Ok, now I'm just a bit sad that we aren't in the States.  Aside from not seeing friends and family, and missing our TV shows, we can't really build the furniture that I was wanting to try my hand at. 

http://www.knockoffwood.com/ Ana White designs the plans and publishes them for free on her website, and the furniture rivals Pottery Barn, Land of Nod, etc, and in most cases, is even better!  She has built most of what she publishes, and her readers have built the things she has not built.  The price is about 1/4 of the cost of buying the furniture brand new, and its gorgeous!  I want to make the Farmhouse bed, the simple bench, the nightstands, media center, simple bookcases, the list goes on of all the things I want to make. 

Anyhow, that's all.  I wish we had a house to be able to make this stuff at (I could find most of the wood, and probably haggle a good price, too)!  But, in the long run, it will be better to come back stateside first, and see what house we will be in next, before making all this awesome stuff! :P

I hated when I couldn't get something I really wanted b/c of not being stateside. Which is funny when I think of all the things I miss from Italy. Grass is always greener, I suppose!
