These are all amazing spaces. But mine can never remain like this. The child just needs, it seems, a flat spot. These days the walk in closet has become her favorite place to draw and write. The table is always covered with paint, pencils, paper, and everything a child needs on a table. " We " clean up, but then, in the end, really, the beauty of the space is much less important in her life than the functionality.

I would really like to see some posts on AT , how places look when people really use them. Before clean ups ,and photo shoots.

Just made it tonight for my guests, and yes, I made it with Quinoa. They loved it. I did not have white wine vinegar. Just used regular white one. And, also threw in some garlic powder. MMMM.. Hope the leftover taste as good tomorrow.

I would love to have more recipes like this one. Easy to assemble, protein rich, with summer vegetables.

Our doctor actually advised against humidifiers for this reason only. Though our kid is allergic to dust mites, molds etc. What has helped is dust mite proof cover for the mattress.

I am burnt out too. We are Indians, so it started for us from October, then after a month long festivities, Halloween, and then the big move.

So, now, this holiday, since we are so tired, and so broke, we just have the smallest Christmas tree for the kid, a gingerbread man to decorate. Santa she says can bring whatever he wants.

I am just going to "hang", as they say in America, with my dearest and nearest.

Anyways, any suggestions for an outdoor shoe storage unit that is not plastic or metallic? We need one in our side yard where the rain can hit the area sometimes.


10 Tips on Making a Mini Makeshift Mudroom

I am one of those proponents. Can not understand dirty outside shoes that have been at every public bathroom stall, stepped on dog-poo, accidentally rubbed on a cigarette butt on my carpet where my kid is playing.
So, yes, I am a shoe-off proponent.

We grew up with the parents in the living room, and the kids in their own bedroom. We were from Delhi. To have a bed of our own is luxury enough, a room is sometimes a dream. But that was there, and now we are in USA. No judgment.

Next question.. since I am considering this.
How do we secure the closets to the ceiling in the bedroom video?

I have a trick for bugs. Take a bag of bouquet garni. Fill it up with some cloves, Whole red dried chilly pepper, and some whole Turmeric root. Store the bag inside your beans, rice etc. Age old Indian secret.

Yes, thousands of Marie Claires can become clutter, and some of those "people" magazines I can see being a problem. But I would hate to put books as the first thing to be seen as clutter.
Sometimes, when I walk in a reader's room, it reverberates with stories, history, and yes, new ideas.
It is the other kitschy item, that we bought on our many trips way before we learned better that I would like to see gone.

We use steel glasses that we get from India.
Something like this, http://www.amazon.com/4-Pack-of-12oz-Tumblers/dp/B0055F4SZ8/ref=pd_sbs_k_11
Frankly, when my kid turned four, we gave up the special kid glasses for her. We have a drawer below where we keep the left overs. She plays with them in her play kitchen.

You are inspiring indeed. This room makes me go ahead and take on the challenge. Seems like any child would be happy in this, as it would tell them how they are really wanted.
