Next Year’s Gift Wrap

Save the Wreath
Most natural Christmas wreaths get tossed after one year. I wanted to save mine for next year. So I removed the bow and sprayed it with clear lacquer.

I think I’ve got a wreath that’ll be good next year! Melissa
Glass Stove Top Cleaner
If you run out of stove top cleaner or just like to make your own, try this trick. Sprinkle baking soda over the glass. Use a kitchen sponge to rub it over the cook top. Take a clean wet paper towel to wipe off the remaining baking soda. A final pass with a dry paper towel will have it nice and bright!
