How To Assemble This Gorgeous Plant Stand

AISHN 3-Tiered Scroll Classic Plant Stand Decorative Metal Garden Patio Standing Plant Flower Pot Rack Display Shelf Holds 3-Flower Pot with Modern "S" Design (Black)

This is a beautiful plant stand. It arrived well packaged with all parts wrapped in bubble wrap. There were no enclosed instructions, but I referred to the picture of the product on Amazon's page.

There were six pieces:
2 sides
3 plant bases
1 bottom brace





Each piece had the bolts attached, so it was a matter of removing the bolts from each piece then attaching it. I worked from the bottom up. First I attached the cross piece shown at the bottom. There are predrilled holes on each side. Just insert the cross brace into the predrilled holes, then put the bolts back on.

Each of the plant holders came with 4 bolts each, just unscrew the 4 attached bolts, insert into the 4 predrilled holes, tighten, up the four bolts, then duplicate for the remaining two plant holders.



It is beautiful! Now add 3 plants and your world is gorgeous. I am using mine on an outside patio with blooming flowers. Pictures coming soon!

Love This Big Bowl for my Wheel Estate

Squish Mixing Bowl, 5-Quart, Green
Squish Mixing Bowl, 5-Quart, Green

I bought the 5 quart Squish mixing bowl for whipping up chilled salads like bean salad or potato salad or coleslaw. It's so pretty you can serve right out of it too. Even if making a smaller batch, the big bowl prevents stuff from slopping out of the bowl until it gets transferred.

Sometimes I make a corn casserole by mixing all the ingredients in the Squish bowl, then pouring with the ultra convenient lip to my crockpot for baking. The bowl is so big we sometimes use it as a dishpan in the motorhome sink.

It is beautiful!  I love the hole for hanging it up flat, it's always in my RV galley hanging up on the wall, ready for use.

I enjoy the oval design, the nice grip and pour spout. The color is rather cheerful. When I first brought it out for a meal with friends, using it to hold a big salad with chicken, grapes, pineapple, celery and mango mayo, everyone immediately commented on it.

You can easily wash it by hand, then pop it back down for air drying without it hogging up the tiny dish drain rack I use.

It's perfect for camping, for RV's, for tiny home living, any kitchen that needs a cheerful bowl for the the thrill of cooking, mixing, making up foodstuff.

Love This Little Bowl for my Wheel Estate

Squish Mixing Bowl, 1.5-Quart


I bought the 5 quart Squish mixing bowl first. It's wonderful but was too big for just tossing a side salad together for 2-3 people or mixing up a small batch of something.  So I added this 1.5 quart Squish bowl.

It is beautiful!  I love the hole for hanging it up flat, it's always in my RV galley hanging up ready for use.

Budget Endoscope with Great Clarity

Distianert EB-0032, 2.0 Megapixel 2-in-1 Endoscope HD Borescope Type-C Micro USB Inspection Camera Water-Proof Borescope Android Smartphone with OTG Windows PC/Laptop/Mac Snake Camera with 4m Flat


Plugged into laptop with Windows 7. Device drivers were installed automatically.

Package came in little box with instruction booklet, a mini-CD, a velvet pouch, an accessory ziplock baggy, and the endoscope camera with a piece of Velcro to hold it coiled.

Light came on at end of cord.

Plugged in CD, copied all files to  my hard drive into their own folder I labeled Endoscope Distianert. This is important, as otherwise you can only use the camera with the CD plugged in. Now that I copied the files, I don't need the CD inserted each time to run the programs.

My Endoscope distainert folder now had 2 more folders, OTG Phone and PC plus a PDF file USB Endoscope User Manual.

I ran the Smart Camera.exe file under the PC folder. I am using a  Windows 7 laptop. I took a few pictures and made videos. The program automatically stored the videos and pics in the PC  folder. The program set up 2 more folders,one for pictures and one for videos. This is where I can find my save work.

I am uploading two pics made with this camera and also one video showing an inspection of my keyboard. The clarity of the camera is so good you can see the dust bunnies I never knew were living there.

This camera is way cool. Super useful for looking around at things like inside my engine compartment to find the wrench that fell down and hid somewhere I can't see.

