Another great brand arrives at Target... this time for the kitchen counters. I'd been using Method, but when I sampled these scents I had to give them a try... so I brought home Caldrea's countertop cleaner and stainless cleaner in Herbs of Provence (essential oils of rosemary, thyme, and sage). They make my kitchen smell like I've had a lovely candle burning. (They do have kitchen candles too... and hand soap, dish soap, hand cream...).
The countertop cleaner is safe for any sealed natural or synthetic stone, and also wood and tile (finished/sealed). It cleans with vegetable protein extract, is biodegradable, and not tested on animals. Love. The stainless cleaner has been doing a great job with no streaking (though my following directions and spraying on the cloth, not the surface, and rubbing in circles, may have something to do with it.) At any rate, both of these products get two thumbs up from me. Next time I'm going to try the Olive Oil scent.
...and I have to share a small accomplishment from the weekend. We finally went and picked out a chandelier with my younger daughter for her room, and got it put together and installed. I love it, and so does she. I've been meaning to put small chandeliers up in both my girls' rooms since we bought this house about 3 1/2 years ago!
Now at this point, my older daughter doesn't want one (she picked out a lava lamp - remember those?) - and we are currently in discussions about how we are going to re-do her currently very Pottery Barn patchwork, gingham, and pink room. Purple and green are in the running, a color combo I love. For my younger daughter, we are looking at the Paris Toile collection from Pottery Barn Kids. Tres chic!

I hope everyone is starting out a great week!
