Life has been busier than ever for us – and there’s nothing like having a baby to confirm your true priorities. We’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately: what exactly are our goals? What are we working towards? Hoping to gain? The answer, we realized, was definitely not more blog hits or traffic or approval. Honestly we both feel unsettled by the idea of our blog growing any larger, and we look fondly back on the earlier days when we worked less, slept more, and spent more quality time with our family and friends. This little website of ours has already surpassed every expectation we ever could have had for it....

The following was written by Victoria Major, repurposing contributor for Brooklyn Limestone.Hi Everybody! Victoria here from Confessions of a New OldHome Owner, back again with another re-purposing / up-cycle project.For a while now I have been collecting these wooden Dutch shoes from Holland. I’ve bought them from thrift stores and yard sales for never more than a dollar or two and some for even as little as a quarter. I actually have the pair that my great grandmother used to wear as a little girl when she lived in Sweden, and some of them are really quite colorful. Needless to say I think they are pretty cool and deserve some sort of display of honor. So I gathered my little stockpile and set to work....

Perhaps I should actually make the title of this post, "You Know Your House is a Hot Mess When..." It's no secret that Alex and I have been a bit preoccupied over the last several months. Between our day jobs, Lulu's battle against cancer, subsequent surgery, then radiation, and now surgery for Mel this week to remove a cyst on his side, two teeth, and a mass in his mouth, we're finding it difficult to carve out time for our serious home renovation projects....

 The WINTER THAT WILL NOT DIE is passing at last! Time to do more work on the house!There were colonnades between the two front rooms sometime in the past, but they have been gone as long as anyone alive could recall, because the floor settled and the doors wouldn't stay closed.I had a set lined up about the time I bought the place but some SOB did me out of them, so the search has been on ever since. Through an interesting set of circumstances I wound up with colonnades for the front rooms. Although dirty, the price was right and the finish is reasonably decent, and is a close enough match to what's in the front rooms they will look pretty sharp....

Have you ever read something on the internet and wondered if it’s too good to be true? Well last weekend we noticed the chrome on our bikes had started to rust over the snowy winter. I remembered a tip/trick I had read in an email forward about Coca Cola 5 years ago (hopefully the peak of email forwards)....

Last week, Jill sent me a You Tube link and told me to check it out. It had 31 MILLION hits. That’s this many: 31, 000, 000. It showed a guy popping a boil on his back. Apparently there’s a huge audience for this kind of pussy spectacle. In fact, you can find just about any gross subject on You Tube: if it can be imagined by the human mind, somebody has filmed it. But let’s consider the spectacle of a man popping a festering boil on his back. Why should 31 million people find this of interest? Most of us have known somebody, like a childhood friend, who was proud of showing off the marble-sized booger he extracted from his nose or the cheesy chunk of pumpkin-colored wax he pulled from his ear or the coin-sized scab he peeled from the cut on his knee....

I don't know about you, but when I'm nearing the end of a big project a couple things happen...I get antsy to finish it, I start thinking about what's next, and counter-intuitively - I slow down.  It's not exactly that I lose interest, I think it's just that the devil is in the details, and by the time I get to the punch list - it's a %$&^*@# million little devils, most of them painting (which I hate)....
