This post is a tough one in that I have to admit I have too many clothes (specifically t-shirts) and make an attempts to reduce my wardrobe down to only the bare necessities. I think this minimalist post, more than any of the others, makes it clear that minimalism isn’t for everyone and that’s OK. [...]

It's not too early to be thinking about next year's calendar. Before you rush out and buy anything, consider one of Transglobal Emporium's marvellous Luxury Shed Calendars which contains key dates such as National Shed Week as well as useful reminders about looking after your shed through the year. Maybe we should ask them to do a Garden Office Calendar for 2010?

The Caravan Gallery

The Caravan Gallery is a mobile exhibition venue and visual arts project run by artists Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale who record ordinary and extraordinary details of life in 21st century Britain. As they say: "Eager to examine clichés and cultural trends, they are particularly drawn to absurd anomalies and curious juxtapositions, typical of places in transition and in the process of reinventing themselves." This is how they describe the Caravan Gallery itself: "The Caravan Gallery, a diminutive mustard model (circa 1969), with white walls and beech floor on the inside (like a ‘real’ gallery), provides the perfect setting for an evolving exhibition of photographs made in response to places visited; at any one venue, location-specific work arising from a previous research visit is exhibited alongside other material from the Caravan Gallery archive." The Caravan Gallery exhibits at an eclectic range of locations, rural, urban and suburban, from small-scale community events to major festivals and venues. The site - which explains their other work, including some unusual surveys - is well worth having a good nose around.

Apparently that's the criminal code for fraud in Nigeria. (I've been pretty good about keeping all the posts on this blog related to the house, so - to keep that streak alive - let's call this post a follow-up to Dr. Fred's inquiry about visiting on his [...]

No excuses here - I have been extremely slack on posting to the Miller Barter House blog.  As the previous entry mentioned we received our CO on Friday 9.19.2008.  We still have a bit of cleaning to do inside and outside of the house once the trim crew finishes, the painters finish, the landscaping is [...]

The 72-Room Bohemian Dream House "The building at 190 Bowery is a mystery: a graffiti-covered Gilded Age relic, with a beat-up wooden door that looks like it hasn’t been opened since La Guardia was mayor. A few years ago, that...
