when all else fails...have a giveaway!
i'm fantasizing that i can afford to give you something good like a gift card to some incredible place. 
oh? you are too? 
it'll be okay :/

~ a set of tin molds ~

i have searched the web for something i've
seen but cannot find...
ornaments made from these...
you cut a photo to fit inside...
probably a black and white and trim it with 
a little silk greenery and red bow for hanging on the 
Christmas tree.

yes, i said "Christmas" in June. 

now i won't have to say it in July. 
baby it's hot outside...anything we can think about 
to make us feel cooler, let's try it! 

leave me a how-to-stay-cool tip in the comments
and i'll have my boy draw a name
ummm....friday morning.

Hello Phyllis:
Have you considered moving? Greenland, or Iceland, perhaps?

The moulds look wonderful, but please do not add our names to the draw as, should we win, they would be 'lost' in the waywardness of the Hungarian postal system!

How to stay cool:

- Suck on ice
- Make fruit popsicles
- Pull your hair up in a bun (Unless it's short) and sit in front of a fan or stand in front of the freezer until your face is numb.
- This one is the most daring: Jump into the shower for 30 seconds while it's freezing...and don't stick around for the water to warm up!

Haha can you tell I'm from Florida?! ;)

Hi Auntie Bliss! Just found your great blog via you leaving a comment on mine! Thanks for being my latest follower - welcome, I'm so happy to have you!
Would feel a bit cheeky entering your giveaway on my first visit, and couldnt give a tip anyway as despite the hot spells we've had for the last month here, it rarely reaches the stage where we need do anything other than move into the shade with a cold drink to cool down!
Hope it cools for you soon - love the vintage finds in your earlier post, sepcialy that sweet decorated egg!
Just gonna check out your "homely goods"!

PS the moulds are lovely, I used to use similar to make pincushions inside them and made them look like cupcakes!

Wear shorts and singlet and throw a pool party!

I just cower inside with the air on to stay cool, it has been in the 90's the past two days! Today, I'm opening the windows, it's going to be in the 70's:>) Yay!

Paula Parrish said...

Hello Phyllis:
I want to cool off in hot Florida heat; I simply take swim in the ocean or in my pool.
Smiles, Paula

Miss Blissity

I too have a thing for Jello lately. Last week it was Lime flavored this week I have walked on the wild side and mixed a small box of Lemon with a small box of Lime.

I call it Li-monjello.

Good stuff.

(No need to enter my name in the drawing as I have inherited my own set of little molds! Good luck to ALL!)


Martina said...

Sweet giveaway idea Blissy! My stay cool tip is wearing loose, lightweight things that don't cling to the skin and carry a spraybottle with mineral water with you. A tip from Marilyn Monroe is, keeping your underwear in the freezer ;) Ever tried that? Have a fab weekend!

Run under the sprinkler! LOL!!! I may do that today as it's going to hit 100 degrees in New England!

The molds are so cute!

Deborah said...

What a fabulous idea! And how fortunate for me to find you on give-away day!!

Blessings, Debbie

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

WHEN Kiley was small we wOULD buy a bag of ice, put it in a tub, set it under a tree and let her play in it. As it melted she would sit in it. Thanks so much for blogging for me....m....

The visual of you soaking your feet in a footbath of jello is sunny.

Stay cool

Aren't you sweet, if we had hot weather here I might think of something but I am still wearing sweaters to work!!! I think I saw the decorations you are talking about...there were some pincushions made with the tart pans too!!! Very are always so kind!
Enjoy your jello!!!
