That's right. These leaf drawings only cost $4.
I used watercolor paper and drew four separate images of leaves and placed them on 11"x14" sheets of black cardboard. The frames cost a buck a piece at the Dollar Store. Voila! Instant glam for the walls.

I got a great deal on a white kitchen cabinet at Home Depot about a year ago. And I had a plan for the pre-made cabinet.
First, I bought bracket supports for each of the four corners and attached them to the bottom of the cabinet. Next, I purchased four wood turned legs with a screw mounted at the top to adhere to the brackets. Then I sanded and painted each leg three times before attaching them to the bracket supports.
That's it. So easy and it adds lots of extra storage space with shelves inside each door unit.

This would be a cute idea for couples getting married - one handprint from each person that together form the heart motif.

Drain contents of two 14 oz. cans of plain artichokes, one 16 oz. can of sliced white potatoes, two small cans of black olives and two small cans of water chestnuts. Roast one large red pepper and slice after cooled into 1/4 inch pieces. Cut artichokes into 1/2 inch pieces. Combine ingredients in a large bowl along with 1/2 cup of Romano cheese, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic-chopped fine, and 1 cup of bread crumbs. Mix well and empty into an ungreased 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. The recipe recommended letting the mixture sit a day refrigerated before baking and that's just what I did. Super yummy!
