BEST HOUSEHOLD TIP EVER....................

This sure sold me! I am going to the Dollar Store Today and get a Dozen.......

Good Housekeeping tip from Maxine....

Always keep several greeting cards up on the mantle.........
So if unexpected guests arrive......
They will think you have been sick and unable to clean.


and on another note....
We have Foodie Friday.....Met Monday and Tablescape Thursdays
but we don't have a day when we get to showcase our collections.....
If your a cook or a decorator....or maybe just a lovable "Pack Rat" we all have
stuff and it's time to show it off!!
My good friend Ellen at http://www.nouveaustitch.wordpress.com/
Is gearing up to have Mr. Linky show off your collections....
With the clever name of
"PUBLIC DISPLAY OF COLLECTION"
you will be able to post your link on her blog for all the blogworld to see your
Treasures.....
So go over today and see what Ellen collects....it's really cool and then stay tuned for the date she will be putting Mr. Linky to work....
Go.....what are you waiting for......Go Go.

Are you talking to me? Do you think I have collections? Just a few hundred, I guess. I need to go buy some 'get well cards', I guess. I have been so lazy lately - haven't done a thing around here. Have a great weekend. Sally

LOVED the Maxine joke...I need to get some get well cards - lol!!

I do have collections...right now I have no idea where they might be located. Everyday, at least 5 times a day, one of us says, "Do you know where (fill in the blank) is?"
Hugs,
Penny

Oh wow -- LOVE the get well card idea. Now that is brilliant. I remember back when my girls were little and the house got out of control and two people from our church showed up unexpectedly --- I was so embarrassed that i actually LIED to my CHURCH members and told them I had been sick! I cringe when I remember that!

Ah, confession is good for the soul.

Love the idea of the PDC meme. Good idea!

And I'll think of you as I shop Jersey tomorrow!

Hi Sue,
That dollar tree idea is actually pretty clever! I like the linky party idea although sometimes I feel like I will never be able to keep track of all the great blog parties! Have a great week-end at your house too! Cindy

I've been so busy that the bunnies are now RABBITS!!!!

But fall is always that way-- but it's a great idea!

We have way too many collections! But finding bits and pieces of a collection are fun!

Kathleen Grace said...

Lol, what a great idea! But now I need to get a mantle to put them on.

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Sue, that gift card idea is funny! I like the collection party - that sounds like fun! Linda

Cathy said...

Hahaha...great idea! Sharing our collections with others sounds like a grand idea. I'm on my way over to check it out.

Kathleen said...

I have used that trick..:)
I don't collect anything per se..wait, crap..I have a lot of it says DH! dishes, etc..
But none I hang on the wall ..

Joyce said...

Collections? Hum, I have a collection of nuts in my family that I could write about with lots of photos:) The card idea is so funny:) I have a serious collection of dust bunnies floating around my home too:)

What a GREAT!!! tip. I had back surgery in May and I still have cards on the mantle. I'll have to save them, so after the Christmas cards come down I will put the get well cards back up. LOL
I love to cook, but hate to dust.
I have become a follower of your blog, I love to share recipes and ideas. Come by and visit, maybe you can do the same.

That's funny! I should try that this week!

That's too bad that does dishes are packed away! They would be so perfect for Thanksgiving dinner. Maybe if you asked nicely?

Maxine has a good idea there!

Mimi Sue said...

Gotta love Maxine. She says what I think but don't have enough guts to say! I'm definitely getting some get well cards. Brilliant idea. Mimi

Kathleen said...

Love Maxine. Get tip btw!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I love the card idea! Hysterical. But smart!

Well you know I collect Ladies Liberty. And apparently now I collect fabric...lots of it! That needs to be turned into stuff pronto so we can get the guest bed back (where it's being "displayed" if you will).
