Hi Jess, This past weekend I made the recipe you suggested and it turned out great. Instead of diced tomatoes though I used 1/3 of a bottle of V8 juice that I wanted to move along. As I said, it was great and I have enough leftover for tonight's supper. Yum. Thanks.

And shop at sales season, you will save a lot of money if time is enough.
I think this is no best color; the best color of your bridesmaid dress is the color matched your wedding color, your wedding theme, it is your big day.
And the most popular color of bridesmaid dresses include: Navy blue, dark blue, burgundy, wine and green.

I DO NOT WANT THE PIGEONS DISTROYING MY BIRD FEEDERS BY HANGING ON TO IT. WHAT CAN I DO?
M. r, James wrote a story called The Doll's Housed that sounds just like that. BBC did a TV version but I don't know if it ever made the big screen.

How about freezing them in ice cube trays?

You will have to scrape off all the peeling veneer. Depending on how big the damaged spot is and its location will determine whether you can just fix this spot or whether you will have to refinish the entire top.
Sounds like the veneer separated. There are websites like this one with how to fix, but I have had no luck getting it right. They make it sound easy, but there are too many variables.
If the desk is of value, I would suggest have a professional refinisher look at it.
Be sure to get references before okaying the work.

Post back what you decide and hopefully a lovely finish to the repair!!
Nurturing Garden Daycare....providing compassionate care for your little sprout
Congrats on your venture!

Motto of where your child's mind an imagination grow!
American Meadows has them in quantity.
You have brought back memories for me as well,only my fondest memory was when we went to visit my Aunt. She collected the most unusual and beautiful buttons I had ever seen as a child! She sewed them to a hanging tapestry which made them even more amazing to me, I often wonder what ever happened to that tapestry. --- I still love buttons to this day.I didn't have mine in a tin, however. I have my loose buttons sorted by color and put in clear jars sitting on my window sill. My carded buttons are in a shoe box, plus I have others in plastic containers with dividers. I guess I have them everywhere!!! With some of them I make button flowers then make little flower arrangements in small vases.
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks Mina! Just saw that. My notifications don't work too far after a while so thanks for the heads up. I replied there. You made me very happy. THANK YOU!
What an imaginative and clever gal you are !!!
I made the olive spiders that you gave the how-to for in your pizza recipe were a hit and I commented. Thanks.
I love that you made them, Mina! This makes me so so so so so happy! Glad it was a hit and keep it going with the presentation. I think it's soooo fun to be artistic with food presentation :)
I never thought to use the skins and now you've given me a reason to keep them. I'll give it a try. Thanks.
That's a good idea and I'll try it. Thanks. What I've always done is let it dry out in the dish rack overnight then toss it back in the box in the morning.
Please don't spank the pup. That always makes it worse. Please consider taking him to the vet for a check. Any time a pup in my world has pee issues, if it isn't old age..not your issue...it is a UTI or other bladder/kidney issue.
If the pup gets a clean bill of health, then you may need to talk to tell vet about crate training. It is easy but requires consistency.
Prayers for you and your pup. Post back to let me know what the vet says
Dont spank him or yell at him. Take him to a vet to see if there is a urinary tract infection or other physical issue.
See the link. You have my fav..a kalanchoe!!!
If you clip or break carefully you can plant the clips and have a million of these. Mine flower red, but there are other colors. They are super hardy and mine grow in any condition!
A little TLC will bring this baby around! Happy growing!!!
This is some kind of succulent. Trim it back.
We had something similar in the early 2000s and it was sewage gases being forced up through the basement drain and the stench was bad. The plumber put a camera into the lines and found the issue was caused by maple tree roots damaging sewer lines. It was an expensive fix but it got rid of the issue. Have a reputable plumber scope out the drain if you have one. Good luck!! Post back what you find!
You may have an animal there that is living and defecating there. Examine more carefully
If you dont want to spend salon prices, go to a beauty school to correct this. Students are carefully supervised.
I am sure there are lots of home remedies out there and people will swear by them, but since you said you already have some damage, it might be time to call in a pro to give your hair a little TLC.
Sometimes doing it any other way is pennywise and pound foolish!! Hope you can get a quick fix and are happy with the results and your hair starts to mend!!
He looks like he is part pitbull. You can do a DNA test to find out for sure.
AWWW!!! I just want to hug that sweet face!!!
I have never met a DOGO, but I found a photo and yours looks like it has a lot of those markings:
Perhaps he is a mix!
At that age it is time to establish a good relationship with a vet so get his or her take on the breed!! Ours is awesome at breed ID. She looks at hips, teeth, bones, etc. and gives usually spot on guesstimates!!
Wishing you and the pup a long and happy life together!! Thanks for sharing the photos!
You may have the safety switch under the seat that is disengaged, and that is why it is not starting.
There is a manual online if you don't have it:
Or better yet, if that doesn't help, call the company before you start messing with it...you would not want to break it or invalidate a warranty if it has one.

