In the past we have offered unfortunately uncomfortable house space to guests. Maybe it is because we and most of our guests come from the comparatively gracious spaces of southern homes, but the sleeper sofa in the living room of our 1 bedroom condo in NOVA has always felt like an awkward solution. We are in the process of moving, and space to host overnight visitors was a priority in our new home search. We never were able to make ourselves say no (even when one of my husbands friends camped out in our living room for a week, sleeping until 11 am!. . .That nearly did it, but not quite), so after 10 years we have shifted some priorities and gotten a second bedroom.
Overnight Guests: Can You Just Say No? Reading My Tea Leaves

I have an "alfresco dinner/emergency power outage" metal bucket containing 15 or so small candles in mason jars, a box of extra candles, and a plastic container of matches. It came in super handy when we used to have a weekly, rooftop dinner for 10, but it hasn't seen much use lately. We don't have a single decorative or scented candle. . .though the Sydney Hale co. is causing me to reconsider that of late.

I don't have an animal to walk, but I just had to say that I love, love that puppy's face! So stinkin' cute :)

love you fabric selections, and your honest assessment/pictures of the Cure. If you are worried about the stripes looking too business like, why not use them as a fun piping? Alternately, use them as the main fabric, but pick one of the colors therein and do a large-scale, solid piping in that color for a slightly less formal feel.
