i think the dying flowers references are directed at the first gift idea - the flowers in the vase next to the kissing couple photo are limp-necked and half dead. i don't think they are referring to the succulent-laden turtle. love the kitty huis - wish it was available in the US - so adorable and i want one for my cat!

Before & After: Old Chair, New Material

i like it - looks very cool! but how could you cover up that original beautiful wood? :)
my cat would also adore scratching on this. You should create unique and beautiful cardboard scratching pieces for cats. i would love something a little more stylish than the cardboard wedges i currently have for kitty.

beautiful chair! like the others before me, i'd post both photos and let the buyer decide. i could see owning both the original and the new cushions and switching them out according to the season or my mood. good luck with the sale!

a outdoor courtyard in the middle of the house with plants and tables and fruit trees and nooks to hang out in. a giant room with workout equipment including a full-sized trampoline. a heated indoor pool with hot tub and tons of lounge chairs around it - like a hotel pool where friends could hang out all year round. probably should be a showering area and steam room nearby. a lovely english garden (with gardener) out back. a music room with a concert grand piano and lots of different instruments to have impromptu jam sessions. tennis court would be awesome. i could gone on and on. guess i should start buying lottery tickets!

you two are adorable, your dog is adorable, and i love the serenity of this room. what is name/maker of the blue paint? so curious why the photos show only one half of the room - i am DYING to see the other side with the windows and view that you mention!

this is wonderful. like northstory, i love the combo of white and wood - natural, soothing, yum. even better with a little bit of plant life thrown in. i'm curious what's in the corner with the folding wooden chair - is there a bookshelf back there, or a shelf or just a hanging spider plant? thank you for sharing this little slice of heaven.

i love this transformation! the before kitchen feels suffocating, but when i look at the after, i breath a sigh of relief - spacious, sleek, unique, beautiful. and i just checked out the rest of your house - this kitchen fits perfectly with your aesthetic. i love the back story, too, as i've lived in my house for many years without a functioning kitchen while i decide what to do with it. there's hope! though i wish i had your nerve to just up and start renovating! nice job - love the freestanding wooden cabinet. gads - can't believe that "no upper cabinets" could create such an uproar - not sure why people can't appreciate others' different approaches to style even if the choices are not something they would choose to do in their own spaces. thanks for sharing!
