Ha!  I know..I know…you are thinking…”Did I just read that right?”  “Is this really the title of her post?”  Yes, my friends, you did and it is.  Today I just wanted to put you on to the joys of Epsom salts.  I’m actually talking about using them as “snow” in your home…um…not the other.  Who doesn’t want to transform their home into a winter wonderland?  Who wants to talk about laxatives today? Okay….no hands on either.  Let’s talk snow.

You know a few years ago, someone gave me a bag of that flaky, fake snow that looked kinda like shredded coconut.  I still use it.  It is very pretty.  Then…somewhere I came upon the fact that people use Epsom salts in their apothecary jars.  How awesome is that?  If you are of the branch of people who don’t really know much about Epsom salts,( like I was, I thought that a good foot soak was their only quality) they actually look like big sugar crystals.  They are fairly cheap and make very pretty snow.  Who knew that magnesium sulfate could be so beautiful?  Someone did.

I loved the way that this picture turned out so it’s the only one that I’m posting today. I will share the other jars later.

Have a wonderful day, Dirt Roaders.  Let it snow…let it snow…let it snow.

p.s. I mentioned that the salts were fairly cheap.  I paid four and then three dollars at some different places and then saw them at Wal-Mart for like…eighty-eight cents! Next time…I WILL KNOW!  😉
