Of course now that I've "donated" my catalog to one of the "Lesser developed parts of the country" I will have to bite the bullet and brave the craziness that is the parking lot for IKEA and a 1000 other stores to see what all the hoopla is about! Hey TIG, did you get YOURS yet??...

Stephen, I agree with you 100%. Common sense seems to have flown out the window with most people these days (no pun intended, well maybe!). She was approx. 25ish! And Joe, those windows were a b-word to wash, but boy did it look beautiful from the front door to the backyard!

Does anyone know anything about the neighborhood in the movie "Three Wishes"? I've watched the movie many times just to see the houses, although the cars and clothes the characters wear are pretty cool too! I'm unable to tell if the houses are real or if the street is a set. Any information would be...
