermint,  spearmint 
.Add enough water about 1 or 1 ½ teaspoons to get 
a toothpaste texture. Keep in a small covered container so it wont dry out. 

The baking soda cleans the teeth, removes stains, 
and does not damage tooth enamel. It is also is antibacterial and neutralizes 
plaque acids. The salt helps to draw out agents that contribute to decay. Salt 
also helps to lesson the reactions of sensitive teeth from hot or cold curbs 
bleeding from the gums.

Here is a natural whitening toothpaste:
1 teaspoon of baking soda to enough hydrogen 
peroxide to make a paste. Use it to brush teeth for 2 minutes.

Here is other ways you can whiten your teeth is 
to cut a fresh strawberry or raspberry and rub this on your teeth. 

If you make it your self to is more healthier and  I get great joy out of making and using the products that I make.
Hope you enjoy making your own toothpaste. Please let me know how you make out. 
God Bless; Deb
