Cute Edible Apple Turkey
These are really cute turkeys made out of apples that kids can make for school or just eat as a snack. They also make adorable Holiday Table decorations. They can be made with either Fruit Loops or raisins.
Safari Theme Bedroom
Here is my Safari Theme bedroom.
Dressing Up Your Dog for the Holidays
Start playing dress-up when they're young so they won't mind later on!
Hendrix the Cat
Hendrix is 8 years young! I got him from a family who was selling kittens in 1997. He likes lots of TLC and affection. He loves to sit by the opened back door to bask in the sunshine. He also has lots of little stuffed animals. He brushes his own fur with a hair brush by putting the brush handle between his paws.
This is a lovely gem of a project that looks wonderful in a snowy window. Small birds, mushrooms, and other woodland creatures sit amongst dried moss on a small log to bring the forest into your home on a winter's eve! One of my favorites.
Intricate wooden snowflakes are painted white and hung on the tree with silver thread. An optional touch of glitter provides extra pizzazz for those who like their holidays to sparkle!
Bouquet of Stars
A handful of wooden stars painted gold or silver and twisted onto stems of wire to make a whimsical and unexpected bouquet for a vase.
Preventing Winter Damage to Trees and Shrubs
If you live in a climate where winters are severe, you've probably already discovered that the snow and cold weather can cause severe damage to trees and shrubs.
Filling the Stockings
Each year I hang stockings for everyone in our immediate family (3 daughters, their spouses, and children, as well as my husband and me.) This year there will be 13 stockings! To save lots of time on Christmas Eve, I keep a large storage tub with plastic bags (13 this year)...
Birdhouses from Old Latte Cups
This is an idea for a gift or a Christmas, or all year decoration. It is a good way to recycle those latte containers. Rinse out the cup and lid, and turn upside down to dry or gently dry with a paper towel, use a safe knife to cut out a round hole in the middle of the cup, like a birdhouse.
Cutting Apples for Pies
Try this the next time you make an apple pie: first pare the apples (remove skin or if you're like my family, you can leave the skin on the apple), then use an apple cutter that removes the core and sections the apple, and then cut those sections into the smaller sections you would use when baking your pie.
Making Ornaments and Napkin Holders
My mother and I made our own holiday ornaments for the Christmas tree. We bought clear tree ornaments and different colors of craft paint. We put 1-3 colors in the bottom then twisted and twirled the bulbs so the paint covered the inside.
Fixing Loose Hinges
If the screws from your door hinges are pulled loose from the door frame, possibly from a gust of wind blowing it wide open, you can fix this by hammering wooden golf tees into the old screw holes then refastening the door hinges to the frame...
Getting Up Slivers of Glass from the Floor
This is an easy way to clean up typical messes on kitchen floors. To get up all slivers of glass from breaking a glass use a soft piece of bread, just gently press on top of the glass slivers. It should get up every little speck.
Adcor Shoe Stretchers
I am looking for Adcor Shoe Stretchers, could you please tell me where I can buy some?
Solution for Ice on a Deck
What can I use to prevent slipping on ice on my deck. I have heard that salt is harmful to carpets, if you carry it back into the house on your shoes. I want to also use something that is safe for animals (just in case they should eat it).
Organizing for the Holidays
I would love to have help in cleaning and organizing my home for the holidays. I would like to have it the feng shui way. I have two kids and it hard to get things done. I am sending a picture of my two kids.
Can anyone tell me how to make sugared pecans? I'm guessing brown sugar and butter?
Potato Soup that Uses Milk
I'm looking for a recipe for potato soup that uses milk (not half-n-half, etc.), and does not have any meat in it.
Peanut Butter Candy Bar Made With Crackers
I found a bar/candy thing (for lack of a better word) at a bake sale. My family loved it and now I am trying to find the recipe. It had saltine crackers, I believe, on bottom with a peanut butter mixture (smooth and creamy) and then another layer of crackers and then chocolate on top.
Making Punched Paper or Fabric Candle Shades
The punched tin look for candle holders is very popular right now. Get that look with paper or fabric by using your sewing machine. Take a strip of whichever medium you wish to use and sew holiday designs onto it, "without thread"...
Make Fruit Sauce With Overripe Fruit
Is your fruit too ripe to eat? Don't throw it away. Peel your bananas, apples, pears, peaches, plums, etc. Slice them and put in a saute pan with 1 tablespoon butter and a sprinkle of brown sugar.
Christmas Relish Tree
You'll wow your guests with this beautiful, edible centerpiece!
Sweet Potato Quick Bread
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two loaf pans. In a large bowl, combine sugar, water, oil, eggs and sweet potatoes; mix well...
