We wanted something that looked built-in, but that wasn’t actually built-in (in case we moved).  A piece of furniture that could be broken down into separate units and used in different areas of a room if needed.  This is all-in-one as shown, but can also act as 2 book shelves and a TV stand.  Especially love the hutch which hides the TV.  Out of sight, out of mind, when it comes to the kiddos, so I only have to watch Dora when I choose to do so.  Lot’s of storage below for toys or DVDs.  We have the black version, but it comes in multiple colors and is on sale at the moment.||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-NoMerchRules-_-



My “take two pieces of saran wrap with flour and dough between them and wrestle a rolling pin over them to roll out cookie dough and pie crust evenly” days are over.  Put one of these above and one of these below and the dough or crust comes off evenly and smoothly. Apparently the French know everything when it comes to cooking.  Go figure.  Merci Silpat.


Apparently my home town (NYC) has become a hurricane target.  I needed this device a few weeks ago when we were in the dark.  7 hours of power when charged and then just turn the crank and you are back in business.  It provides power for lights, TVs, stereos, small appliances and computers, as well as DC power for jump-starting cars (cables included).  Genius!
