Pop Quiz, Hot Shot!

We registered for Lenox Hancock Platinum dinnerware when we got married and recently bought some attractive stoneware from Target to use as our every day dishes. The problem: they're both beige with a dark and metallic rim. I think this is too much for me. Thoughts?

The good stuff

The Every Day

I love this, but it does not go with anything else in our dining room.

More house envy. Alas, this one is in Springfield, MA so too far for us.

I've uploaded the bulk of the photos (below) and you can find more (or buying info) here: http://idx.mlspin.com/details.asp?mls=70403645&aid=E0000PMG

"Stylish" Lyndhurst Olympian

I seldom watch the Olympics but I do like the figure skating and snow boarding. Thus, I want to point out that Olympic figure skater, Johnny Weir, is from neighboring Lyndhurst, NJ. Poor Johnny, he took 6th place on Feb 16 but he is fun to watch. He claims he may retire from skating and go into fashion design. Um, really, have you seen skating costumes?!?!?! Who would want to dress like that?

In other news, he gets his hair styled at Eric Alt Salon in Wood Ridge. While that does not make me want to get my hair cut there, it does make me want to drive over and gawk and the patrons. Conversely, I get my hair done at Bangz in Montclair, where I think most of the customers come out looking pretty chic.

Here's a picture of Johnny from the Feb 16 performance. You be the judge.

House Envy

This house is about half a mile from mine and about twice the price. Is it twice as nice, I don't think so, but I am super envious of the original woodwork and detailing.

Stairway is reminiscent of Stanford White houses

Edwardian columns, window trim and picture molding, nice!

Floors seem to be in lovely condition, simple stained glass window, and might that be the original door!?!?

The view is not as nice as where I used to live in Weehawken, but I'll take it.
