I once thought that I didn't like meringue cookies. The ones from the store always reminded me of styrofoam and never had enough flavor to be worth my time. Then, in culinary school, I started messing around with chocolate left over from a molding lesson and some unused egg whites and I wound up with a meringue cookie to die for. They have a great texture and deep chocolate flavor—plus, they're gluten-free! by cecilia

OMG yes! An organized closet is my DREAM COME TRUE.  With a nursery I love that you can take advantage of the time you have to plan it.  Is there any other room in the house where you get to plan the storage of items BEFORE you actually acquire the items rather than always playing catch-up?  I might loose the beanie baby organizer though...    #KBHome by marie

This is a detail from the front room. We wanted things to feel really rich right when you come in the door, so you walk through the leaf-and-key covered entryway into this room,” says Tara. “I love the different patterns in the rug and couch and how surprisingly well they work together. We knew we wanted to do some gallery style walls, so we had our eye out for great artwork all throughout the job. by leona

Restoring teak furniture  What You Need:  Rubber Gloves  Two Brushes  Medium Grit Sandpaper  Soft Bristle Brush or Steel Wool  TSP (a cleaning agent) and a bucket of warm water  Teak Oil  Polyurethane    Instructions:    Clean: If you are dealing with teak turned old and grey you will be surprised at how this step alone will begin to transform your piece. Using a soft bristle brush or steel wool, thoroughly scrub the wood with warm water and a detergent like TSP. This gets rid of the oxidation and dirt that has built up and given the wood its silvery patina. Depending on the state of your teak this step can take quite a while and require some serious arm work. If you're starting out with some really weathered teak you will begin to see some serious transformation here as the wood's true color starts to make its appearance.    Sand: You'll need to get some medium grit sanding blocks and sand your teak by hand to even out the top layer of wood. Try to get the color as even as possible.    Dry Time: If you're like me this is the hardest part. I am so impatient that once I start I just want to keep going till it's finished, but I assure you this step is really important. Your newly cleaned teak needs a few days of drying time so that the oil you will put on in the next step can fully saturate deep into the wood's pores.    Oil: These next two steps are very toxic so make sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start applying these chemicals. Now that the wood is good and dry you are ready to apply the oil. Go get some good quality Teak Oil, a brush and some rubber gloves and lightly brush the oil over all surfaces three times each. You must do this a minimum of four rounds with an hour in-between allowing time for the oil to fully saturate the wood. Apply as many times as needed until you get the desired color of wood.    Seal: At this time your teak should be looking as good as new. After all the work you've put in you may be tempted to call it quits, but you still have one more step. You have only restored the teak's natural oil at this point but haven't protected it from further damage. That's where the polyurethane comes in to seal in the oil and protect the surface. Paint on a few coats and let dry for a few days, and you'll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your newly restored Teak furniture.    Store: Going from Los Angeles to Seattle I completely failed to do this step last winter so I thought I would throw it in. I used to live outside and never had to give a second thought to my outdoor furniture so upon moving to this new climate I was a bit stubborn and naive about the correct upkeep. So if you don't live somewhere that has year round summer then you should either cover your furniture or bring it into an unheated garage. I say unheated because temperature changes and excess heat can crack your wood.      MORE TEAK RESTORATION ON APARTMENT THERAPY:  How To Care For Teak Furniture by babyblu3

Eeeek spent the better part of my day painting the spare room off our back living room here. I haven't had time to paint rooms or do fun things like that lately [yes, I find this all fun] so I figured spending my birthday eve doing that was a little gift to myself. The room has some high ceilings so it's giving me the run for my money & it's far from done, so I thought I'd share with you this side of the room as I sit here and take a break. Cheers to the weekend friends!! #whitecottagefarm... by graciela

The doctor was going to talk to her some more about it but never did. My certificate does not say who attended my birth. Sh by florence

I always hated hearing about how awesome Edison was, when I was in school(and even now). The dude might have had some good ideas(if he didn't steal them first), but he was a complete asshole. We're owned by Tesla technology today, and what did he get for it? Constantly shat on all the way up to the day he died. *fumes* by marsha

He already went through that once and I would literally break if he had to go through it again. Who ever tweeted this probably didn't give it a second thought whereas I'll be thinking of it all night. Just because Justin didn't win the award, doesn't give you the right to do this.
