The Glory Lily is the national flower of Zimbabwe. It grows mostly in jungles. The flower is extremely colourful and beautiful, but never grown in home gardens. Not in my country anyway. If eaten, it is as deadly as cyanide. There are many true stories about people committing suicide by eating the yam of this plant and I myself have come across a young boy who had a fight with his parents and died by eating it. It happened many years ago.
I wanted something to quill but not anything that would take long. I have this little crimpler that I made with my sons LEGO car wheels and was just crimpling some left over strips when I got this idea of the flower. The hardest part of my quilling is the idea of what to quill. Since I don't like doing what someone has already done, I need something different always. Creating it did not take long. The strips of paper is 1/8 inch. I needed just three colours. Red, yellow and green. It isn't a difficult flower at all. by claudia

Homemade Peppermint Foot Cream I originally found this recipe at Frugally Sustainable and I fell in love with it the first time I used it. It wasn't just the great peppermint smell, but it was what it did to my feet. For the last several years my feet have taken quite a beating. They were rough, dry, cracking, and had some kind of fungus that would not go away no matter what I put on them! This cream is AmAzInG!! I now have my soft, non fungus feet back! Don't worry, I won't by mariam

I have a theory on why rich people are thin, it's not only that they can afford better, healthier food - but that their homes are so large they get a lot of exercise just going to the bathroom. For instance this house is 40, 50 yards from living room to bath....in my house it is 8 or 9 steps....no wonder I'm fat... :-) by harriett

Beautiful Pallet Wine Storage Rack #palletwinerack #recyclingwoodpallets This is one of my first projects. I have been looking for ideas for a present for my dads birthday that he can actually use and not put in a drawer and forget about. I came across a picture on Pinterest showing many different types of wine storage racks made from pallets. I came across a picture I liked then clicked on it, but it had no instructions on how to make it. So going by the picture I started to make it. by kelli

Deep greenish-blue (or greenish-turquoise) is a unique color that doesn't fit with any of the better known sea glass colors. It is "too green" (and too dark) to be turquoise, but it's not a rare form of green, either. The few pieces I have found have been very very small. by laurel

How to restore an old good brush? I found out that by not only adding soap but really hot water the oil sticked to the brushes it will finally come off! Leave the brushes in hot water for couple of minutes until the brush hairs are flexible. Now, I have brushes in great condition that I have used for more than 10 years just like new!  The best of all I didn't use turpentine or thinner at all that it is toxic. by ivy

In all my years of finger knitting, i have always knitted using 4 fingers. While teaching my kids to finger knit it occurred to me that you do not have you use all 4 fingers. You can use less to create a thinner rope. Another thing i just figured out is that you can take that (two finger) thin rope of finger knitting and finger knit that. Who knew, right?!? by jean

Don't let it happen || I don't know that it's Team Obama's "strategy for maintaining permanent power," but it is very likely their strategy for the crippling slow death of America as we have known it.  It isn't the same country it was when Obama took office; the milieu of the nation has changed, and he has succeeded in undoing a great deal of the progress in race relations that was built over decades in just a few years.

THIS IS WORTH KEEPING AND READING FREQUENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Written by a 90 Year Old..... This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio . "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words :'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life.. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life.. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift." by eluthrea

It has no stem. It has no root. (Cuz that wouldn't look good.) I've got daisy toe. My right foot loves my left foot so. Muwha. by florence

But im not going to put a buncha effort into a friendship and get my hopes up to have them just walk away like everyone else in my life. It's not worth it. Not when I'm the only one who ever makes an effort. So ill just remain lonely and friendless. by luvmypets
