Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galvestion, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863.
Saturday I started on my Spring Cleaning with my electric range. I made two trips to Home Depot to purchase new drip bowls. Neither set fit! Will have to go BACK tomorrow to return the 2nd set! Grrr! Mine were FILTHY!!! Never fear! PINTEREST is here! I went on Pinterest and found this! It worked like a CHARM!! All four look brand new now!!
We had RECORD breaking snow this week in Fort Worth, Texas!
So what did I do on this snow day you ask? I cleaned the outside of my kitchen cabinets I painted 4 years ago and then touched them up with left over paint! Then I added more new cabinet door knobs that had arrived earlier this week! They are crystal! Love them!