Also fun and gross to stick down your sink drain and look at the creepy things living in your pipes. While this is not for medical purposes, I did have fun giving my teeth and nose hairs a close inspection. Yuck!

A great camera to have in your tool box or to have around for fun.

One a day and this bottle provides a two month supply.

No ill side effects that I've noticed, but it takes time to notice the good effect for sure.

However, the reading of this article;  "Grape Seed Extract: A Multifaceted Herb for Promoting Healthy Circulation"
By Kerry Bone, BSc (hons), Dipl. Phyto. 
Dynamic Chiropractic – March 1, 2014, Vol. 32, Issue 05

encouraged me to give this powerful multi faceted herb a try in my arsenal of naturopathic solutions.

Naturopathy: a system of treatment of disease that avoids drugs and surgery and emphasizes the use of natural agents (as air, water, and herbs) and physical means (as tissue manipulation and electrotherapy)

Oops

I was excited to get this. I have an old Ipad and I was looking forward to giving it a protective makeover.

However, upon removing the screen protector from the package, it broke. I am not sure how I broke it. I was pulling it out of the thick envelope when I heard a crackle-crunch. Whether it was broken in shipping or I broke it pulling it out of the envelope is a mystery.

It remained in one piece but had a spider web type crack across it.

Well, let me check on their lifetime warranty and see if this is covered. More later!

Powerfully Gets The Job Done Quickly

Greenworks 24012 7 Amp Single Speed Electric 160 MPH Blower

This is powerful!

I am living under towering oak trees with Spanish moss dripping down. These trees rain down leaves, acorns, moss plus the nearby pine sends down needles.

I love being outdoors on the patio, but sweeping up the mess is tiresome. It takes an hour to sweep up the patio so naturally it doesn't get done much.

Greenworks 24012 7 Amp Single Speed Electric 160 MPH Blower

Greenworks 24012 7 Amp Single Speed Electric 160 MPH Blower

Now that I bought this blower, it takes only 5 minutes every other day to make my patio look beautiful!

It comes without a cord, which is handy. You just plut in whatever sized cord you need. I already owned a heavy orange outdoor cord, so I plopped that in and blew away the leaves, acorns, Spanish moss,  pine needles and dirt.

After a heavy rain, I went outside to enjoy life again, but the picnic table was covered in water. I used the blower to speed dry the table in a few seconds, then I blew the cushions on the chairs to dry them. I had folded the hinged cushions over just before it rained, but still they had some moisture. The 160 mph wind this creates is awesome! My patio was dry and livable in a few minutes.

This motor is LOUD, but it does such fast speedy work, you won't be listening to it for long. I prefer to do batches and turn the motor off between sections to give my ears a break. I had never used a blower before except twice I used  the heavy duty back breaking backpack industrial gas kind that is  asphyxiating to work with.

This one has NO odor at all. It's lightweight and powerful.

Caution though....

I was wearing baggy shorts and holding the blower too close to my side. It kept sucking up my shorts! I held it further from my body and solved that problem.

Also, I had my long hair in braids rather than tied up and oops, it tried to suck up my hair braid! So be careful, don't let this thing near your hair.

Great product, good pricing. I like mine.

Great Tasting Coffee

These improve the taste of coffee substantially.

This box provides a year's supply or more. It really depends on how awful your tap water is to start with. They could last a week or two months.

Either way, I could taste the difference, so yes they really work beautifully.



Exquisite Comfort Fit For An Epicure

I love this hammock. I could swing in it for hours, getting absolutely nothing done but some serious meditation.

Double Camping Hammock - Wolfyok Lightweight Portable Nylon Hammock with Parachute Nylon Ropes and Solid Carabiners for Backpacking, Camping, Travel, Beach, Yard, 126"(L) x 78"(W) Support Up to 660lbs


First off it's jumbo! There is enough room to lay down in it and pull the hammock all around you, hiding from everyone else, or sleeping peaceably without leaves and bird poop raining down on you.

Sure you can put 2 people in it, but that is more for sitting sideways in it in my opinion. I love that his is rated for heavy use at 660 pounds.

