I think i just figured out part of what I want to do with my seashells! I believe my next bathroom is going to take on some form of Mom's and get turned into an island oasis--bath/shower time is relaxation time, why not make it themed after my favorite place: the beach! (: by rebecca2

The Look
As my life (and tastes!) change I've decided a close clean out is in order. There are some awesome things I just haven't worn in years and with this pregnancy and another year of nursing ahead I need to just clean up and pass along what doesn't work or isn't sentimental/vintage. Sooo...... I've decided to sell online and am looking for recommendations on the platform. I'd like to control the visual look and am thinking postmark could be a good place to start. I already have my blog photography which is why I'm leaning this direction over sending it all out and relying on a third party to take pictures. I also know some instagrammers do well with "shop" accounts they promote here. WHAT DO YOU THINK!!?!? Where have you had the best success?? (The local resale boutiques don't recognize a lot of brands and wanna pay pennies thus the solution of going online) by regina

This is by far my favorite time of the year. The leaves are just starting to fall up here. Just a wee teeny tiny bit. No color yet just loose ones that the trees need to shed. The nights are getting cooler and the sweaters are making a reappearance. At least that is the way it is in this neck of the woods. by becky

Why I Can Never Complain About Doing Dishes or Cooking Again Of all the new and different things I experienced in South Africa, I think the thing that will stick with me for a very long time was seeing first hand just how significant the hunger problems there are in the world. And I know they are not isolated to communities in Africa — or even in third world countries. Right here in America, there are children and adults who go hungry. There are children who go home from school and have no food at all over the weekends. by aileen

Today we are going to take a closer look at the 1910 census record and I'll share with you some of my favorite bits. But here is the important thing I want you to remember: Look beyond the names and dates of birth. What are all of those other columns of information telling you? The PROCESS of analyzing the 1910 census is the same for censuses of other years. Now, let's get into my favorite parts of the 1910 census year! by claudine

Restoring teak furniture  What You Need:  Rubber Gloves  Two Brushes  Medium Grit Sandpaper  Soft Bristle Brush or Steel Wool  TSP (a cleaning agent) and a bucket of warm water  Teak Oil  Polyurethane    Instructions:    Clean: If you are dealing with teak turned old and grey you will be surprised at how this step alone will begin to transform your piece. Using a soft bristle brush or steel wool, thoroughly scrub the wood with warm water and a detergent like TSP. This gets rid of the oxidation and dirt that has built up and given the wood its silvery patina. Depending on the state of your teak this step can take quite a while and require some serious arm work. If you're starting out with some really weathered teak you will begin to see some serious transformation here as the wood's true color starts to make its appearance.    Sand: You'll need to get some medium grit sanding blocks and sand your teak by hand to even out the top layer of wood. Try to get the color as even as possible.    Dry Time: If you're like me this is the hardest part. I am so impatient that once I start I just want to keep going till it's finished, but I assure you this step is really important. Your newly cleaned teak needs a few days of drying time so that the oil you will put on in the next step can fully saturate deep into the wood's pores.    Oil: These next two steps are very toxic so make sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start applying these chemicals. Now that the wood is good and dry you are ready to apply the oil. Go get some good quality Teak Oil, a brush and some rubber gloves and lightly brush the oil over all surfaces three times each. You must do this a minimum of four rounds with an hour in-between allowing time for the oil to fully saturate the wood. Apply as many times as needed until you get the desired color of wood.    Seal: At this time your teak should be looking as good as new. After all the work you've put in you may be tempted to call it quits, but you still have one more step. You have only restored the teak's natural oil at this point but haven't protected it from further damage. That's where the polyurethane comes in to seal in the oil and protect the surface. Paint on a few coats and let dry for a few days, and you'll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your newly restored Teak furniture.    Store: Going from Los Angeles to Seattle I completely failed to do this step last winter so I thought I would throw it in. I used to live outside and never had to give a second thought to my outdoor furniture so upon moving to this new climate I was a bit stubborn and naive about the correct upkeep. So if you don't live somewhere that has year round summer then you should either cover your furniture or bring it into an unheated garage. I say unheated because temperature changes and excess heat can crack your wood.      MORE TEAK RESTORATION ON APARTMENT THERAPY:  How To Care For Teak Furniture by babyblu3
