Store Desk Supplies in Vintage SuitcaseInside a shabby chic suitcase on or under my coffee table I keep notepads, stationary, pens, scissors, stamps, etc. When I need to use these things while watching TV or on phone, everything is right there and I don't have to get up and go to my desk search for things.

 

refilled hand soap bottle

Frugal Hand Soap RefillsI am always running out of liquid hand soap. And always forgetting to buy it. I was cleaning out my closet upstairs where I keep all my extra toiletries and found all these shower gels that always come in the gift packs I get as presents. I do not use shower gel.

Borrowing EyesBetween age and infirmity, I often do not see what's right in front of me, and I am plagued with not being able to find things. When someone comes to visit, I ask to "borrow" their eyes to look for these things. Often they are found within minutes and we both have a good laugh.

Kitchen Paint Color AdviceI have an old house with golden pine floors that I'm refinishing. The woman at Lowe's recommended painting the old cabinets black to bring out the natural colors of the pine. I found gorgeous dark green granite-look countertops for free. So all I need to decide on is paint colors for walls and trim.

What Breed Is My Dog?I brought home this cute little guy from the humane society. I was told he is 12 weeks old, 5 lbs., and a terrier mix. He has an incredibly soft coat and an interesting looking tail. In our backyard, he likes to put his nose to the ground and pull up chunks of grass. Not sure what he is?

Dog With Stress IncontinenceI have a 2 year old German Shepherd/Lab mix. He was always a difficult one to train, but being very patient worked. For the past year or so he has been wandering off acting scared and pees on himself whenever I tell him to go to his kennel or do something that he doesn't want to do.

Troubleshooting AC Thermostat CircuitThis is a tricky one. I wanted to see what it could be before someday the electrician shows up. Every 20hrs or so our thermostat goes blank and the last AC tech said that there might be a short in the power switch which when turned off shuts off all power to furnace/AC and when turned on gives it power.

Hair Removal Wax on Faux Suede CouchI'm hoping someone out there knows how to get hair removal wax out of faux suede. It is Satin Smooth soft wax. I've read about the iron over the cloth for candle wax but I'm worried it won't work the same way. The ice cube in a plastic bag trick doesn't work. Hair removal wax stays sticky even when it's dry.

 

sitting puppy

What Breed Is My Dog?I got this puppy when she was 5 weeks. The parents were Boxers. When we picked her up at 5 weeks her nose was out further and I felt she looked a lot different than my last Boxer by a lot. The owner we got her from said the mother was like that and as she got older she looked more like a Boxer.
