So lovely. I really appreciate the care and collaboration that L.A. officials and organizations take in trying to address their homeless issues. What a great place to start a new life and feel a sense of respect in doing so.

So funny - I just came across Flora Grubb's (SF-based) Valentine's options with a wonderful selection of air plants and terrariums: http://floragrubb.com/shop/index.php. I would take one of these over a dozen roses ANY DAY.

First off - I want to commend abcoabq for being willing to share their struggle and the reminder that something that seems unbelievable to many is the reality for some.

To take this to a much more philosophical level, while the majority of people may not have a hoarding issue in their own home - think of the global hoarding issue we have as a whole! The amount of stuff we produce, and our habit of simply throwing things away (which in the case of hoarding is considered a good thing) is creating a major problem for our planet! Perhaps we can all learn something from hoarders - not to keep what should be thrown away, but to realize how little we really need in the first place, and how much senseless waste there really is.

I love the embroidered one! I don't mind having clocks that are more art pieces than function - but I do think it's necessary to have at least a couple that you can rely on for a quick time check. eConsciousmarket.com offers a neat LED one here: http://worldofgood.ebay.com/Areaware-Numbers-LED-Clock-Yellow/250379894668/item, and BuyGreen.com has some beautiful recycled record clocks that would work well in a modern, latin or India-inspired setting: http://worldofgood.ebay.com/Mandala-Record-Clocks-Designs-Palace-Royal-Blue/270406966517/item.

I love the kanga pillows! A good reminder that busy fabric can be used in very simple ways with maximum impact.

I'm with PhoebeArt - I'd start a new collection with his letter well, and showcase them together. Think how sweet it would be down the road in a nursery to put them up with some of your own baby pictures :) Either way - I don't think just because you're cohabitating your collection should be resigned to a box!

I love this - it's such a great reminder to really max out ideas when coming across things that seemingly have no purpose, but just can't be called "trash." Great idea.
