Easy Chart For Food Portioning

0 Comment

If you are looking to watch portion control especially at supper time, here is an easy guide to help out without measuring or weighing your food. Naturally, the 2 portions of vegetables take up most of the dinner plate, a palm of protein, a small fist of carbs and a thumb tip of fat rounds out your dinner. This gives you a reasonably well balanced main meal and a portion of fruit to finish it off. And lots of water all through the day will help with digestion.

Now In Stock – Table Top Fire Pots

0 Comment

Table top fire pots have been an ongoing product at Charter House for years. They make great wedding, housewarming gifts or just a gift you want to give yourself. The pots are an attractive addition to any outdoor space and can be color co-ordinated to match your decor.

MANUFACTURING: Each fire pot is crafted by hand and no two are the same. Small color differences and imperfections are considered part of the hand-crafted appeal. The pot does not get hot, it is safe for any surface.

COLORS: Featured here are six colors. Brown Emerge, Coral, Midnight, Chestnut, Ocean and Moss. Coral is a limited edition color, if it is accepted well, it may be added as a permanent color. The Brown Emerge is a split between brown and green, some fire pots show way more green and some show more brown. Either one is beautiful. There are other shapes, colors and sizes of fire pots available in-store.

CARE: Cover or store your fire pot when not in use. The lids are not water tight, nor are they meant to be water tight. Store indoors in the winter, they are not meant for extreme cold temperatures. Wash by hand with soapy water when dirty.

GEL FUEL: Each can of fuel lasts 2.5 – 3 hours. You may start and stop your gel as many times as you need by putting the lid on the can and extinguishing the flame. Use a with a BBQ lighter to light your gel. It comes in unscented and citronella scent; customers tell us the citronella works well to keep mosquitoes away.

Laundry is a task most ladies do not care for. (I don’t mind doing laundry at all…the house smells so nice.) This is a great laundry room hack that looks much better than the Costco size orange Tide bottles and blue Downy bottles. You may even have this glass lemonade dispenser in the basement collecting dust. Clean it up and pour in liquid laundry detergent or fabric softener. The spigot lets you dispense the right amount of liquid and you can see at a glimpse if you need to buy more. The dispensers can be decorated up with ribbon or chalkboard paint…all of a sudden your bland laundry room has a color scheme. Purchase smaller lidded jars for dryer sheets and stain remover products.

New Art Arrivals From Mercana

0 Comment

The Benoit wall hung candle holders are fabulous in a matte gold finish. They are a huge statement at 16″ wide, 6″ deep, by 72″ tall. We currently have them on each side of a Hillsboro love seat but they could easily be at home in a hallway or on each side of a bed. In between the Benoit candle holders are 4 metal wall art leaves (Oriska I & II) which are a beautiful mixture of muted greens with gold ribbing. Oriska I is 15″ x 2″ x 21″ and Oriska II is 22″ x 2″ x 29″. They can definitely fill a wall.

Also just arrived is more art from another favorite supplier of ours, Renwil. There should be new art on the walls in a day or two.

Legend Of Pussywillows

0 Comment

Found this legend of where pussywillows come from. Credit the internet somewhere.

According to an old Polish legend, a mother cat was crying at the bank of the river where her kittens were drowning. The willows at the edge longed to help her, so they swept their long graceful branches into the river to rescue the tiny kittens who had fallen in while chasing butterflies.

The kittens gripped on tightly to their branches and brought them safely to shore. Each springtime since, goes the legend, the willow branches sprout tiny fur-like buds at their tips where the kittens once clung.
