Gone Fishin'

HEY!

I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!

Home Improvement: Little Details

A quick and easy project that we did right away was to replace most of the switch-plate covers in the house. The covers that came with the house had been accumulated over the years and most of them had either a cat theme or a lighthouse theme.  Except for the one in the bathroom that was all seashells and plaster and the one in the hall that looked like a piano keyboard. These were probably fine in the context of the owner's things, but in an empty house, they really stuck out.  Kate likes brushed nickel, so we went with brushed nickel covers for replacements..
