Small Glass With Decorative



    10 Dirt-Cheap Ways To Make Your Apartment More Presentable

  • This might set you back a few bucks, but look at it as an investment — you can always switch back to the old knobs before you leave your apartment and bring the new ones to your new place. put all of your red books on one shelf, and all of your blue ones on another. To make a tray from an old frame, simply place a decorative piece of paper in the frame (wrapping paper will work) and add metal handles to each side. Other great things that you can hang on the wall include maps, beer bottle caps, playing cards and ticket stubs from events that you’ve attended over the years. Use an old frame to make a tray, and then use that tray to corral the contents of your coffee table. Grab all your random decorative items and put them in a pile, then redistribute them. You’ll be surprised at how different they look once you’ve moved them to a different location. It’s better than writing on the walls with permanent marker like we did in high school.



Updates to the Living Room

On top I put a glass round, some of my decorating books and a Christmas cactus plant. I think the table needs some other decorative object but can't figure out how to make it work with the plants, which have to stay. Next to it is another Jon Von Koert side table accessorized with live plants. So this wall of the living room had an old mid century modern oak chair with crappy upholstery (actually the colors and flame-stitch pattern are pretty just not in my blue/turquoise living room) that I always meant to change but never got around... A Nate Burkus spiky gold urchin and an african violet plant rounds out the top. I want a new pot for my plant. On the floor is my plant in an Ikea white pot. The plant stand to the left has been in my family for years. The coffee table is a large glass top oriental table with Ming style legs. On top is a mirrored/mercury glass ribbed lamp with a rectangle shade from Target, but I found it for 1/3 the price at the Salvation Army in perfect condition with the Target tags still on it. I'd like to add some trim the the bottom of the shade. I am also thinking about painting the living room and dining room so the space is more cohesive. It was a quick Craigslist purchase for $35 when my Room and Board sofa wouldn't fit up the stairs to my condo when I moved in. The style was fine for the room and it was comfortable. I'm not very good at the small decorating touches because I typically like clean surfaces. Currently the dining room is green and the living room turquoise. The tables are designed by Peter Hvidt & Orla Molgaard – Nielsen for France & Son along with the coffee table that you can't really see well. I love all the hidden storage this table gives me and the carved pattern on the table. The lamps have been replaced by mercury glass lamps from Target for $55 each. The end tables have a pretty carved design and creamy marble tops that match the octagon on the other side of the room. The mid century stuff was pretty and mostly good designer pieces but it never felt like me.   I've been making changes for the last several months but just haven't gotten around to taking pictures. I like how the royal blue ties into the royal blue in the drapes across the room. I don't like that there is no place for guests to put a glass so the top will probably be tweaked sometime in the future. I added a small lucite tray on the one table. If it was a chair that was used in the living room all the time I don't think it would work. On the opposite side of the room I had my pretty vintage drapes in blues and greens on a creamy background (They are a little short but whatever. Next to it is a Jon Van Koert mid century modern walnut table with a white ginger jar lamp with a pleated shade and some pheasant statues from the 1960s. I could have taken the shades back but I really love the opaque look of the shades. I think I've mentioned that I wanted to move away from my totally mid century modern style to more of a Hollywood regency/Chinoiserie style. I'd love some black and white photography or prints from The Pink Pagoda or maybe move in the large abstract from the dining room here. Unfortunately the shade do-hicky that sits on the light socket is a little too big for the lamp so the shades rock. The new look is a pretty Italian regency side chair with a blue floral stripe. I've thought about a pretty greek key but am using that in a large scale in another room so would like something different here. The top of the elephant isn't perfectly flat so the glass wobbles. And unfortunately my picture taking ability hasn't improved any from the last time I took pictures of the living room. I think that is about all the updates to the living room I've made over the last few months. I'm thinking a small 4"x6" abstract. It's ugly but Sebastian my dog loves it. On the other end table I have a large Van Briggle Console bowl with 3 orchids in it. The orchids are growing new leaves but not blooming. I wish it were a little bigger but think this direction change makes the room feel more cohesive. In front is my 1960's Hans Wegner AP 27 chair and ottoman in a pretty avocado green color with an Ikea pillow. I also like how the leggy chair looks next to the solid to the ground table. Again this chair is more petite and not quite as comfortable as the loungy former chairs. Now I have a pretty peacock blue slipper chair with ottoman pipped in a cream color. I've got a pretty royal blue vase, from TJ Maxx for only $2 on clearance, with paper flowers I made. When I moved I changed everything up and went with mid-century modern and all new (vintage) furniture which never felt right.   I have my eye on a pretty sofa from Room and Board in custom upholstery in an Ink color. It used to be a blue lamp, prior to that a wood mid-century modern one. In my old living room everything had exposed legs and it drove me nuts. Even though the table is probably from the 1970's I don't really want it to scream I'm old. The TV is big but I enjoy it. I spray painted the retro clock a champagne gold (kinda a silver/gold look). But realistically I'm the only one in the living room 90% of the time. I really love the way the room feels now. I changed the lamp on this table several times. The pillows are a pretty blue and green pattern from TJ Maxx. Next to it is a fruit wood octagon table with creamy marble top. I've used a black Nate Burkus shade for $25. I sometimes think about adding a bottom panel and a leading edge in a solid fabric to make them fit better. I think I'm going to have to live with it for another year or so. The chevron rug is still here. Typically more than I would pay but I fell in love with it. Its much smaller than the old chair and frankly not as comfortable. Oh I also need to hide the cable for the TV that runs around the perimeter of the room. I purchased the table from Craigslist for $125 plus free delivery. It still has the Murano lamp I purchased from Craigslist for $25 with the thrift store pagoda shade. I have a pretty lucite easel I'd love to use. I want to remove the violet and add another item to the table but I'm not sure what. It's held up well and the cream still looks pretty good. I bought it at the same time from the same estate as the striped blue chair and it was $120. Next to it is my elephant table I purchased from Craigslist for $45. The lamps are a white raised design with shades with silver linings. I added back the kennel to the side of the table. My couch savings have been diverted to other necessary projects like saving for a new car.

