We do this in our back yard several times a summer and October for a kids Halloween party. Bug spray and a firepit (smores too) help with the bugs. Our favorite part are the fireflies, frogs, bats and other night critters while watching a screen. Even have had a few shooting stars. I wanted a large screen and just use the biggest painters canvas dropcloth from box hardware store. We get hay bales for the Halloween party for seating for the 30+ kids in costumes.

My wife and I are Texans and wanted to add some Lone Star heritage to our home in Connecticut and settled on a reproduction flag, not as overtly Texan as some but still with meaning us

While I have always wanted one of these, I finally sat in one and found it disappointing as it is not made for tall people, the back only came to the middle of my back.

We have the storytime rocker and the DWR Risom. Both are great! don't pay full price for the storytime it is always on sale somewhere with free shipping. The Risom is at the DWR outlet for 40% off!

it looks like a few of the black and white hex tiles are off pattern. That would drive me crazy. But very nice.

we have a chesterfield sofa from their older line, very comfortable and the fabric is amazingly childproof. I enjoy the "unique" gifts in the holiday catalog, but that is about it now.

Comments are helpful in the Reader Questions, or for sourcing purposes, but in general I don't find them interesting whether positive or negative. They do however make it a pain when trying to sift through to get to the helpful comments. Maybe the editors could ad that "Hot or Not Vote" to posts for those who feel they MUST share their judgement.

I am a big fan of unique fall fruits, but I would have an overwhelming urge to drop one (o.k. several at once) over the side just to watch it splat.
