I love this door! I agree that wall would look amazing gold and make the white/wood pattern really pop, but I think it looks great as is. I would also love to see the rest of your place, your blog is awesome and your wallpapered closet is fabulous!

The urban outfitters rug is actually only $89 in the 5x7, $199 for the 8x10 :)

I personally think the staggered is more interesting, but the tile is lovely and I think either way will turn out beautiful :)

@EebIsMe - I use the pyrex glass containers and once they are completely dry, I go ahead and put the lids on and stack them that way. I never have to search for the right lid because its already with its container. Anyway, I found that I had the same issue with stacking glass, so that was my solution :) **Note: If the containers are not dry, they have the potential to get stinky**

Be wary of the Something Store. I thought this was a brilliant idea, so I ordered a few "somethings" for the Christmas gift exchanges I'm attending this year. My paypal payment went through just fine, but a week later I still have no order confirmation or shipping notification from the Something Store acknowledging my's now just shy of two weeks and no chance of having it before Christmas at this point, so I broke down and filed a dispute with paypal. Just wanted to share in case any of you find yourself in the same boat...Or had a good experience and maybe I was an isolated incident?

I love the "You ever drunk baileys from a shoe" eye test poster! That is awesome! Great tour also! You did a brilliant job writing "thankful" on your board, so pretty!

I have no idea what they are called, but my mother makes dates stuffed with water chestnuts and wrapped in bacon then broiled. She says it's something my grandmother would make for parties in the 60's. Anyone else heard of this?

Ooh, I think in this instance the cost of the chair should include how many you need around the table. Even if you go bare minimum with 4, it's still more than $2,500!! Pretty though, very pretty.

I believe that is exactly what she did. The yellow, if I read correctly, is the same as before. She just added white stripes to break it up.

Looks great, by the way!

Haha Shiverness, we are on the same page! Cute poster though. My husband and I received a set of beer glasses as a gift (5 different kinds) and of course we threw the box maybe now we can figure out which beer goes in which glass.
