Titanium Classic Pruning Shears By Haus & Garten Review #Hausandgarten


I was really excited!

After several years of drought, we have had El Nino storms throughout the winter and I am grateful! Lord knows we needed all that rain badly. But that rain made my gardens come back to life and they had become a jungle!

The entrance to the gazebo is somewhere in there!
 
Panic set in when I realized Easter was early this year
and I needed to get my gardens ready for the Celebration.


Walkway? what walkway?
Pruning was definitely in order!
Not to mention everything else I needed to get done,
and throw in C's surgery along with other real life stuff, needless to say I was behind. My old pruners were dull and chipped, so the Haus & Garten's came at the perfect time.


Upon opening I noticed right away just how razor sharp the blade was, the shears are solid and very well made. They felt good in my hand, not too heavy nor too light. I love the ergonomic anti-slip shock absorbing pads. I was relieved to feel how good they felt in my hand as  I sometimes have problems with shears sliding/moving and am having to constantly readjust, not these! 



These Shears outshine their competition. I was surprised to be able to tackle my entire yard with just these shears. I really gave them a work out! From tough stems, twigs to small branches - I never had an issue. They went through them all without difficulty.
They saved me a lot of time from switching back and forth between tools.


After photos ~ Look how you can see everything!!


I said I would put them to the test and I did!

These high quality stainless steel have a protective titanium coating that decreases friction to make easier cutting and longer lasting protection against rust and corrosion.
Awesome!



These quality made pruning shears are backed up with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. Personalized customer service is available 7 days a week ready to help you!

They are available here on Amazon.
What a great gift for the gardener in your life!

 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free or a discounted price from Haus & Garten. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Purex plus Clorox2 Detergent Review and Giveaway! #PurexPlusClorox2

Purex plus Clorox2 couldn't have shown up at a better time!


Sure I was preparing for Easter,
had a ton of other things on my mind ~
laundry wasn't one of them.


I put it aside for time being,
and went on with the preparation and celebration.


Then came the after Easter clean up....uggh
That's when I remembered Purex plus Clorox2!


I had tons of laundry - tablecloths, napkins,
and other linens,


not to mention all our clothes!
Especially mine....
I think more food went on my
blouse than in my mouth!

Saved the Bean Salad as a little one ran by - that's on the left,
the ham slipped as I was carving it and sloshed up on me - that's on the right. OY!


New Purex® plus Clorox2 detergent is specially formulated with Clorox 2® stain-fighting enzymes to remove the toughest stains.
Believe me there's a lot of tough stains in that mountain of laundry.

My Sunshine was sitting among the Oxalis
and decided she wanted me to sit with her

There went my pants!
Flower stains! LOL


New Purex® plus Clorox2 detergent works on 100 different stains
Contains a powerful boost of Clorox 2® stain fighters
Safe for colors (contains no chlorine bleach)


It will get a real test this time around!

For Tough Stains
Pretreat by applying some detergent directly to stains and rub into fabric. Allow formula to sit on stains for 5 minutes. For added power, use 3/4 cap of detergent in wash.

Well, looky looky!!
New Purex® plus Clorox2 detergent saved my butt literally!


It removed not only the flower stains
but the leafy green stains too!!

And look at my blouse!
My whole outfit was saved from all the
assortment of stains from Easter!
The olive oil from the Bean Salad and
the Ham drippings are GONE!


I'm really relieved, I don't have that many nice outfits
and really thought this one was a goner for sure.
 Can't give you anymore proof than that.
All I did was pour a little on the stains,
rub it in good, let it sit for about 5 minutes then
toss it along with the rest of the clothes
and detergent into the machine.

Paint'em Pretty Easter ~ Better Late than Never!


Yes!,
 I got brave and did a Bunny on my thumb.
It was suppose to go on one of my other fingers but well,
it didn't work out that way.
Just lucky it made it there.

Between an impromptu visit to the vet which turned out to be a sprained tail ~ that we stayed up all night with Tora for because she screamed bloody murder about and one of the kids coming down with bronchitis that Izzy just had to share with her Godfather ~ things were crazy. I was running around trying to get things ready for Easter, so when I say it took 3 days to do these nails I mean it took 3 days!

Craziness to the max!

OK, Bunny on the thumb
Bunny is Sally Hansen in Naturally White for head and ears
LA Colors Color Craze in 892 for eyes, nose and ears
Pure Ice in Bikini for background

Fingers (starting with pointer)
Pure Ice in Home Run
Salsa in Pina Colada
LA Nails in Color Craze
Sinful Colors in Tempest
All white dots are Sally Hansen in Natural White

Hoping you had a fab Easter
and had a fun time with your nails!!
Pretty soon My sunshine will be big enough to get hers done ;);)

Mommy and Daddy will be gone for a few days and she will be staying here,
maybe we will just make that happen...shhh


Paint'em Pretty ~ Bikini



Yes, Spring fever has hit! It's pastel time!

Life has been crazier than normal so only had time for a quickie mani...no time to try any fancy (for me anyway) decorations.

A couple coats of Bikini by Pure Ice with pretty pink and green floral decals.

Topped with Sally Hansen's Megashine.

Posts may be a little sporadic as my youngest prepares for 2 surgeries, Mar.1st and Apr. 5th.
Will have to wait and see how things go.

Until next time,
get your Spring on!!
