The Basement Project: Installing DRIcore SMARTWALL

Yesterday, I talked about our basement renovation – and how DRIcore SMARTWALL is a big part of it.  You guys probably remember the “before” of my basement. It was something.  Something that was the opposite of cozy. Something that screamed, “Store stuff down here and forget it exists! This is not a place for humans!”…

The Basement Project: Using SMARTWALL

Our basement project is coming along. With the distractions of the the projects that wait for us on the main floor, our timeline has stretched a bit longer than we had anticipated.

Things are getting a bit “witchy” around here…

It’s hard to believe that we’re already talking Hallowe’en.  Or is it?  Little pop-up costume shops are appearing all over town. Lucy has changed her mind at least three times on her costume: “I’m going to be a pirate. No – a ghost. No wait! A teddy bear….” Okay. How am I going to make…

Edison Light Bulb - Fixture  - Suburble.com-1

Lights on the wall that are light in the pocketbook…

You’d think that choosing light fixtures wouldn’t be that hard. With most things-related-to-decor, I can walk into a shop and immediately know: “Yes, I like this.” or, “No, this is hideous. Burn it, please.”   But lighting?  Lighting stumps me.  In the words of my mother, “Tara… NOBODY is looking up. They just want to be…

The Reality of Renovating

I made a necklace to commemorate the purchase – and renovation – of our new house. I didn’t include a tutorial for it, but if you love the charms like I do, you can get them from here.   When we bought the house, so many moons ago, we gave ourselves a timeline of a month. …

Curried Bean and Carrot Soup – My Take on the Mulligatawny

I know that it’s probably sinful to say this, but I’m ready for Fall.  I like the crisp air. I love rainboots. And sweaters are really just the most perfect article of clothing ever invented. Second to the yoga pant, of course.  But now it’s time to start taking soups. Big hearty soups – the kind…

Crabbing - Suburble.com-1

Say what? August is over!?!?

 See that little silhouette out there?  That’s Mr. Suburble – crabbing.  Even though I’m not a big fan of food from the sea, I did feel a bit bad for him when his attempts to be a hunter/gatherer and forage for  his food were unsuccessful.  Am I the only one who cannot believe that the…
