Re: The price of high end faucets and toilets!!!

In For the Home Talk 1411929786.15

I like Lowes for their assortment to choose from . Someone mentioned Kohler , which is a good brand . We need to replace 2 bath faucets ; I'm buying the arched faucet style ( a small version of the kitchen pot filler faucets ) , in brushed nickel . I guess I'm not looking at high end , because these are in the range of $100-$200 . Continue Reading

 

Re: I THINK IT'S TIME TO PULL THE PLUG ON TEMP-TATIONS.

I think they base major decisions like that on sales & returns . I doubt complaints without returns make much of an impact . I read complaints about quality issues , in many different forums .....clothing , shoes , jewelry , makeup , etc. ......Recently I've had quality issues with a home decor line . I'm just going to stop buying from that line for now . If I read that things improve with time , I may purchase from that line again , in the future . I have about 6 pieces of Temptations , and I only use them for serving . Read too many reviews about cracking , crazing , complete breakage u... Continue Reading

In the meantime , can anyone recommend other leggings in his line, that are very similar ? Thank you . Continue Reading

 

Re: WHAT DID YOU BUY FROM VALERIE'S 8-22 MORNING SHOW?

Update , had to return the snowman cloche scene , so disappointed :( ......the evergreens had few lights on them , and because there aren't lights situated in front of the children , the scene is in a shadow . One evergreen had literally 1 light on the front & 2 on the back . The other wasn't much better . The deciduous tree or shrub in the middle , looked awkward & had most of the lights on it ......but the lighting wasn't bright enough to make the glitter sparkle , or lend the scene the wonderland look it deserved . The lighting looked like it was applied without any thought or care... Continue Reading

Lots of fluttering ! ........Even after we stopped hanging the feeder a few years ago , every Spring they'd visit that window , looking for the feeder for a few years . They have amazing memories . Unreal . ..........enjoy the Fall weather ! The weather can't make up it's mi... Continue Reading

RYKA . I like everything about them .... The footbed is comfortable . Also, if you get a style with an adjustable Velcro strap , it's helpful if feet swell . Continue Reading

KJPA , wow , your yard sounds beautiful . Regarding your question , I'm wondering if your feeder solution is too sweet for them ? I make mine in a ratio of 4 parts water to 1 part sugar . Bring it to a boil for a minute , then let it cool before pouring in feeder . I only make enough to store in the fridge for about 3 days . I change the solution 3 times a week in very hot weather . I got all this info from instructions that were with the new feeder . .......btw, I found a good way to remember the ratio I read about ( 4:1 ) by thinking of a hand ....4 fingers & 1 thumb . Otherwise , I'd h... Continue Reading

I feel it bridges the gap from summer to fall nicely. I do all my fall decorating Oct 1st. If I do fall too early I get tired of it then put out x-mas then I get tired of that so I stick to the seasons and not go too early. Sunflowers are a GREAT idea! I have an ivy wreath on my front door now and don't put out my maple leaf wreath until the colors change on the two Japanese maples flanking my front door. I'm going to look f... Continue Reading

On 8/27/2014 Grade1Teach said: The weather on Long Island this summer has been unusually cool too. However, this week we are hotter than we've been all summer. The humidity is wayyyy up too! Either way, I'm going to decorate my home for fall this weekend. I always do it Labor Day Weekend, regardless of weather. Everyone around here heads back to school next week. And, back-to-school means fall is coming. I'm always ready for leaves, apples, pumpkins, and scarecrows this time of year. I haven't purchased anything new this year, but I have three large bins filled with fall décor. It's al... Continue Reading
