Happy New Year, dear friends. We have been away working, moving, and more. Lots of good things to look forward to in 2018. We have moved up to an old railroad station in a small river town just north of our old studio in Frenchtown N.J. Its a beauty. Right now it’s more demo than reno, but we’ll get there by spring (crossed fingers). Then Canal House can come to life. Today we are eating beans—saving our shekels—with ham. Our luxury was a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, a gift from our friend Peggy Knickerbocker. She is part of that gang that makes the elixir with Paul Bertolli. So pearls and burlap…kind of like us.
