Tabletop Trees Make Great Decor

Image
People in many apartments and smaller homes have seen the value of using tabletop trees. Although most commonly associated with Christmas decor, these tabletop trees are also a great choice for other holidays and occasions. If you've never used one of these smaller trees, you'll have some healthy inspiration from these ideas.

Many people enjoy decorating for Valentine's Day. Balsam Hill reviews are quite helpful for helping determine how suitable tabletop trees are for decorating uses. It's easy to decorate a small tree for Valentine's Day using some combination of white and either pink or red. Use smart hearts that you've crafted yourself, and consider some tinsel for extra flair.

An old custom that many German and German-American families follow is hanging decorative eggs on their bushes and tree branches at Easter. For families that prefer to decorate indoors for this occasion, tabletop trees are a good solution. If you wish, you might prefer to use some …

Did Some Organizing at Home

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! No time to go  out during Valentine's Day.  We would love to go out  for lunch or dinner but  I realized that I cooked a lot of foods the other day  so we decided to stay at home.  I don't really want to throw foods away especially when they are  still eatable.  I know millions of people don't have food to eat and I just don't want to waste food. Thanks goodness, most of it   are already eaten today. Whose on diet anyway? lolz! So tomorrow, will be the extension of Valentine's day, to go and dine-out somewhere out there.

Besides, I don't really feel good today so it was a good choice to stay at home. I ended up doing some  clean-up and organizing at home.  I also did three laundries and I am glad that the dirty  clothes and bedding were  finally washed.

Hopefully, this spring time, I can do some more organizing at home. I  need some shelves for my books and other stuffs  in my computer or little  working room. I also sorted-o…

The Essentials of Rug Cleaning

Area rugs have a lot of uses. They can fill an empty space, define an area, protects large carpets and much more. They often receive more traffic than other carpets and may receive more spills. Area rugs come in all shapes and sizes and are made from many different fabrics. When you look for a rug cleaner, make sure they know how to clean each kind of rug.

Wool Rugs
Persian and oriental rugs are special wool rugs that have brilliant designs woven into the rug. They brighten any corner and add elegance to the room. Wool area rugs are also available with modern designs and colors. All wool rugs need special handling and should be cleaned by a professional. Persian and oriental rugs need to be vacuumed first on both sides with a special tool so as not to create fuzz. No harsh alkaline cleaner should be used because it can damage wool. Professionals use environmentally-friendly products that don’t leave any toxic fumes to pollute your indoor air quality.

Thankful for a Quite Good Start of February

It is time to say goodbye to the first month of the  year! It is over now and I am gladly welcoming February. I hope January was a wonderful month to all of you. I know in some parts of the world especially those who are affected and are victims of  wars and hunger  specifically  in some parts of Africa and Asia,  life is really hard.

I was watching this German TV Program called Weltspiegel tonight. It is a very interesting program hearing some news from some parts of the globe. They featured tonight some scenes from Africa and the refugees from Syria who  are trying to escape from the conflicts that are going on in the  country.  Their lives are really very difficult. Pity to see  especially the young children who are experiencing such hardships. I hope one day, this world will be a better place to live-in and let's slowly work for it.


So far, the  so-called "love month" is starting good for me. I had a chat from my family back home and in the United States. Thanks to o…
