I recommend Big House's 3L "Premium Wine Casks" in a big way. All of their wines are quite good. Reasons listed on the Big House website for drinking by the box: Freshness, value (4 bottles for about half the price. SRP $22/3L, while SRP $9.99/750mL.), ease of transport, and ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING: "By choosing this 3L cask versus 4 glass bottles, one can reduce packaging waste by at least 92% and carbon emissions by 55%." By the box they have Big House Red, Big House White, Unchained “Naked” Chardonnay, The Usual Suspect Cabernet Sauvignon, Cardinal Zin Beastly Old Vines, and The Birdman Pinot Grigio. (No, I don't work for them but I kinda wish I did.)

Not all TVs are ugly! Bang & Olufsen's Beoplay V1 is expensive but it's like having a beautiful piece of furniture. It comes in 32" or 40", in black or white, and has several stand options. This is not sponsored, I have one. I bit the bullet because I live in a small space and only have one TV. http://www.beoplay.com/products/beoplayv1

I love the Bosch white-on-stainless range but Bosch discontinued it in the US. I was over stainless long ago and went to Viking as soon as they came out with all their colors. I had to spend a lot for them and I can't say it was worth it. I've renovated two kitchens since and I'm back to stainless (got tired of the Viking color I'd chosen!) but only because I couldn't get that white Bosch.

You're really lucky. The only comments my MIL has ever made about the three older homes my husband and I painstakingly renovated over years is that they're "too small" and "why did you buy this?" When I visit her two McMansions I wish I had the nerve to say "wow, look at all the wasted space!"

Where did you get the big shade for the floor lamp? Love it and I'm not having any luck finding similar. Thanks.
