i grew up w/ live trees and love the smell..
we always went to the tree farm to ride wagon and cut it down ourselves :)
this year will be a fake tree as the kitty loves to drink the water and the tree dries out too soon.
i love the idea of a live wreath to have the smell.

on the note the fake trees last for 20 years.. that tree will be looking mighty pretty by then i imagine.

I did not know you can get all ben colors in the aura paint.
(the ones they have have on display seemed to have a rather dirty looking tint to them.

I had good luck when i used them for my move coming from a 4th floor brownstone.
(can i mention it was hot as hell and the guys were sweating like crazy. these fella's sworked hard)
i moved my artwork and really fragile things myself w/ a car owning friend.
I packed everything on my own.
nothing was broken except i did have a scratch on the wall of the new place but not a biggie as i have a long vintage couch.
they were not the cheapest but it was the best money i ever spent. i was all rested to start unpacking right away.

what a great catalogue--
Is it just me or why do all the US catalogues not seem to be as cool?

Home depot has different finishes.
"soft white" gives more like a traditional light effect.

this was a martha suggestion a number of years ago.
for wrapping paper---asian language newspaper works really well. (can usually find it for free and then we are re-using instead of buying new)
it gives a real graphic look and there are usually fun pictures if you want some color or pizazz.

actually i have this same chair i found on the street.
mine was painted black but underneath was a very pale yellow. I am jealous you have the whole set.
mine had the cushion which had a wood base and the ever lovely brown vinyl w/ piping on it.
I use it for inside to have an orange/brown oxford type fabric w/ leather piping.
the contrast piping adds a nice pop.