I am a fan of sitting sideways in it, like a floating chair. I love rocking myself back and forth this way. I have a lot of aches and pains from arthritis and other complications. This hammock just takes away the pain. The weightlessness of just riding on air is oh so comforting.

Double Camping Hammock - Wolfyok Lightweight Portable Nylon Hammock with Parachute Nylon Ropes and Solid Carabiners for Backpacking, Camping, Travel, Beach, Yard, 126"(L) x 78"(W) Support Up to 660lbs



I like the attached back. It never gets lost. The bag can also be used to hold a book or bottle of water or both. The hammock easily stuffs right back into the attached bag. The parachute fabric is very sturdy, but lightweight and breaths nicely. The stitching is triple, which is very important for a well padded lady like me. I surely don't want my hammock splitting at the seams.

The carabiners included with it appear sturdy with smooth edges that won't snag on the fabric. I have been using this hammock every day for two weeks and so far it is very comfy and cozy. It got wet in the rain and dried up quickly once the torrent stopped.

Double Camping Hammock - Wolfyok Lightweight Portable Nylon Hammock with Parachute Nylon Ropes and Solid Carabiners for Backpacking, Camping, Travel, Beach, Yard, 126"(L) x 78"(W) Support Up to 660lbs


The only reason I took a star off my otherwise  5 star super happy rating, was for the rope and tree straps. The tree straps were too tiny and useless. The ropes seemed OK, but I didn't use them. I used 2 adjustable hanging straps that are 10 feet long with 15 loops sewn into each strap so that once the straps are up, it's easy to hang the hammock, adjusting it until the right height is achieved. These are the ones I used for  hanging my Wolfok hammock:

Hammock Straps (Set of 2), Sahara Sailor Hammock Tree Hanging Straps 1400+ LBS Heavy Duty Non-Stretch Suspension System Kit


I think they should sell the hammock with 2 different price points. One with just the hammock alone, in case you already have a stand or looped tree straps already. A second option at a different price would be to include the 10 feet, 15 looped straps in a pair with the hammock, for super simple fast hanging. I think buyers would love that as an extra option.

The quality is superb, I  love my hammock.

Great Idea For Identical Key Types that are Keyed Differently



This is a great idea if you have a stack of similar keys and want to organize them.

Ragu Key Organizer Key Chain Key Holder Pocket Organizer Compact Design Aircraft Aluminum Material Fit up to 10 Keys


In my case, my keys are all different types, so I wasn't able to use this effectively.

You also need separate instructions which they happily email you after purchase, so you can figure out how to install the keys and put it back together again. Then you can attach it to a regular loop (not included) with other keys if you want to be able to hang it up.

It's a great idea for identical keys. you can stack them up and have them fit nice and neatly inside. It would be easy over time to memorize which key fits what and not have to fumble around reading labels.

For instance if you are a landlord with 10 different units, you could neatly install all 10 keys. Or if you have 10 different padlocks from the same company but each one keyed differently, you could put them inside this case neatly.

Read Carefully Before Ordering, Picture, Product and Dimensions Are Different

Suburban 6261ACW Colonial White Water Heater Access Door

This was a disaster.

It's a door and flange, nearly 15 inches across.

It did not fit a 6 gallon Suburban water heater which came as standard equipment on a Pleasure-Way van camper Class B. The original door flew off the camper some where between Key Largo and 400 miles later, when it was discovered missing.

We needed a 12 by 12 inch radius door that sits on pins. This one came with a hinge and a flange, the sizing is way different that shown on the product page. I have included a picture of the tape measure across the door we received that shows the door is almost 15 inches across.

We needed Polar White and this is Colonial White. We didn't realize when ordering this that Suburban was using two different "white" colors, so that was our fault. Just so you know, the Polar White is whiter and brighter than the Colonial White which leans more towards beige.

Suburban 6261ACW Colonial White Water Heater Access Door

Suburban 6261ACW Colonial White Water Heater Access Door

If you need a door for your Suburban hot water heater, heaven help you. They come in bewildering sizes and colors and you are forced into paying for the included flange and frame. You can not get just the door. 

