The finished lampshade.

Coordinating Lamp ShadeA couple of months ago, I submitted a reupholstered chaise lounge to this website to put in the den. I had leftover fabric and so I added trim to this plain lampshade to coordinate it with the lounge. They look great together.


Tomatoes after being tamed.

Taming TomatoesWhen our tomato plants start growing like crazy, I invented this holder made from a clothes hanger to keep the tomato plants from escaping the garden. Cut the wire into 6" pieces. Using pliers, curve into a U shape and curve both ends. Place U shape around straying tomato vine and attach to tomato cage. Do this to all vines to clean up the garden area.

How to Fix My Perm?So I just got my perm yesterday around 11:30 and it took about 2 hours. After I was done, I had lunch and did all the usual stuff after then went to bed. Woke up and basically all my curls were gone. Will this fix itself or do I need to have it done again?


A television with a film on it.

Removing Vapor Film?How do I remove the vapor film collected on my TV (most importantly) and other surfaces caused from vaping (not smoking) inside. It is a small space and despite the remedies I've tried, nothing seems to work. It simply smears the stain and moves it around. You can see the smear around the flash in the pic. I've since resorted to going outside. But that doesnt fix the problem that already exists. Any help is appreciated.
