Young House Love

One of my favorite blogs of the moment is Young House Love story of a young couple falling in love with their house as they transform it into the house of their dreams.  The DIYers have become very popular and have even been featured on HGTV and in various publications.  Visit their blog to gather home improvement tips and to follow how they transformed their home step by step.  They have great ideas on paint colors and great places to shop.  You can send them pictures of your own home and they will come up with ideas about what you can do to create a space you love.  One recent post I saw on their site was about "vacation jars,"  a really neat and funky way to display vacation memories using simple (and cheap) mason jars.  The next time you go on a trip, bring back some sand, shells--if not the beach a ticket stub, a matchbook, a plane ticket.  Put the objects in a mason jar and create a nice label for it and display them somewhere on a shelf.  Don't forget to write yourself a postcard from the trip to include in the jar!
