Classy dinner in Bryce Hudson's studio. '60s doorknob decor from one of the homes in Maegan's neighborhood. AW! SO SWEET! A rock garden by Celeste. I want to put on my snowsuit and jump into Carey Trudeau's playhouse! Clicky Liiiiiiiinks You guys love your non-permanent wall coloring solutions. How's about a removable, paintable wallpaper?

Reply All the rocks in the rock garden border, as well as the larger one in the center, are heart shaped! So sweet! 1 agrees Reply Hey! I just moved to Bernal Heights (from Minnesota) a couple of weeks ago and I saw that lost sock board while out on a walk. Awesome. Also, if my herbs actually grow, I am totally going to get a "WOOHOO!" sign. 1 agrees Reply I really love the art on the wall in de 'classy dinner'pic. Wonder where they got it… Reply I have a "Keep Calm and Eat A Cupcake" print as well but it has not been put up as of yet. I'm looking for the right frame to coordinate it with the "Cheese" one. Reply I kind of want to make the sock exchange for my home. 1 agrees Reply i'm totally making a sock exchange for my laundry, i forever find socks and i'm like, "i know i saw the other one yesterday, where is it now?" Reply I actually made one of sorts: I have some shelves above my laundry machines, and I turned a basket into what I call a Socks Lonely Hearts Club – for all those socks that seem to lose their partners in the wash. Each time I do the laundry and end up with odd socks, I check the Socks Lonely Hearts Club for a partner. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
