Re: Easter is so early this year - will that influence your decorating?

LOL...nope. Already decorated for Spring/Summer! I understand everyone moves to the beat of their own drummer when it comes to when they change out their decorations from season to season and/or holiday to holiday. This subject is brought up quite often in fact. I decorate early for Spring/Summer because I have so many irons in the fire...so to speak from now through til about the beginning of June...arranging our station in the basement for winter sowing seeds, then potting & re-potting as time progresses into Spring, hardening off plants, preparing gardens, feeding birds (we feed the Ro...

Since they're on a 5 hour timer, so that means you'd have to change the batteries every 8 days! Really? Yes ...Maybe Val misspoke. If each goblet takes 3 AAA batteries and they only last 40 hours....OMG !!! Later on she mentioned that another product had 40 DAYS of glow time, so maybe she misspoke about the Hobnails. I keep wanting to say Hob Nob, btw. LOL! I suggest for someone to post on VPH's FB page fo... Continue Reading

Still Raining, Really?...Yikes, Ouch? Funny how when one spends time to help others that they become offended in the process. Most folks I know like to feel empowered by finding things out on their own giving them just some guidance/direction (links/info). I have given many helpful links and I am glad there are some folks that do appreciate it. Additionally, I guess I could be as easily offended by you since I didn't even get a 'thank you' for trying to help you. As I mentioned previously, without knowing the general whereabouts you're located it is difficult to say one way or the other if an... Continue Reading

On 1/22/2015 Still Raining said: Not going to commit to exactly what we have here in Oregon but for the last few weeks I am not getting many takers. We had two very cold snaps (for us) within the last two months and I wonder if hummers can do a little mid winter mini migration? Anyone know? Hi Still Raining, I guess I am confused by your inquiry. You don't want to commit to what you have at your place, and yet you want to know if any do a mini migration... I added very helpful links to my post (#9) in this thread...2 of which if you scroll through the initial page will have what species of ... Continue Reading

On 1/22/2015 wagirl said: Ok Susan--I meant rufus not rubys---a little harsh about the homework comment ! wagirl, And it a shame you are taking it too seriously. As far as I am concerned, that is what I did myself. I stated in the same post of all the hours I spent researching and doing 'my homework'... I call it 'homework' when I'm learning things through reading or otherwise, no matter what it is. I consider it a joy to do homework/learn. I was still going to college taking classes til a few years ago and I'm 55! What is harsh about homework? Continue Reading

I especially like the one with the drawstring I just don't 'get' the 'R' logo tag...can someone 'splain'? I love the ducks. I don't have all the same beliefs as this family, but I don't go over a check list of religious beliefs -prior to shopping. As far as them being stupid- they came from nothing and have made millions. Not quite "stupid," in my opinion. Phil hasn't been perfect and admit... Continue Reading

 

Re: thinking of painting - asking opinions

In For the Home Talk 1421879173.433

Our entire home is painted with 'flat' eggshell colored paint and it has been this color since we moved in 15 yrs ago. From what I understand, since the house was built back about 1994-1995, the color/paint has remained the same. I wash all the walls once a year and have had no need to paint...still looks fresh as if it has been newly painted. I like all the walls one color because it allows me to change everything else as I please at any time Continue Reading

On 1/21/2015 mominohio said: So nice to see 'regular' decor back up, isn't it? Much of mine has been down since last August, when the fall things came out. I still have a little bit of winter out. Some greens and pinecones, and a couple of snowmen strategically placed, but I'm back to about 90 percent regular now. It's like getting 'new' stuff, it's been so long. ITA! It's like a breath of fresh air! Please post pics when you finish changing your decor Continue Reading
