I'd like to nominate the charming and tiny Beaver Island MI, which is about an hour past Charlevoix MI by ferry. They only have one gas station! You can rent movies at the grocery store!

My boyfriend and I also used a singular Platta tile in our bathroom to make the cheapie version of a wooden slat bathmat. To insure the floor doesn't get too wet we cut a real bathmat down to size and put it below the tile.

I've never had a magazine close on me before - do you think they WILL send us another mag, or just refund?

This is so tragic. I don't know if I'll ever recover!

I very much agree with the choice of the fruit cobbler post! I made this over the summer and it was a huge hit!

These probably would only work with an all white tea/coffee service... or hung on a white wall. They're so heavy and dark that any other color might just push them over the edge. But I love the illustrations!

Yessss, Ann Arbor! My hometown, oh how I miss it. This looks like the home of an Ann Arborite if I've ever seen one. The hardwood floors are so pretty.

Apartment Therapy Chicago | CHI Good Questions: Paint this Woodwork White and Replacing Closet Doors with Curtains?

I think the problem is that the wood of the walls and the wood of the floor don't go very well together - it's making the room look smaller than it probably is. So maybe either paint the walls white (here's an example of white walls with a similar color floor: http://www.designspongeonline.com/2008/03/sneak-peek-basic-french.html)

OR, keep the walls that lovely color wood and change the floor? I'm not sure what you'd use for them, but it's an idea.

There are so many things I'd love to bake... but with chocolate I'd like to try something different than a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. Maybe these chocolate griddle cakes?

I love earl grey tea cookies! I made them awhile back and they were perfect and delicious - although not for those looking for a classicly sweet cookie. Perfect with (gasp) tea, or even coffee.

Being the owner of a rather small bedroom, I take advantage of my suitcases and keep any out of season clothing in them. They fit right under my bed for perfectly handy storage!
