Orange Metal Stand - What to do with iit?

Not sure what this was. Seems like something you might find in a service station that holds some car parts.

Found it in the trash and decided to take it home, since I can't seem to leave perfectly good items go in the trash. Now that I have it, I have no idea what to do with this bright orange thing. Any ideas ????

Fall Update of Grey Rocking Chairs

Remember those great free rocking chairs I got from my neighbor? Well, we use them all the time and I wanted to give them a fall update. I had hoped to post this before Halloween, but that never happened. As you can see, I had a Halloween pillow on one of the rockers. It has since been removed.

I created the Autumn banner by cutting up some fabric I had - brown and tan canvas.

 I cut some rectangles and then folded them to cut some points.

Then I used letters that I had purchased from Walmart that I used in my Fall plaque.
I placed the letter on the fabric and then used a magic marker to fill in the letter.

I attached the letters to some twine with my hot glue gun. I had purchased the basket at Long and Scott Farms for $2 - lid included.

We have tea out here in the evenings while the dogs play and we talk about our day.

These rocking chairs are just great and we are using them all the time. Not bad for something free. 
What shall I do with them for Christmas?

Apricot-lime Shrimp

I love dishes that you can add anything to and it seems to work. This dish does that for me. It is easy to prepare and makes a delightful meal. Not too heavy and not too many calories. I found this recipe in Family Circle a few years back. I have made many modifications to it. Here is my latest version.

Did you get my text?

I think that was what my cat - Claire was saying. My husband and I were in the kitchen cooking yesterday, when Claire jumped up on the counter. My husband keeps his phone, iPad, keys and other goodies on the corner.

Get stubborn stains out of your linens!

Did you ever pass up a lovely linen because it had a stain on it? Or maybe your linens are in good shape except for one or two stains. If you need to get rid of a stain, then this remedy might be the answer. I say, "might" since some stains are just NOT meant to come out. 

Here is a tablecloth I bought for 50 cents since it had a couple of stains.
