Some interesting questions have been asked in comments lately, so we thought a quick roundup might enlighten us all. If you have answers for any of these folks, please share. And if you have a question of your own, ask away! We’ll do what we can to help.
Adina says, “I have been wondering lately about dog crates…does anyone know any not-ugly crates for larger dogs or have a pattern for making a sort of crate cover? I hate how my dog’s crate uglifies a corner of my living room.” (She was responding to our link to this post about the eiCrate, shown above, which is very cool, but only for small dogs — and super-pricey.)
Holly D asks, “We grabbed about 20 lbs. of clay off a dune in Wellfleet, Mass. yesterday and plan to mold it into some fun things. Can they be dried in a conventional oven? (We don’t plan to glaze the objects.)”
Emilie has a question about Ikea’s Ektorp sleeper sofa. “We’re thinking about buying this sofa (after drooling over a much more expensive version at Pottery Barn). Can you tell me if it’s comfortable? Thanks!”
Finally, DC has a cookie question. “I bought “The New Best Recipe” book, and cannot find a White Chocolate Chip Macadamia cookie recipe anywhere. They must have removed it from the new edition. :( Can anyone post the recipe or email it to me?”
Okay, readers — you know what to do.
