My partner has just gotten into home brewing, and I am constantly tripping over empty glass bottles, utility buckets, glass carboys and plastic tubing! Anyone have any advice or tips on keeping the brewing supplies corralled, neat, and stored in a small space?
Have you guys noticed that lately everyone is OBSESSED with showing off how colorful their homes are? You know what I'm talking about — if I see one more photo of a super colorful living room or painted-against-the-lease-rules apartment, I actually might scream. Few design trends move to me the point of nausea (although octopi are getting close), but colorful living spaces might be it. Here are five reasons why you should go ahead and 86 all the color from your life and return your home to its intended state: beige.
I'd never turn my back on this Boo apron. Karen tipped us off to some of the coolest aprons I've ever seen from Etsy shop DarkBalloons. They're handmade to order (custom sizes available!), they've got gorgeous lines, and they're based on some of my favourite characters from Nintendo's Mario and Zelda franchises, and the Powerpuff Girls! Check them out…
I was sitting at work today thinking about how I need to get rid of my not-so-old and very busted futon because it's so damn uncomfortable, but also knowing this wasn't gonna happen anytime soon because we don't the have money to buy a replacement sofa.

We have reached a point in our home where "blaming it on the dog" has become a regular activity. Harley is an eight-year-old shepherd mix that, up until a few months ago, was super-active. After injury and rehab, he's doing great, but the months of inactivity have not gotten along with his digestive tract. For the past few weeks my partner and I have been keeping magazines close at hand to fan noxious odors in the other direction, keeping oil burners going almost 24/7, and banish our loving friend to other parts of the house. We've had to even go as far as to sleep with the window open (in March!) to avoid finding ourselves being woken up in a gas chamber. I know Harley's food had a major role in his digestive distress but unfortunately due to a special diet and picky eating on his part, changing his food was not an option. So what to do… Thank gawd for Google!
