Don’t throw away onion skins, wash them, place in a baggie or container, and freeze. Onion skins are terrific additions to chicken broth stock. The skins add a lovely sparkle of yellow color. Onion skins can also be used to create natural dyes.
Drilling a hole in the ceiling or wall?
Drill through a clear plastic glass first. After drilling do not remove glass from drill bit.
Place plastic glass flat against wall or ceiling, drill your hole with the glass held in place.
My husband looked puzzled when I asked for a photograph of him drilling. “Why?” he asked.
“To use as a tip on my blog,” I answered.
“Everyone knows this tip already.” he teased.
For those of you like me who didn’t know, and never would have thought of this…WOW! What a great way to keep dust and debris off your furniture and floor.
The final tip…at your next gathering or party capture a little bit of whimsy. Welcome your guests with a greeting written in chalk on your sidewalk or drive. Guaranteed to start a party off with everyone smiling. 🙂
