Here's a cute Easter decoration made from a little straw broom, a stuffed bunny, plastic eggs and flowers.
My Christmas Cactus!
What nicer gardening decor than a blooming cactus. They make you come alive when they decide to bloom. I am lucky with the two large plants I have, because they bloom each season.
Punch Embroidery Tip
When making garments with punch embroidery, iron on interfacing to back of work when finished so that the embroidery does not pull out.
Crocheted Recycled Denim Rag Bag
Recycle those old denim jeans or shirts into a cool Rag Bag! I crocheted this rag bag using two old denim shirts that were worn out.
Never Try To Catch A Falling Knife
This is a tip when you are in the kitchen, whether preparing a meal or preparing to wash your dishes, utensils, pots and pans or putting the clean ones away. Never try to catch a falling knife.
7-11 Cups For Seedlings
This is a quick tip for starting those seedlings inside. I get people to save me their plastic cups from 7-11. They are perfect for starting plants and with the dome lid, it is like a mini greenhouse.
Use the Proper Tire Pressure
Ask the salesman what air pressure for the maximum mileage out of your tires. We ran both our vehicles tires at 35 psi, but some vary.
Use Christmas Angels For Wedding Decorations
Take out all your angels, Christmas or otherwise, to use in your wedding decorations. The angels I had were made out of a porcelain-type plastic and were probably meant for Christmas.
Scented Bath Vinegar
Fill the jar half full of chopped herbs or flowers. Heat the cider vinegar and the water to just below the boiling point. Pour this mixture over the chopped scent in the jar. Cover the jar and allow the mixture to sit for at least twelve hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. In medium nonstick skillet, cook and stir beef over medium high heat until browned.
Sunny Citrus Cakes
For cake, prepare cake mix according to package directions. Divide batter evenly between two 8 or 9 inch greased and floured cake pans. Bake according to package directions.
To make marinade, combine lemon juice, wine, oil, onion, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Place fish in marinade, turning pieces to coat all sides. Let stand 20 minutes. Lift fish from marinade; drain well.
Deviled Eggs With Ranch Dressing
Cut eggs in half. Put yolks in bowl and mash with potato masher. Add all other ingredients except paprika and mix well; then fill egg white halves with yolk mixture. Sprinkle with Paprika.
Griffon (Old English Sheepdog)
Griffon was my "vacation"! I cashed in vacation time to buy him. He is 4 years old and is an Old English Sheepdog. He came from FLA from a wonderful breeder. I had him flown to Charlotte.
Reduced Fat French Bread Pizza
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat non stick skillet with cooking spray. Set over medium heat. Add peppers and garlic, cook until softened, about four minutes. Remove from heat.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners, or lightly grease bottoms only. In large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended.
