Craft Bookcases

My mom painted the bookcases for my craft room for me. I think that they're going to be really cute against the lime walls!

Colonel Mustard, in the Library

We've always wanted a library. We're using the front living room as a library because how many people actually use their front living room? We eventually want to get two of these recliners for the room.

Thanks to Abe for the beautiful bookends from the New York Public Library. Patience and Fortitude were one of our favorite sites in New York City, so we love seeing them every day. And to the left are my library labels. You can purchase them from

Craft Room: From Drab to Muppet

There are two slanted walls in the craft room, which were painted dark navy for some reason. It made you feel really closed in (HGTV says to paint them the same color as your walls, and not too dark so they look further away). So my step-mom Linda and I painted them lime green. At first I was worried that it was going to be too bright but I love it. Tomorrow I'm going to paint some bookcases fuschia and turquoise. So how long do you think it'll take me to regret these colors? I think that it's going to be a fun, vibrant, and creative space. Stay tuned for updates!

Balls of Fury

Heinz and his friend Michael tried out the ping pong table that we got from my dad.

Our New Cars

Heinz's Nissan Altima

My Honda CRV. I had wanted a red one, but I guess that if I had gotten it people would think that we were Alabama fans. Heinz said that we got Air Force-colored cars instead.


Last month this cat showed up at my mom's house. She told me that it had a mask around its eyes, so I suggested that she name it Zorro. But I didn't realize that it was a KITLER!! For more, visit