Stocking an aquarium?

I recently bought a ten gallon aquarium (20" x 10" x 12"). I have a filter that works with up to a 20 gallon tank. I have one of the stone bubble things, and I bought a heater. I saw a the bettas sitting in their tiny bowls and felt real sorry for them, and decided to bring a male crowntail betta home. Well he was doing just fine, but I thought it would be nice to add some more life to the tank. I have planted live plants that are just beginning to grow. I bought one black mystery snail and a ghost shrimp, having read in his container and online that they were alright to place with him. He hasn't bothered any of them or seems angry at all. Two weeks later, because I thought another fish would be real nice, I bought two white clouds and an african dwarf frog. Everyone is getting along great it seems. What I would like to know is, since I have now found out that white clouds are schooling fish, should I go ahead and buy three more so they will school and be happy? It seems to me that since they are so small, that it shouldn't be a problem, and when I told the lady at petco what I had (she actually reffered to my tank as big, I think mostly because she's used to people putting bettas in vases and what not) she said that the animals I picked were perfect and he should have plenty of room, and that oxygen shouldn't be a problem with the filter and the bubble stone thing and the live plants. So would this be okay? I just want all the fish to be happy. And to mention one more thing. My betta doesn't seem to be very aggressive. sometimes he flares up looking at himself in the glass (which I hope won't be as reflective when the plants are fully grown), but he doesn't chase or flare up at the other animals.


Is your tank cycled? If not, you still have the New Tank Syndrome, or I should say the fish, to survive and go thru. Read up on fish-in cycling to keep tham all healthy and thriving. White Clouds are cooler water fish and Betta needs 78 degrees minimum. Conflict of water temp needs. If you were to add more white clouds (a total of 5-6) this wouldn't leave much room for the Betta. White Cloud adult size 2". African Dwarf Frogs need to be in groups to thrive and hiding places. With no eyelids they need dark places they can go to rest. Can you return the white clouds and buy a couple more adf's? None of them need a bubble stone unless you're using it for decorative purposes then, of course, it's fine.

