I was a little surprised when a friend told me last week not to miss the Plywood exhibit at the V&A in London. It is not a subject I particularly cared about, but I left thinking it’s a miracle material.

While Robert and I would rather have been at the beach, we decided to take an excursion to Hudson, New York, on a rainy Sunday. The town is always a place for inspiration. There are so many interesting objects (and some awful ones as well) that it is like going on a scavenger hunt. While I was not looking for anything in particular, it was fun to simply identify things I liked.

As I begin my own kitchen remodel (the first in many, many years), I’ve been thinking quite a bit about kitchens. Selecting cabinets should come first, but I have chosen to focus on the thing I know best and use most: the kitchen sink.

It has been a while since I have visited a museum but last weekend I had the chance to go to the recently expanded Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. While my time was limited, I was able to view many interesting artifacts and objects and the exceptional ancestral home of the Huang family ensconced within the museum.
