Vanity lights from George Kovacs. $200 online.
Light switches--one regular (for vanity light) and one motion sensing (for overhead light). Motion sensing light switch cost $20 from Home Depot. It really works.
Toto Aquia dual flush (1.6 GPF / 0.9 GPF) toilet. About $300 retail. We're completely used to using these dual flush toilets now.Ceramic tile (12"x24") from where we got almost all of our tile--Tile Outlet. $3.50 per square foot laid in brick pattern.
West Elm "Flat Stock" towel ring. $29 online. Last but now least: low VOC paint from Sherwin Williams (about $40 per gallon but they have frequent sales).
Anyway, despite some setbacks, we're really enjoying our new neighborhood. The neighbors have been very friendly--both the long-time residents as well as the new comers. And look--Josh loves the new tot lot at Palmer Square that just opened. I have to admit--I love it too. It's really a great anchor to our neighborhood as its namesake, Palmer Square. The only thing I don't like about it is that Josh loves it so much that he cries every time we have to leave!
PS: Speaking of Palmer Square, here's a little known fact. I created the Wikipedia entry for our neighborhood, Palmer Square on July 17, 2006. Since then, I've tweaked it a bit here and there and even added a picture of Palmer Square.
