I really like all-white Christmas lights. It has a timeless charm that to me, evokes images of Colonial Christmastide. My mother has always done the white lights, with little faux candles in the windows...warm and cozy. Paired with a simple wreath and evergreen garland, it just seems to capture the essence of an old-world holiday.

What an awesome idea! I'm not 100% sold on the long, narrow shape, though; it would be very limiting in terms of space planning (there's really only one way you can place furniture that makes sense). I wonder how involved one can get with the colors, et cetera. I do love the barn/cottage/storage locker look to it... genre-bending.

Has anyone also heard of Yankee Barn Homes? They are another pre-fab company, with lovely post-and-beam houses that are about twice as expensive as Zamore. You will drool a little.

I used to think gin tasted like Pine Sol until I was introduced to the wonder that was G&T. My gin of choice: Tanqueray; although any top-shelf will do. I agree completely that lemon in a G&T is a joke and is usually the dead giveaway that your bartender... sucks.
