We have a big beautiful Silver Maple tree in our front yard which every homeowner knows means lovely shade and gutter blockage. Naturally, the seasonal loss of leaves results in many dropping or blowing into the gutter. If not attended to regularly, gutter blockage can cause a plethora of pricy problems for any homeowner! For example, rotting of the wood fascia around your home, termites attracted by the wet wood, leaky roof and ruined landscaping to name a few! The sloping nature of our lot creates several issues when it comes to gutter maintenance. We decided to make a gutter cleaner that would not break the bank, but eliminate having to haul out a ladder every time we needed to clean them, especially when the block happened while it was raining. During leaf fall, we screw a 3" hole saw cutter onto the end of the drop-down end to allow a better grab of more matter.

I had bought these old TV trays at a garage sale with the intent of refinishing them using chalk paint but after seeing all the posts on faux marble finish, I decided to try this instead. This was a great project to try this on. Now perhaps I'll try this on my laminate kitchen counters...

But here is my solution to storing them and a couple of ideas of how I use them

Happy November friends!! The count down to the holiday season has officially started, and the Christmas decorations have taken over the stores. But before we jump straight to Christmas cheer, I wanted to share a simple Thanksgiving decoration idea with you. Every November, as a family we do something throughout the month to help us all remember to be more grateful. In years past we've done the Thankful Pumpkin idea- which we love. But this year I wanted to do something that we didn't have to throw away, and could be stored easily. So I decided to make a Thankful scroll to hang in our dining room all November long. The idea is that we can add to the scroll throughout the month, and get our families in on the fun when they are here for Thanksgiving as well. I'm excited to see it filled out, and to have a visual reminder all month of how very blessed we are."It's not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy."
