The dentist across the street who handed out toothbrushes with his name on them was by FAR cancelled out by the house down the street that set up tables and tables of doughnuts and hot apple cider. (this was obviously pre-candy tampering era!) But my biggest thrill was going to the house of the couple who resembled Mr. and Mrs Claus. It was so delightful to imagine Santa and his wife celebrating a different holiday along with us mere mortals!

I'm all for saying things out loud! I learned this from an old boyfriend who always used to say it when he locked up his car. At first I thought he was nuts, but it has saved me many times from returning to my workplace to ensure I've locked up for the night! Apparently I'm more convinced by a memory of saying aloud that I did something, than a memory of the actions.

I always used to buy brand new sheets after a break up. When I got dumped this past summer I did that among other 'nesting' things. Finally finished decorating the master bedroom of the house I bought FIVE years ago...AND hanging artwork. Maybe I'd been 'waiting' to see if I'd be doing these things with someone else eventually....but now that I've truly 'moved in' I feel more settled in my own skin - even if I AM single in a tough dating world!

Wow K T G....bitter much? Yeah, there's a ton of stuff out there that one could 'go renegade' with....but that's not the point! The point it....someONE thought if it, someONE did something with it....and if I like the design I by all means want to support THAT person for their effort in adding something I consider beautiful to the world! And it's not as if monkeypowered just printed out a single word in times roman and called it a day. The gorgeous curves that emanate from the letters speak of striving and growth. I see tendrils and roots that for me embody the positive enegry that comes from 'trying.' Trite? Maybe, but I'll take that over grousing anyday!!!

I just got 2 Sleepy Hollow floating nightstands from CB2. Roughly the same dimensions as the first pic with a flip-down door. They come in bamboo or black. Love them!!!

Tse Moana : you may have a TP holder with hidden hardware. Look on the bottom side of the two 'arms' that hold the paper spindle. If there is a hole in each of them, they likely have a 'set screw' which can be loosened with the appropriately sized allen wrench. Once loose, you can remove the 'arms' which should reveal any screws and hardware attached to the wall. Good Luck!

Baaaaad Feng Shui to have all that hanging above your bed. And I'm with 'lightspeed' on the serene bedroom thing. I once tried a golden yellow on my walls and it only lasted two days, because I could FEEL the noise it created - even with my eyes closed!
