Jonathan Adler Mrs. Godfrey Chair. I LOVE this chair. I cannot afford it.

POSTERHANGER at Textile Arts. This is 60 inches wide so you can use it to hang large pieces of fabric for decorations. I have some fabric hangers from CB2 that are, sniff, no longer available, but work really well to fill a large blank wall with something fairly inexpensive.

    I saw a similar dishrack on Making It Lovely a while ago. I’m not sure which I like better, green or white?

    Is it sad that I’m actually excited over a drying rack? haha…my mom would be proud

    Jennifer – I’ve seen that one, but sadly it’s too small for the number of dishes I handwash. The Dish Doctor is another option, but again too small for what I need and rather pricey.

    Jessica – No it’s not, and yes she would.

    I love the idea of painting stripes, but it will have to wait for one of the upstairs rooms. We have about 6 months of painting rooms to do (because I am uninclined to remove wallpaper and paint each evening), so I will have to bookmark that link for when we get around to it!

    Jonathan Adler breaks my heart sometimes with his awesomeness. Really only because I can’t afford it either. That’s all.

    Thanks for the link :)

    I just wanted to let you know that I’ve refined the fruit fly traps through much trial and error.

    We make now make them as above with fresh fruit as bait, but also add a spoonful of apple cider vinegar and a squeeze of dishsoap to the pot. This is even more gross (you end up with dead fruit fly soup at the bottom of your bowl) but even more effective.

    I do a shallow dish of apple cider vinegar with some dish soap, no saran wrap and no fruit (soap is to break the surface tension, in theory. mu brother says you don’t need it, but I stick with what’s worked.) I would argue that it is much much less gross, because they drown and don’t produce maggots. I always hated getting rid of the trap with the fruit and saran wrap because of the live flies and maggots.

    I have a very cold downstairs portion of my house that I use a lot, and right now I’m really enjoying my DeLonghi Safeheat radiator that I got at BB&B. It has a built-in timer, so my office is already warm when I start working (and it’s only $70 before coupons).

    I’ve used fan-style heaters up to now, but the forced air really dries my contacts out. Maybe that would be a plus in a bathroom, though.

    Good luck!
