spice rack

Our kitchen is very small. Our spice use is very large. We love beautiful organization. Here is the result!

We made the holder from scrap wood and the canisters were scavenged at the Axman, our local reuse store. With a little epoxy, magnets and some labels, voila! Our spice rack was up and on the cheap.

We have metal cabinets so we recessed rare earth magnets in the spice rack and glued them in place. The spice racks go up and come down with a satisfying thwak. The lids are glued into the wood but the jars twist off.

Hugo's novel

Hugo recently finished writing a novel. 50,000+ words, I understand.
Yesterday I received some mail. It contained Hugo's first draft of the novel, in miniature form. The container is 1.5"x 1.5". The words are completely illegible! But it's here, all of it. Unbelievable.
Congratulations, Hugo.

The Story of my Cats

We got a new kitten, and it has been interesting integrating her with our family. We have 2 other cats. One is about 15 years old, and the other is my little prince. He's about 5 years old. He's so spoiled, so I wasn't sure how he would take having a cute little kitten in the house. Here are some photos that show their budding friendship.
