"Renata sent us a website where all of these posters are displayed." Where would that be? or did I just miss it?

What I would love to see, besides a set of pans that does *not* have nonstick coating on *any* of the pans, is a stamp on the bottom with what size the pan is. I always forget in the middle of a recipe and have to go find a ruler. Surely I'm not the only fool with this problem!

I also agree with many already-posted commens, especially the helper handles, the oven-safe-ness, the detachable handles, and the pouring lips. My only concern with universal lids is that you usually get just one or two lids for all of your pans, and then you (well, maybe it's just me) end up having to improvise with mixing bowls and whatnot when you're using more than two pans.

Somewhere in the depths of Etsy (sorry for the vagueness but the site is being troublesome for me right now) is a pin seller who also sells "storyboards" for them. They're like flat picture frames with little holes for the pins, and they come in various sizes and in black or white. That could look really neat if it fits your decor.

The Arizona residence... that glossy white table by the chair... what is it and where is it available?

I'm surprised that there are so many negative comments. Maybe it's because I didn't live through most of the 1970s, but this looks like a great textured addition to the otherwise-sleek bedroom of my dreams. Especially with West Elm's little snail decoration. (Which last is just a dream, because my cats would destroy it.)

My university department got the cheapest sofa they make for the student lounge. It sees a lot of use and it's going strong.

I *want.*

The shelves. Not necessarily to move to Boston. Had enough trouble with the non-gridded section of Toronto.

Are the feathers actually woven into the fabric? If so, how do you avoid getting pricked by the pointy end? It sure is gorgeous, though.

Find out where they're coming from (probably under your sink and/or the bathroom, since they love dark wet places). You may find they're coming in and out through tiny, tiny cracks in the flooring or wall. Grab some caulk and seal everything. Use more than you think you're going to need, since silverfish can get through remarkably small spaces. Within about two weeks you should at least see a drastically reduced number of them.

Borax is indeed safe and useful, but my veterinarian recommends against using it around dogs or cats, so we went with the caulk-everything-in-sight route.

Good luck!

I also have this chair; when I bought it at Pier 1, it was available in a light honey brown and a slightly darker chestnut. They were still available the last time I checked, but that's been a few months now.

So *that's* why my mother never let me join the Girl Guides (Canadian version of Girl Scouts, for anyone who might not know).

I've seen toilet-lid carpet but never tank carpet. Yoiks.

I'd like them more if they weren't "disposable once the battery runs out."
