Great Gardening Tips


Musician Friend
Posted on 08.16.16 by thegardengossip @

I have ordered from musicianfriend.com many times. I actually use to order from them when they just had a magazine and there was no internet! Or hardly any internet at least. The first thing I ever got was a music scarf and bag for my books because I was a music major in college so, of course I had to have all sorts of musical stuff and piano bags and scarfs so that I could look cool throughout my college years!

Pretty Wedding Accessories
Posted on 07.22.16 by thegardengossip @

My husbands cousin is getting married. It seems as though for the past 5 years there have been just so many marriages and babies! But this is the year of the marriage so I suppose next year will be the year of the babies…it seems to run on that sort of time cycle. So they are planning the wedding and my husband is in it….I am so glad that I am not and none of the kids are in it as well. I loved my wedding but I would not want to have to plan a wedding ever again. There is just too much too it and that is not including all the little things like the wedding accessories and the table centerpieces. I think that the gown and the accessories are much more fun to go shopping for than the centerpieces but that is just my opinion.

USB
Posted on 06.01.16 by thegardengossip @

I work a lot with kids and they are always singing and playing instruments so when they are performing I need a good microphone like a audio technica at2020 usb because a good microphone can make all the difference in the world. You could have a great voice or playing the violin just amazingly but if the audience is hearing the crackling sounds of the sound system and microphone Mehta tis all they are going to be focusing on which is not good!

Organic
Posted on 05.21.16 by thegardengossip @

People complain that organic is too expensive. And it really is especially at Whole Foods…they are the worst because thier all natural stuff is not organic but it is still over priced. However, there are somethings that I have to get organic and that includes strawberries, potatoes and apples. I can not go back to the other garbage….too much pesticides. I will forgo the ice cream for healthier foods for my family.

M-Audio
Posted on 05.21.16 by thegardengossip @

If you are going to record your own music then you need to have a good M-Audio interface. It is just a necessity. And you want to be able to record different tracks. Good equipment can make even the most novice guitar player sound amazing. It just makes sense that you would want to sound the best you can. And if that means that you have to get the best because your playing is not up to par then so be it! Just be sure not to play live anywhere and just always have that recording to share with people 🙂

Billy Sheehan Guitar Center
Posted on 05.21.16 by thegardengossip @

There is nothing like going outside on a nice cool summer night sitting around a fire and listening to someone play the guitar well. Of course you have to have a guitar, maybe one you may have gotten at billy sheehan guitar center before you can play it. There is something relaxing and calming about a nice song being sung to a guitar. Music can absolutely change you mood. And there is some music that can make you very angry and agitated and you don’t even realize it is because of the music!

Ladies Golf Clubs
Posted on 05.21.16 by thegardengossip @

If you are looking for that great outdoor activity to do this summer then you may just want to consider playing golf. What a great way to enjoy the outdoors and you can get great mens and ladies golf clubs right online. In fact you pretty much can get everything that you need from equipment to apparel rightonline at Blink9golf. I have always wanted to learn how to play golf because it does seem like it could be fun. Even if I was not good I think that it could be great fun…I love to play miniature golf 🙂

Padded Piano Bench
Posted on 05.21.16 by thegardengossip @

I play the piano and I have to say that when you are practicing for hours and hours you need a padded piano bench. Sitting for long periods of time is hard enough but not having a little cushion is even worse. And there are some really nice cushions out there. I personally do not like to sit on a hard bench. if you are performing it is ok but I much prefer the cushioned benches and if there is no cushion to the bench then add a cushion to it!

Pinkeye
Posted on 05.15.16 by thegardengossip @

When my daughter was little and she would get pinkeye and she also had 8 o’clock. Up I was nursing her at the time and I would always put breastmilk in her eyes which is the only thing that would clear it up. Doctors gave me medication and it never worked the only thing that worked with breastmilk. My doctors were very interested in this. Which makes me think why in the world would a Dr. not know this,,

Drum Dial
Posted on 04.29.16 by thegardengossip @

You may just need a drum dial if you are a percussionist. I want to school for music and I had many percussion friends…and they were always really pretty cool. I was in the percussion section when i was in high school…the most fun section of the entire band! I use to play the xylophone and the mallet instruments. It was a lot of fun…I actually know someone that went to college for percussion from high school. The college percussionists could really play though…nothing like hearing someone really know how to play!

Spring
Posted on 03.29.16 by thegardengossip @

I cannot believe that we are not even half way through the winter. We have around 60 days left of winter and if feels like we have been in winter mode for months now. Once the leaves are gone off the trees that is when people think it is winter even though there is usually another month and a half of that cold fall winter that just gives the illusion that it is wintertime already.

Stackable Expressions
Posted on 03.07.16 by thegardengossip @

Personally i just love stackable rings – they are just so pretty and I love how you can create a different look by stacking different colors. But the nicest part of these rings is that they make for great mothers rings. You can get the birthstones for each of your children and stack them…so pretty. Unless of course you have 8 children like my friend and then that is just way to many to stack lol
I am an online shopper…I don’t like the malls and I don’t like to go shopping unless it is from the comforts of my own home which is why stackable expressions from joyjewelers.com is the most convenient option for me when it comes to shopping for stackable jewelry.

