The Hastings Farmers Market

Our local and favorite farmers market in Hastings-On-Hudson, NY was featured today on The Today Show. It really makes Saturday mornings (and life in the suburbs) that much better. My friend Sarah Silbert Hinawi is a fantastic local musician and is interviewed in the piece. Check it out:

Kitchen Update, pt. 3

The countertops are coming tomorrow, the countertops are coming tomorrow! I thought it was going to take at least a week, but Jay came to template on Monday and will be back tomorrow to put them in.

Ron, one half of The Kitchen Couple, and his crew finished up the cabinet install on Tuesday and I love the way they turned out. Because we're in an old house none of our walls are square and they had to make lots of tweaks to fit things in and you can't tell - they look perfect. Ron spent most of the day constructing a corner cabinet - it's not something Ikea stocked, but he was able to take a basic cabinet and modify it so it fits perfectly. I think we have at least double the cabinet space now!

Note about these photos - my son took them, so they're a little off center, but I like his low to the ground perspective.

Cabinets are in!

Another customized cabinet - fits perfectly and will be great for tea and spices

Video Fun

A friend just told me about this site. They don't have a big music selection, but I like the way this turned out.

Kitchen Update, pt. 2

So I've been taking a ton of photos every day and realized after looking at them in flickr that they're really boring - especially if it's not your kitchen being redone. So here are three, maybe four (ok, five) highlights. Cabinets are being installed today, appliances coming next week and countertop the week after. We're getting close!


Before photo - I'm going to miss that table!

Wordle!

I found out about Wordle from Crummy Cupcake. (I also follow her on twitter.) It makes a word cloud from your blog tags. My favorite part is customizing the colors and fonts. Pretty, right?
