A travel mug with a foam koozie at the bottom.

Coffee Travel Mug TipsSometimes, I just get in a hurry and don't think. When trying to take the top off my coffee mug, I all too often put the opening right next to my shirt on my chest for some 'leverage' and duh, coffee stain! I'm learning. Much better when you make sure the opening is to the side, when taking off the lid.


makeup brushes on top of a toothpaste holder.

Travel Toothbrush Holder for Makeup BrushesI never used this toothbrush holder for toothbrushes but really needed a case for my new makeup brushes. The toothbrush holder works very well for storing and protecting them.


Use Broken Canopy for Parts

Use Broken Canopy for PartsWe lost our shade structure during an unusually stormy and windy soccer game one fall. My brother had purchased the same structure and broke his frame in a similar manner. Instead of throwing them out, we took apart the broken leg and replaced it from one of the good ones from my brother's frame.


A woman using a microwave.

Microwave Candy RecipesYou don't need a stove to make candy, many recipes can be made right in the microwave. This is a great way to teach kids to cook.

Chocolate Almond BarkWhen I was a little girl in the 1960's, my parents would treat my brother and I once a month with a special trip to the original Boehm's Candy Kitchen that was at the base of Snoqualmie pass near Seattle. Boehm's candy is some of the finest in the world; I can attest to that.



Wildflowers at sunset.

Wildflowers and Sunsets of SerenityThis absolutely beautiful picture of yellow daisies, dandelions to make a wish upon, bunches of petite white flowers, peace. Long grass and pretty green weeds, this is my garden of sunshine, my garden of peace. This is heaven.


A red-tailed hawk on a branch.

Eyes On The Prize (Red-tailed Hawk)I almost walked right past this handsome fella at the park last fall. He was perched above my head watching the nearby bird feeder looking for lunch. Luckily I looked up and saw him. He was very close to me and I was surprised to see him right above the very busy walking trail.


Red leaves with snow.

Vibrant RedsA splash of red on a snowy day.


A dog looking up at the camera.

BaxterWe got Baxter from the Humane Society. He came in with two siblings and his mother, who was a full breed boxer. Baxter and his siblings were found on the side of the road and rescued. When we saw him, we knew we had to have him.


A painted bottle with embellishments.

Bottle PourI had some odds and ends of leftover paint and I love decorating bottles, so I made this project. This is made from a Snapple drink bottle.


Using a card to lift up the tines that hold the picture.

Card To Lift Edge of Picture FrameSome picture frames have these little backings that you need to open. Using your fingers to open the backing can hurt after awhile, so this is what worked for me.



A dresser with 5 drawers.

Value of Dresser?Can you tell me about this dresser and value?


A young dog sitting in a dirt yard.

Is My Dog a Malinois?This is a picture of my dog. Is it a pure Belgian Malinois?


A set of encyclopedias.

Value of Encyclopedias?How much is a complete set of 2002 New Standard Encyclopedias, Volume 20 worth? Great condition


A hardbound dictionary with a black cover.

Value of 1941 Webster's Unabridged Dictionary?I have a 1941 Webster's unabridged dictionary. This is a great dictionary with pictures and maps. But at 6inches thick, it's a bit daunting for mobile office use. Would love someone to love it like we have.


A Mersman side table with an upper shelf.

Value of Mersman End Tables?Can you tell me what two of these might sell for, please?
