Ahhhh…. I needed that break. Thanks for hanging out and waiting ever so patiently for my return. I hate to say all the cliche’d things like I had to catch up on things around the house and I’ve been so busy, but they are true.
So, one of my obsessions with managing a blog is to see what my stats are. Where people are coming from, what search terms they use to find me, etc. Well, a few of the most popular terms are “how tall is Anthony Carrino?”, “Anthony Carrino”, “is Anthony Carrino married?’ (no!) and “Kitchen Cousins”.
Crazy to think that just a few months ago, I didn’t know any of you and you didn’t know me, and now there are 500 people on Facebook that “like” my little blog. To celebrate, I’m giving one of you a present! I pondered this giveaway for a while now, and I think that it […]
Hi Strangers!! It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve sat down to write a post. Well, at least at my desk. I posted once from on the road, and it was harder than it seemed since for 90% of the trip we didn’t have internet! As I said in my last post, for the […]
The List – the hypothetical list of (usually famous) people that you would get a free pass from your spouse to cheat with. Usually the list is made up of people you don’t know, and will most likely never run into on a daily basis, therefore making it safe to assume it won’t happen. I’m […]
Okay, not really slacking completely, but nothing is getting completed around here. For example, I am laying the groundwork for a vegetable garden.

I am usually on time to everything – but barely. That is, except when I travel to see my father in Miami – then I’m always late. Seems I underestimate the time it will take to get there, or the traffic is terrible, or my kids forget something halfway down the road to the turnpike […]
After many months of going to my favorite thrift store and coming home with many treasures, my husband wanted to see what was so great about the place. Yesterday, he finished work early and we headed over. I have to say, he wasn’t really impressed at first. But then I dragged him around and showed […]
The other day, I posted about some projects I needed to finish in this post. One of which was my son’s chair. This one… I think I picked it up at the thrift store for $5. Not a single piece of caning was broken, and even though the fabric on the cushion was faded, it was […]
Fabric Spray Paint – Questions and Answers The response to my post about this chair has been kind of crazy, with more visits than any of my other posts so far. Pretty exciting for me – so thanks! After a couple hundred questions, I’ve tried to answer the ones that have re-occured the most on […]
