  1. We are psychically linked! Tonight I made a pork & veg stir-fry with rice; I was looking at the bottle of Joy dish liquid beneath the sink and thinking, “It’s time to make up some bubble stuff for the kids,” and if the “Emma-esque” dress is an an empire-waisted pattern from Sense and Sensibility, I have a pattern for my own girl I’ve said I need to do this spring…


  2. Which recipe did you use for the bubbles? I was just thinking I need to start making our own. All those little bottles are so wasteful.

    • nina, i am a little embarassed to admit that we “wasted” a lot of soap getting the mixture just right. we sort of just mixed household soaps-dish soap, laundry soap and hand-soap. i do think that since none of them had glycerin we lacked the stickiness they needed to last. never-the-less, it was still fun and i think you can easily buy glycerin at the drug store-i know i did once when we made snow globes. sorry i wasn’t much help!
