  1. I always look that happy when I'm at the dishwasher. ;-) btw, that cute little house is almost exactly the same floor plan as my next door neighbor's.

    1. I love mid century homes. It's one of the reasons I enjoy going to estate sales because most of them these days take place in one. I grew up in a very similar floor plan, but we didn't have a garage.

  2. Wow since buying new hot point dishwasher, I have time to make candles, do my nails and plan Halloween games! I hope the party guests are comfortable sharing spoons and marshmallows!

    1. If they don't, make them walk the plank!

  3. i love the Bulletin Board household tips page -- these kinds of things are like catnip to me. i can't seem help reading them. sometimes they are actually good tips! but did they REALLY need to post a recipe for buttered rice? i mean, the ingredients are water, rice, salt, and butter. YOU CAN FIGURE IT OUT FROM THE NAME, i have faith in you, savvy 50s housewives!

    also, this reminded me that we really should look into radiator covers for our house. i worry that it would cut down on the efficiency of the radiators, though. what's an old-home owner to do??

      Would you believe that's what I was thinking when I scanned that? I remembered you mentioning your radiators.

    2. really? haha, i don't even remember ever mentioning it to you. that's how long i've idly thought about it, i guess. the thing is, i LIKE the way the radiators look -- they are gold and gorgeous -- but we could always use more horizontal space, and for some reason they are situated in front of the windows in every room. kind of a pain.
