Hangin' With My Gnomies Tire Swing Planter

Just last week I braked for a roadside freebie- a tire! I tossed it in my trunk and headed straight to the store for spray paint and rope, LOL! This project was similar to one I'd seen years ago and I was ready to make it mine! I knew what I wanted and that tire was making it happen.

quickest way to clean furry furniture

Quickest Way to Clean Furry Furniture

We have 2 cats - one short hair and the other long hair and they both contribute to having incredibly furry furniture. They love to sleep on the top of the recliner or on the the sofa. I usually defuzz everything a couple times a month. But sometimes I need a quick clean because someone is coming over so I frantically look for the PET HAIR REMOVAL TOOLS which never seem to be where they should be. I tried tape to get the fur off. It takes alot of tape!I tried a lint tape roller. Similar result as tape.I tried a pet hair and lint remover brush. It works but takes alot of work and leaves some behind and for some reason is always not where I leave it.I could vacuum it with the special attachment on the vacuum but it is a pain to get it out, attach the tool to clean and put it away. Not quick at all.

Pergola Seating for Cookouts & Campfires!

When we bought this house it had an existing Pergola that was in need of some TLC. We considered tearing it down but decided we'd work on bringing it back to life. Fall was coming and this would be the perfect space for roasting hot dogs and making S'mores!
