I’m Kate Moore, and I’m the proprietor of this establishment. Graphic designer-furniture maker-entrepreneur-DIY superhero by day, and…basically the same thing by night, with some cooking thrown in. I created this blog to share my work, my insights on design and DIY, and the delicious recipes I stumble across in my daily travels.
Weight: depends whether I’ve found any really great bread recipes lately

Tall, somewhat-awkward twentysomething design addict exhibits magpie-like hoarding tendencies and an uncanny ability to say precisely the wrong thing in uncomfortable situations. Enjoys laziness, food, animals that aren’t food, rearranging furniture while husband is out of the house/sleeping, attempting to garden for about 6 weeks at the beginning of every summer, purchasing own weight in design magazines, revamping Goodwill clothes/furniture, the French word for “grapefruit,” appallingly bad movies, indie music, CB2, spelling n’ grammar, books where people fall in love and then something terrible happens and it looks like they won’t ever see each other again but then wait! everything turns out okay, Pepsi One, watching other people play interesting video games, Scrabble, midnight baking, fall, canceled television shows (see: Arrested Development, Pushing Daisies), DIY blogs, Harry Potter, rainy days in the summer, trenchcoats, every color except Pepto-Bismol pink, vintage chairs, Wikipedia-hopping.
Dislikes Facebook oversharers, reality television, social injustice, loud upstairs neighbors, and many other trappings of modern life.
