A Designer and an Antiquary’s Remodeled Guesthouses in Reims (Soon Available to Rent)

I have never been to Reims, the city in the Champagne region of France where all of the French kings were once crowned. But, through the magic of Instagram, I’ve spent the last few weeks poring over one of the most classically, quietly lovely projects I’ve seen: a pair of guesthouses and the accompanying family house of the family renovating them, steps from the city’s famous cathedral. It was Instagram that first led me to discover Les Penates Reims: While researching Nomibis—a flea market base...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well! On Ana’s Radar: First up, a co...

5 garden tips for this week, Jan. 19-25

1. Lose the leaves Rose leaves that remain on the plants through winter often succumb to troublesome diseases, such as the powdery-orange rose rust fungus; and the diseases start earlier in the season then spread to infect newer leaves and other plants (such as lawn grasses). So if you haven’t pruned your roses, do so this weekend. And be sure to remove ALL of the old rose leaves (even if you already pruned your roses) in order to have a prettier garden and healthier plants this spring and summe...

Eastern Red Cedars and Christmas Past

Our grown children were scattered hither and yon this Christmas, so Rose and I downsized Yuletide with a raggedy Eastern red cedar, instead of a sculpted Fraser fir. Meanwhile, I stayed merry and bright in a larger sense. I made the rounds in a Santa suit leavened with a puffy pillow. We dug a cedar (Juniperus virginiana)from our Salvisa farm. It had unmistakable charm—even if I was the only one who thought so. There were obvious advantages to our little tree. It was a blessing to be...

New York Court Order Concludes Gun Permit Insufficient Cause for Car Search

Imagine this is what you see in the rearview mirror. U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- An out of state concealed carry permit does not establish sufficient cause to warrant a car search for firearms, a New York judge’s Decision and Order decided Wednesday. Further, the opinion concludes the sworn testimony of the officers involved is not borne out by police video camera and microphone evidence, and a recording from a defendant’s cell phone.“The Court does not find that the search of the Defendant's ca...

How Do We Raise More Farmers?

I may have come across the future of American farming. Mind you, what I found was small-scale farming, but if farming and rural communities are to survive, it may come down to farm internships and incubators to nurture young farmers. When Rose and I were visiting family last month in Bellingham, WA, we went to the Saturday Farmer’s Market. In the midst of vendor stands full of veggie samosas, meat pies, cut flowers and produce, I found Cloud Mountain Farm. Business was booming. We bought plums,...

Rose Hip Tisane

The Nootka rose, a species of wild rose native to the United States A few weeks back, my husband went for a walk in a forested area and brought me back a surprise: Freshly-picked rose hips! He knows that I’m always excited to receive ingredients to use for medicinal purposes, and rose hips are a powerhouse of healthful benefits. Rose hips are the name for the fruit that grows on the rose plant after the flowers have faded. Many people might not realize, but roses are in the family Rosaceae a...

Steal This Look: A Retro Bath on the English Seaside

Ever since we featured The Rose, a new hotel in the seaside town of Deal in East Kent, England, we’ve been thinking of the boldly colorful rooms and baths designed by Harding & Read and stylist Michelle Kelly. The retro-looking bath in Room Seven, a botanical-inspired guest room, particularly caught our attention with its vintage mint green fixtures and French wicker furniture. We were compelled to research it further and here are the sources we’ve unearthed. Above: The bath on the top floor ...

The New Nordic A-Frame: A Flat-Pack Tiny House by BIG

Tight quarters aren’t what you expect from the architect who dubbed his studio BIG (for Bjarke Ingels Group). As Ingels and his friend Søren Rose, the interior designer, tell it, the two Danes about New York were road-tripping in the Catskills when they struck up a conversation about the need among urbanites for country escapes that are both basic and beautiful. Rose, who in addition to running his own design studio is a serial entrepreneur, was so taken with the idea that he launched his latest...

The Rose: A Singular Seaside Inn on the English Coast, Color Edition

The Rose is a just-opened, eight-bedroomed seaside inn in East Kent, England. The owners—who all have holiday homes in the area—had their eye on the run-down High Street boozer for years before taking over the lease last summer. Since then, they have worked in collaboration with interior designers Harding and Read and stylist Michelle Kelly to create a look that is part granny-chic, part @accidentallywesanderson. It is a bold and vibrant interior that has remained true to its origins and the loc...

Daffodil Doodah

Scott Pruitt was scolded recently for flying first class at taxpayers’ expense. The Administrator of the EPA was sent back to coach class for punishment. Do me a favor if you’re squeezed in next to Mr. Pruitt, waiting for your tiny bag of pretzels. Ask him if he has a garden. I feel sorry for lost souls who are disconnected from nature and gardening. An abundantly loved square yard or two is all it takes to get past the velvet rope of Hortus. It’s not hard to grow a few daffodils. And you don’t ...

Steel Magnolias

    “I would rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.” -Robert Harling, Steel Magnolias   Our saucer magnolia had a tiny bit of stamina left, but I didn’t think it was worth saving. Sapsuckers had just about taken the life out of it three years ago. I wanted to cut it down. Rose would have none of it. My buddy the arborist Robert Rollins intervened. He listened to both impassioned sides. His advice: take it easy; give the tree the tree a little time. Robert’s ...
