Redecorate - Spring is just Around the Corner!

In just a few more weeks Spring will be upon us (thank goodness)! This time of year brings about a renewed freshness and a feeling of wanting to spruce up our homes and gardens. I know my home needs a TOTAL remodeling job - I haven't changed a thing in probably 5 or 6 years now (too busy building my fat butt in this computer chair). I guess I really should take time to refresh and change things up a little. Sometimes it's good to take some of your own advice!

I will try to have a new recipe posted in a day or two - I've got hundreds if I can find them in the clutter around here;)

Everyone have a wonderful week!

Garden Decor - Lots of New Stuff!

I have recently added several new items to our garden decor line! Garden statues and fountains, wooden ducks - all kinds of really neat things! In a few more weeks it will be time to spruce up the lawn and get ready for spring - the most gorgeous and refreshing time of the year.

Home Decorating - Tips for hanging pictures

Hanging pictures is certainly not most peoples favorite thing to do. Finding a stud may be hard, or just hanging the picture straight is challenging for many people!
It is well worth your time and effort to use a level when hanging your pictures.

Did you know that pictures weighing less than ten pounds can be hung on a straight pin? I've done it many times and it works! Saves your walls from the big nail holes as well.

When hanging pictures, the perfect height is about eye level. If hanging them over your sofa, a little lower is okay. Generally, though, eye level is good. Also, when putting together a grouping, always use an odd number of pieces. For example, a large picture with two accents on each side (5 total pieces) looks wonderful. An even number of items just doesn't work.

Never hang pictures where sunlight or light sources will shine directly on them. This can cause yellowing and fading of your pictures. Keep them away from light sources.

Well, that's it for the picture tips - hope you found something you can use!

Roasted Barbecue Potatoes - Mmmm!

This is a recipe I just tried out about a week ago, and it is absolutely heavenly - better than I thought it would be before I made it! Try it out - you'll make it one of your regular weekly side dishes.

4 medium red potatoes, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
1 tablespoon vegetable oil or olive oil
2 tablespoons McCormick Grill Mates Barbecue Seasoning, or other brand
1 large onion, peeled, cut into thin wedges

Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with oil. Add barbecue seasoning and toss again to coat. Place potatoes on cookie sheet and spread onion wedges on top. Bake in oven for 30-40 minutes.

This dish is great with baked or bbq chicken, hamburger steaks, pork chops or just about anything else you can think of!
