The Carbon-Free Home

by stephen Rebekah Hren

You've read the stories and watched the documentaries. So you're convinced--burning fossil fuels leads to global climate change; supplies of fossil fuels are diminishing in quantity and increasing in price. You've fretted and worried, but still go through your day consuming some quantity of non-renewable fossil fuels to accomplish nearly every task (and you may not even realize it). You want to do something besides worry but you are unsure where to begin. Read this book--then grab your handsaw, tape measure, and drill, and get started! A life powered by the sun is waiting for you. Meant as a guide for renovating existing homes, this book gives you the hands-on knowledge necessary to kick the fossil fuel habit, with projects small and large listed by skill, time, cost, and energy saved. For every aspect of your life currently powered by fossil fuels, we offer alternatives you can accomplish yourself to get started using renewable and sustainable sources of power. Inspired by their own determination to wean themselves completely from fossil fuels, Rebekah and Stephen Hren provide a map for others interested in the path to producing all their own energy and living a fossil fuel-free life. It shows first how to reduce energy consumption as much as possible, then how to retrofit an existing home in order to obtain all heating and cooling, all cooking and refrigeration, and all hot water and electricity from renewable sources. The Hrens also provide advice on renewable methods of transportation and home gardening, as poor choices about food and mobility often negate hard-won gains in the home. Like many today, the Hrens felt they had a moral obligation to mitigate humankind's contribution to the ravages of pollution, including global warming as a result of fossil fuel addiction. In this book, the Hrens offer practical approaches that fit into anyone's budget, and can be done over time as a way to wean oneself from fossil fuel dependency.

In her trademark witty style, Turnbull also addresses tools, landscape renovation, and design errors. Included too are her amusing Ten Commandments for gardeners, which feature such treasures as "Thou shalt not weed-whip the trunk of thy tree, nor bash it with thine mower, nor leave anything tied on thy tree or the branches of thy tree, as is done in the land of the philistines."

Thou shalt not cover up the base of thy plant, or thy tree, or thy shrub. Neither with mulch, nor with soil, nor with any landscape material.8. Thou shalt cut circling/girdling roots.9. Thou shalt not compact the root zone of thy tree, nor trench near the trunk of thy tree.10. Thou shalt not weed-whip the trunk of thy tree, nor bash it with thine mower, nor leave anything tied on thy tree or the branches of thy tree, as is done in the land of the philistines.With the information in Cass Turnbull's Guide to Pruning, you can approach your trees, shrubs, and other plants with the knowledge that will make your plants grow in healthy and aesthetic ways.

Catalog Living at Its Most Absurd

by Molly Erdman

Millions have already been to Gary and Elaine's. Isn't it time you dropped by? Have you ever flipped through the pages of a Pottery Barn catalog and thought, "Who actually lives that way?" Rest assured, you are not alone. Pushed too far by a photo depicting a plate of figs placed under a table, actor and Second City-alum Molly Erdman created Gary and Elaine, a well-heeled and deeply superficial couple living happily amongst abundantly pillowed chairs, giant abacuses, and decorative fruit. Inspired by Erdman's popular blog Catalog Living, Decorating Takes (Wicker) Balls takes home décor catalog photos and sends them up with wickedly funny captions mockumenting Gary and Elaine, their lives, and their absurdly over-decorated rooms. Praise for www.catalogliving.net:"'Catalog Living'" taps into thoughts many have had ... about how things are sold to us." --Chicago Tribune

celebraTORI

by Tori Spelling

"I love the puzzle of throwing special, chic parties with down-to-earth budgets, and lucky you, I'm psyched to share my secrets." Tori Spelling planned her very first party (her own roller skate-themed birthday with a hot-pink- and-turquoise color scheme) at the age of eight, and she's been hosting friends and family in her home ever since. She knows as well as anyone that "style" and "elegance" don't often play well with "budget." Well, with celebraTORI, she rolls up her sleeves and turns that notion on its head--expertly showing how creativity, passion, and smart planning are the secret ingredients for throwing a truly unforgettable bash on any "real world" budget. All it takes is a little elbow grease and a lot of imagination to transport your guests to another world as soon as they walk through the door. In this delightfully entertaining, must-have party companion, Tori shares all the tips and tricks she's learned from her most successful soirees (and a few train wrecks). It's like having your own personal party planner for a fraction of the cost! celebraTORI is not just instructional, it's inspirational. Hosting an event is not about ticking to-dos off a list; it's about turning an organic idea into a fun day you and your guests won't forget--so much so that you just can't wait to do it again . . . with a different theme, of course. Tori covers all the basics, from discovering new reasons to celebrate and choosing a concept, to decorating, creating flower arrangements, making refreshments, and building the corner-stone of any great party: the dessert table! The best part is that all of her suggestions, including her mouthwatering recipes, are 100 percent do-it-yourself. Filled with lots and lots of great advice, handy blueprints, and hilarious anecdotes, celebraTORI will be the most important guest at your next party. It's the perfect foundation for taking life's special occasions up a notch . . . or five. ***They say the devil's in the details, but for me the details are heaven. Maybe an avid planner and host like me should say that in the course of the party I'm on a cloud of joy, but that would be a lie. Planning and preparing are my favorite parts of the process. Truth be told, when it comes to the actual parties, I'm a nervous wreck. But there is a moment of joy. Mine comes when I see the party come together. The guests are flowing through the space, tasting food, trying out any activities, having conversations with friends and strangers. And when I see someone take a bite of dessert, or try out a photo booth costume, or smile as they pick up a favor, well, that makes it all worth it. Creating a party. It's my favorite thing to do, and I'm inviting you, as my guest, to join me in the festivities. I know we're going to have fun. Come--discover your inner party planner! Love, Tori
