Change that case – don’t feel guilty

on
My older daughter probably has more covers for her iPhone than I have teeth in my head, and that has always bothered me. It seems like such a waste from an environmental standpoint. (I, on the other hand, have kept the same one for years.) But if you like changing up your iPhone 4 or […] [Read More]

Head out for a picnic

on
This durable basket is perfect for a picnic for two – under the stars, at an outdoor concert, or even a day at the beach. What I like about is that it comes with just about everything you would need, (except the food and drinks, of course,) so you wouldn’t be tempted to use any […] [Read More]

Is there really a better dessert in the thick of summer than one that’s frozen? Probably not. Homemade sorbets, granitas and tried-and-true full fat, lusciously creamy ice cream can prove the perfect complement to a mid-summer dinner, while allowing you to add only the ingredients you choose.

Creative Distractions: Etsy Blog

on
I subscribe to Etsy’s blog and I thought I was clever when I set it up so that all those emails would go into a separate folder in the email inbox. That was until I looked over the other day and found that that inbox was chock-a-block full with over 500 email/new blog posts! I […] [Read More]

On My Mind: Plastic and Pasta

on
Plastic. Man’s best invention or worst? I say both. It’s invention revolutionized many industries from medical to food service (and everything in between) and yet it has also trained us into believing in the disposability of almost all goods- which, of course, leads to waste! Practically everything you buy is either made from plastic or […] [Read More]

Woodsy or beachy?

on
Woodsy or beachy – this gorgeous Driftwood Chandelier from Terrain in Westport could play it either way to suit your decor. Twined branches of sandblasted grapewood house nine candelabra bulbs, (each a maximum of 60 watts.) At 16 inches high and 25 inches in diameter, it would fit comfortably above either a dining room table […] [Read More]

My Headboard, Part 1

on
One of my new year’s resolutions – or rather my grand “To-Do” list for 2013 is to make a headboard for my bed. The material I’ll be using is recycled billboard vinyl donated by my lovely friend and former business partner, Day, who runs www.GG2G.com. (Find them on Facebook to see all the exciting things happening for them.) I’ve […] [Read More]
