I just picked up Emily Anderson's book, Eco-Chic Home.  I won't lie, right now I'm only looking at the sections with pictures (what can I say? I'm a visual learner).  But, I'm pretty excited about some of her DIY ideas and home-making advice.  Did you know that adding some lemon juice to a load of laundry bound for line drying can brighten your whites?  I plan to implement some of her ideas in the New Year, and I'll let you all know how it goes!
