Thank you so much to all of you for following my blog! It has been such a pleasure reading your comments and questions - so I thought, what better way to spend my afternoon than answering some of the questions I have received. Hope you find my answers useful and inspiring and, please, keep the questions coming!
Q: Does the Secret International Candy Drawer have anything from Canada? - Kimberly
A: Hi Kimberly. As of now, there is no Canadian candy in my drawer, but there's plenty room for more! Let me know what your favorite candies are and I will be sure to keep an eye out for them on my next visit to Canada.
Q: Just wondering where you purchased those lobster rolls? - Julie
A: Down East Lobster Company. You must try them if you're in the area, Julie! Simply the best. (Down East Lobster Co., 1192 Bar Harbor Rd, Trenton, ME, (207) 667-8589)
Q: What paint colors did you use on the faux bois magazine holders? - Melisa
A: Thanks for your interest, Melisa! It's a really fun project. We used "Sharkey Gray (MS153)" and "Cinders (MS236)" from the Martha Stewart Colors for Valspar Paint Collection at Lowe's. Visit http://www.valsparatlowes.com/explore-colors/signature-colors-by-designer/Martha%20Stewart%20Colors.html
Q: Do you now have a regular radio show and if so, when is it? - Laurie

Q: Are you going to put a mirror in the entry hall to your apartment? - Melisa
A: I'm still contemplating several ideas for the entrance hallway. I'll be sure to keep all of you in the loop once I make the decision!
Q: I have a very large living room...and I need to fill up the front area near the windows with a piece of furniture. Please help me think of some ideas to accent this room! - Roz
A: It's always a daunting task deciding how to fill a space in a useful and aesthetically pleasing way! One suggestion is to find a very long, wide bench (or maybe a pair) in a simple and clean design (think metal legs), and have it upholstered with a beautiful fabric. See the photos in the slide show above for some examples.
