No, the flag is a flag. Freedom represents freedom. You're putting YOUR opinion of it into it. To most other people, (American for several generations or not, family of vets or not, patriots of not) it reads as tacky and aggressive outside of a private home. For many people, that flag represents oppression, racism, classism, and yes, war.

Welcome Home: Housewarming Parties

I recently went to a friend's housewarming which was a great "game night/pizza night" theme-- I had fun with the exception that she had not 1 but TWO/ 2 registries, which I found rude and offensive. I want to warm your home with my hear, love and good- will not my wallet. I brought traditional flowers/wine.

But I look forward to a smaller place to clean (less cleaning!), living alone for the first time ever, and cooking/eating the exact things I want at the times I want them (and the huge/new bathroom, ain't bad either).

I will miss, most of all, my partner whom I am moving away from in order to go to professional school but also: the fixed up backyard, the crazy amounts of space, and the massive kitchen.

Huh? You sound bitter and self- conscious. Neither of which makes sense for AT or this article. I'm the same height as you and find that retailers in the past 10 years have been great about longer inseams... Gap/ON/Joe Fresh/and yes, higher end brands too, with all offering discounts at some point. So confused by your post.

Things can be made in China and be of high quality and have fine labor practices. That said, this constitutes getting a refund. Call RH immediately and ask for one. If they are being difficult about it, your credit card (assuming you used a credit and not a debit card) will refund you. $250 is far too much money, on sheets no less, to not get exactly what you were led to believe you ordered.

"An AfricN figure on a Russian plate." Captions like that make my skin crawl. Please stop contributing To the ignorance by referring to the continent of Africa as this huge, amorphous anomaly. You couldn't find out where the piece might be from-- not even the region? Then juxtaposed it not with "European plate" which would make less sense but be more fitting but juxtaposed it with "Russia" which is pretty specifically a country, Ugh.

I would venture to say that renters rarely are able to take on huge, costly projects (due to lease agreements and space limitations)-- makes sense why this is more geared toward homeowners. Unless... you've recently replaced the garage doors on your rental.
