A tree in flower at sunset.

Beautiful Flowers at SunsetThis picture is of a tree right next to our house outside my bedroom window. It's beautiful and it blooms white and pink flowers every summer. I just had to take a picture of it!


A bowl of pumpkin soup with autumn leaves underneath.

Autumn Soup RecipesAutumn is a perfect time for comforting and savory soups, as the leaves and temperatures start to fall. It is also harvest time so there are lots of seasonal ingredients available, like pumpkins, potatoes and other hearty vegetables that combine well in soups and stews.


The app being used as a remote.

Fire TV App as RemoteFor some reason our Amazon fire stick remote stopped working. I changed the batteries several times and tried troubleshooting before thinking of purchasing a remote replacement. Guess what? A remote replacement is almost the same price as purchasing a new Amazon fire stick with remote.

Ultimate Trapping Method for GnatsMy plan was to add information to my existing post on trapping gnats. I decided the information was good enough to warrant a post of its own.


A cat box lined with newspaper.

Litterless Cat BoxHere is a free and cleaner way to have a cat box. After 30 years of being a cat parent, I have found that by simply lining newspaper inside a litter box, it is much more cleaner, not as time consuming, and free with newspaper donations. Plus, you are recycling newspapers.

Decalicious Dresser Makeover - painted three drawer dresser with large rose decal.

Decalicious Dresser MakeoverThis was an unwanted, inexpensive dresser someone had set out in front of their house. I took it home and decided since it was free, I could be a little adventuresome with it. And this is what my husband and I did!


Soaking dishes in bleach water.

Bleach Water for Rinsing DishesMy complex shares a very large waterheater between 4 units. So sometimes, getting grease off my dishes isn't easy, as the water is actually hotter in the bathroom than in the kitchen.


A chair with a woven fabric seat.

Repairing an Old ChairI love this little chair, but it needed help. I sanded it, stained it with natural Minwax stain. Then I started the seat. I made the seat by using rag strips, braiding, and finally weaving.

Ham and beans in a bowl.

Dollar Tree Country HamIn the cooler at Dollar Tree, I saw some packages of cured ham for $1.00. It looked like a bargain to me and I thought it sure would make some good seasoning for a pot of navy beans.



A wooden Bassett dresser.

Value and Era of a Bassett Dresser?So I bought this at the Salvation Army about 6 years ago for my elementary aged son. I never looked at the brand. Except for some dings where the handles are, the dresser has been a pretty solid piece over the years. I saw a Bassett stamp on the inside and did a search, shocked by how expensive their furniture is (I don't think I spent over $50 for it).


A Eureka Special push lawn mower

Value of "Eureka Special" in Working Condition?I've been able to discover my old mower was made by the Eureka Planter Company, likely in the late 40s (apparently the metal handle came in late in the 40s). It still works well and seems to be in quite good condition for its age. Any thoughts on value?


A doll with long dark brown hair wearing a light brown floral dress

Identifying a Porcelain Doll?I would love to find out some information about this doll that I was given. I cannot find any markings on it, but from the shoes it looks like it's older. I am not too sure. I would love to know what type of doll this is if it's a older version are newer version just made to look older.

Identifying a Ceramic Pot?My mother has this vase that she purchased at a second hand yard sale, it has a very unique signature. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with the artist?

Sharing Expenses with a Live-in Boyfriend?I moved with my bf. We had an argument with him regarding sharing the expenses. He is not clear and just told me that couples help each other. I'm gonna leave my job to move with him, but as of now I don't have source of income. We were at the grocery he told me we need to share at least half. I thought he was kidding me and when we were at the counter he told the cashier to split it.


A silver thimble with overall pattern and blue stones set in the rim

Age and Value of a Silver Thimble?Can anyone tell me how old and how much this thimble could be worth? I can't find a sterling mark as of yet.


A wooden rocking chair.

Is This a Murphy Chair?I recently purchased this chair from Facebook Marketplace for $60. I was wondering if it may be an antique Murphy chair. It has the unique designs that look identical to a Murphy chair. No labels or stamps on it though to tell what company made it. It has a beautiful design on the upper back and wicker seat. I am just wondering if I got a treasure and didn't realize it!
