Go Green

As I've told you before, I'm definitely a fan of all things small. Cozy abodes with little nooks and crannies, perfect for curling up on the couch with a big down comforter and a Meg Ryan movie—I can't think of anything better. Still, there is such thing as too small. Take my current apartment for example. At 490 square feet, the space feels cramped—and that's just when I'm there. Add my husband and 60-pound pup to the equation and it can be downright claustrophobic.

But… Continue

Dreaming of the Green Life

Everywhere you turn, people are talking about “green.” Maybe it’s because Earth Day was Tuesday, but I’m noticing it even more lately, which I why I’m so excited about our new green-themed issue of Log Home Design. In fact, I got the chance to interview the granddaddy of all environmentalists, Ed Begley, Jr., for our “Chat” department. And, no—I… Continue

Appliances and Faucets and Counters, Oh My!

My husband and I have spent a couple recent weekends house hunting around Northern Virginia. We’re not yet in a place where we can build a custom home, but we’ve still compiled quite a lengthy wants-and-needs list for our prospective home. My husband’s No. 1 must-have is a sizeable kitchen with tons of storage, an island or breakfast bar and gas cooking fuel. The features topping my list? Walk-in closets and a roomy master bath, preferably with a jetted soaking tub.

So when I had the… Continue

cabin fever

Ask anyone I know, and they'll tell you that it’s no secret that I’ve long been a fan of all things tiny. From miniature condiments to miniature ponies (I met some while on my trip to Texas), it’s true that great things really do come in small packages.

And one of my all-time favorite things in the whole wide wee world? Tiny houses. From cozy cottages to the Tumbleweed houses (some come as small as 70 square feet), I just love the… Continue

I'm Ready For My Close-Up...

Last summer, the editors of Log Home Design, aka "the Designing Women," made their way down to lovely Madison, Virginia, for a video tour of catalog giant Plow & Hearth's first shop, called the Country Store.

There we met with Donna Bedwell, product manager of Plow & Hearth and an all-around knowledgeable lady. She told us all about the new innovations in outdoor living and how to create the… Continue

Spring Showers Bring Horrible Allergies

Spring has sprung. It happens the same way every year: I see a lone robin on an early-morning walk with my dog, I spy tiny green buds on the barren trees, and I come down with a month-long cold.

Except it's not really a cold in the full-blown achey-head-stuffy-nose-hacking-cough kind of way. It's seasonal allergies; I just seem to forget that I experience them now. You see, I grew up in Wisconsin, the land of six-month winter weather. Pollen, spores, and the rest of their… Continue

Living on Island Time

To anyone else, the weather would have been perfect—clear and sunny, with a crisp breeze that made the day particularly invigorating. But to this Southern-born girl (who gets chilly when the temperature drops below 80 degrees), "invigorating" is just another word for cold. And cold is something I never expect to be in July. Of course, I was in Wisconsin, just north of the "tension line" (the line that marks the halfway point between the Equator and the North Pole), so perhaps I shouldn't have… Continue
