Re: duvets vs top sheets: I'd rather make the bed and wash my top sheet regularly than try to remove and wash the duvet cover as regularly.

I also can't get past the dangerous sleeping arrangements for this baby. Smothering, rolling over the side onto the floor...Otherwise quite cute, ha!

niabassett - that's just what I was thinking. what's the deal with having to live in the places you intend to sell? don't they have enough on their plates without having to move 7 children every year or so?

Our reception space was similarly rustic. We strung white paper lanterns above (the more, the better) and used yellow checked table cloths with bright bouquets on the tables. I think it complemented the dark wood really well.

I regret having purchased from Lighting by Gregory. All but one of my visits to the store - twice to shop for lights, once to purchase lights, once to pick up lights - were bad experiences. The other experience was just mediocre. Salespeople give brusque answers to questions; never fully answer the question; shrug their shoulders if they're not able to help. Just called them because there was an error in my order. I was made to feel that it was my own fault for not checking carefully enough before leaving the store. Now I'll probably wait another 3 weeks for what I ordered. How can I express my disgust? I'd rather buy lighting from a rotting corpse.

None, already looks lovely. Plus, adding another "statement" will rob the statement from the other lights!

Very cute! I think we have the same Ikea kitchen, too. Would you tell me the paint color (blue) in your office?

Haha. As a recently pregnant woman and part of an arguing couple, I guess I'm your stereotypical Ikea shopper.

We had a big argument over whether the Ikea "small space" was bigger or smaller than our small space...all the while, other shoppers were trying to take a peek at the space themselves.

From now on, we'll try to be more zen with the meatballs.

Funny, just saw an episode of Myles of Style with an eerily similar piece of wall art -- if bubbles could be eerie, that is.

I agree, minimalia! I was recently quoted over $1000 for two relatively small 1/4" thick sheets of their "hydrangea thatch" that I was going to use for cabinet doors. Instead, I purchased custom-cut clear sheets of acrylic and used some beautiful window film on them. Total price was approximately $100.

On another thread, I feel there's something wrong calling a product "green" when the price inaccessible for the average consumer.

Here's one from Poshtots I love called the "summer camp" bed. It's pricey though...
