I don't know if this is so much "home" related as it is garden related. Gorgeous spring and early summer produce is starting to show up in my grocery store, and I know many of us are starting our gardens so, I wanted to share this list of the best way to store fresh fruits and veggies. http://www.thevspotblog.com/2012/01/how-to-s... There's a free printable too.
1953 Chevy truck is now my grand kids "playscape" Some days it is a pirate ship others it is a garbage truck. Sometimes we just sit on the bench in the cab and go to the beach. Our Bar-B-Que pit is under the hood. Wooden step up into the back bed. We love it.

I guessed Texas before I checked. Yup the colors are just right This is so freaking cool. My
hubby would have a fit but I want one like this anyway.
Recycled glass jars and bottles can be put to lots of good use around the house for storage or decorating. The most challenging part of recycling glass jars, however, can be getting the
label completely off with no traces of the sticky gunk left behind. In the past I've used a product called Goo Gone for this job and it's always worked well. But guess what? You can make your own Goo Gone by simply combining vegetable oil and baking soda. I tested it out on a couple little glass jars and it really does work! You can click on the link below to read the complete instructions.
I wanted to find a unique way to display a few of my favorite ironstone pieces, and a super chippy piece salvaged from a farmhouse door ended up being the perfect thing. Once I removed
the panel from the old door, I just added hangers on the back. I affixed hangers to the back of the plates, rather than mounting them to the board, so I can switch them out if I feel like it. The piece above the display is salvage from an antique side table.
I also made a complimentary piece to display my favorite tarnished antique spoons, so I used some tongue and groove wood that was salvaged from a demolished Missouri courthouse as the backdrop for them.
Don't underestimate the butterfly – it's more than just a pretty garden addition! There are 561 known butterfly species in the United States and Canada, all of which pollinate your
flowers. Encourage butterflies to visit your yard and pollinate your plants by making a butterfly feeder. It's easy!

Note: Some evidence suggests dyes may have negative health effects on humming birds. If you have humming birds in your region, we suggest making this sugar solon without dyes and making your jar extra colorful, instead!
I saw one of these in a magazine years ago and I've wanted one ever since. It took me several years to collect affordable pieces but after that it was pretty easy. Here is some of how I
did it. For more specifics and lessons learned in the tutorial on my blog. #Itching4Spring

Drilling in metal or wood is one thing, ceramic and glass...a whole different critter. I'm
going to experiment on thrift store not-so-pretty items to get my technique down. If they break, no problem, I'll add them to the "future" table container. You know the one where stuff goes because you will make a mosaic table, sometime in the future.
