I love the idea of making things pretty just for their own sake. Feel sad for people who can only have functional things in their spaces. To each her own, but it seems a soulless home to me. I love living in a carefully curated space. However never have thought of a tray vignette having the ability to stun... :D

Never understood this trend for yucky old pallets. They are cheap wood that will decay quickly and contain all kind of nasties that you'd bring into your home including termites and powder post beetles. Even this AT Post advises against it...

Pretentious and over designed. The bedroom especially is a train wreck! People get paid to do this?

Yes to Shawni's tip... almost.... :) Put the rinsed and cleaned beans into COLD water (about twice the depth of the beans) and bring it to a boil. Turn the heat off an let stand for one hour. It's called the quick soak method and is on most packages. Tossing this soak water will get rid of most of the enzymes that cause malodorous digestive effects of beans that some people experience. Don't overlook the salt comment. I don't add it until the beans are fully cooked. As for additives, the sky's the limit from aromatics to bacon. Play. They're never bad... We have beans at least once a week and I never plan ahead well enough soak them over night.

"Polka Dots" is the name of a specific pattern consisting of evenly sized, and evenly spaced, alternating rows of filled round circles. Just as all camels are not dromedaries, not all spots are Polka Dots. The Jacobs umbrella and freckled towel wear polka dot patterns. The spotted pillow and spotted jug do not. HST, I am a huge fan of both polka dots AND spots. Either would be delicious in a nursery...