Unless they are antiques, there is not much demand for them. Check on eBay for a few weeks to see what they are selling for.
Morse are sturdy machines. I am not familiar with this model and currently there are none with that number (or that look like yours) on eBay as sold auctions (or active).
When trying to value, eBay is the easiest way. I always tell people don't use current auctions, only SOLD auctions (it is a button on the left side of the screen--at least on my computer).
The best way to find today's market value is you will need to find the exact make and model and see what people actually pay to get an idea of today's current market value.
Once you find an exact make and model match, you will need to take up to 20% off the value if the sold one is PRISTINE...if it is one that is like yours that needs repair...then you have an apples to apples value and you are good to go! Y
You will also need to add 15-20% to the value if the SOLD ones are only the machine, since you have the whole set up (yes, it is a bit complicated because with sewing machines there are dozens of variables...there are attachments also that can add value so be aware of that and if you don't have them and a sold one does, you need to take 10-15% off the value).
There are lots of folks out there who still love and collect these work horses. They are a bug a boo to sell on eBay because it is to hard to pack and ship. You could do a local buy (pick up only) but that may take a long time...as it all about supply and demand.
So long story long, this site sums up valuing sewing machines much better than I can...so it is worth sharing....ismacs.net/
Seymour Mann dolls are mass-produced and lose their value. They are worth from $10 to $25.
These are pretty!
Right now there are no exact matches to these dolls on eBay at the moment and looking at SOLD dolls (to me) is the ONLY way to get an exact value of your dolls.
Unfortunately, generally, these dolls have not held their value, and some sell as low as .99 cents. This is why it is so important to check back to eBay frequently and look for an exact match in the SOLD section...then you will know today's current market value for your EXACT dolls.
It sometimes is challenging to find an exact match, but sometimes it is a matter of asking the search the right way in eBay or Etsy or even in Google.
I know when lot of folks list dolls on eBay they just list the general topic...like Seymour Mann and the baby dolls name or just the color of the hair or the color of the dress. They often don't use the numbers or series info.
It may take a lot of nose-work, but if you check back to eBay frequently, you can usually find an exact match.
Remember value is not the same as profit. If it is valued at $10, then your profit may be half that after fees and such. It may pay to list them on a free site like Facebook or Craig's List once you find the exact selling values...at least then there are no fees.
Seymour Mann was a real guy, who passed in 2004 www.giftsanddec.com/
He and the other more modern doll makers created quite the stir in the 70s-90s with series of dolls designed by their very creation to be "collectibles"...and we bought in hook line and sinker....I was one of the folks selling these back in the day...and they flew off the shelves with folks hoping to (today) have a nice little nest egg. Fast forward today and sadly, we just have a lot of pretty dolls with no value because a true collectible is something rare where there are 1 or 2 left in the world...not 1 or 2 thousand of a series. Who knew!
Since so many people are literally dumping dolls these days to get back shelf and closet space, it may pay to hold on to them because eventually it may come around that people miss having these pretty dolls and want to recreate a nice memory. You never know. Stranger things have happened!
No. You have to lift off the color and depositing the new blond color. This two step process is best left to a professional
It would seem that you should be getting the check. This is a question for social security. Make an appointment and bring documentation to show that she lives with you and that you are paying her expenses.
Your best bet is to look on eBay.
The drain pump motor may be broken.
It is shorted out. Wait until it dries out. If it still doesnt work you will have to replace it.