By the way, Suburban hot water heaters are now sold by:


I contacted them about getting a replacement door and they don't sell them directly and even so, they only manufacture and sell the door with the complete frame and flange in bewildering sizes. It's up to the consumer to find a 3rd party that may or may not have the correct door for sale. If you are lucky enough to get the right door, you have a metal frame and flange to pay for with it.  

It's counterproductive to toss a brand new frame and flange into the dump or recycle bin. 

Reading many RV forums, I find that we are not alone in this ridiculous dilemma. 

Not an eco-friendly way to do business at all!




An Angle Replicating Tool That Works Magnificently


BaiEcom NEW IMPROVED Angleizer Measuring Template Tool With Metal Knob &FREE 2 EXTRA SCREWS For All Angles and Forms| Durable | Easy To Use Tightening Mechanism | For All Surfaces

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XVL431D/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ll1&tag=recreationalvehicles-20&linkId=50ca682863ec75ab50d89d11fae4a4b0


This is a nifty tool I never knew existed until now.

In the past I have done so many projects around my old motorhome and messing about on boats, where this tool would have been invaluable.

Now that I have many more upcoming projects, I snagged this tool for making difficult angles and templates far simpler, much easier.

In my little old motorhome, angles are not perfectly 90 degrees, walls don't always run exactly straight. Laying down vinyl tile, it's critical to have each tile fit perfectly. This newfangled angle-izer solves the problem.

I only wish it had come in a reusable case to protect it between uses, but that's just me, I want to protect all my tools. I tried to put it back inside the clam shell packaging but once you've played around with it, it's not going back in the original packaging without redoing it precisely as it was packaged and that takes too much time if you are busy.

It's calibrated in inches and metric. Very handy in today's world.

Gotta run now and get onto my next project!

Handy Snap Rings

10PCS Aluminum Carabiner Clip 2 inch (2")/5 cm - Durable D Shape Carabiner for Home RV Camping Fishing Hiking Traveling Backpack and Keychain - Gift for dad - child - adult.





10PCS Aluminum Carabiner Clip 2 inch (2")/5 cm - Durable D Shape Carabiner for Home RV Camping Fishing Hiking Traveling Backpack and Keychain - Gift for dad - child - adult.

These D rings are super useful. 

My small active dog wears a vest type harness that attaches with velcro across his back. To hook in his leash, there are two rings, one on each side of the vest. Once those are both hooked into his leash, then he is safe to walk outside on his leash. If he is rambunctious, the two rings attached to the leash keep him firmly inside his harness so he can't get loose and out in traffic. 

Now with these new carabiner 2 inch rings, I can just hook one to the rings on his vest. When I am ready to walk him, it's much easier to snap the leash on. The aluminum is so lightweight he doesn't even notice the extra hardware. 

At the other end of his leash around the handle, I attach one of these D rings with my house key when I take him out  walking to do his lumps and leaks. 

I have one of those day packs for hiking that holds my camera, phone and water bottle. It has straps on ithe utility bag where these D rings can be easily affixed for light weight items. I use these D rings  to connect my soft sleeve zippered sunglass case, my vehicle key, and my little compass. Each item has it's own carabiner. Because these are aluminum rather than heavier steel the added weight is minimal.

Not Just For Kids, This Whimsical Light Is Loads of Fun and Handy Too



This lamp is cute as can be. It's not just for kids. It can add a bit of whimsy to any decor.

The flexible flower is useful for aiming your light perfectly. On the flip side, it's fun to let the stance of the flower indicate your mood or the weather. You can have a tall elegant flower, or a confused one all curled up or even a wilted flower.

The flower on the bottom is actually a suction cup to hold your phone. There is also an extra USB port for charging your phone. That's right, stick the phone on the suction cup, plug it in and charge it right off the lamp.

OCOOPA Children Table Lamp Touch Control LED Dimmable Desk Lamp Flexible Gooseneck Eye caring Reading Light with Sucker Phone Holder USB Rechargeable Kids Lamp for Study, Green


The lamp has its own rechargeable lithium battery. This means you can unplug, pick up and go anywhere with the lamp without dragging an electrical cord around with it.

For tiny homes, this means you can have one lamp do the duty of a dozen lamps, by just moving it around to where ever you need the lighting next.

