@crazydoglady - Thanks! I don't get that much light in the bedroom, but I'm hoping for a cozy feeling.

@hunted - Thanks for the much appreciated input. I was also considering doing the trim in something other than white. What color did you use?

I'm painting my bedroom navy (Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy) in the next week. It's the first time I'll have dark walls and I'm a bit nervous. I've already bought the paint so here goes...

That's really nice except for the text... What pre-schoolers would (or could) write that? Hmmm...

A true story...

Phone call number one
Me: I'm RSVPing to attend Z's bridal shower. Does she has a registry?
Sister of Z: No, registries are tacky.

Phone call number two
Me: As you know Z has particular tastes and I'm having a hard time finding the right gift. I want to make sure I get Z something she wants. Has she started a registry?
Sister of Z: No, registries are tacky.

Phone call number three
Me: OK, I've thought long and hard and I want to make Z a huge floral arrangement. I'll make it so it's a labor of love.
Sister of Z: That's tacky.
Me: Hmmm, I'm starting to think that word is highly subjective.

You put together a piece of furniture without instructions while staying up late to watch Wrath of Khan? Are you my lost twin sister?

I have to say I love it. As a WWII buff, I read it as more of an homage.

Having studied a lot of military history, including personal letters home, I've developed a heightened sense of the horrors of war without personally experiencing it. Weapons and a yearning for home is an enormous part of what troops live with everyday. So while I don't see it as sickening and definitely not playful, I'm really drawn to it.

Likely that's why I want to and do see it as an homage.

I have a skylight and I love it, of course. I feel I deserve it since the bathroom (and apartment) is really small and I'm on the top floor of an old walk-up building.

Funny enough Hilda has a photo book she sells through her blog. It's of... NYC.

While I'm not a fan of books organized by color, all the Harry Potter books are together and in sequential order... and that's good enough for me.

I love the secret door!

The building with the glass balconies... isn't that on Centre Market Place? Like right by Built by Wendy?

I hang my hair dryer from an "S" hook on a rod. The ribbon looks pretty but the "S" hook is less fussy.

"Guess who this is" for number 4 only works well if your group is racially homogeneous. Take it from someone who would have liked to fully participate in this game at a gathering, but everyone knew which photo was mine with no guessing whatsoever.
