I don't know about delicate stuff, but I would highly recommend Healthy Choice Carpet Cleaners. John is the owner and he cleaned our non-delicate rugs, as well as our somewhat declicate couch upholstery. He was so freakin' nice and extremely affordable. AND it's totally non-chemical. He was awesome.
(100$ minimum, but you can get all kinds of stuff cleaned for that amount - we had 2 big rugs, a runner, 2 small rugs, a couch, and two chairs.)

This place was awesome! We stayed in a tent cabin - very cozy, super cute. Big enough for our pak-n-play for the toddler to sleep in. And right across Highway 1 from the beach! An awesome place for families.
I do feel kinda bad for the folks who had to listen to our toddler scream all night. But no one gave us dirty looks the next morning. Yeah!

I keep all my books. I love books. I love the idea of having a library and my kid growing up surrounded by books.
What I need help with is the junk drawer. Personally, I'm ok with it being overflowing with all kinds of odds and ends. That's the one place in our house that we let that kind of thing happen. But it drives my husband crazy. He wants EVERYTHING.IN.ITS.PLACE.
So I'm trying to figure out how to organize the junk drawer.

My husband and I started buying art a few years ago. He saw a painting he liked somewhere, found out the artist and where he shows, and we went to the gallery. The place was intimidating at first, but the owners were awesome! We have made it a priority to buy one piece of art per year. It's our Christmas/anniversery gift to ourselves. We're getting quite a little collection going!
We've bought several pieces through that gallery, and now the owners know us well enough that they call when something comes in they think we'll like or if they hear of a show we might be interested in.