I live in a motorhome, having this cute lamp around is great. I've carried it to read in bed, set it up on the dining table where I type, moved it outdoors to read at night and generally had the neighbors laughing at my eccentric light.

Upgrade Your Dashboard For Today's Electronic Lifestyle

Otium 3-Socket Cigarette Lighter Splitter 12V/24V 120W Power Adapter with 6.5A 4-Port USB Car Charger and Power On/Off Switch for iPhone iPad Samsung Galaxy GPS Dashcam Radar Detector and More
 I adore this. It's perfect for my motorhome. I have a back-up camera and a GPS both requiring a 12 volt outlet. On top of that I need USB to keep my MP3 player charged up so I can listen to it through my stereo speakers while bouncing down the highways.

My phone uses USB to stay fully charged. I now have a dash cam that requires USB power to run continuously, so this is just fantastic for upgrading my 1994 motorhome into the 21st century.

When plugged in, it lights up displaying the voltage of your battery right away. Super handy!

It has an on-off switch just above the battery indicator, so you can leave it stuck in the cigarette lighter outlet 24/7. Just turn it off when not in use to save battery power. The red LED lights will go out to let you know it is off.

The male end of the plug is sturdy and fits the cigarette lighter outlet nice and snug. It also has a protective fuse in the plug, so if it stops working, check your fuse.

The base came with 3M double stick tape already applied. Just peel off the protective shield on the tape, then stick on the dash. Clean the dash area with alcohol first, so the adhesion will have a clear clan surface to adhere.

I plugged in everything I typically use while driving, then held the base up in various areas until I found the perfect spot to attach mine.

The picture I have included shows where I  permanently mounted mine on the dash of my 1994 motorhome which is the same dashboard used on Ford E350 vans.

The outer case of this is rubbery with a nice feel. Mine is plain flat black which suits my gray dash just fine. The cord from the male socket to the triple female sockets is heavy duty, nothing flimsy at all. This seems built to last.

I am very pleased with this product and upgrade.

The Last Pair Of Shears You May Ever Buy Because These Are PERFECTION

These scissors are a treasure. They remind me of my mother's shears she had for sewing. As children, we were under strict orders to NEVER touch her shears and she was emphatic that they ONLY be used for cutting fabrics.When she began teaching me how to sew I was able to use her beloved shears which cut cloth perfectly  each and every time.

Evergreen Art Supply Super Scissors Stronger Than Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Scissors, Industrial High Carbon Steel with Comfort Grip Perfect for the Artist, Student, Home or Office


Sadly, I've never found a pair of scissors like my mother's beloved ones until NOW.

These are quality shears with a capital Q. The craftsmanship that went into these shears is very evident. They arrived in a beautiful box, with a plastic sheave over the blades. I pulled them out and could smell and feel the oil that had been thoughtfully applied. My first impression was deja vu, my mother's beloved shears have been reincarnated!

FINALLY someone has made top rate shears at a fair price. These are not cheap in cost, but their quality is superb. If you take your sewing or artwork or day to day life seriously, then you want the right tool for the right job.

These scissors are simply FANTASTIC.

I am updating this review because I needed to trim my long hair. The ends had split and it was making it hard to wash and comb. On a whim,  I realized that the best scissors in the house were these Evergreen ones, so I decided to trim my long hair with them. Amazing! I know this is a bit unorthodox, but hey, the 9 inch blades were long and super sharp, so I was able to trim my locks neatly. I even received 2 compliments from folks that didn't realize I had trimmed it myself... with these shears.

I gave these 5 stars because the scissors are EXCELLENT quality to last a lifetime.

Dull Blades and Design Didn't Work For Me or My Dog

This was a disaster for me and my dog.

Safari Mat Remover for Dog

Mine arrived with super dull blades. It did a great job of tangling up my dog's fur without cutting or removing any mats at all. We both hated it and with the dull blades, it was hopeless.

I had to return mine for refund.

My dog is 6 pound terrier chihuahua mixed mutt.

I have included his picture to show you it did not work on his type of fur.


At the urging of my dog, I used the refund to buy him toys.

Organizing the Marie Kondo Way


The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing  by Marie Kondo 
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing  by Marie Kondo

This young lady has turned organizing inside out and come up with methods that truly work. She is a celebrity in Japan and now her methods have gone worldwide.

