There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Yay! Join usss... Smiley

Ahem... I wholeheartedly agree, Mistress_T about cabinet doors... anything that covers up my mess is welcome! Smiley I love the idea of having everything in lovely big jars, but I know it'll never happen... (Doesn't help that my boyfriend has to indulge himself in tins of spagetti hoops occasionally... I'm not having those on show! Smiley

Yes, Alteredmommy, definitely join us! 

Hee hee, Rakechan--I'm loving the English lingo.  Has anyone lived on both continents?  Are spaghetti hoops the same as Spaghetti-o's?  I used to love them as a kid.  I put butter on them.  It kinda grosses me out to think about that now...

My favorite thing to eat as a kid was lettuce with mustard on it.  No sandwich, no other salad-y veggies, just lettuce and mustard.

Yay! I am getting a little ambitious on the swap front, but this one was too good to pass up. Smiley Sent my details - did anyone else write paragraphs and paragraphs? I think I gave a little too much detail. Smiley

I'm working on my sign-up right now....  I love sign-up questionnaires and how they make you think about your style, likes and dislikes.  Though mine usually end up like mini-novels Roll Eyes

I live in a town with virtually no older homes, no milk-chutes here, nothing much besides very boring suburban homes(I find the much touted "oak package" very irritating)Tongue  The husband and 16 year old are huge auction hounds so at least we have some nifty stuff(way too much stuff mind you!) My best friend who lives in the "big city" a few hours away did have a cool house with not only a milk-chute, but one of those nifty built in ironing boards in the kitchen (folded down out of the cupboard).  I don't iron but do love the idea of hidden functional items!

We're downsizing our home this year as one of 3 kids has left for university.  I aim to cull thru alot of stuff and hope to end up with the most beautiful AND useful.  Good thing I have a few months....

My house is about 100 years old.  Its good, and its bad.  It is very quirky.  It started life as a tiny ranch house, probably only 4 rooms, with a basement and garage.  Over time it has morphed into a 2200 square foot weird looking partially two story house.  We have 2 furnaces (and a huge gas bill...).  My son's bedroom used to be the original garage.  Our lot has giant old trees, though, so the drafts are worth it! We may have had a milk chute at one point.  There's a lot of stuff in the basement that is now bricked over.  Our house, and one across the street, are the oldest in our neighborhood.  The lady that we bought the house from was the daughter of the lady that built the house (1917) and she said that her mother got to choose the address.  Its a corner house, and they even got to pick which street the house is officially on.  Now its really hard for people to find my house, because the address says one street, but the house faces the other one.

Heya - yep, I think they're the same as Spaghetti-os... the thing that makes me shudder now is that I used to love tinned ravioli!

I love those quirky, old houses that were built in no particular style-full of interesting nooks and crannies that make you wonder...  I live in northern Canada in a town that probly started out as a rail stop/trading post in the twenties.  Unfortunately now its a oil boom kind of place and there really isn't anything much older than a few tiny 50's/60's houses left....sad really to see the culture of big/shiny/new everywhere.
