Top 5 Posts of the Week: Mayan Apocalypse Edition!

A thousand years ago, the Mayans supposedly predicted the world would end today, 12/21/12. And so we’ve tried to make the best of what could be our last week here, giving attention to everything from an updated country kitchen to a gingerbread house larger than some big-city apartments. Since all signs point towards the world living to see another day, we figure it may be safe to linger a little while longer on some of our favorite recent posts.
