Hitting a Brick Wall

No-Literally! And several of them -- and unlike the brick found in some of my favorite remodeling shows - this brick is uglier than the snow that is currently falling outside (reminder- IT'S APRIL!).  I'm continuously racking my brain with an idea on how to salvage or showcase it, but beside it being ugly it's… Continue reading Hitting a Brick Wall

With or Without You Spring

Apparently Spring did not get the memo that we have officially "sprung ahead" and have arrived in the spring season here in MN, because there is snow in the forecast and snow still on the ground.  Never assume that a season is here (or over) in MN - it will only lead to planning mishaps… Continue reading With or Without You Spring

Holy Cornbread Batman

Actually it's jalapeno cornbread....but close enough.
