Dragonfly facts

  • Dragonflies are insect who belong to the order Odonata. Experts divide them into three sub-species: the largest true dragonflies called Anisoptera, the smaller damselfly called Zygoptera and Anisozygoptera which seems to be a combination of the first two.
  • They are easily recognisable as having large eyes, small antennae, slim segmented bodies, and 4 thin membranous wing in sets of 2. In dragonflies the rear pair of wings become broader at the base. Damselfly wings are all the same size.
  • Dragonfly eyes are set together close to the top of the head and they can see all around them. Damselflies eyes are situated slightly more to each side of the head.
  • They can vary in size from around 1 inch to 6 inches in some species.
  • So far something like 5680 different species of dragonfly have been recorded world-wide.
  • Dragonfly eyes are multifaceted. This means they can see in every direction - so they sense even tiny movements - all the better for hunting prey.
  • They eat mosquitos and other pests which makes them a great addition to your garden. Some people such as the Burmese, regularly release dragonfly nymphs into local water to keep down the population of mosquitoes.
  • The twin sets of wings gives the dragonflies the ability to fly in all sort of ways. They can hoover, fly fast or slow, even loop the loop. Their flying ability is one of the reasons they are so much fun to watch.

How to create a dragonfly themed kitchen

If you are inspired by dragonflies, think about creating your kitchen decor around that theme. This page brings you suggestions on how to create a dragonfly kitchen using decor and appliances.

Subtle touches work very well. Think about matching some colors and using several well placed dragonfly accents to achieve the best results. Once you have the basics fixed there is no shortage of kitchen and dining accessories available to buy online. I've picked out some of my favorites from dinnerware to curtains to kitchen tiles.

Kitchen decoration

pick your color scheme

Planning a dragonfly inspired kitchen should start with a color scheme. Use these tiles to decide on the overall look. As you can see there are plenty of options to choose from. Notice how well dragonfly colors stand out from a plain background. Take one of the paler, more pastel shades to paint the walls and use a few of these tiles scattered randomly among plain-colored, cream or white tiles on a splash-back for your sink. These stand out better as accents when used sparingly.

Pick out one of the prominent colors of your tiles to match your kitchen accessories, kettle, toaster, coffee maker and so on.

How to Hunt for and Find Antiques – Tips

How to Hunt for and Find Antiques – Tips

The summer is a great time to hunt for and find antiques. It is easy to get around and you can find more garage sales and house sales as well as shop at stores.

Search for the Perfect Antique Collectible for Your Home

When shopping for antiques, it is important to have some type of plan in order to make sure that you find the special items you are seeking and to get a fair price on them.

Antique shopping can be done purely for fun, with no particular treasure in mind. But, if you do have something particular in mind, it pays to do a bit of research prior to hitting the various venues in which you can find antiques.

Finding antiques is half the battle, and a large part of the fun is the experience itself. Here are some helpful tips and advice to make your antique hunting go smoothly and be successful.

Know Where To Look

Each shop has a specialty

To get the best antique finds, it is important to know where to shop. Obvious choices are antique malls and flea markets, or even pawn shops. These places are usually packed with hundreds of interesting and
unique items, many of which may be antiques. The trick when visiting one of these venues is to know how to spot an antique amidst the masses of other items.

The Little Guide to Vintage Shopping: Insider Tips, Helpful Hints, Hip Shops

Other places that can prove to be fruitful when shopping for antiques are garage sales, estate sales, and thrift shops. Most garage sales are listed in the local newspapers, and many include a brief listing of the types of items that will be for sale. In the case of estate sales, these are usually announced to the public through an ad in the local newspaper. Much like with garage sales, there is typically a list of items that will be offered. If the estate in question belonged to an older person, chances are you may find some antique items that have been around through generations of their family. Thrift shops are also terrific places to find that special something. People donate anything and everything to places such as Goodwill, and you could just as easily stumble upon a fabulous bargain such as an antique sewing machine, for example, as you could an everyday used mass market paperback novel. Many times these jewels are hidden among the furniture and home decor section along with more modern items.

