Happy Thursday Day dear friends. If you stopped by my Wednesday Party, you heard about my week with the problems with attempting to put in a new septic system. since then, the trees have come down and sod has been moved and we are now waiting for them to install the new septic next Tuesday. I will be so glad to be able to wash when I want. I can't do two loads in a row. It could be worse. 

This week I pick some great How To's for you to check out. I hope you find a project to create.

 I love pillows and have brought several over the years. I always think you can't have enough pillows. When I was in the Dollar Tree, I saw these Halloween bags that were so cute. I knew they would make great pillows.

DIY Garage Tire Rack

DIY Garage Tire Rack

When we were in Vermont earlier this month, my son was trying to clean up his garage for winter. He had 8 snow tires that were taking up too much space and asked what can we do with them.We tossed around some ideas and then I looked on Pinterest and saw a hanging tire rack and he said, yes, that works.

Now all my hubby had to do was figure out how to make it and he did.

Updated Rocking Chairs

Updated Rocking Chairs

When we purchased our new home, they left two rocking chairs on the front porch.  The chairs were sturdy so we kept them. However, they did not go with the new paint color of the house.

DIY Hair Mask - You Have to Try

I have given you some DIY recipes for skin care, especially for crows feet. One of my favorites is the egg white mask. I do this at least once a week. Actresses have been using various versions of this recipe for years. 

Today I want to share with you my hair mask. Not only do we want our skin to look beautiful, but we also want our hair to look lovely. Just like your skin, age takes its toll on your hair too… often leading to a dry, dull, or brittle look and feel.

I have only been using this for about 6 weeks, but I love it. My hair has never felt so soft and silky.

What are Candle Cozies?

What are Candle Cozies?
So glad you asked that question. They are cute little crocheted sleeves that fit around small glass candle holders.

Eclectic Red Barn: Candle Cozies :Could you use a little spring decor, cute favors, tealight holders?  You can get a free crochet pattern to create your own
They come in multiple colors that you can use for springtime, Easter or just added to your home decor.

You could even use them as favors or decoration. You could fill them with candy, small flowers, little tealights, or even small cupcakes. Wouldn't they be cute on a tray?

You have two options to get your own cozies:
  1. A pattern to make your own cozies (click on the picture below) or 
  2. I can make them for you.

You don't crochetNo problem, I can make them for you. I will provide a set of three different color cozies (the candle holders are NOT included) for $5. You may pick the colors you want.  Just email me or comment below and I will be in touch.

What to do with a Swiffer container?

I don't use the Swiffer too often, it is more my husband's idea. I tend to use one were I can wash the pad instead of tossing it away. I guess if he wants to clean the floors, then I should be grateful and I am.

Now he has used these in the past to hold some of his things in the garage.

Cheering up the light

I am continuing my Christmas decorating on the cheap at our other home. I made the JOY banner, the book page banners for the windows and now for the dining room light. 

This was very easy and rather cheap. I saw this light decorated on Pinterest for Christmas and for some reason it stayed with me. So when I had finished my banners, the light looked so plain. I still had some berries left and the light called to me.

Adding the holidays to wire baskets

In many parts of the country, the hanging baskets have been put away. However, here in Florida, mine stay up all year. Usually this time of year, I don't have potted plants in my baskets since the selection is minimal with holiday flowers in demand. So what to do with those wire baskets?

Decorate them of course.  Many of you have pine trees where you can get fresh pine, but here not so much or at least not the good kind. I went to Home Depot and they had two carts filled with pine branches that they trimmed off the trees and said I could have all I wanted. Yeah!! 

Free pine branches are added to wire hanging baskets.

Vintage Doilies Make JOY Banner

We all know that Christmas is a joyous time. The music, shopping, baking, decorating and wrapping presents. Not to mention parties and quests. I love this time of year. However, a slight twist was added. Instead of having Christmas here in Davie, we decided to have it at our home north of Orlando. No problem, until my daughter who is flying in from California said, "are you decorating the house"? Yikes! Both houses?

Usually, we just put up outside lights. Now I have to do the inside. I went through some of my decorations to see what I could use up there, since I had already decorated the house here, not much. I decided to make as many decorations as I could. I did not want to buy enough stuff for two homes. 

So this JOY banner was my first creation.
