Your Daily HomeScope for November 18, 2023

If home is where the heart is, why shouldn’t it follow the same stars that we do? Our relationships with our homes are sacred, and like most, could use a bit of counseling here and there. Tap on your sun sign and start making your house more of a home today!


Begin a cost-cutting measure for your garden, and hence, your pocketbook by starting a compost bin today. Your county extension program probably has an inexpensive or free class you can enroll in to get started. Or try a gardening club for even more camaraderie.


Melons that are aromatic and sweet are ready to harvest. The lime-green flesh of honeydews is pretty on your table in a bowl of contrasting color. Provide toothpicks so your uninvited yet welcome guests can snack while you freshen up.


You fell asleep journaling again and the ink on your sheets proves it. Hair spray works well to combat many ink stains. Rinse the fabric afterward to remove the product. Then consider journaling in the morning, at least until you catch up on your sleep.


Your ingenuity wins the day. Use floor to ceiling drapery to cleverly hide a closet in a room with no space for storage. Chose fabric that matches or complements your bedspread for a great look.


'Jump right in' is a motto that has served your passion. You are not afraid to get your hands dirty -- in the garden that is. Running your nails over a bar of soap before you begin will help keep dirt from embedding under your nails.

Your dream has overwhelmed your tendency to be strictly realistic and what is unfolding before your eyes could not make you any happier. As you remake what was once a warehouse space into your dream apartment, consider a double-sided cabinet that can be used as storage and a room divider.


If you don't take the time this morning to double-check your list, the party will be in full sway when you finally get your grill burning properly. If you suspect you'll need the extra time, take it and don't apologize to anyone for being organized.


Whoever said you have to wait until Monday to start a fitness routine needs to get their head examined. Should you and a coworker decide to implement a walking program on your lunch hour, there is no day like the present to begin.


You don't live in a museum. Focus on what is relevant to the way you want to live and design your rooms, one at a time, around what pleases and comforts you. Pack up or give away the stuff that no longer enriches your life.


Filling your home with trinkets from the places you have traveled gives your wanderlust a chance to rest before the next adventure. Play up the weathered finishes in your living room with the driftwood you found during a beach vacation and an antler you discovered in the woods near your home.


Making do with your existing space can help you showcase your collection of unusual curios. Shelving increases your storage volume, and, depending on the shape of the shelves and the contents, adds an architectural element to the room.


'Take it out, use it and put it back' was not a value your mother ingrained in you, but it is a trait you strive to root in your progeny. You want your children's toys to be accessible, but you also encourage them to pick up after themselves. Designated boxes or baskets in appropriate rooms are great for this purpose.
