"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15

Scat-sack: to eliminate and deter rodents and pests!

I must make some today, since I found some creatures trying to make our home into their home...

Here's how you can make a scat-sack to scare away the scaries and get them to skitter along to some other place-not taking up residence in your home!


Easy as 1-2-3 :]
  1. Sew one sachet bag, or use any thin muslin bag, or an odd sock.
  2. Fill with: tansy, bay, lavender, sage, rosemary and peppermint. Stitch or tie closed.
  3. Store in drawers, closets, cupboards, old trunks and chests. (They can also add a touch of prettiness when added to a basket of knitting or other handwork. Especially if embroidered or when made with a calico.)

One of the creatures that was spotted trying to get in:

  Snack creeping right over our door frame!

But when I found this ugly gal in my living room, well, that was the last straw!
Black widow by my chair!

What's the worst critter you've ever found in your house?  Tell us how you got rid of them...