Nice question. I had the same question when i got my first tank a while ago. Now i have a 72g tank and have really progressed. 10g tanks are pretty small but from what you have written, it sounds like your tank is doing fine. I think you can add two or three more small fish but after that, stick to that amount or else the nitrate levels may get too high, but they probably won't get too high because you have real plants in your tank which are always a plus. Good luck with your fish!

Can I keep my beta fish in these bowls?

I have 3 bowls that I bought a Walmart but they weren't specified for fish, they were just decorative glass containers, and they look to be about 2-4 gallons each. I put fish rocks at the bottom and bought a small plastic plant for each bowl, and I wanted to buy 3 beta fish (and keep them in separate bowls of course). do you think these containers will be okay, or do I need to buy the specified fish bowls? I will clean them every week since in dont have a filter. also, are temperatures from 75-86 acceptable for these fish? because my room tends to be very warm and I don't want to harm the fish. thanks for your help!


They should be fine. . . But, they have to be at least around 3 gallons, and they have to be able to see out of the container. Just so they get used to people, understand who you are, (it isn't nessisary, but it makes the fish a lot more interesting). The temperature is great, and its good youre not filtering them, bettas don't like filtration - and filtering anything under 5 gallons is extremely difficult-- the current can be too strong in small bowls. I have 8 males, who all live in 2.5 to 3 gallon tanks; they've lived in them for over a year and do fine. As long as you can manage their water (watching the ammonia, pH, and such) it should be fine. I breed bettas, and my house isn't exactly HUGE, so 5 gallon heated and filtered tanks would be a hassel, then again, cleaning 8 tanks everyweek is a hassel. haha. Try it, maybe just try one fish see if it works out, however if you buy your fish from walmart, don't expect them to be "quality, young, healthy" fish. Try going to a locally owned pet store, you might have better luck finding a fish that isn't loaded with disease.

Fish lover | Mar 13, 2013
bowls aren't good idea no matter what size they are because it's hard to keep the water quality good . as i know all fish needs a filter ( because in the filter a lot of beneficial bacteria grows) and Betta fish needs hood because they can jump . also stable temperatures are preferable the water should be 26-30C , sudden water temperature changes can cause the fish go to stress or shock . Instead of getting bowls , how about getting 4-5 gallon fish tank kits which will have everything you need to get started? also before you get any types of fish you have to re-search about the ''nitrogen fish-less cycle''. in bowls especially with out the filtration system the fish tank cycle cannot be completed so the good bacteria might not be able to grow much due to water changes etc, also when the fish are in non cycle fish tanks and bowls the fish can only suffer because in new bowls and fish tanks the ammonia can raise quickly and harm the fish..
Noah | Mar 13, 2013
When it comes to fish it is honestly hit or miss. I happen to keep fish in fancy aquariums with fancy filters and more knowledge than i can handle. The reality, doesn't make a difference. ive kept bettas in an assortment of decorative bowls for years, it is neither cruel nor impossible AND IT WORKS.....WELL. Bettas are hardy, keep the bowl clean and you will be fine.My aunt has had hers in a decorative bowl for five years. Good luck and don't let anyone paint you as an evil fish abuser.....we all know those people are the worst

I always put my betas in bowls and always recommend it, I know this sounds crazy but our betas that lived in tanks were never as lively or happy as those in small bowls. I do not do cycling.

Publisher: Atlantic Publishing Company

About this book
A windowsill is among the best possible places to put a plant — it provides ample sunlight, brightens the look of your home from the outside, and adds what amounts to a filter to the air coming in and out of your home. In winter, they can add a touch of color to an otherwise drab view, and in summer they thrive. But, not every plant grows well in these conditions – with as many as 40 percent of most houseplants according to Garden Guides not needing nearly that much sunlight. The selection of the right houseplants for your windowsill is a necessary step to ensuring they survive and thrive. This book will guide you through the steps needed to select the perfect plants for your windowsill and cultivate them to both fit in with your space and to survive the conditions, whether inside or outside. You will learn everything you need to know to effectively plant windowsill plants and improve how your home and your windows look to the world outside. You will learn, through a series of detailed charts, which plants are best suited to the cramped space of a windowsill and which ones will only give you problems. You will learn how much light each plant needs and how much water and food they need and whether you need to supplement natural provision of these resources. You will learn how to care for your plants while keeping away pests and animals that may eat the leaves or dig up the dirt. Top experts in gardening have been interviewed and their insights will help you learn what works and what doesn’t work for your windowsill plants. From first planting, whether by seed or potted plant, you will have every resource you need to keep your windowsill plants alive and thriving in their new environment with this book.