Antique Fairs, Antique Shops, and Online Shops

Antique fairs are also very good places to find bargains. If you see an item you are especially interested in, but the seller is asking too much for it, consider paying them a visit later in the day during your antique shopping. Chances are if the seller is about to pack up and it is the last day of the sale, he or she may be willing to make a deal with you on the asking price. Let them know you're willing to take the piece off their hands and save them the trouble of having to pack it up if they only come down a notch on the price.

Small, locally owned antique shops are also fun to shop in, and many times have great bargains. This is also a great way to get to know the shopkeeper and become comfortable asking questions or discussing antiques with them, while at the same time benefiting a local business.

Last but not least, online sites such as Ebay also have a lot of antique pieces to offer. Just make certain to read the information the seller lists very carefully. Inspect all photos thoroughly before bidding or using a "buy it now" option. If you have any questions or concerns at all about the item, by all means, contact the seller before committing to the purchase or bid. Be wary of terms such as "style". For instance, a "Buco style" vintage motorcycle helmet may not be the genuine article, but something similar.

Antique Finds: Just one perfect find can make a room

Know What You are Searching for

Narrow down your search parameters

If searching for a special find, do some research before shopping for antiques. Gaining knowledge about the item of interest will provide you with the information you need to decide if the item is the real deal or a replica, as well as letting you know what condition to expect from the item, and what a fair price range might be. There are several guides that list prices of all types of antiques that can be very useful references. One such guide is Kovel's Buyer's Price Guide.

 Kovels' Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide 2015 Antique Trader Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2015 Warman's Antiques & Collectibles 2015 Price Guide

You may wish to purchase a printed guide to bring with you on your shopping adventures, or you could use an online site and then print the needed information to take with you as you are finding antiques during shopping.

There is also a wealth of information available at your local library, online, or through printed materials, that can guide you in the right direction during your antique shopping. Also, if you happen to be searching for something very specific, for example, antique period furniture, search specifically for that category of antiques. By searching for something very specific, you will acquire more detailed information about the item you desire, as opposed to just doing a broader search about antiques in general.

Inspect the Item Thoroughly

Do your research ahead of time

If you are considering purchasing something very important to you, or that carries a hefty price tag, then make sure you're getting the deal you think you are. This is especially true when purchasing online from Ebay, Craigslist, etc., as mentioned previously.

If you are inspecting an item in person, look for any damage to the item or for any missing pieces or parts. Obviously, in dealing with antiques, the object is not going to be perfect. With some antiques, the normal wear and tear actually add charm and character to the item, and may actually be the "look" you are seeking. However, if you are considering these antique finds based solely on how valuable it is, be extremely careful when inspecting it. Look for any repairs that have been made to the item, as this will decrease its value. Check for any parts that may not be original. Be cautious when finding an item that seems in such great condition for its age that it almost seems to good to be true. The fact of the matter is, you may have just discovered a replica of an antique, not an actual genuine antique. Just be certain you are aware of the fact that an item is simply a replica before purchasing it, as it will be of nowhere near the value of the real thing.

If you are an Amazon prime member, you can take advantage of many instant videos like this one for free where you can learn a lot about antiques and where to find them. American Pickers is a show about two men who make a living searching for vintage and antique items. They travel around the United States in search of the right pick.

Enjoy the Journey

Antique shopping and collecting is a truly enjoyable hobby. It may even be able to bring you some extra income if you know what to look for. Buying something at a true bargain and selling it for much more is quite possible if you know what you are doing. Most of all, just have fun with it and enjoy seeking out these wonderful pieces of the past to make them a part of your present and future.

