I asked my husband if we could do that to our bedroom.

You suggest that your husband would feel better if he did not buy parts for his telescope but instead just saved his money to buy you Carter and Holmes gift certificates for you upcoming birthday

Your furnace breaks in the winter and the one functioning space heater you own goes in the orchid growing room in the basement, not the bedroom.

Go into Williams-Sonoma for a madeline pan and instead look at their shelving and think, "this would be perfect to house my orchids."

Go into JoAnn fabrics and The Container store for organizing solutions--for your orchid supplies.

.....the only thing you use the living room for is reading the newspaper, and housing your orchids.

Now why didn't I think of that? Can't remember when the telescope last saw the light of day (or night)

If...The best part of your day was finding out one of your MySpace Apps now sells 3 kinds of orchids in their "store". What makes it even better is, you don't have to spend real money!!! I just bought 30!

I've actually seen something like that done! I have a gardening book from the 70's with a picture of a central courtyard roofed with glass bricks, in New York, I think. The house forms the walls of the courtyard with big windows and sliding glass doors looking into the courtyard. There's a pathway and beds full of tree ferns and palms and all kinds of other non-orchids.

Imagine what you could do with orchids in a space like that!!!

That's part of the design of my dream house!

....your study breaks consist of going to a greenhouse to look at orchids.

....your dorm room mysteriously becomes filled with orchids, backbulbs, and cuttings.

....you save juice bottles, plastic cups, and other clear plastic containers because you think they can be used for orchid containers.