    A Couple of Quirks...but they work

    0 3/5 B. Walters "Super Mom" (Layton, UT, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Aqua Globes AG011706 Glass Plant Watering Bulbs, 2-Pack (Lawn & Patio) I bought six of these to water my large potted plants while we are gone in the summer. Once receiving them, I immediately tried them. I filled them with water, made the hole in the dirt first with something else, and inserted the globes. Water started leaving the globes quickly and within 10-15 minutes, the globes were empty! I was hoping water would stay in the globes long enough to water the plants for at least one week, and they were empty. I soon realized that your plants have to be saturated with water FIRST, then as the dirt around the globes dries, water is released from the globe. Another thing, dirt does get trapped in the stem sometimes. Overall, just make sure that your plants are watered very well before you insert the globes, then they will slowly release the water the plant needs. I've had comments on how pretty they are in the plants also. I think they do the job without having to ask your neighbor to come water your plants while you're gone. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 15, 2009

    Going Global

    Aqua Globes are one of those myriad "as seen on TV" products that promise to change your life. Mrs. Spudman picked up a box along with the equally promising "Smooth Away" miracle that is also "seen on TV."In the box were two Aqua Globes, each made of hand-blown glass, and even this skeptical Spudman must admit are somewhat attractive and stylish. The globes are about 11 inches long and far too fragile to put into the hands of your pet gorilla or chimpanzee.The long thin tips are "cut" at an angle at the ends to help with ease of filling and inserting into potting soil.When we bought our present home, we inherited a potted palm tree that's' close to five feet tall now. It showed signs of stress after being transplanted into a larger pot, so Mrs. Spudman chose it as a candidate for the Aqua Globes.After several weeks, I noticed that the Aqua Globes were still full of water and brought it to the attention of the Globe master.

    0 4/5 Tamra Too "tamratoo" - See all my reviews This review is from: Aqua Globes AG011706 Glass Plant Watering Bulbs, 2-Pack (Lawn & Patio) I have a set of 4 of these, I think they are the mini version. So far they are working very well. I am in Texas and use these outdoors in medium size pots of herbs. They last for about a week before needing a refill. I kind of cringed when I read reviews from people complaining about how hard they are to fill and then saying that they just trickle water from the sink spout into them. I just fill a pitcher with water then submerge the globe until it fills. Takes about 30 seconds. You do need to pre-drill a hole to avoid having soil clog them up, and you may have to move them around a bit before getting a perfect placement, but once they are placed properly they do exactly what they claim to do. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 19, 2011

    Cute, but cruel. Sorry, but it's true!

    I was really excited about finding this wall-mounted fish bowl, and when it arrived I was delighted. I got it set up (it was very easy to hang), added my beta and thought it looked fabulous.

This is a lie to get people to buy betas in cups). After a few weeks I broke down and bought a small aquarium.

While I would never put a fish in here ever I bought some river rocks, and tea light candles. I covered the bottom with the river rocks filled the "tank" half ways with water and put in the tea light. It looks so beautiful and brings a smile to my face when ever I walk by them. Sometimes I take out the candles and put in a fake flower, or put rose petals in them.

The Black and White Pearls are Sold Separately Easy to use, last a long time. I played with a pack nearly three weeks before my event and they are still looking GREAT. I was scared they would be hard to use and arrange but they are super easy! You just put the gels in water 12 to 14 hours before making the arrangements , then once they have grown to the full size you arrange your pearls or diamonds (I used plastic gems) and it looks beautiful! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 8, 2013

