TIP #2 - You probably already know this or do it but I was cooking up a storm yesterday and one of the things I was making was a sauce for Lasagna that I was going to cook today. I always make spaghetti sauce and chili the day before I'm going to use it. There is something about refrigerating tomato based sauces overnight that truly brings the flavors out and melds the spices you've added. In fact, chili and spaghetti sauce could be made way ahead and frozen. It only gets better with refrigeration!
Below is when I took it out of the frig today to start making my lasagna.
I do fertilize occasionally but I have gone as much as 3 weeks without watering when I had my eye surgeries and couldn't see for awhile. All my other plants "failed" but this one lived through it all!
It has grown up the hanger and I had to trim it back as it swooped over to the drapes and started growing on the drapery rod! It's unbelievable! It also flowers and is easy to root in water! In my house this is a "miracle" plant!
Here's my feed sack curtain. Since it's a "sack" it's double thick and therefore definitely not see through which is good since it's in my bathroom.
This is a tablecloth I got at a garage sale..........
These may not be your idea of great decorating if you have a fancier house than mine but for me it's fine. I'm more practical than fancy but I love a "cozy" and "homey" atmosphere so it works for me. I'm sure you could come up with even more but I hope this helps you in some small way. Have a great evening!
