Sid Richardson developed an affinity for the works of Frederic Remington and Charles Russell. It was their romantic images of the legends of the Old West that so drew Richardson in and this was the genesis of the Sid Richardson Museum.

It’s not just Remington and Russell which line the walls here. Western landscapists like Bierstadt and Moran, pre-Civil War documentarians like Catlin, Bodmer, Miller, Kane, and Wilmar, and other lesser known artists like Gilbert Gaul and Charles F. Browne are some of those included in the Richardson museum.

It’s not just sweeping landscapes or wide open spaces which drew Richardson’s eye. In fact, many of the works in his collection include those which had epic scenes of action or drew out gasps of suspense and amazement.

Tips for Mixing Your Own Non-Toxic Furniture Polish

If you have decided to make this year the year that you go green, congrats! You are taking a positive step for your home and the environment. One of the biggest hurdles to get over is green cleaning. When you have the right ingredients, homemade green cleaners will work just as well as the chemical based products that you are used to.

Tips for Mixing Your Own Non-Toxic Furniture Polish

Clean off your wood surfaces with one of these eco-friendly polishers.

For your varnished wood table, pick up a bit of lemon oil. Mix a few drops of this natural oil with water in a spray bottle. Spray the wood and work the mix in with a soft cloth.

For wood that is unvarnished, you want to create a mix of two teaspoons olive oil and two teaspoons lemon juice. Work this mixture on your unvarnished wood furniture with a soft cloth. The oil will help protect the wood and the lemon will kill any errant bacteria.

If there are any grease or food stains on your wood furniture, use a small amount of baking soda and water to scrub the spot. The baking soda is abrasive enough to clean yet soft enough so that it will not scratch your wood surface.

What are your favorite homemade green cleaners?

Indoor Plants that are Safe around Pets

Echeveria is a unique plant that is also safe around pets.

Echeveria is a unique plant that is also safe to grow around pets.

Certain plants and pets don’t mix! There are lots of pretty plants out there that attract kitties and puppies to eat them, but can land them with an emergency trip to the vet or worse. This is why knowing which plants are safe to keep in the house at our Fort Worth apartments is vital.

Here are a few great plants to grow indoors that won’t hurt your pet if he or she takes a bite or two:

  • Bamboo – from tiny plants to huge reeds, bamboo makes for a wonderful house plant.
  • Blue Echeveria — these look like giant blue roses and are just stunning pieces of decor in the house.
  • Ponytail Palm — lush and inviting, these potted palms give any room a stunning look.

Keep plants out of reach to keep them beautiful, but don’t worry about these perfectly safe indoor plants if your pet decides to munch, and visit the ASPCA for a full list of both safe and toxic house plants.
