Little ideas, tips and hints that I might not think of but will save for when I need them.

! "When my sister was married, I took the half-dead roses from her bouquet. At home, I rooted them by cutting off the heads, making a clean cut on the bottoms, dipping the fresh-cut bottoms in rooting hormone, and putting them in a pot that was half Perlite and half soil. I kept these moist until rooted & planted them in a shaded location in my garden. This year, on her anniversary, she received a gift that can't be replaced: 12 rose bushes from her wedding bouquet."

House smelling weird? Put two caps full of vanilla extract in a coffee cup, then place it in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour. Within twenty minutes the whole house smells like Heaven. It's actually a common realtor trick.
