    Just throwing it out there. Everyone on SF needs a Tumblr to post all these beautiful pictures. Grenadine or not. SF should link with Tumblr. Hah.

    Oh she is. She's older than me by 5 years but the fact she's more mature than anyone my age (26) gives her the upper-hand. She does dress like a teenager though. I keep telling her to go to Luxeswap and pick up some awesome ladies stuff. Or that I'd pay for it. But nooooo. She likes her Sperrys.

    PP: Today's Hober is the royal blue grenadine fina (standard 4-fold construction). Won't be SF-approved but it brightens up an otherwise dreary day here in the ATL.

    Definitely works with that ensemble. Nicely done.

    Just slightly off topic, but still quite relevant.

    A few years back I had a tie rack custom made, much like the one pictured in the link. It houses 168 ties and goes 2 deep, as needed. In the master closet, it literally goes from floor to ceiling. I have found, for me, it is the best way to pick out a tie each morning, in terms of knowing what I have, and actually remembering.

    Before rolling a tie for storage, I allow it to hang for at least 24 hours after a wear.

    Attaboy! And when you reach the end, buy more, and then fit them in while restarting. That's my plan.

    mrjester: You should take a picture of that.

    Perhaps I'll get around to it, but, for now, if you go to the link and scroll down to the third picture (the one with the washer/dryer), mine is strikingly similar, in terms of color and the fact mine goes 6 across.

    So here's how to use this tool for fixing thread pools on grenadines: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1389517282&pf_rd_i=507846

    What you do is simple: take the needle and insert it into the tie as close to the pulled thread as you can place it. Then push the needle through the tie. The textured end of the needle grabs the thread and pulls it into the tie. Done.

    A wall of ties, bought by probably mostly SF approval.

    Yeah I want a picture. Badly. Not for validation, to bring the awesomeness of any thread you post it in, to 11.
