The day I made a couch

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Man, Baxter should totally be a dog model.  Just look at him.  Perfection in a dappled coat. This morning we went to Kari’s studio and finished putting the rest of the Ikea bounty together, which included that nice-a couch pictured above.  We brought the dogs with us (also, pictured above – Charlie was doing something […]

Pizza, beer, making furniture

Last weekend we went to Ikea to get stuff for Kari’s new studio.  This weekend comes the inevitable downside: that shit doesn’t build itself.  So, tonight we stopped by the Brewmaster’s Tavern in Williamsburg to take advantage of their deal of two pizzas and a growler of beer for $20.  I would post a link […]
