i hadn't thought about maggi in yeeeeeeeeeears! my dad used to put it in milk and drink it. he also loved it in bloody marys (and soup i think). as i recall it came in liquid form too. now i have to buy some just for sentimental reasons.

i can't speak for the other furniture makers but eastvold custom pieces are the best quality furniture made by hand with thoughtful design carefully chosen materials. we own/have owned a number of eastvold pieces and have only been thrilled with them. you can rest assured a piece bought today is tomorrow's heirloom. (and he's a great guy too!)

i can see how you might think this was a good idea but so far-really not.

it's clunky, and text heavy, and cheap looking. i'm sorry to pile on but this is not attractive, not contemporary and not user friendly.

i have my sweaters in a cedar cupboard with moth repellant and traps and my knits still get eaten. i just don't buy anything full price anymore. it's just too upsetting when it winds up eaten :(

we have that wallpaper in our dining room and kitchen! it's a couple years old now and starting to peel. protect your corners and seams. it's sort of fragile stuff; lovely, but fragile.

my kids and i watched this episode and all agreed it was not for us. too much of everything (which is so for just about every "designer" on hgtv.

i did that and much more when my ex finally left. smudge, clean, paint, purge, rearrange, throw a party. do it all. over the years, when i've come across some random thing left over from that previous life, i dispose of it as quickly as possible.

frozen alexia yukon golds. so easy! add what you like to them or leave them as is.
some call it lazy. i call it smart(!); especially with potato allergies in the fam. the steam and possible cross contamination that could cause someone to have an anaphylactic reaction isn't worth the homemade bragging rights.
