I have read some tutorials lately to help me learn how to take better photos of my Christmas tree – they help with photos of other lights, too – so I decided to share some of my successes with you.
Note: I have had my DSLR for about a year and a half and am by [...]
It’s been several years since we’ve lived in a house with a mantel and I’ve never really done a theme or seasonal decoration for the mantels we have had in the past.

However, this is not a normal take 4 months to move kind of PCS (permanent change of station). This is one of those quick [...]
Last year, after many years of use and moving house my 3qt stainless saucepan/pot somehow managed to get warped on the bottom. We tried to fix it. I heated it with water in it and then Michael hammered away at the bottom of it, trying to smooth out the warping, but to no avail. Normally, [...]