This is an antique and worth something. Take it to several dealers for appraisals
This is a mass-produced doll that has decreased in value. It is worth $25 at best
There are lots of good articles out there about setting boundaries.
This is one of them:
It is hard but being consistent is half the battle.
The whole situation sounds very stressful for everyone so it may be time to take a step back and get everyone to the table and give everyone tasks so they feel useful.
Maybe the teenage nephew can take grandma shopping or her son can take her to the beauty parlor.
If you all can have a QUIET discussion with your mother in law giving her insight if she can, it may help to clear the air.
If you are not able to have a quiet and calm discussion, do you have a trusted priest, reverend, rabbi etc. who could mediate for you? Sometimes a neutral 3rd party is all the situation needs to get it back on track.
Will send up lots of prayers for all of you!!
The divorce may be hard on him. I would be direct and honest with him and say, we need the space.
You are can come over but perhaps on the weekends, or when time permits I will call you, etc.
You both work full time and it's exhausting to have unwanted company over.
You need to set boundaries. He cannot come unless he is invited. If he calls and asks if it is ok to come, you have the right to say no. Tell him you need your privacy. He wont like it, but you have to decide what is best for you and your family.
Please share how YOU got rid of them.
They are not bed bugs.I have treated my home for those and didn't work.I have been suffering from these biting mites or whatever for 15 years and have tryed everything.Even went to hospital just to have doctor say to me (If you can't see them how do you expect me too and said there was nothing he could do for me so I just walked out).After that I quit asking because I didn't want to get put in a nut house because they thought I was crazy.But now they have gotten so strong its hard to fight them and its scaring me.
Please share how YOU got rid of them.
This is great!
I believe the musty odor is mildew & mold most likely from poor ventilation. Gassed build up causing the odor so unless you get rid of the source the problem will persist. A lot of things may mask the odor but not really eradicate it. Maybe placing a fan to move the air AFTER the problem is remedied may help. If you can smell it on another level you might want to call in an expert. It wont go away by itself. Keep the dehumidifier on though.
I would check if there is an exchange policy. I wouldn't want to risk shrinking the leather, it may not turn out how you'd like or not look as nice.
Yes, good to be freezer for up to 3 months.
Yes, make sure it's all defrosted before you bake them :)
Bullying should not be permitted! Hair is only natural. Do you want to shave your hair? Or you are comfortable as is? You can even reference YouTube, keeping our hair is natural and it's actually a trend!
The important thing here is what you want in order for you to feel happy with you. All bullying and yelling aside, do you want the hair off your arms? Would that make you ultimately happy? If so, have a heart to heart with your mum. Tell her about all the happenings, all the bullying, how you feel inside. You can tell her you don't have to put a razor to the hair on your arms and hands, that there are other methods of removal like creams. She can even assist.
I like to make pretty sachets that can be laid in a drawer or hung in the closet and I give some of them away as small "thinking of you" gifts.
Instead of using a coffee filter or plastic bag to enclose the scented cotton balls, loose soap shavings or dried lavender that I sometimes use , I wrap them in a 6 inch square piece of panty hose. A few drops of paper glue closes the little bundle.
It happens that I like to crochet and I make simple round doilies about 3 inches round, usually white or ecru colored. Two small doilies atop one another with the panty hose packet in the middle, drawn closed with a woven in 1/4 inch wide colored ribbon pretties up the little sachet. The 4 ribbon tails are tied into a bow for hanging the sachet and it also lets you open it up completely when you want to refresh the inside scent packet.
I like pretty things ... what can I say?
Cooking spray worked. So thankful since one was my moms Bowl I remembered from childhood!

