Beautiful! I hope when my son (now three) grows up, he will do nice things like this for me :)

Hi! Yes, the throw is removable. Sometimes it droops down a bit at the top so I was thinking about adding a little invisible tie on, but so far it's been great :)

That's a great idea! Our baby is already three, but I will definitely take pictures of him reading his little books in the rocker! Thanks so much for your kind words :)

Hm. That does seem odd. With all the talented bloggers everywhere, you'd think AT would get enough submissions to run a dozen a day. Maybe not?
Anyhoo - lovely update!

Dear Apartment Therapy,
Thank you for providing a place for creative individuals to have their work recognized, appreciated and critiqued. However, you know you don't have to publish EVERYTHING that is sent to you, right?

Thanks for the post, AT. I'm seriously considering searching for a cleaning lady (or dude!) this year. For us, it would be a well justified expense to free up a few hours (more time for diy projects!). Plus, if I can contribute to the success of a local small business, so much the better!

Maxwell's interview skills need a little honing...he frequently interrupted Nate's line of thought and he also insulted the book cover (all of which Nate handled graciously)...yesh, awkward :\

Fantastic! Love the combination of quirky and sophisticated. It seems like a fun place to hang out with equally fun owners!

Yes! I personally like having a clean and comfy home for myself. However, I also love to host and I think having a tidy home has created a lot of social opportunities. Our friends and family frequently make impromptu visits and I suspect it's because they know we won't feel on the spot or embarrassed. We're always ready and happy to see them and share our home.
