I did not inherit the chocolate lover’s gene.
But even I was inspired by this bit of food porn —
I’d probably pull out the flowers and eat the banana first. But chocolate roses? Pretty darn adorable. And best of all, they’re —

I watched The Princess Bride for the umpteenth time again today.
(It came on TV suddenly; what else could I do?)
I was playing on Facebook and Twitter at the same , where I encountered a bunch of pumpkin stuff. This spurred a random thought —
Are there any Princess Bride pumpkin carvings out there?
As you wish!

In honor of the first day of the Championships Wimbledon, I have posted an amazing portrait of Queen Elizabeth:
It was created from random, found objects by British artist Jane Perkins.
There are two reasons to celebrate the old country today!

My niece dressed as Martha Stewart at her office for Halloween this year. An essential part of her costume?
I realized when she posted a pic that I hadn’t worn an apron in years and have only owned one in my entire life — an apron that I made in my home economics class in high school.
It looked much like the one at left, except mine was constructed out of blue denim.
It featured Snoopy and Woodstock and the dog bowl, too…and I think one of them was holding a sign — appliqued, you understand.
I got an ‘A’ for my sewing job…and I think I could probably still pull it off today.
Not sure my cooking skills would make the same grade.

I think I speak for most Manhattanites when I say —
Space is at a premium.
So I am particularly impressed by these staircase drawers – an ingenious way to use previously wasted space to store everything from shoes to clothing to linens to pet food to bulk items…you name it!
I obviously get excited just thinking about them.
CanadianHomeWorkshop.com features step-by-step (he he he) instructions so you can make your very own staircase drawers. I’m not sure I would try something this ambitious, but iffin you wanna, here they are.
Now, if I only had some stairs….

I’m a homeowner who tries to be handy. When that fails…
I call Ed.
So I loved this tip I picked up on the Interwebs about dealing with stripped screws. (If you’ve known this for years, bear with me because it bears repeating for folks like me.)
To remove the stripped screw, simply place a rubber band over it. Then use your screwdriver to unscrew it.
The rubber band should provide enough grip for you to ease the screw right out.
You’re not reading this anymore, are you? You’re taking care of all those dodgey screws in your house!
Sorry, Ed — we’ve got this one.
