This particular plug-in pendant light came about when we were visiting my parents. My mom had this planter from the yard in her back porch. She wasn’t sure what she was going to do with it, but I immediately saw it as a plug-in pendant light.
Easy. Inexpensive. No-sew. Drop cloth curtains are beautiful, functional and perfect for your home!I researched different drop cloth options and ended up buying these from amazon. I didn’t want seams and I wanted them to be long. I only ordered two, but if you want them bunched up or more full, order two more.
So, whether we like it or not, winter is coming! I thought I'd do a little post about some last minute projects I'm doing to get my yard and garden ready for winter. I absolutely love gardening and yardwork, but when we moved into an apartment a few years ago, I thought that was a done-deal! 😥 However, after talking with my landlord, he gave me full reign of the yard! So I definitely took advantage of it! I planted a garden, made several planters, did some landscaping... and have more plans for next season! But, it's now time to wind down and get ready for winter. Here's a few projects I'm doing to prepare for winter ...Garden beds...
We use our silverware every single day, and I’m assuming you probably do, too. But is it really as clean as you think it is? Sure, you pop them in the dishwasher after eating and you use the best dishwashing detergent money can buy. Good enough, right?Nope.

I’m all about green cleaning ideas and homemade cleaning products. So when I found this recipe for a carpet freshener I thought, "let’s give it a try." We just got a second dog ( a cute puppy that has stolen our heats), and all our carpets could use a little freshening up. I was a little skeptical about this at first, but two days after I used it, a neighbor stopped by and took a deep breath and then asked me what yummy thing I was baking. She was so surprised when I told her it was my new carpet freshener. It definitely covered up the pet smells. Here’s the recipe:
Homemade Fabric Softener? Why not! I started making my own DIY Laundry Soap, click here for recipe. about five years ago and I haven't looked back since then.

My mother used these copper-bottomed pots for year and years and gave me some when I left for college. They are pretty great pans and I love using them, but over time the bottom gets tarnished and dirty looking. Thankfully, my mother also taught me how to get them clean and bright looking again! I've since learned of two more ways to get them clean too. We'll start with my mother's method first.

Most of my projects have been small jewelry pieces but today I have finished a much larger project.
