I appreciate the kind welcomes to the blog neighborhood from Food for Thought and The Roving Home and Amy Meier Design and 5th Joy.  Yikes.  Now I need to live up to their expectations . . . .

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of spending time with the blogging women behind these sites.  On one of the few sunny days here in Rockport this Spring, Heather Atwood (Food for Thought) and I got to show off Howlets, Heather’s and David Rabin’s 1911 granite house on the tip of Cape Ann.  I felt like I was among the power circle of the design blogosphere. Hopefully, a bit of their ability to write with perception and wit rubbed off on me.

Watching the reaction on their faces when they caught the Howlets “fever” was immensely gratifying.  The facial expressions ranged from jaw drops to big smiles.
