I just bought 2 and it's actually solid wood. The shipping is ridiculous, though. It makes a great hamper and is bit bigger than the IKEA one (which I also like).

I recently had this same dilemma. I usually bring German friends hot sauces and other Mexican food items since their selection is really poor. A selection of dried chiles are especially good because they're light and easy to pack. I'll usually bring back unique booze or small household items.

Bring cash (or cashier's check) and put the deposit down on the spot. After seeing a place during the dot-com boom, I overheard one of the propsects put in an application and say he wanted the place. After he left, I gave them a cash deposit and pretty much stole it from him. Kinda sneaky but I was *desperate*.

Peach with struesel topping, in the summer. Pecan, otherwise.

I used to have a living room wall that color and I loved it.

AmyV, I have a similar sofa story except I was the recipient and we didn't want it We tried unsuccessfully for hours to get it out until we resorted to the Saws-All. It was too bad since it was in decent shape, but so unbelievably ugly.

I love it. It makes me dizzy when looking at it too closely but it's cool. And it reminds me of drizzled chocolate.

There are goats available all the time on craigslist (SF Bay area). So tempting...

It looks like there might be a false panel under the vanity that hides the plumbing. Must be where the towels are, also.

Fresh flowers from the garden, a tealight for, erm, bigger smells and a window cracked open (weather permitting).

I remember these when travelling around Korea when I was 8 but there was no porcelain. Being so little, I was always terrified that I'd lose my balance and fall in. It felt like the ground was opening up and I was straddling the depths of hell.

It's a cute space but there's something about that 3rd picture from overhead that makes me feel claustrophobic just looking at it.

Fabulous! Simple and practical. That first picture reminds me of 70's Tupperware, but I like that. Probably the avocado-ness of the color.

A friend's house was robbed via the doggy door. He has a medium sized dog and they must have gotten a small person or kid to crawl through and open the door. The prime suspects were the delivery guys that came a few days earlier.

I have to agree with tinychoices on that one. Besides, how often does one "wear out" light switch covers? They do look awfully nice, though.

The ice cream is amazing. I can't decide if ginger or cardamom is my fav. As for the grocery, I always loved going in there and smelling all the wonderful spices. That is, until I brought home a bag of coriander one day. Thankfully, I unpacked it onto the kitchen table instead of putting it directly in the cabinet. I noticed there seemed to be some movement and realized it was full of baby cockroaches! Horrifying, but I was mostly sad that I have to look elsewhere for Indian supplies. But it can't keep me away from the ice cream.

The lemongrass and bali plates look remarkably like ones I always see in Chinatown (and have always like alot). I wonder how they compare in person.
