Audience Participation

I found out today that Domino Magazine is being cancelled. I never loved it as much as Blueprint - but I'm sad it's going as well. I kept meaning to give away a few subscriptions to that magazine on here but I guess it's a good thing I didn't!

I am trying to think up an idea for a give away though. Stay tuned!

So, I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to write my next blog entry about. I haven't really cooked anything new/exciting in the past week. So - you get to ask questions! My favorite spice? How often I clean the bathroom? My favorite pajamas? What I got for Christmas when I was ten? (My mother required photo documentation - I could tell you!) Go for it!* It would probably be better with the whole theme of the blog if it was at least somewhat related to domesticity - but whatever!

So - ask away. Lurkers (and I know you're out there! Stat counter tells me you come here by the droves searching for ways to boil eggs and hang picture frame collages) feel free to show your face and ask something.

I'll compile the questions and make a new post in a day or so with the answers.

Happy Questioning!

*No promises to if I answer your crazy questions of course ;-)


  1. What are some helpful tips you have that aren't ordinary? (i.e., you can't find it in a book...perhaps something your mother or grandmother taught you, etc)

    For example, a friend told me how to make wooden furniture really shine. Stick spam (yes, the canned stuff) in an old nylon stocking and polish the wood, then buff with a clean, dry cloth. Apparently it works wonders!

  2. What is your favorite thing to cook or bake?

    But now that you mention it, what is your favorite spice?

  3. Where do you get inspiration for your decorating (other than Blue Print which I also loved)?

  4. Ok...I don't really have a question but I thought of you tonight while at Target, and it relates to this blog. There was a decorating with Domino book...FABULOUS! I wanted to buy it (especially since Friday was pay day) but I didn't)). :( It looked great though, so I'm thinking that for a few months it could take the place of the magizine!


  5. Why don't you introduce us to some of the blogs you link to on the side of this blog? An intro and a mini review for each would be great "filler" when you haven't blogged in a while but have nothing to show. Since there are so many, if you spread them out, they could last quite a while.

  6. aren't you glad i photographed so you could remember?

  7. i think your favorite Christmas gift was "kirsten", but maybe not....what is it? there's lots of years to think about...and when you decide what your favorite Christmas gift is/was, answer the question of "why".

    ps: sorry another of your fav magazines is stopping :-(
