This absolutely beautiful picture of yellow daisies, dandelions to make a wish upon, bunches of petite white flowers, peace. Long grass and pretty green weeds, this is my garden of sunshine, my garden of peace. This is heaven.

I was able to transform a sunglasses box that I was just about to toss out into this 3D initial greenery/floral box. This makes a nice decor piece and works great (easier) if your initial is a T or L. For other letters, you can freehand and make your own 3D initial with cardboard.

Four seasons pizza is my favorite pizza. This is an internationally known Italian pizza (Pizza Quattro Stagione). The four toppings represent the four seasons of the year, dividing the pizza into 4 equal quarters. Several fillings in one pizza, in my opinion this is a brilliant idea! But since I like spicy food, so I decided to try making this pizza with hot peppers.

Being frugal isn't complicated. It tends to be just the opposite. Over the years, I've shown appreciation for tips submitted by littergitter, Sandi/Poor But Proud and others, that make things unbelievable simple. Here's one from me.

When you make pulled pork, you usually make more than you can use at the time. If you put it in containers, there is often too much for when you want it. When I make it, I put it on a cookie sheet in clumpsto equal one serving. That way, you can take out just how many you need and keep the rest frozen.

There is a great need for volunteers to help clean up our roads these days. I have found that the winter months are the best time for me as the grass is short and the litter is so accessible and there are no biting insects to bother me.

This is a wildly popular recipe in a neighborhood food group I belong to. I used ground turkey, fresh parsley from my garden instead of the thyme, chopped onions I had frozen previously, and Swiss cheese instead of the pricey Gruyere.

Have you ever looked underneath your vacuum brush? Or notice your vacuum isn't functioning at full capacity/strength. Or perhaps the roller is stuck and not suctioning well. If so, see if there is hair stuck like mine. Easy to fix.

This is a way to organize little bits of leftover embroidery floss. Use the plastic holders that come on packages of bread. Wrap the floss around the center of the plastic holder. Store in a plastic craft container with dividers and organize by color.

These chocolate cowboy hats are a wonderful edible craft. I am making them for my nephew's birthday/Halloween party where he will be dressing up as Woody, the cowboy from Toy Story (his absolute favourite). These only take a few food items and a bit of patience. They would also be awesome for a western movie lover or a baby shower!

You can easily decorate your indoor planters with a Halloween theme using felt or construction paper, scissors, and some tape! Afterwards, save the felt pieces in an envelope or Ziploc bag to reuse next year! Such a simple and easy project, but you can see the difference completely from plain planter to this Halloween themed planter!

I have had this idea in my "to do" file for longer than I care to admit. I have seen these on line. So this week, I decided to just mark it off and share it with all of you. Just 9 components and about an hour of time (not counting paint drying) and it's done. Hope you like it.
