It depends on who you ask. For me, it's become a holiday that I do not get excited about anymore and I wish I did. I have a fake tree(thanks to my husband)that I detest and refuse to put up this year. My house is a complete wreck and I do not see any hope of getting it finished by Christmas with the "remodeling" projects I have going on, thus....I need help. Help with getting the spirit back within me. Any suggestions my blogger friends?

A lot of people say the wild violet is a weed. How dare they? They are my favorite flower of all time, however I love all flowers, greenery of all kind, etc. Nature's Garden. Right now, if you look closely, you will find a stray beauty blooming here and there...they are spreading their seeds again. I ordered some pink wild violets but didn't have any luck with them. I do have several different kinds that bloom each year. I not only make pictures of them, I put them in salads, I have made violet sherbet. They are an herb and actually good for you. So, please don't mow those beauties down....let them bloom and prosper...

TO ALL MY BLOGGER FRIENDS...HAVE
A WONDERFUL DAY
Here in the South we say things like: "sorta and reckon".....I didn't/don't realize I have the Southern Slang until I recently visited my Coastie who is stationed up North. I had quite a few fun conversations...haaaaa
Still working on my flooring, while refinishing tables, etc. to go in the room. The china cabinet is on standby until I'm certain what I want to do for sure.
It's getting down to freezing by tomorrow night and I still have about 8 or so big plants I have to bring in off my covered deck. Now, where I'm going to put them still remains to be seen. Last year, the two places I had them, I also had grow lights over them, but they did not like those lights at all. So...we shall have to see. I hate it when they drop their leaves from the stress of bringing them inside.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day...hugs, noah

So far the flooring is doing pretty good. My idea is to do everything I can to get the smell out of the particleboard, then I will stain it a dark stain. Then apply a coat of lacquer. When it is dry I plan to paint a Compass Rose of some design in the middle of the floor. I am still deciding on which design to use. Probably paint stripes around the edge of the floor. I plan to distress the "rose",then another coat of lacquer; perhaps several. I will give it my own technique of course and make it a bit different...maybe colour perhaps? What do ya'll think of this design?

I'm ashamed to ask, but does anyone know a good solution to getting cat urine out of particle board? I found one solution of 1 qt. of 3% hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 teasp. dish liquid
We "tried", (with three successful litters, but it was just too much) breeding Persian cats and thus one ruined carpet. The carpet is out but the boarding still stinks..before I put anything down I have to get this smell out. Any ideas?

Hello all, beautiful here in the south with chill in the air. I must move my plants inside today. It's already gotten below 32* 3 nights now, but thankfully my plants are on a covered deck. The problem is: Where will I put them all? Working on the old china cabinet here and there, doing my usual household duties.....hope you all have a wonderful day.
