Final October, Better Houses and Gardens editor Amy Panos asked me to create a fall entertaining characteristic for his or her 2012 October issue magazine difficulty.

Design Tip: Backyard accents needn’t break the financial institution. Add curiosity to the garden with discovered or repurposed items like an previous wagon filled with potted plants, a leaky watering can transformed right into a planter, or an previous gate or section of fence used as a trellis. Use your imagination and don’t be afraid to include a humorousness. Your garden should mirror your character.

Of course when you recycle outdated glass there may be events when you might want to be ambitious and engrave a bit of Artwork Décor on some of your projects. For those who’ve never done this earlier than reasonably than pay out for costly tools that you could be never use again one option is to purchase a Dremel and an engraving equipment, and experiment on just a few items of scrap glass.

Thanks, Julie! I usually have a pot or two of leaf lettuce going, but never thought to put beets in a container. Talking of beets, I simply picked some large ones this morning – and I am talking really, actually large. I believe my next project will have to be determining learn how to make and might pickled beets. Thanks once more for the comment, votes and share.

I am also trying into the identical state of affairs. I am 50, single, modest income and the way issues are, I will work till I drop useless…. The one solution to ‘retire’ is to have a self sustainable life. I’ve a 5 yr plan to study, develop a design, lower your expenses and so on. Ideally I’d know different people with the same interest and we’d buy land together and construct our homes. A mini group. I do not need to depart utterly on my own.
