you can totally do this without the expensive light-sensitive paper. growing up we just used construction paper in a window (we used dark blue) and it worked great, but the colors were inverted (dark blue under the object, light where the sun hit).

for those asking about the sofa in the initial pic, it does look like the corona (which i have had for 3 years and LOVE for the pricepoint). it is discontinued but the clare looks exactly the same with what looks like a slightly different fabric texture. its on sale now for under $800, and under $600 for select colors:

key limes are pretty small so you won't get too much juice out of 9 of them... I vote candying them

love this type of paint. i picked up something similar (copper) a few years back at the art/craft store. its one bottle of metalic paint, then you paint a coat of 'activator' over the top which oxidizes the metal. very cool.

a tsp or so of anchovy paste, and tomato paste is all you need to get that added depth you're missing - chicken stock or boullion cubes, garlic, and onion are all excellent additions too. good luck!

I'd check the ingredients to be positive, but I think smoked almonds would be a good veg substitute to sub in for the bacon and the pecans

SkyMall was the inspiration of the best received xmas gift for my dad two years ago - a solar powered clamp on grill light. saw it in SkyMall and then googled to find one for a great price.

please post an update with reveal! so cool, and hope the stripper suggestion works. i've used Peel Away on wood with amazing results (minimal smell, super easy to remove 5 coats of old paint) and went with a plastic scraper and rough bristle toothbrush.

what about bleach? when i was younger there was a holiday craft project where we would strip the metallic paint from the insides of round christmas ornaments and then fill them with mini snowmen, glitter, etc. i'd imagine you could give the same treatment to your lamp.

to all the tube polenta people out there - honestly, skip it. it really doesn't take much longer to make polenta from scratch (look for cornmeal or even yellow grits if you aren't finding polenta in grain form at your supermarket).

i've tried the tube polenta and while it is good if you want to fry up some firm cubes of polenta, the real polenta flavor is not there. if you are trying to re cream-ify it, don't, you'll be disappointed! the real deal is the tastiest, and honestly is pretty hard to mess up!
