Now this would make it a little more easy to tell keys apart!

The Table Search

Hi All, Anna here...

Grrrr.... the table search is not going well.

The space is 31" wide but we wouldn't want to squish it in there... so 27"is probably best.
To see what we are talking about click here:

If anyone has some links to great tables... and let's not break the bank here (I'm totally cheap)... then please leave a comment!!

I've been getting lost on Ebay... and I started to get dry mouth... HELP!

Anna's 1st Fabric Result!

After taking down wallpaper with a handy-dandy steam machine (rented... don't try taking down wallpaper without it... it's just not worth the pain), Anna & Hubby decided to paint the hallway of their second floor lemon sorbet (or yellow). They used Benjamin Moore's new super duper eco friendly(and good for pregnant ladies) Aura paint... it's super expensive but it self primes and is pretty awesome! And Anna used her first fabric for some new window treatments:

It's modern but still has a kind of ethnic feel... we dig.
Next Challenge: Finding the perfect table for the circled spot! If you were walking up the stairs it would be the first thing you saw... any suggestions???

Meg's New Love... Card Making!

Meg's new hobby has been making custom made cards for her friends and family...
Here's the thank you note from her wedding (obviously it folds!):

For our friend Dana's B'day she crafted this card (she's a Patriots fan):

These cards aren't only fun to make... they also show the person you are giving too that you really took the time to think about them!

Oodles of Fabric!

Anna has a lot of sewing to do!

During a recent internet shopping breakdown she decided to order all new fabric for ongoing projects in her new old house...

This is what resulted:

Together it may look like madness... but she's got a lot of plans! Stay tuned for all the results!

Howard Roark laughed.

Our very literate friend, Nora, turned us on to this site:

It's like a Myspace dedicated to Reading... you can learn about authors, chat with other bookworms, and create your own book list... pretty fun for you smarties!

P.S. Nora's that cool blonde chick in Boulder who rocks around in a Design...Stat sweatshirt! Say HI if you see her... but don't scare her... geez!

Handmade is Better!

One of our new favorite websites is! It totally rocks!!

Megan has found herself a new pet there:

It begs the question... "Who doesn't want a removable vest?"

You can cruise this site for hours... so enter at your own risk!
It is shocking how crafty and creative people really are!

Toting the Green Life

So, a New Year's Resolution this year is to bring canvas bags to the grocery store... this didn't have to be done in the city because the bags could be reused to pick up after the doggy, but now in the suburbs the guilt has set in!

You'll definately need produce bags:

and then you'll need some totes... which you can usually purchase right at the grocery store, but if you want to get cute... here are some ideas... of course you can always make your own!

T-shirt bags just roll up in your trunk:

Here's a cute tote:

Of course we recommend this AWESOME DesignStat Model!!
