Making Jewelry! As if I didn't have enough to do. I've always seen the strands of beads at the craft stores but just kept walking by. One day, I just thought, how hard can it be. So, I bought one of their "Class in a Box". I did all of the projects and got an idea on how to do it and some basic techniques. I was just wanting to make my own jewelry. So, I bought another book, some supplies and made myself a couple of necklaces. The red bead necklace is one I made for myself. A…Continue
I had a Mosaic tile bistro table where the tiles around the edges were constantly falling off. I was going to just throw it away when I was thinking how I could save it and either restore it or transform it. I don't remember now how I came up with the idea of a rope table. Maybe I saw one in magazine or one of the many emails I get. At any rate, I searched the internet to find out how to make one. I used the instructions from this site: …Continue
Recycle those old scented sachets once they lose their scent. I use them in picture frames to create a beautiful room wall accent. Greeting cards work well too, I've done this with Christmas cards that I just hate to throw away. They look great on the wall at Christmas time or on an accent table.
It can be done relatively inexpensively too. In this example, I purchased a double 5x7 frame with the Mat from Walmart for about $10. Then I emptied the stale sachets (or you can empty…Continue
About every 2 years I donate my hair to Wigs for Kids. An organization that makes wigs for kids who have lost their hair to Cancer treatments, burn victim or disease. An organization I support. It's an Ohio based organization very similar to Locks of Love out of Florida. Both very worthy organizations.
This is around my 5th donation now and it takes me about 2 years to grow it to a length I can give them the 12 inches they require and still have shoulder length hair after…Continue
If you live in a cold, snowy climate like I do and long for a splash of color in your landscape, try interesting conifers.Most gardeners are familiar with blue spruce, which shows off lovely silvery-blue needles all year long. Its cool hue is a wonderful subtle accent to the landscape.
Look around and you can find varieties that show off other shades, as well. For example, the golden mugo pine shown here offers rich green needles in spring, summer, and fall; in winter they turn a bright shade of gold. There’s another full-size pine, ‘Taylor’s Gold’, that does the same thing. You can find gold versions of many others, as well — from junipers to false cedars.
It’s easy to add an evergreen or two to your yard for year round beauty.
Sue has also shared some great lessons about how she’s saved money while creating her garden. For example, a variety of salvaged objects, which she procured from garage sales and even her city’s landfill, act as garden ornaments.

As you’re untangling lights and hanging stockings with care, have you ever wondered how those gorgeous homes on Pennsylvania Avenue get decked out for the Holidays? Well this year, the elves at Better Homes and Gardens traveled to Washington D.C. to help decorate the Blair House (The President’s guesthouse where dignitaries stay when in the city.) as part of the State Department’s Magazine Holiday Design Showcase.Together with interior designer Elaine Griffin and garden designer John Carloftis, we made the Blair House’s two parlors and courtyard holiday-ready.
Whether you’re just starting your holiday decorating or looking for tips to improve your decorating next year, here are a few expert tips taken straight from the Blair House:
1. No More Red and Green. Instead, let your room inspire your holiday color scheme. We chose a coral, pomegranate, and yellow-green color scheme to compliment the coral-colored upholstery in the front parlor.
2. Mix and Match. Modern elements really pop in the historic parlors. Interior designer Elaine Griffin recommends using modern elements – such as graphic throw pillows—in classic rooms and classic elements in modern homes for visual interest.
3. Bring the Outdoors In. Mini conifers were sprinkled throughout the back parlor to tie in the lush Christmas tree and elements of the courtyard. Better Homes and Gardens’ interior designer Joe Boehm designed a 3-step mini-conifer centerpiece that will look good in any room.
4. Don’t Forget the Garden. Connect your indoor holiday decorating to your exteriors by repeating elements. Garden designer John Carloftis used stainless-steel orbs that mimic the mercury glass ball ornaments used inside.
OK, that was a really bad pun about Christmas gifts. But these hand-painted Christmas ornaments shaped like fishing lures make the perfect gift for an angler (like my Dad) or anyone who has to share a house with an angler (like my sister-in-law Christina).
How does a non-fisherwoman such as me know about these beauties? The Heddon Company sent me a box of Collectible Punkinseed Decorative Ornaments (only 5,000 sets will be made) so I could see the similarities for myself. The faux lures look especially good when they're dangling from the branches of a Christmas tree. Each holiday package comes with 12 replica lures, model number X9630 ($19.99). And for a limited time, they come with a free Heddon Rattlin' Spook valued at more than $7.
