This pictures was sent to me by Bernice (for some reason it wasn't uploading on her computer.) It is the most wondrous sight I have ever seen. Many thanks to Bernice's friend Tamara in TX for sharing this picture!
I have made so many uses for these, I like the netted ones, I have them in three places now, one in the garage in my storage area that holds all my cleaning things, sprays, attachments,
ect. The next is in the guest room on the back of the bedroom door. This hanger holds all the needs a vistor may need: shampoo, toothpaste, bandaides, playing cards, hair tyes and so on and much more...... and the third is in my office/nana room that holds pens up high and toys down low.
I like to garden and love repurposing "anything", like the compass you'll see here that I made from an old concrete septic tank cover. Pics that follow are some of my outdoor projects:
made a bottle tree, a fish pond, grew and dried birdhouse gourds, made raised gardens, painted an old bench, painted rug onto my deck, harvested 40' bamboo, cured them and made a trellis, made a peaceful walking/sitting area in the woods out back. I'm a DYI'er that began as a financial necessity and grew into a passion.......By the way, if you haven't talked to the great people at Four Season Nursery yet, or shopped for mulch, gravel and plants, you're missing an opportunity. They are knowledgeable and dependable. My husband just smiles at me and hates to leave me the truck...he knows I'm going there for a load of something.
I checked out the apartment carefully and saw no signs of vermin, but the previous tenants advised me to "seal up all the holes around the apartment." How would you mouse proof an urban apartment? In NYC, all buildings have mice or bugs.

We moved to a farm over 6 yrs ago and the mice were HORRIBLE! We tried mouse traps with peanut
butter and even tried melting chocolate and putting it on the traps. The damn things figured out how to get it off with out setting off the traps. We found that after making sure everything was sealed good with steel woo and or expandable foam, Decon was the only way we could keep them under control. This past winter was the 1st time we had NO mice at all, but that is due to the fact that we now have 9 outdoor farm cats. I would suggest using Decon. People always worry about pets getting into it, so place it where they cannot reach it. We had one of our dogs get into it. We took her to the vet and he told us that it will NOT kill your pets. If they ingest too much and get sick, they will vomit it out. Rodents cannot vomit, so that is why it stays in their system and kills them. Good luck, in my opinion, there is very little that is worse than having mice!!