How to Remove Old Wall Paper

How to Remove Old Wall Paper

Wall paper steamerWallpaper is notoriously difficult to remove if you don't know what you're doing. Simply peeling it off results in half the thickness coming off, and you're left with the pattern being removed, with the backing still firmly attached to the wall. Worse still, is the wallpaper that doesn't even allow that to happen, and you're left picking at the small bits that provide you with slow peeling, and no satisfaction of taking a big chunk off at a time. But thankfully, there are several effective and easier ways how to remove old wallpaper and leave a good flat surface as a result.

Featured: Wagner Power Products 282018 1-Gallon Wallpaper Steamer

The first way is to score the wallpaper with a knife and then soak it with a stripping solution. These special prepared solutions are available for purchase, but be sure to follow its own guidelines for application. Often it can help to add some hot water to the solution to speed up the process and make it more effective. Apply this special solution to the wall and allow it to soak in for several minutes. The scores allow this solution to penetrate behind the wallpaper and this helps loosen the adhesive between paper and the wall.

Next use a wide putty knife to lever up the paper and gently pull it up and everything being equal, you should be able to pull off big pieces of paper at a time.

A second solution is to use a wallpaper steamer. These are great tools that really aid the removal of old wallpaper. The steamer is filled with water which is boiled. The hot vapors travel down a long tube and out to a rectangular plastic cup. Apply this cup to the wall, and hold it against the wall for several seconds. Then move to an adjacent section, and do the same again. Repeat four or five times, and then you should be able remove old wallpaper easily. If any paper is still being resistant, then simply apply the steamer to it and try again.

Steaming is a great technique especially for plastered walls, but on drywall, more care should be taken because it is more suceptible to water damage, as well as the possibility of being gouged by the putty knife. Although any gouges and holes can be filled and sanded after, this will increase your workload. Also, don't forget to be careful as the steam can easily burn you if you're not careful.

Putty knives or paint stripping tools can now be bought in plastic versions instead of metal. These are just as effective, but are also less likely to leave gouges or cuts in the wall, especially drywall board. It's a useful tip to know.

These two methods are the most effective ways on how to remove old wall paper. Once you have mastered the amount of solution or steam necessary for application, you should be able to quickly and easily remove the wall paper. With both methods, the aim is to reduce the effectiveness of the original adhesive used to fix the paper to the wall, and once this has been effected, removal of the paper should be simple.

Abra Cadabra and Pouf!

Abra Cadabra and Pouf!

Abra Cadabra and Pouf! If you haven't been paying attention to the trends in home decor, you may not realize that the pouf is back in town. When I was in high school, lots of people had these along with bean bag chairs. I even had a bean bag chair in my room. Poufs are a softer version of an ottoman, and are great for a bit of added color as well as emergency seating. Kids love them because they have give and are comfortable to sit on for short periods of time. Poufs come in every material and color you can think of. Generally they do not match the furniture, instead they stand out to offer a pop of color. Since they are small, they don't take up much floor space and can be tucked in a closet or under a bench.

As you can see on this page, they come in lots of materials, designs and shapes. All of the poufs pictured on this page are available in at least one other color. You can click through the links to get to the product page for pricing, dimensions and color choices. Don't you think you are missing out? Get a load of these poufs today!

Snow Plow or Electric Snow Shovel

Snow Plow or Electric Snow Shovel

Do You Shovel the Snow in Your Driveway?

Electric Snow ShovelIf you live in a climate that has all four seasons like I do, or even a climate that just has one and that one is winter, you spend a lot of time shoveling snow from your driveway and sidewalks every winter season.  Shoveling snow can be back breaking, exhausting work, and when the snow falls, it can fall for days, sometimes weeks on end, making snow removal very tiresome.

To make the task of shoveling snow easier, you can hire a snow plow service, but that can be expensive.  For moderate levels of snow, a snow blower or electric snow shovel are good options to clear your own driveway of snow, especially if your driveway is not too long.  Or you can buy a snow plow attachment for your own vehicle and clear your own driveway of snow, and even make some money by plowing the snow for your neighbors.

