Cuckoo Clocks for Under $100

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
When I was growing up, we had a Cuckoo Clock in our dining room. I never realized how expensive a Cuckoo Clock can be until I started looking for one for my own home. I found a bunch on sale for under $100 on Music Box Attic, one of my favorite stores for music box gifts.
The six Cuckoo Clocks pictured here are all on sale for less than $100, but you need to hurry, as there are a number of others that are already sold out on their site! The evolution of the cuckoo in its early development can be traced back to the southwestern corner of Germany, in an area known as the Black Forest, where its rich history reaches as far back as the early 19th century.
Exceptionally complex for its time, not much has changed in the tradition of hand crafting and meticulously assembly of the Cuckoo Clock. Master clockmakers still use refined techniques that are centuries old to produce particularly interesting examples of clocks with moving mechanical features.
A Cuckoo Clock plays out animated scenes that are accompanied by the joyful sounds of a Swiss mechanical music box movement. Today, the allure of the Cuckoo Clock continues to flourish, pushing the limits of creative expression. Joining the ranks of Germany and Switzerland, Italy has modernized the approach through forward-looking and innovative designs, adding to its appeal as a contemporary home decor.
The Cuckoo Clock is now seen as a vibrant and energetic object, perfect for any home or office environment. Both adults and children love the charm of Cuckoo Clocks. Now is the time to add one to your home decor; get one while they're on sale!

Pocket Hose Brass Bullet - Expanding Lightweight Garden Hose #bulbhead

Disclosure: Post contains affiliate links.
In all the places we've lived, we've always had some kind of outdoor garden, whether it's fruits, vegetables, flowers, or a combination of all three. This year, in our new home, we've only had time to plant tomatoes since we have so much interior renovation happening here. Having a garden means we have to have a reliable garden hose and the Pocket Hose Brass Bullet has been our choice for years.
The Pocket Hose Brass Bullet comes in several lengths - 25 feet, 50 feet, 75 feet, and 100 feet. We actually own three of the 75 feet hoses. They are super lightweight and flexible when they are empty. I've found the best way to use it is to turn on the water faucet and let the water fill the Pocket Hose Brass Bullet until it's fully expanded as the water pressure fills the hose, then open the nozzle for a steady stream.
We can connect our Pocket Hoses together if we need to reach the far edges of our property, which is just under an acre in size. We can also connect any kind of regular garden sprayer handle to the Pocket Hoses. When the water spigot is turned off at the faucet, I generally spray out the remaining water in the hose on the plants around the faucet so the hose returns to its compacted, flexible size, making it very easy to wind up onto the hanger.
We've used Pocket Hose Brass Bullet expanding hoses for years. We have not had to replace one yet, because they are very durable. We've added onto our collection as we've moved to bigger properties since we know Pocket Hoses stand the test of time. I highly recommend the Pocket Hose Brass Bullet. I'm so happy I will never have to drag one of those super heavy vinyl hoses around again!

Decorative Ceiling Tiles Transformed Our Guest Room #renovation #restoration #diy

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
When we first bought our little 1888 Kansas farmhouse back in October of 2017, the guest room decor was abysmal. It featured decades-old green carpeting, wallpaper with purple flowers and green leaves, plus a dropped ceiling complete with metal tracks. The estimate on that decor update was probably late 60's or early 70's. We replaced the carpet before we even moved in, stripped and repaired the walls over several weeks, painted everything white, then decided it was time to remove the dropped ceiling. We were terrified what we might find when we took down the dropped ceiling tiles.
This room is part of the original two room house built in 1888. The ceiling had, at some point, been covered with a red/pink tweed-looking wallpaper. Rather than remove the wallpaper, the previous owner had installed a dropped ceiling. We reinstalled the ceiling fan against the ceiling, removing the wood block that had allowed the fan to lay flush against the dropped ceiling. I was delighted with the extra six inches the room gained! The ceiling was a bit wonky, but it is 130 years old, and I had seen an ad for decorative ceiling tiles that glue right up to the ceiling. We decided this was the best course of action so that we could simply cover up the existing ceiling while keeping the height of the room. We even hung the new curtains much higher to emphasize the 9 foot walls.
Since nothing in a century-old house is level or square, we installed one-by-two planks for a simple wood trim before we started gluing up the decorative ceiling tiles. The busy Victorian pattern is perfect for an old ceiling, as it helps to hide some of the slight dips in the old wood ceiling. We started in the center of the room, cutting a circle in the first ceiling tile so that it slid up perfectly over the fan base. Each one of these ceiling tiles is made of styrofoam so they are easy to handle, easy to cut, and each one glues easily to the ceiling. The ceiling was actually finished in just a couple of hours! We also caulked around the edge of the room to finish it out. I absolutely love how it looks like a fancy plaster ceiling and is very true to the original period that the house was built. In fact, we love the look so much that we are going to install the exact same decorative ceiling tiles in the master bedroom. I am beyond thrilled with how our guest room is coming together!

Cedar Garden Markers for your Homegrown Veggies

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Growing your own vegetables is such a rewarding activity and you can involve your entire family in planning, planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting. Kids will love going out to the backyard to gather everything needed for a salad lunch or a vegetable soup for dinner. You can start small with something that grows easily, like tomatoes or peppers, or clear a whole patch and plant a wide variety that will feed your family, plus leave enough left over to sell at the farmer's market. What a wonderful way to ensure your family is eating organic foods!
You can plant from seeds or you can plant from starts, which are small plants offered at many garden centers and sometimes even the grocery store. Be sure to mark your crops as you plant them so you don't forget which ones are which. I absolutely adore these cedar Garden Markers from Mason Jars Makerplace! Each one is hand made of aromatic red cedar, and made right here in the United States. Each one measures about 7 inches in length and features the vegetable names in a playful cursive font. You can either leave these garden markers unfinished so they age to a silvery gray, or you can stain and seal them, or even paint them a bright summer color before you add them to your garden.
Cedar Garden Markers are offered for eighteen different popular vegetables, including beans, lettuce, peas, carrots, squash, and many more! You won't ever have to guess again where you planted the onions and potatoes. They are so simple to install - just push the stick end into the ground or into the soil in your container garden. Red cedar naturally protects itself from decay and rot, and since cedar is naturally resistant to bacteria and fungus, it's an excellent choice to add to your garden. At just $4.75 each, these cedar garden markers are a steal!
