Shatterproof Glass Water Bottle
Glasstic Bottle Co. sent me this very cool water bottle. Here is the thing, I hate drinking out of plastic. I don’t use plastic cups at home because I feel they can retain a smell and hold on to sticky drinks. So the thought of being able to go to the office and drink out of a glass is exactly how I want to live. It’s got an outter lining of plastic that keeps everything from getting broken. The top has an extra latch to make sure you are not leaking. It’s easy to clean in the dishwasher and no NASTY STRAW!! Read more
My friend recently moved to Boca Raton with her husband and 4 kids. His job was the cause of the move and of course her two teens were fighting it the whole time. She said it had taken them a long time to get used to the new area. Not knowing where anything was had disoriented them. When it was time to take care of their medical and dental issues, it felt like starting all over again. She said she was very grateful to have finally found Dr. Tendler but she wished she had been more organized and found him sooner.
So here are her tips for finding great Orthodontists like Dr. Tendler. Read more
Hanging a Wall Tapestry
Depending on your own preferences and circumstances, how you hang your wall tapestry can be just as telling about your personality as the wall tapestry itself. There are three basic ways to hang a wall tapestry, but at the same time, there are no hard and fast rules. Be creative!
- · Tapestry Rods: Probably the most common way to hang a wall tapestry is to use a decorative rod. Often, sites throw in a free rod when the wall tapestry is purchased. Depending on the tapestry, it may have a “sleeve” sewn into it that the rod slips through. If your tapestry has this, it provides one more option for you, and it useful if you do not want the rod to show so much. Some tapestries come with tab tops sewn on them, and the rod can be slipped through these. Other people prefer to remove these “tabs” and use decorative clips to suspend the wall tapestry from the rod.
- · Cardboard or light wood frames: If you prefer, you can wrap a tapestry around a piece of sturdy cardboard or lightweight wood and use a strong adhesive to secure the ends to the back. The only drawback with this is that some of the tapestry is “lost” as it folds over the back. However, you need less wall space than with a rod.
- · Framing: If your tapestry is small, you have the option to frame it. You will not need a matte, and non-glare Plexiglas is a good option so the colors of the wall tapestry can be seen well at all times. The advantage to this is that the frame can be chosen in any style you like. You can use the frame to “blend” design features as the eye moves from one part of your décor to another.
