Spring Homemaking Tips

DECORATION FOR SEA-THEMED ROOM...
Fill decorative see-through glass containers (such as a small fish bowl) 
about a quarter of the way full with beach sand.  Add seashells, feathers, 
driftwood, starfish or other beach findings and you have a quick, easy 
decoration for 
a sea-themed room. 

AN EASY WAY TO CLEAN MINI BLINDS...
I just did this recently and it worked really well.  On a sunny day, lay the 
blinds in the grass and spray with a hose.  Fill a bucket with soapy water and 
use this and a soft brush to wash the blinds clean.  Rinse and do other side. 
 Let dry right in the lawn.  

LAVENDER TEA BREAD
Take advantage of your blooming lavender and make a tasty quick bread. 

3/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp. dried lavender flowers, finely chopped, or 3 Tbsp. fresh
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs

Grease a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Heat milk 
with lavender almost to a boil, then let steep until cool. Mix flour, baking 
powder and salt together in bowl. Cream butter, gradually add sugar, then eggs, 
one at a time, beating until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture alternately 
with lavender milk, in 3 different batches. Mix until batter is just blended, 
do 
not over-beat. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes, or until 
toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan 5 min., then 
remove 
to a wire rack to cool. When completely cool, ice with a powdered sugar glaze 
made with 3 Tbsp. milk and enough powdered sugar to make a thick but still 
runny paste if desired. Garnish with sprigs of fresh lavender around cake, or 
sprinkle additional finely chopped lavender on glaze before it hardens.
