Yep - we still iron at our house - and always have. In this video, I show how my dear Mom taught me this 'art'. From our days at college and all through the years that my hubby worked, he went dressed well in an ironed shirt. Only during some of my most crazy shop ownership years did he take his shirts to be 'laundered' and heavily starched. As IRead More

I find when the season hints of change, that I need to RE-LOOK at everything in terms of My Lifestyle and NEEDS. What I have worn - or NOT worn, and WHY My favorites - and WHY BUT, this video alsoRead More
For the Wednesday Wardrobe Hints, I'll often be directing you to the wisdom of Nancy Nix-Rice. She and I are definitely 'on the same page' when it comes to colors and wardrobing in general.

SIMPLE. QUICK. EASY. GREAT RESULTS. When you take a garment off a hanger to wear, move the hanger to the basket on the floor. I've been doing this for several years now and especially since we moved and I 're-organized'. When the basket is full, I just grab the hangers and walk them to the laundry room.