    One Packet will generate about 8 measuring cups of hydrated Transparent Water Gels.
    The Transparent Water Gels is a good source of water for fresh cut flowers, plants (see 3rd photo), and are safe for The Pearl Beads. They are removable and reusable.
    The Jumbo Pearls are the hottest trend and you can use this product, our Transparent Water Gels to float the Pearls. The Transparent Water Gels works like magic. (the Pearls that are showing in the photos are sold separately and the vases are not for sale). Our Transparent Water Gels are tiny clear color balls at first (see 4th photo) to be used for floating The Pearls, making a unique and elegant floating look which can be used with or without floating candles or flowers for table centerpieces and great as stockings stuffers.
    Please note that this product The Transparent Water Gels is transparent and is not the Pearls that are showing in the photos (the Pearls are sold separately). You will need this product our Transparent Water Gels which is SPECIALLY made to FLOAT the Pearl Beads and for MAXIMUM TRANSPARENCY. You will need to order the Pearl Beads Packs (sold separately in the color of your choice) for the Floating Pearls Concept. One Jumbo Transparent Water Gels Packet fills 8 cups of water for your vase and you can use only some of it if you want to. Our Transparent Water Gels are very easy to prepare, just add water to The Transparent Water Gels. You can use tap water if it is clear otherwise use distilled water or boil water for 2 minutes and cool down. Soak for 12-14 hours to hydrate and expand, and as a result they will become a transparent gel like balls that will help the Pearl Beads float. You can also transport or store them for later use after they are hydrated in a seal-able plastic bag. You can also keep the arrangement looking good for a long time by changing the water every 3-4 Weeks. You can also store the dry Water Gels for several years, in a dry place away from direct Sun light.
    A Preperation Instructions Sheet ( very easy) is included with every order.

    1/27/14 Rating upgrade: Works okay (though not on auto) but very overpriced

    [NOTE 1/27/14: Based on a "new and improved" unit that Roolen sent me for testing, I have upgraded my original rating from one star ("the worst humidifier I have used") to three stars. Please see my detailed update below].I received this at no cost in exchange for writing a review. I am at a loss to understand all the five star reviews, none of which mention this humidifier's numerous deficiencies that I and other critical reviewers describe in detail. So let's take a look at this product.1. This is a cool mist humidifier where the mist shoots straight up. There is no way to direct it to the side--such as toward beds--as is possible on much less expensive humidifiers.2. There are four settings--standby, low, high and automatic.Supposedly the auto feature will keep the room at 40-55% humidity. But when I set this to auto, nothing happened. So the auto sensor was worthless.3. As a couple of other reviews note, if you run this... 3/5 Stephen M. Charme (central New Jersey) - See all my reviews, November 8, 2013

    Updated review: Energy efficient yet with some compromises

    Update: Jan. 24, 2013: While the humidifier is working for my purposes, I believe it will be helpful to look at critical reviews and understand the issue with potential spillages.Please note that I received a complimentary unit with the expectation of an objective review.Why I liked it:* Doesn't need a filter.* Energy-efficient. It uses a fan rather that heating element, the first principle of energy efficiency for humidifiers.* Really nice in appearance.* Company seems more than willing to please the customer judging by my communications with them.* Most simple settings I've ever seen in a humidifier this size - just one button.Why I feel critical regarding it:* It spills when moved. The water comes out of the bottom, providing there is a lot of water in the reservoir. (new: Jan. 24, 2013: see comment section below)* The highest setting is not enough to get things wet around the unit. That's normally a... 4/5 Citizen John (USA) - See all my reviews, January 6, 2014

    I am very noise sensitive and this is great!

    Lost one star for "no water level indicator" and "no handle on top to help move it around" (you have to hold both the bottom and top at the same time when moving it around if you do) , also would have liked other color choices (like tan, brown or blue).HOWEVER it is a GREAT QUIET unit... and I don't mean quiet like almost no noise except for a terrible high pitched whine (like the Vicks has) --- no, I mean nearly SILENT. The only noise is an almost imperceptable motor noise that your head has to be right up to the unit to even hear. So it noise is your concern this is the unit to buy.The controls are simple. One button and one light for everything. See a sort of bright green light - it's on low. See a very bright green light - it's on high. See a white light - it's on automatic(will keep the room at 55% humidity or so which is ideal. See a red light? That means it's out of water.(but I'd still like a water level indicator)I... 4/5 Honest Consumer (USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
