Raised Bed Garden Project for Spring 2015

New project this spring that is up and running–an elevated vegetable garden table planter! After a good amount of research, I found this awesome mom-and-pop company in Cali, called Mini Farm Box, that makes all kinds of planters using cedar.

How to get your dumplings really … bitchy

New Pinterest Board — Style Crush!

I get occasional hints at work and shopping g-friends that I tend to buy the same version of whatever dress or shirt or skirts that I already have. My response is always, “Well it’s because I know what will work and what won’t for my shape and height!” That said, they have a point…

  • POSTSHOW: Ballston Craft Market, RocknRomp

    A post-show recap is due… it was fun! but it was tiring. Our day started at 7am and ended at 6:30pm. Admittedly we were kind of miserable when we first got there. It was dreary, cold and wet. Debbie RocknRomp had just informed us that the music part of the event was up in the… Read more »

  • MousyBabe Makes Rings Too

    So imoM is mostly a tribute to our dad’s artwork. After all, he did all the work, and we’re just exploiting it :-O But to add to the family jewels, Em recently rediscovered how to make these beaded rings that our mom taught us to make when we were little. I was pretty shocked she… Read more »

Here’s some pictures from our humble booth last September. It was our first… Read more »
