New location - same amount on strange - Moving to new blog location

Originally I had planned to start the blog with the beginning of the year, but that everyone starts their New Year's Resolutions January 1st, I decided to start mine now.    It is still a work in progress so if something isn't readable of any suggestions on making it better, please let me know.

The reinvention will be more of the same strange that this blog has been, but also intend to throw in more nostalgic items as I participate on a "Do You Remember When" blog on Facebook and it is fun to share memories and hear other people's stories.

New location and name:
Unique Unusual or Interesting II

Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you at the new location:)

Fruit Christmas Tree

Photo:  Source

I have seen flat fruit Christmas Tree displays but this is the first time I have seen the idea go 3-D.  It looks festive and at the same time features healthy fruits to snack on.

This was from Jeanne Benedict and it was a spin-off on a veggie tree she had created previously  "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee".

To make the base is made of cabbage and green and purple grapes, cantaloupe, watermelon balls, kiwi and Clementine orange wedges, but you could use use your imagination, but you would probably want to make a day in advance Christmas Veggie version took 1-2 hours to put together.  Still, would be worth it if you wanted to impress your Holiday guests.

For details see the post for Fruit Christmas Tree visit Jeanne Benedict's website.

Turn Grandma's Old Jewelry into Christmas Decoration

If you have inherited Grandma's old jewelry and not into wearing vintage pieces you can celebrate them by turning them into a clever Christmas decoration using an old picture frame, black velvet around an inner cardboard layer and pin or glue the pieces to the velvet.

Salvation Army Bell Ringer that seems to love his job

So many times I see bell ringers this time of year that seem to view their duties as an unpleasant task and I can understand it might be discouraging to try to get donations only to have people walk on by.

Still, it is refreshing to see someone that really goes the extra mile and seems to enjoy what they are doing.

Happy Thanksgiving 2016

While the video is title "Easy Way To Prepare a Turkey" actually it is more like the Rube Goldberg method of cooking (and obviously, the video is for entertainment purposes only...don't try this at home.)
