Doggie Ice Cubes

As the heat of the summer approaches, I thought I would share this thrifty way to make ice cubes for our canine friends.  And so the first ever Doggie Edition post commences…

 

The thrifty part of this is the reuse of yogurt containers as the ice cube maker.  Now… make sure you use yogurt containers that are larger at the top than the bottom.  Obviously this prerequisite eliminated using the standard Yoplait containers, LOL! 

But you can use these new ‘GREEK’ Yoplait yogurt containers.  Ms. Diva’s would like to point out that her favorite crackers/pretzels are present in the background.

Here is a close-up of the packaging {a little plug for 2x protein yogurt}.  PS~This is not my favorite yogurt by any means.  Another thrifty concept: the HEB brand costs $0.20 less than the Yoplait brand.  One more reason to buy the store brand over the brand name.

I wash the cups out with soap, and then fill them up to about 75% full.  Stick them in the freezer overnight, and in the morning you will have…. Doggie Ice Cubes!

Stand back, and let your canine friend enjoy.

Don’t trip on any little helpers that are trying to convince you they need more of their favorite crackers.

  1. Oooooooh you have a Shep... I really want one. Doing the whole RV life having a guard dog is so important. We'll be getting a bigger dog with the next rig and Sheps are on the top of the list. You little one is so cute - I want that hair color... I wonder if they make it in a bottle?

  4. I have two small dogs, who are afraid of ice cubes. But I did have a dog that liked to carry them around.

    BTW, I know that shepherds are prone to hip probs (apparently shih tzus are, too). I take my shih tzu to our doggie chiropractor (at the vet's office.) FYI, if you ever need one...I hope you don't.

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
