Sometimes being a homeowner totally blows.

So I buy a condo. Replace all the crappy old appliances except the stacking washer/dryer because it's slightly less old and slightly less crappy. Three months later the washer and dryer crap out. Find out the reason old dryer hose emptied into a bucket instead of being vented is not because old owner was lazy, but because condo board won't allow dryer vents to be installed. Just ordered this ventless washer/dryer combo unit that cost more than all my other new appliances combined.

It's Yellow. I like yellow.

This birdcage is cute. And since I have a couple of Crate & Barrel gift cards burning a hole in my pocket, I may just have to bring it home. If I can think of a place to put it...

Maybe one day...

I came across this post the other day on Apartment Therapy about organizing your craft room. It is just the inspiration I need. My spare bedroom is going to be my office/craft room. I say "going to be" because right now it's a place of total chaos - where I stash all the stuff I haven't found a place for yet. That, and boxes I haven't gotten around to unpacking yet. Sad. But someday (hopefully sooner rather than later) I am going to tackle this mess and turn it into a functional space. I hope I can make it look as pretty as all of these examples. Oh... big job. Kinda scared.
