I have a duplex apartment with a garden. Some seeds are easier to grow than others-- morning glories and nasturtiums, for instance. Sunflowers are also easy. I would like to know if the foxgloves were cultivated in seed pots before being planted in the garden? I find that more delicate seeds are difficult to establish and die pretty easily, even if using seed pots. I would love to hear others' suggestions for easy to grow seedlings.

where are all the cords and the outlets to provide the electricity needed? And how did she hide them? I see an xbox and cable box and speakers, but no cords-- except for a couple coming out of the TV.

Agreed! Do a post about bed bugs and used upholstered furniture. It would be interesting to know if any AT readers have experienced a problem.

Putting a laptop (without its power cord!) on a table doesn't make a space an office! I wish there was a post that featured photos of real offices, with phones, printers, and all the other stuff that can't be tucked out of sight.

Two things make WFH difficult for me: the temptation to do home-related stuff during work hours (laundry, pay bills, etc.) and the internet. The latter, I assume, is also a problem for people in offices-- but probably there is less temptation to surf because coworkers can see you.... Does anyone have any tips for how they stop themselves from surfing away precious periods of time? I sometimes turn the wireless off, but I usually need it on for work-related research.

I just painted my hallway with RL's cove point-- an off-white recommended by AT. It looks great! It reminds me of clean sand.

I am in the process of choosing a new sofa to replace the Andre I bought from R&B. The buttons on the sofa back fell apart almost immediately. First the fabric covers fell off, then the buttons themselves. That said, R&B has offered to replace the sofa with any style I choose.

Those beds cannot have been designed for a nursery. They violate federal child-safety standards.

I own the andre and, unfortunately, within weeks of having its arrival, the fabric came off the buttons and some of the buttons broke in half.. However, I am happy to report that R&B was great about it. They have agreed to let me exchange the sofa for another one-- and since I did not want a repeat experience of the Andre button fiasco, I chose a different model. However, it is true that the fabric selection is problematic right now due to the loss of a major producer.

I was wondering what the AT community knew about the potential for bed bugs to have infested used upholstered furniture. Are the chances high? Slim? I have been hesitant to buy anything used since readings about the risks.
