A new ironing board!
No more breaking my back over this abomination - the "inch" squares aren't really 1", the middle is all ripply, and it's just too smushy all together. I love my new (gulp, $80) ironing board!
And we're still working on the flatware. We realized that (1) much of it looks the same, and (2) there aren't that many "service for 12" in the stores. Online shopping, baby. This was a helpful online resource.
