It’s been more than a bit since I’ve had free time to look at my site, nearly three years! Life has been complicated, wonderful, and unpredictable.
When it starts raining inside your house, you know its probably not going to be a quick or easy fix. In our case, it took several months to find and fix the leak, but we ended up with a huge bonus – a living vertical garden privacy wall and a custom roof deck.
Recently I had to use a vacation day to take my car to the dealer a recalled airbag. Quite possibly the least exciting use of a vacation day ever. But there was a Restore next to the dealership and I had been keeping my eye out for a new kitchen table for my mother-in-law. SheContinue reading “A Table To Dine For”
For our guest room, I wanted to get a piece of furniture with cabinets in addition to drawers for some additional storage. I had been looking at buffets and sideboards on Craigslist for a while but could never find one in decent shape for a few hundred dollars or less.

Now that it is finally starting to get warm out, I’m reminded of summers spent sitting on a Newport, Rhode Island wharf having a cup of chowdah (or chowder, if you’re not from New England). Growing up on the shores of Rhode Island, I have had many bowls of clam and seafood chowdah in my life. IContinue reading “New England Seafood Chowdah (the really good stuff!)”

I found a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter on Amazon and thought I would try using it to make some festive Quesadillas. We’re going to pretend it’s Minnie Mouse instead of Mickey. IContinue reading “Minnie Quesadilla”
