For all you renters out there who lamented your ugly walls here's a nifty new invention for you! Introducing temporary wallpaper! Found this via Oh Happy Day. It's by Sherwin Williams and it's called Easy Change. You apply the prepasted paper to your wall and when you want to take it down you simply grab the corners at the top of the strip and pull it down. The wall does not need to be repainted or anything! To see the Easychange patterns go to Sherwin Williams then click on Wallpapers and Borders then click on the "New Easychange Wallpaper" logo.
There are a lot of ugly patterns but here are a few pretty ones:

Well, I didn't get the hydrogen car but one of my presents DID include David Sedaris's "When Engulfed in Flames". And I'm so excited to read it! I've been having 'laptop issues' and cannot take my computer outside so I've been longing to have something to read on the porch that I can really look forward to. For any of you who have NOT heard of David Sedaris, he is my favorite author, EVAH! If you like sardonic, witty writing you must read him. I suggest starting with "Holiday's on Ice" a collection of true short stories....of those, start with "Santaland Diaries". You'll never look back.
