Tales From My Empty Nest said...

1. I love candles and tea lights. I also have several tart burners that really smell great. I get my tarts at Yankee Candle.
2. No special cleaning secrets. I do spray Febreze in the house to get rid of odors on a regular basis.
3. I like my toenails painted, even in the winter.
4. I love cloth napkins. If I use paper napkins, I like the large ones.

Joyce said...

1. I love candles...cinnamon scented is my favorite

2. The scrubbing bubbles toilet cleaning gel tabs. Not only do they help keep it clean but everyone who goes into my powder room asks me what I use to make it so fresh-it's a cleaner, not an air freshener but it ends up being both.

3. Always. Nice toes make me happy.

4. I love cloth napkins and always use them for guests and holidays but on a regular day, just paper. Too much laundry otherwise : )

5. Probably...for once I've actually seen several of the movies nominated.

Twice as Nice said...

Love candles but forget to burn them as often as I should. I love a pumpkin spice or vanilla.

I couldn't live without a vacuum. With hardwood floors and tile on the main floor you see everything.

Barely, I really should remove it. I think that every time I look at it and I'd be embarrassed to say how long it's been on !

I'd have to say paper napkins. Use them everyday.

I will not be watching the Oscars. I think there are way too many award shows (BORING) and they cut into my Desperate Housewives!

Have a great weekend. The Twins

Just a little something from Judy said...

I always am burning candles and I burn them according to the seasons.

I have lots of containers of a mix I make of white vinegar, water, and 2 TB. of dish detergent. This works so well for me. This plus my favorite Mr Eraser.

Sometimes I paint my toenails and sometimes not. Not consistent.

Depends on the situation, but I use mostly paper. Oh, but it is so much fun to have beautifully ironed linen napkins at a fine dinner.

No. I won't be watching the Oscars. For some reason I find them too superficial. I do like the fashions though and have friends that really enjoy this event.

Hope you have a good weekend. I like the interesting touches you add to blogging.

Designs on 47th Street said...

1. I LOVE candles and often have one burning. I used to sell them so would always have a variety of frangrances on hand.
2. I most always have my toenails polished, but recently decided to let them "breath" before spring and sandals.

4. We use cloth. Funny when the kids friends come over. They are afraid to use them. =)

Hi nice to meet you. I'm your new follower.

1. Do you use candles? If you don't what do you use to scent your house?

I rarely use candles. I use baking soda, and clean alot to ensure my home is clean and clean is just not smell at all but fresh. If it needs refresh, I open the windows and in winter I might use an air refreshner like febreze.

2. What one item is most important to you to keep your house clean? Is it a favorite cleaner, an appliance, or a secret?????

Baking soda and vinegar.

3.Do you have color on your toenails????

No. I love color on my nails but I hate seeing it chip and mine chip faster than anything as I'm a mom and my hands are always busy in washing or dirt. lol

4. Do you like to use cloth napkins or paper?

Hmm paper or cloth . I don't have a preference.

5. Will you be watching the Oscars this weekend??

I don't know. If I see it on then I will, but I wont worry my mind to remember to sit and watch it.

Freely Living Life said...

2. What one item is most important to you to keep your house clean? Is it a favorite cleaner, an appliance, or a secret?????

Baking soda and vinegar.

3.Do you have color on your toenails????

4. Do you like to use cloth napkins or paper?

Paper in my house - less laundry.
Cloth in restaurants.

5. Will you be watching the Oscars this weekend??

Nope. We don't watch much TV. Don't have time. :)

What a neat idea to get people to participate. I like it.

1. I use candles even when it's only me and hubby for dinner. I have them everywhere, but for ambiance, not scenting things up.

2. My vaccum is a Miele. It's quiet, powerful, light and easy to move around. It's my all-time fav.

3. Not this year.

4. Both. I like folding the paper ones into funky shapes and adding colout to the table. Cloth is for everyday except the super fancy ones I keep for state and holy occassions.

5. Is it Oscar time again, already?

Come visit me on Steadfast. Maybe I will try the question and answer thing too. Such a great idea.
