OK, so we (ie my husband) finally assembled 2 of the tall dressers (3 drawers on the bottom, doors on top, a mix of birch and white) and it was truly a project. Because it's modular, there were literally about 12 different boxes/packages in our living room. But he did say that they are much more impressive items than the usual IKEA he's put together. Very roomy and takes up only a corner of the room.

We are going to be putting together a couple of these babies tonight for our girls'. I love the idea of so much storage in such a small area, especially when they share a room. They are available at the IKEA in East Palo Alto CA.

We were just talking about needing a wheelbarrow this morning!

I really like the colander/hanger hanging basket! Crocs, no.

I rally like the kitchen/dining space. Did you paint the ceiling fan yourself?

I. Love. This. I would say my favorite so far. That country, retro vibe, the bright little pops of color, the big porch, the huge yard. I want it.

BambiJo - I have an Alice too, and I was surprised to see it so high up the list! My other girl is Madeline, on the list but way further down.

I have a kiddo-friendly craft table in our office. I have the hardest time keeping it organized though!

I use the Trader Joe's natural stuff ("Cleanliness is next to godliness" or something) for everything - dishwasher, laundry, and spray. It does the job for me. Otherwise I use vinegar and water.

I love the look of shutters. I would love to add some to my house some day. I would think they wouldn't be such a pain to wipe down as taking down curtains to wash.

We just bought a house in the bay area last year, which I didn't think we would ever be able to do ...but only with the price of housing bottoming out, good credit, an FHA loan, a loan from my mom, and 2 incomes. Growing up in SF, we always rented, so it's a weird feeling to OWN something. I totally get the feeling of wanting to cry about ever owning a home!

I've been wanting a salt pig or the like for a while now. I fear of using an open bowl because of dust or splatters, and a sugar bowl might confuse guests. I love the ceramic ones with hinged lids.

This reminds me a bit on my kitchen, layout-wise (it's from 1946). I've been mulling over where to put an island and shelves, and this has helped me visualize it!

That is just fabulous and inspirational! Love the paint color and how it coordinates with your duvet.

We recently bought a home in September, and there happened to be 3 rolls of paper towels in the kitchen. I think I am on roll #2. It's pretty luxurious to use them. Otherwise I use cloths, and I definitely have a "hierarchy" to them as well.

I was really wanting a countertop bin for scraps, but didn't want to spend $40 on one. I found a small stainless ice bucket with tight-fitting lid at Ross for about $15 which works fine. I need to empty it about every 2 days.
