Fort What It's Worth: Texas Blogger Pumps Up PANYL

The best compliments are the ones you don't see coming. And this morning we stumbled on a post full of 'em.

Over on Dress This Nest, Yvonne is getting all rustic with her EXPEDIT changing table hack.

Hey, Sugar: Coffee Stirrer Keychains

Something as ordinary and disposable as a coffee stirrer is not what one would typically expect as the foundation for a beautiful DIY project. But that is just what Jamie Costiglio implemented for her lovely keychain 'hack' on Pretty Handy Girl.

When IKEA revealed that it was retiring the world's most ubiquitous bookcase, the web erupted in EXPLIDITIVES.  “What a KALLAXAMITY!”, they typed in all caps.  Alas, the situation is not nearly as bad as we feared now that, in truly EXPIDITIOUS fashion, the KALLAX has landed!
