proper etiquette and manners and cookbooks.
they are always a good read and quite entertaining.
i found one of these over the weekend and started reading it.
i realized this could be a fun weekly blog posting.
kind of like eloise or miss manners.
so from now on every wednesday expect to see
a post on helpful household tips, proper etiquette
and manners and maybe even a recipe on occasion.
here is this weeks tip:
"i saw a painter put a small piece of sandpaper under
each end of a heavy frame when standing it on a narrow ledge.
i tried the same thing when a large mirror was inclined to slip
forward from its resting place on a mantel, and found it
successful. the folds of sandpaper were so small that they
did not show, and the mirror did not move again."
Mrs. G.L.S., Cal.