So what's different about her methods? Well, you may have to read the book to find out but one major theory of hers is vastly different from the old style organization is sparking joy.

 Touch each item with your hand. Does it spark joy? Are you in love with it? Does it bring happiness? If not then thank the item for its past service, toss it out for donation or garbage. Move along to the next.

 Selected Quotes from  Marie Kondo

  I had a slight hope the phrase 'spark joy' might become popular, as it was the keyword that I wanted to put forward in the first place.

  Have gratitude for the things you're discarding. By giving gratitude, you're giving closure to the relationship with that object, and by doing so, it becomes a lot easier to let go.

To truly cherish the things that are important to you, you must first discard those that have outlived their purpose. And if you no longer need them, then that is neither wasteful nor shameful. Can you truthfully say that you treasure something buried so deeply in a cupboard or drawer that you have forgotten its existence?

The process of facing and selecting our possessions can be quite painful. It forces us to confront our imperfections and inadequacies and the foolish choices we made in the past.

A Versatile Handy Lamp Perfect For A Motorhome or Traveling RV

OCOOPA Clip on Desk Lamp,OCOOPA Touch Sensor Control Light 3 Dimmable Level Light Flexible Gooseneck LED Eye-caring Light Bedside Lights Desk Reading Working Lamp White



I just love it when a product comes out that is multi functional.

For over 7 years I have lived the tiny home lifestyle in a motorhome that offers less than 200 square feet of compact  living space. I am very busy with projects, typing, reading, crafts, cooking and so on.

This light is just SUPER handy. It clips to my tables, or to my window valances or to a book or catalog for reading. WHile it's designed for indoor use only, I take it outside all the time to sit on the patio and have light anywhere I want it.

This cute lamp sits on its own base when not being clipped somewhere.

The coolest thing about it being a clip on is that it is perfect for travelers in motorhomes and RV's. Everything must be attached or put away for driving. This rides quite happily clipped to a table or valance going down the road.

The goose neck is very flexible, you can aim it 360 degrees all around to anywhere. Especially handy if you have to repair something in a weird compartment on the motorhome, or anywhere, you can use it cord-free.

This lamp has a rechargeable battery installed.

It came with a white USB charging cord that works on 12 volt, 110 household adapter plug, or computer etc. The lighting is very soft and easy on the eyes, but also provides 3 different distinct settings from romantic ambiance to bright repair work.

I have included a picture of it hanging from a window valance.

Works In Cigarette Lighter Outlets

This works terrific in the car's or RV's cigarette lighter socket.It has blue lights on it, to show you it's on a live circuit and working.

However when I went to shove it into my other 12 volt outlets in my RV which are designed for low wattage and not the high wattage associated with the cigarette lighters, it would slide in, but not light up or work at all. We tried this on my RV and a friend's RV. I am unsure why it wouldn't work in those outlets. I've never run into this before and I have several of these from different companies.

That being said, it did work fine in the cigarette lighter for recharging the phone and keeping the MP3 player charged up.

A curious thing about the style is that it is black on the outside and white on the end. I guess that makes it super easy to locate on your dashboard. Personally I haven't seen a white dashboard in a month of Sundays.

All in all, it worked, the blue lights let you know it's on. The blue lights are a personal preference.  I don't like them, but others do.

This is great for carrying around your little flip phone on your finger. Can flip open, make calls and close again. No fear of dropping phone because it's on your finger.

Can also be used to hang your phone up on a hook. A cool idea if you have busy desk and cluttered home, just hang the phone up on a hook where it can't be buried beneath papers or an other detritus.

As a phone stand, it works somewhat. The round ring means you can only prop up the phone in certain angles without it falling or rolling over. It has to prop up on a low angle, not very useful for my needs.

Now the fun part. There is a spinner in back with some sort of four seasons' photo.. The spinner is fun to play with if you are waiting on a call and no one is calling. You just dial the wheel and the spinner spins. I think a graphical picture with stripes or a spiral would have been more dramatic to look at when it spins. The picture stuck in there now doesn't really do it for me.

Alternatively this ring is great for attaching it to a lanyard for  hanging your flip phone around your neck.
