I LOVE this idea for my garden! Did you know that you can grow another complete celery
stalk from the bottom piece that you cut off and throw away? Cut off the end that you would normally "throw away" and then place it in a small dish filled with warm water.
Next "pot" the celery stalk (Stalk Side Up) or place in your garden. Just dig a small hole, fill it with water and set the end in the hole, then cover it up with an inch or so of soil. Water thoroughly. That is it! Now the "end" will grow into a full stalk of celery! Rinse and Repeat and you never have to buy celery again! Talk about a way to save money! This photo is taken on day 7 and as you can see it is working!

I am definetly trying this! My husband will think Im nuts but I'll show him!! lol!
Im definetly trying this..I got a new oven recently and I was making a sweet potatoe
cassarole and had tinfoil wrapped around it while cooking. After the hour that it cooked, I went to take it out and it wasnt finished and the sweetpotatoe casserole spilled all over the oven, inside the door, the floor and into the drawer underneath. What a huge mess I have to clean! I wiped up as much as I could but it baked on. I cant wait to try this!! Ill take pictures and post them!!
I always lusted after the hanging ladders in Pottery Barn displays. Since I don't like to spend Pottery Barn prices on things I can make myself, I decided to wait it out and find a ladder
that I could work with for my patio. When I found an old ladder at an antiques vendor booth, I knew it had to be mine. I brought it home finagled my husband into hanging it for me using lengths of chain and "C" clamps attached to our patio roof. Then I used simple hooks screwed into the wood of the ladder to hang the mason jars. I added some sand and tealights, and a Moravian star as a centerpiece.
Altogether between the ladder, the mason jars and the star lantern I think I might have formed a trifecta of perfection. :)
When I'm not entertaining I take the mason jars down from the ladder and sit them on the table in case a strong wind blows through. Don't want glass on my patio!
The ladder "chandelier" is one of my most favorite projects ever, especially since it is what drew me into the Hometalk community over a year ago. I happened upon a post here while randomly searching the internet. I shared my idea with you guys in someone else's thread and it received such great feedback that I stayed and never left! :) The awesome Miriam I might have had a lot to do with that! So, thanks! #Bestof2012
