Re: Rubberplant --- It does survive with low light levels, but gets really leggy. Move it outside during the summer to encourage bushier growth.

For a low-light, hard to kill plant, I love Mother in Law's Tongue, Sansevieria trifasciata. A not too spectacular specimen is actually in your last photo on the right, but it can look awesome and modern as well.

Knitting! I love to knit, but don't often have time---I've become sort of a seasonal knitter as a result and only turn out a couple of hats a year. I'd love to learn crochet. Amigurumi are adorable!

We tried it using a "City Kitty" training seat. We followed their instructions to the letter, taking it very slow and gradually, but no luck. Our cat decided the laundry pile was a better spot and refused to change her mind until we stopped with the potty training. Cat boxes=gross; Poo on our clothes=grosser.

My grandmother has a collection of small hobnail vases in a pretty light blue color. This white one is really cute and would look great with some bright wildflowers.

I would use this handy sweeper to follow after my crumb-creating cuties, a kid who thinks he's a train conductor and a pint-sized aspiring princess.
