Cashews & Poison Ivy and what they have in common.

 

I think somewhere in my life, I have read about how we get cashews.  The thing that puzzles me is why I didn’t remember this information.  Seriously, this weird nut grows on the bottom of a “cashew apple.”  How can you forget something so bizarre?

The apple portion is actually an accessory fruit and the nut hangs beneath the apple. Even weirder, the nut isn’t actually a nut in a botanical sense, it’s actually a seed.

The red and yellow apples can be eaten but they are very delicate and do not ship well. They are made into juices, jams and liqueur.

I love this house!  I’m especially in love with the little boy’s bedroom since I have a young grandson.

You can check out photos from around her house below but there are so many great ideas in this home that you will want to hop on over to Simply Beautiful by Angela and check out all of her posts.

She also has some great DIY projects for the home that you won’t want to miss.

Spring is here and the first flowers have come and gone.  Now the second round of flowers are blooming including these roses in the rose garden.

RED & TURQUOISE ♥ FOR YOUR KITCHEN

I love turquoise and red!  I have loved these color combinations as far back as I can remember.  Maybe because it reminds me of my grandmothers and my younger days when life was simple and carefree.

GALVANIZED FINDS AT WALMART ~ ALL UNDER $18

Whether you are looking for galvanized pieces for the inside your home or something for the patio, galvanized pieces always look amazing.  Walmart has some of these items in store but when I looked at my local store yesterday, they were sold out of a lot of these pieces.  You can order items on line with free shipping or you can order online and pick them up at your local store, sometimes even the same day!

I order online because I can get money back through swagbucks or ebates.  It’s win-win for me.
