A card showing when to change your HVAC filter.

Changing HVAC FiltersEver wonder when the last time you changed your HVAC filters was? Using a bright colored index card, I write the years, with corresponding months, leaving room for my date I changed the filters for the next three years. I make one for each filter location. I attach it to the wall with two hook and latch dots. I also attach a pen this way, so its always at the ready!


A cabinet containing spices and other cooking ingredients.

Organizing Your Spice CabinetMy spice cabinet was a mess! It had been ravaged during the holidays when we needed ingredients that aren't always used year round. Some baking supplies had been mixed in and some bulk spices were still in bags instead of bottles.

A porcelain doll in a box.

Which Unique Porcelain Doll Collection is This?I'm trying to find this doll as a reference for pricing, but I have no idea how to identify it without taking it out of the box. I'm trying NOT to open the box. I tried to find a website that maybe lists these dolls, but I can only find a few different dolls with the "Unique Porcelain Doll Collection". Thank you!

What's Wrong With My Cat?I have two female cats, both a little over 2 years old. The one is perfectly fine, but the other one goes into heat all the time. She stays in heat for a long time, she's extremely vocal to the point where I cant sleep. She also pees places when she's in heat and it seems to be one specific spot.


An ornate wooden desk.

Information About Wooden Desk?I bought this desk. I wanted to find a desk I could use. It looked rough and I wanted to restore it. The more I look at it, the more interesting the desk is. I would love to find out if anyone can determine who the maker is what time period is from.


A figurine of a woman in a green dress.

Information About this Figurine?My wife and I were recently cleaning out her recently deceased grandmother's home and came across this ceramic figurine. It has a woman in a green dress and cat on top, with a mouse underneath. The piece looks like it would hold small jewelry (earrings, etc...) It is a little risqué (in my opinion), but I guess cute as well.


A drawing of a stuffed unicorn.

Help Identifying Childhood Toy?So I used to have this little stuffed unicorn named Sparkles. I am unsure if she had a tag with her name on it or not, but i remember using her tag to spell her name a lot. Yet I can't find any stuffed animal fitting the description.
