My Side Project Comes Alive

I've been working on another website off-and-on for quite some time.  Over the last few weeks I've been spending all of my free time getting it in shape and Ready for Prime Time.  Well, I think it finally is. is going to be a site containing all kinds of resources for people looking to decorate and remodel (respectfully, of course) their classic American homes.  For now, it only has one featured home, which happens to be one of my favorite examples of how to remodel a bungalow, Portland's own Bungalowcious.  I have also added a directory of artisan lighting, ceramics, and textiles.
If you own a home that is at or near the end of a remodel and would like it considered for a feature on the site, drop me a line.  I'm also open to any thoughts or suggestions about the site.

Stanley 2 Gallon Wet-Dry Vac Giveaway

Update: We have a winner!  Congratulations Aidan, I hope this little guy proves useful.

Once again, I have been provided with a great prize to give away to one of my readers. This time, CSN Stores told me I could give away a Stanley 2-Gallon Wet/Dry vac. It looks like a great little portable unit that can be used to cleanup after those small projects that seem to crop up all the time, like cleaning up all that dog hair that accumulates in the corners or under your home office furniture.

I'll make the rules the same as when I gave away the mailbox.

On March 11, 2011, I will randomly choose one person from my list of followers.  To add yourself to the list, just click the "Follow" button in the right sidebar of this page.  Do it now! The winner will be responsible for paying any taxes or fees that might apply (like, for instance if you live in Canada).  Shipping is free, so don't worry about that.  Good luck!
