DISGUSTING!! I hate these things with every fiber of my being!! I too had an incident in the shower with these creatures of SATAN. I was 7 mos pregnant, innocently taking a shower when one RAN ACROSS THE SHOWER CURTAIN. It was awful. I screamed bloody murder and ran out of that shower so fast. My husband went in with a tissue and grabbed it, but the front part broke off from the back part and kept on running. UGH. The. worst.

My favorite tour in a while! I totally agree that fresh flowers are a must-have luxury.

I think it can probably be done in good taste...it just reminds me of when I was in college. My friends and I would decorate with pretty alcohol bottles! LOL! You do what you can with what you have I guess...

There's an important distinction here for me. We all have that friend who is constantly buying those crappy toys for their kids that are played with for an hour and then thrown onto a mountain of toys that the child will never touch again!! Ugh, that drives me crazy. My parents were not the type to indulge us in that way. We got toys pretty much only for birthdays and Christmas but they were nice toys. American Girl Dolls, Playmobile Doll houses, books, art supplies. Most of these things I've kept to this day!! My parents weren't super wealthy but I think they figured they saved money by not buying us tons of cheap toys and could justify by a few nice toys that would last forever......

I'm surprised that you're really the first one to make this point....and I agree with you.

I loved this. What a treat! My fave has to be the room that hasn't been touched since the 1930's.....talk about a time warp!! The attic was also amazing!

My mother had gorgeous impatiens beds in our yard in Illinois. Lush and colorful. They bloomed all summer. Now that I'm a grown up and want a beautiful yard like my mother had, I planted impatiens in my yard in Utah. I've been very disappointed. Yes, they were in the shade. Yes, I watered them enough...they just didn't ever get all lush and full like my mothers. I called her and she said out of all the places we lived, Illinois was the only place they grew really well. So I will pin this article and hopefully have better luck next year! AND if I ever move to Illinois I'm planting Impatiens everywhere because they really were gorgeous. Great post.

Great ideas! Except for the eggs. Smelly eggs....in the car. Might be unpleasant.

I love this house. LOVE it. My favorite home tour in a long time. I wish my husband would let me get a fancy Marie Antoinette couch like that! That's what I envisioned for my living room. Instead we ended up with a man cave couch with built in cup holders, so............ya. Anyone know where the cuckoo clock is from??
