Your local nursery should have them. Or Ikea for that matter, which is where I found mind. $14.99

Cute! I have an old dining set with these chairs as my 'in-between' but I have a hard time imagining them looking anything but.. well.. what they look like! This gives me a bit of hope for the chairs anyway. I think the table is a lost cause.

Also, am I the only person who finds them comfortable? I use one as my desk chair and find it helps me keep posture while studying.

It's a Fiddle Leaf Fig and weirdly enough Ikea is selling them right now; I picked one up last week after falling in love with them on AT too!

I found switching to a coffee creamer version of soy milk was the best solution and it was much creamier and had less metallic mouth feel which is something I get when I add just soy or almond milk to the coffee.

As someone posted above, Silk makes a coffee creamer and I think they even come in flavours now though I prefer the original. There are also the coconut milk versions now as well and none of them will have that curdling action.

I would love to switch to more of a whole food (the ingredient list is terrible) but have yet to find anything that makes my coffee hit that yum spot - definitely not a black coffee drinker here!

I'm near Vancouver BC so I have a pretty good selection of farmer's markets each week and I can usually hit 2-3 good ones depending on my work schedule. Occasionally the produce might be a buck more expensive than my regular produce shop (which is cheaper than the grocery stores to begin with) but the quality is usually higher and selection better.

Sometimes I just look for fun items to supplement what I already have or stock up on whatever is bountiful and in season. Non-produce-wise; local honey is a must for us and meat for the omnivore of the house. Also, we usually cant get away without a treat from a pastry tent and I'm a sucker for flowers which are always cheaper and more beautiful from the markets.

I know BC has had a surge in people going out to support their local farmer's this year and thus our markets are thriving and have grown a lot in the last few years. Ultimately, it's a lovely way to combine shopping local, supporting our community and having a fun hour out so I think we're lucky to have the opportunity to buy from local farmers. Especially as condo dwellers where the strata has banned balcony food gardens.

Kale chips. We can go through 3-4 bunches of kale in a week for a two person household this way. lol

My question is - was the mirror glued onto the wall and if so, how did you remove it? We've got a new vanity ready to go in while we're contemplating our plan of attack to get that sucker out of there!
