I Run on Dunkin

I will admit it right now, to you, here on the Internet, that I am addicted to the delicious iced tea produced by the little purple and orange roadside stops between here and everywhere, called Dunkin Donuts.  Not being a coffee drinker, having a Dunkin Donuts habit is fairly new to me – say, since […]

Pie Fail!

We are taking part in a CSA this year for the first time ever. It’s from a local farm just down the street from us (or, as per my new bike computer, approximately 2.6 miles from our house).  Tomorrow we get our third installment of the 10-week program.  Above is week two’s bounty. It’s exactly […]

Just so you know…

Banjo and I are friends again.  And I threw out the carpet!

Small sunny joys

It’s been all doom, gloom and a big rainy mess in these parts for what feels like almost all of June.  I caught a small bit of sun in pictures during this stormy, rainy period we’ve been having (and apparently will endure for several more days.  Ick). I’m trying to see if I can turn […]

Did you have to?

I think Banjo and I are fighting.  You might wonder how I could be mad at this precious, crazy specimen of a dog with floppy ears and an eager tongue….  Well, I’ll tell you why.  One day last week, Little B busted into the craft room, went straight over to my carpet, and decided to […]

Craft room makeover – part 5

Things are starting to come together with the old craft room.  Are you sick of hearing about it yet?  Never fear… it’s ALMOST done. In the process of getting digital subscriptions to bunches of magazines, there are now hundreds of these old translucent plastic magazine holders available at work.  It’s been on my to-do list […]

I want to ride my bicycle

It’s been a while since I last posted, and I know I’ve failed to keep you up to date on the craft room progress. Partly that’s because I’ve been busy, and partly because progress in craft room land has essentially slowed to a stop.  All that’s left to move back in are the awful odds […]

Sugar Fix

I woke up this morning to a gloomy, rainy day.  In contrast to yesterday’s beautiful 65 + sunny spring day of re-potting plants, cleaning out garden beds, and a lovely evening with good friends, today’s weather has left me unmotivated and uninspired. Huh.  Must change that, I suppose. I’ve considered going back to bed, but […]

Small Craft Room Enhancement

I’ve been getting the urge to redo my entire craft room from top to bottom. During the 4 years we’ve lived in this house, I’ve try to bring this place to a place more our style and, well, century.  We steamed and stripped wallpaper in almost every room, repainted surfaces in most spots (sometimes twice!), […]

Need Suggestions…

I need to (finally) make a bag to go with this coat (that is 2 years old) that is winter/snow appropriate and I need your help!  I’m finding it a tough color to match to. This pink bag is no longer in my possession, but I find these fabrics a little too springy for the […]