Apples
Posted on 01.21.16 by thegardengossip @

An apple a day does keep the doctor away butso does a lemon. Take a slice of lemon and squeeze it in your water ever day for a detox. And the take some of that lemon juice and put in on you problem skin area – great stuff to clear things up and make your skin look great!

Guitar Center Austin
Posted on 01.19.16 by thegardengossip @

There are guitar centers all over the place like the guitar center austin has for example. And if you are a guitar lover then you probably have signed up for their sale events. And I have to say that they have great sales and events throughout the year. But I have noticed that their online site and prices are equally as good. My husband is a guitarist by trade and just a lover of guitars…mainly new ones that he “must” get!

Musicians Friend Used
Posted on 01.08.16 by thegardengossip @

Sometimes it just makes sense to get thing that are used and that even includes things like instruments. Why not check out the musicians friend used items. Some of the best instruments have been bought used. And if you are just learning then why would you want to get a new instrument when you can get one it is at a price that you can afford. My husband has gotten a few guitars on eBay but this site has a guarantee…ebay is more risky in my opinion.

My Rose Of Sharon
Posted on 01.04.16 by thegardengossip @

So, I replanted my rose of Sharon and it is not doing that great but it is still holding on. There was a heat wave so I am thinking that that really did not help it at all. I am hoping that will a little tender loving care that it will rejuvenate. Only time will tell I suppose. It is a difficult thing to successfully replant big plants especially this time of year.

Buy Cello
Posted on 01.02.16 by thegardengossip @

Did you know you can buy cello online now? Who would have even thought that even 10 years ago that now you would be able to get something like a cello right online! And there are many to choose from and they are guaranteed as well. The thing is that when you have someone that is just starting out learning to play an instrument you don’t want to spend that fortune. So, this is a great option for people just starting out. Cellos are such a beautiful instrument too – I love that deep, lush sound.

Mismatched Nails
Posted on 01.02.16 by thegardengossip @

Well, I am very out of the styles and I was never really in the style when it came to things like manicures and fingernail polish. Mainly because I always bit my nails. But apparently the in thing is to have mismatched nail polish on each finger. Sometimes it is just all different colors and other times it is different pictures that are on each nail. I would say that I am out of the times but I really was never in the times even when I technically was 🙂

Hercules Stands
Posted on 01.02.16 by thegardengossip @

When it comes to playing the guitar or any instrument for that matter, you need to have a good stand to put your music on such as the ones like Hercules Stands. My husband actually just broke his stand – it just tipped right over because he had a book on it! Of course you have to put a book on a music stand! So, I had to get him a new one, which worked out fine because I didn’t know what to get him for Christmas anyways!

Clean Your Garden Tools
Posted on 09.12.15 by thegardengossip @

It is always good to clean your gardening tools immediately after you have used them. This isbecause you do not know what kind of plant like diseases you will be spreading from one plant to another. Not to mention that they could rust or you could ruin your tools like your gardening scissors if you do not. So just clean them with white finegar. Get a rag and wipe it down and then just let it dry.

Musicians Friend Bass Amp
Posted on 09.11.15 by thegardengossip @

If you have a guitar then chances are you have a bass and if you have guitars and basses then you had better have that great musicians friend bass amp. I know someone that went to the music store the other day with her son and they literally spent 2 hours in this store trying out guitars. It is sometimes like a kid in a candy shop when you love instruments and music and you walk into that music store!

Making it
Posted on 09.11.15 by thegardengossip @

It is just too expensive to go out to the fancy coffee shops anymore or even the cheap chains that are a dime a dozen and that are on every corner. Just make that perfect cup of coffee at home and make a small investment in those stainless steel coffee mugs. Or you can get the disposable coffee cups if you prefer that. But personally the stainless steel is safer because who knows what those disposable cups are leaching in your very hot coffee.

I am SO looking forward to a warm and cozy winter. That is one of the best things about the winter and the cold. Is being able to near a fire, drinking hot chocolate and wrapped up in a nice warm blanket. And my husband would also add watching football too. You can read up on cozy winter items here. Because winter can also be fun. I personally love to go sledding. There is something about sledding that is just pure fun and it brings out the kid in all of us. And sometimes that is what you need to do…just have fun and be a kid again. Winter is the perfect time of year to get together with family and play games on that snowy evening. Sure you have to wake up to a foot of snow that you have to shovel but why not enjoy the peacefulness of the snowfall because the salting and plows start flying by!

Raccoon Problems?
Posted on 09.01.15 by thegardengossip @

If you are having raccoon problems in your yard or garden or especially near your trash cans then here is a great natural way to keep them away. Just sprinkle some Epsom salt around the area and they will be sure to stay clear of the area. Just be sure to put some more out after a rain storm.