Great idea, unless your burglar is hungry.

I once printed out a decal sized about 3 x 5 and stuck it under my shower head. After two years I removed it and it had not noticeably faded because it was printed with Durabrite ink which is what I always used to print my t-shirts as well.
what is the ratio
I'm seeing them on Kijiji for about $250. The range seems to be from $60 - $300, but I didn't check their sizes.

I have used Ballard Old South corn meal mix for years to make my dressing for the holidays. It use to come in a box. I have tried the Martha White in the bag and it is not the same, regardless of it says on the package. I havent been able to get it for about three years now. They said it has been discontinued.I and several other people has sent messages to the company. Good luck!!

You deserve smiles always! Sending you big big hugs! x
Truthfully - nothing about this doll looks familiar to me. Her hair is lovely but we cannot see the type of shoes she is wearing and although she looks like porcelain, it is possible that she has a cloth body?
This marking looks, to me, different than any I remember from when I used to sell dolls in retail stores.
Can you tell if the word Linda is engraved into the doll (like pressed in) meaning it was manufactured with it, or is it look like it could have been handwritten? I know doll makers who make their own often hand sign (and sell at craft shows and such, vs. the mass market sales). I am wondering if she was from such a venue?
Do you know any history at all...year, etc.?
There were lots of doll makers named Linda, but none (that I can remember) had a signature like this one,, which is what gets me so curious!
There is a doll site that cybergrannie has where people can send info with questions...hopefully she will post that site and you can send the pix there and ask to learn more about this doll. Those folks on the site she knows seem to be the TRUE experts...I just love dolls and sold them for years....that does not make me an expert (maybe some day)!
I am not 100% positive she was of the massed produced variety...she could be...but I can't say for sure...I will keep digging and see if I can learn anything else!
All of that said, if you are asking for value, it is critical to know exactly who she is to set a value on her.
Thanks for sharing! Will check back in if I learn anything more and will look for other posts!
It doesn't work still suck to the glass...

What a blessings you two found each other. I think animals know right where to go for "furever" What a sweet girl. Glad she can make you feel better and laugh.
Thank you. I will try to get better pictures of more of the doll.
Here is an image of a flea in various states...see if that matches...
Are you able to use both the flea collar and the Harts together ?
You can freeze sweet potatoes:
I liked the baked way myself!! I never thought to try them as bread. I am trying to go gluten free for health reasons and this sounds like a great idea to use them for bread.
It sounded so yummy, I just went to Google and found this:
I am going to try it. Aldi just started getting sweet potatoes so I can get some this weekend. WOW!! Thanks for the great idea!
Wishing your daughter all good health!!!
Yes, cook them first before you freeze them. You can have them fully prepared then frozen. You can also parboil them, freeze them, then take them out to use.
Cool!! Enjoy!!! Thanks for posting back!
Wishing you all the best!! Please post back to let me know if you found anything!!! Every town is different so it is helpful to learn what works and what doesn't! G-d bless you and yours!!
Thanks for the additional info!! If I am able, I will try to figure out some more on this....it fascinates me as it is so lovely!! If I learn anything, I will repost!! Thanks again for sharing!!
Thanks so much for your response. I do think it is a beautiful piece. Im thinking about having it refinished again. It has taken a beating in the last few years.
Im guessing that your 1920s estimate is about right. I know its at least 70 years old... just not sure how much older beyond that!
Thanks again. Have a great day!
Thank you for your response. I wish I could, however, I had it refinished many years ago and didnt think to do that at the time.
The bottom of the chair was also recovered so it does not have any visible markings. I know its at least 70 years old but... not sure how much older beyond that it is.
Thanks for your reply!
Thank you so much for your thoughtful response. I wish it had a manufacturer or some identifying feature but.. back in the day, when I had it reupholstered, I didnt have the antique value on my mind and didnt consider looking for identifying features. I do know that it had at least 40 years of wear before I took ownership of it. It belonged to an elderly Aunt of a good friend. That would put it at least into the 1950s. I will keep doing my research and hopefully will be able to narrow it down a little bit more. It does have some detailing in the woodwork that may help. I think I may also have a side view of the chair taken before it was refinished. Thanks again for the info and the websites that you have shared. I appreciate your help!
I like that. I like Veronica's Drawn to Inspire, as well. Very vivid. Good luck :)
Every Day is Sundae!
One thing you might want to do to make it more niche is to allow customization to the plaques and decor. I know if I was looking for something of the sort, that would appeal to me more :) Good luck!
We'll make your kids feel at home.
