Spray Starch Time SaverI bought a can of spray starch at Walmart. It works well, but a hassle. I spray an arm, then iron. I spray a yoke, then iron, I spray a cuff, then iron. I was picking up and putting down that can of starch as much as I was ironing. I came up with an idea I wanted to try.

 

A satin hanger with pearl buttons on the shoulders.

Satin Hangers With ButtonsI love satin hangers for my lightweight sweaters, but it was always difficult to keep the sweaters on the hangers. To solve this problem, I simply sewed 2 pearl buttons a couple inches from the ends of the hangers.

 

A Siamese cat in the garden.

BambooWe rescued Bamboo in May 2020. She was brought to the shelter when she was pregnant and we got her after she was done feeding her litter and they were old enough to be adopted out.

 

The completed circle plant trellis.

Circle Plant TrellisDo you have plants that need a trellis? You can make 4 circle trellis for just ~ 25 cents each, versus paying over $10 for one. Here's a quick, easy & inexpensive tutorial on how to make a circle trellis (for my Hoya plant).

 

The completed bottle decor on a granite countertop.

Bottle DecorI made this cute decor using old food bottles: two Snapple drink bottles, a Worcestershire sauce bottle, and an old maple syrup bottle.

 

A beautiful scene from Jiuzhaigou, China.

Beautiful Scene in JiuzhaigouI have been in Jiuzhaigou in 2019. It's very beautiful, just like my dream scene.

 

A bowl of Instant Pot Lemongrass Chicken (Ga Kho Sa)

Instant Pot Lemongrass Chicken (Ga Kho Sa)This is one of my family's favorite recipes. The meat comes out tender and fragrant. As a note, I use heaping tablespoon measurements for the garlic, shallots and lemongrass. My husband loves chicken with bones and my kids like boneless so I do half and half for this recipe. If you don't add bones, I would add a tablespoon of Better Than Bouillon chicken broth.

Cleaning Windows and Mirrors Without StreaksI've been in the housecleaning business for a little over 8 years now. Always hated cleaning windows and sliding glass doors. I had tried every cleaning product you could think of. One day I ran out of products and ideas and just used water and a squeegee. WORKED! No streaks, no foggy residue. It was a miracle!

 

Questions

A small wooden end table next to a bed.

A canvas painting of people, trees and huts.

A metal item on a grassy field.

What Are These Metal Items?What is this implement/machine? Found it on my nephew's Wyoming ranch. The wheel/gear may--or may not--be related to it.
