Darn you Martha!

I have spent all month reading home organization books, blogs and magazines from the library.  The first one I have been tempted to buy is by Martha Stewart.  Drat!

Most of this books have been pretty useless.  They have the same four or five tips that you already know and are highly padded with beautiful pictures.  This one still has beautiful pictures but it also has three ideas I want to use in the first 30 pages.  Like screwing finial to the end of your floating bookshelves to act as permanent bookends. Or adapting a medicine cabinet as a spice rack.  Or DIY pot racks using a grab bar and some S hooks.

But, in true Martha style, something is left out.  It’s the source information.  There is source information in the back, but all of the items that I have seen and wanted to find (not antiques, which is a whole other problem) like the shelves on page 63, are not listed in the source guide.

Darn.

    So does she leave one important step out here too? One too few screws maybe? LOL. And what is her fascination with that green?
