I remember reading a copy of Erma Bombeck's "If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What am I Doing in the Pits?" when I was about 12 (weird kid, I know.)

The only thing I remember from the silly book is this:

"He says up, I say down,
it's becoming quite an issue
On which is the more proper way
To hang the bathroom tissue."

What do they mean that there's enough for "two pairs of shelves"? Does one order not cover the back of a Billy?

Ohhhhh I've been coveting those Serafina shades for so long. They are *exactly* what I'm looking for and nothing else has come close. I wish they'd go on sale!

I guess I'm not much help, eh? Good luck!

I still like to use mine the old-fashioned way-- for holding garlic bulbs and onions and such. Has that gone out of style?

Planning on framing some of the pages is what I meant.

I didn't realize it was a trend. I just bought a copy in Barnes and Noble for ten bucks, planning on framing some of the prints. I thought I was being a bit creative, but now I kind of feel like a tool! I'll still frame the prints, though. And I love that pillow.

I have to second the Moonbeam clock. I'm a huge fan!

Benjamin Moore's "Avocado". I have never received so many compliments on a paint color, especially in the kitchen (and I have cabinets very similar to yours.) Good luck!

I have not been receiving the emails lately, either.

By "real wood", do you mean the IKEA is an engineered hardwood? I recently bought a house and installed Pergo brand flooring, but it's not laminate. It's engineered hardwood, meaning instead of a photo of wood on plastic as the top layer, it's a very thin slice of real wood veneer. The floors look awesome, but I can't yet comment on how well they wear since they've only been down for a week and a half so far.

Also, I got the Pergo ("Living Floors" or something like that) hardwood on Lumber Liquidators for $1.99/sq. ft.. I say go for the IKEA if it's "real" (engineered) hardwood. It just looks so much more natural than the original plastic/laminate Pergo.

I like the brick, especially with 1950's furniture. I vote "no" on doing anything major to change it and "yes" on the idea of a bamboo or sisal rug.

I was going to try to use chalkboard paint, but these are much better!