Whatever you plan to do to shovel snow, take care not to over extend yourself shoveling snow.  People die every year because they are not used to the level of exercise that is needed when shoveling a driveway with a manual shovel.

Electric Snow Shovels

Electric snow shovels are a good tool to have on hand for moderate snowfalls.  Electric snow shovels throw the snow, allowing you to clear your walkway, sidewalks, and driveway in a much faster amount of time than a manual shovel.  Electric snow shovels are small, so they are good for smaller spaces, and areas that you need to turn around quickly to clear the snow out.

Electric snow shovels do not take a lot of storage space, not too much more than a traditional snow shovel making them a good tool for cottages, condominiums, and apartments.

Snow Blowers Move More Snow

Snow blowers clear a wider and larger area more quickly of snow than an electric snow shovel.  A snow blower blows the cleared snow through a shoot further than most electric snow shovels, and works better in situations where you have a heavy snowfall.

Snow blowers also handle well in a driveway that already has snow piled up from previous snow plowing or blowing and will continue to clear the area of snow and pile it up on top of the previous piles.

Snow blowers do need more storage space than an electric snow shovel, so they are best if you have a shed or garage to put your show blower in.

Plowing the Snow Yourself

The easiest way to clear your driveway quickly is with a snow plow.  Snow plows work best in areas that get regular heavy snowfalls each winter for an extended period of time.  You can buy a plow attachment for your vehicle, or you can hire a snow plow service.

If you buy a snow plow attachment for your own truck or vehicle, practice driving it in a parking lot where there is a lot of room before you go in and out of narrow driveways.  No need to plow right into your own or neighbor's house.

Especially if you live on a farm, or in a rural area, a snow plow or a combination snow plow and another shovel are your best bet.  Snow plows, snow blowers and snow shovels can be purchased on eBay both new and used from reliable eBay sellers.  You can get parts for your snow plow also.  eBay sellers are rated by how many sales they have had and their feedback, so you can check other people's experience before you buy on eBay.

You may find that a seller is right in your local area, and you can pick up the snow plow right from their store.

As to shoveling your own driveway by hand, I recommend saving the manual shovel for small jobs like clearing your front steps, and leaving the big jobs to your electric snow machines.

Double Gas Ovens Can Be Built In or Freestanding

Although double gas ovens are fairly new to household use, they have been used in commercial settings for years. Double gas ovens can be freestanding units or built in units like regular gas ovens, and if you have a space issue in your kitchen, a built in double gas oven can be a wise choice.

Double gas ovens are available in stainless steel, white or black as standard colors for most companies, and may be ordered in custom colors. Many reputable companies make double gas ovens for the home, including Maytag, Jenn Air, Frigidaire, and GE. Double gas stoves come in varying sizes anywhere from 24 inch to 48 inch, so measure your kitchen space carefully as you consider the best fit.

Baking in a Double Gas Oven

You can purchase a regular double gas oven or a convection double gas oven, both great options for avid bakers. You can preheat one oven while the other is baking, or start your supper cooking, without disturbing your cake that is baking.

You can also do different stages of a recipe in each oven. For instance, bake your biscotti in loaf form in one oven, then have the second oven ready for the biscotti slices to bake at a different temperature. No waiting for the oven to change temperatures.

Cleaning a Double Gas Oven

Cleaning a double gas oven is no more difficult than cleaning a standard oven. Stove tops can be cleaned with the appropriate cleaner for that surface, and many of the ovens are self-cleaning.

In most double gas ovens, the racks on the top and bottom ovens are interchangeable, so you have more flexibility in shelf heights.

Oven Burners on Double Gas Ovens

The number of burners on the stovetop of a double gas oven will vary depending on size of the gas range top and the other features the stove may have like a grill, fry-top or other specialty cooktops. Many of the new double gas ovens have the Precision Cooking System meant to take a lot of the guesswork out of temperatures and cooking.

No matter which oven model or manufacturer you choose, check all of the features and compare carefully for warranties, service, and price.
