This is an excellent article. I also highly recommend Slido Classic track hardware, available through Hafele, which functions similar to soft-close drawer slides, "catching" the pocket door when you slide it open or closed to stop its fast movement and ease it into its closed or open position. Very nice stuff.

rogue decor The EZ closer looks great! I rent my house half the year. Do you find it is intuitive when people first encounter it, or will I have to explain to people how to close the door?

"Overall, consider putting a bit more planning into your plant purchases and placement in the landscape. I know this planning can take time (you could always hire someone to do it for you), but you, the plants, the wildlife and your budget will have a much happier long-term relationship."

Oh my goodness...so very true! As a landscape designer, the most difficult task is plant choice and placement. I spend WAY more time researching, pondering, choosing the plants for a plan than the actual design. There are so many considerations. And even when the plants are in the ground I wonder if they were the best choices I could have made! And, yes, native plants should/are my first choice. Native flora brings native fauna!

Well done!

Update of photo I posted previously ... one year later! Festuca is still there on the other side of the very, very prolific parrot's beak and still doing well ... had to remove a few more due to rabbit problem.

There are thousands of species in the Euphorbia family... yes some can be invasive, but others are not, and many are spectacular and work very well in drought tolerant gardens in many regions!

Like many plants, this a spectacular choice in the right area, and a terrible choice in others. Until I saw this idea book, I had no idea that the pretty but aggressive and annoying weed I pull out of my back garden was Euphorbia characias. Apparently Oregon isn't a good place for it. This was the first year I've ever so thoroughly abandoned the back yard (huge remodel project) that it actually bloomed. It's stunning. It's just not anywhere I want it and I've been trying to kill it off for 8 years.

I know stonecrop is a very healing plant. Eminence is using that in their skin are products. Suppose to be more healing then aloe Vera by 40% and very hydrating. Wonderful plant, and very beautiful!

Marjeanne, I also had succulents in my wedding bouquet and potted them out after our honeymoon. This year we're celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and the succulents and their babies are still going strong, so much so that we'll be using them on a green roof in our house remodel. I hope they'll always be around as a lovely reminder of our wedding.

How to Install a Drip Irrigation System

scoutstella, that's probably what I should do, although most kits don't come with the pressure regulator, timer, or filter. All essential to really use the system effectively. Those items will at least double if not triple your initial investment.

Well, we had a "professional" landscape gardener put our drip hoses in and they fell apart by the second year, now she want to just put in a overground hose with a sprinkler, I feel like she doesn't know what she doing--you guys here make it seem so much simpler than she has, should I get rid of her?

Air quality is a huge factor in many health conditions. Until I moved to Florida, I lived in a coal-mining region where grey skies were the norm, especially in the winter when smoke from coal furnaces flowed from the chimneys of homes that were heated with coal because it was so cheap.

If you lived near a river you also had to contend with the emissions from the chemical plants that lined its banks, their tall stacks belching steam laced with noxious fumes. My youngest had asthma, and would end up in the emergency room of the nearest hospital, along with a lot of other people in respiratory distress, any time one of those plants had a major "burp". Everyone in the area knew what an inversion was, because it kept the smoke and fumes closer to the ground and intensified their effects.

Our family doctor advised getting him out of that environment, and so that fall we moved to a cottage on a beach dune in Florida, where his asthma improved amazingly. And then we had a red tide . . .

Pollution is everywhere, and information like what is presented in this article gives us a chance to minimize our childrens' exposure to it. So why wouldn't any parent limit that exposure whenever we can? Knowledge is power, and thanks to Robyn Lawrence, tmasepohl and the others who add to that knowledge.

And one tip from me: be sure to thoroughly wash any new clothing, sheets and blankets before allowing them to come into contact with your baby to eliminate some of the insecticides and chemicals they may have come in contact with while they were being manufactured.

How did this become a discussion about cosleeping or not?! This is about getting ideas on decorating or setting up your space. I'm a first time mom (admittedly, in need of lots of advice) but am honestly tired of people offering their two cents where it's not invited. And with a side order of judgement to boot. You have to do what works best for you and your family.

And to those who wonder about spontaneous intimacy while cosleeping... Trust me, it's not a problem for us. Ever.

Now, can we get back to room ideas, please? I liked some of those ideas but agree with those comments about drapes being safety hazards, etc.

@Jennifer Louise Interiors. Your comment made me smile, when my brother and I went to live temporarily with our dad and his second family, there were two adults and five kids in a small single wide trailer. My dad and step mom slept on the couch, four kids were in the double bed and the baby slept in the bathtub. Far from ideal but we all thrived.

I have 3 kids and feeding them healthy food is a priority. As a working mom (in natural medicine), I also need to keep it easy. I started a facebook page to give other parents food ideas. I am a big fan of the stainless lunchboxes and containers. They hold up well and work nicely for kids who like a bit of this and that, instead of a more traditional sandwich lunch. https://www.facebook.com/whatsinyourlunchbox

Impossible not to love the examples shown here! The colorful accents, simple furniture and "organized mess" looks are a proof that children live in those spaces. Our favorites are the maps, the chalkboard and the brick walls.
