If you’ve had a set of light colored dishes for a while, you’ve probably noticed a fair amount of grey scratches from metal use.

How To Make An All-Natural Conditioning Furniture Polish
When we renovated our living/family room a few years ago, we knew we wanted to replace some of our old pieces of furniture. I love Scandinavian design, so I already had my eye on a few different pieces from IKEA. I also loved IKEA’s prices, which would allow us to stretch our budget. My husband, ...

After having been to Dr. Thompson for both a surgical procedure (eyelid surgery) and injections, I can't recommend him high enough! After two other less-than-satisfactory visits with other plastic surgeons, Dr. Thompson was a godsend! I trust him implicitly.

I'm afraid he's stuck with me for life! :-)
