    How early is to early?

    We have an old Christmas wreath waiting to be hung on our front door. Some neighbors put Christmas lights around their trees as early as this month to get in the spirit of Christmas. They leave them up until New Year's Eve.

    Mayonnaise Art

    I do not like mayonnaise on my pizza but those type of pizzas are quite interesting to look at. The restaurant is creative in making them. They never fail to amuse their customers.

    What to do with socks

    Another great idea, headbands! Now it got me thinking, why not make a baby bonnet out of old socks? After I gave birth to my daughter, a small pink bonnet was wrapped around her head to keep her warm.

    Sweet or not sweet?

    I like my tea with a slice of lemon but no sugar. I don't drink it often. Only on occasion, if we have a family gathering.

    Shhh - my daughter is making me a quilt

    Your story made me cry. When I was a kid, I made my mom a personalized letter using an onion-skin paper, rolled and tied it neatly and put it in an empty wine bottle with a cork. My mom said it was so beautiful and she hugged me.

    What to do with socks

    I would make wrist bands out of my old socks. The wristbands from Adidas store are quite expensive so why not use socks to turn them into wrist bands? I would use them since I play outdoor sports like badminton.

    Aw, I hate the mustard part on the honey basting sauce. Is there a substitute for replacing mustard? Can I use ginger juice instead? I love the tangy taste of ginger on chicken.
