  18. This book has been on my amazon wish list for almost a year now. I think I might have to by the dang thing tonight. I just can't take it anymore!

    And how about those latch hook rugs on the floor. Designed by Calder and latched by his wife. She is awesome. I still haven't finished the tiny rug I started ages ago.
