My New Products at The Home Depot and Kitchen Week Is Almost Here!

I’m so excited to announce two new products that I’ve added to my kitchen line, available exclusively at The Home Depot! The first is my all-new, beautiful assortment of Quartz countertops, designed by me and produced by LG Hausys Viatera! The styles are inspired by beautiful, natural marble, and were designed to emulate the depth and varied patterns of natural stone. These countertops are as stunning to look at as they are practical and affordable! I’m also adding the new kitchen cabinet door styles, Tipton and Gardner, to my kitchen line. These new textured PureStyle™ cabinets have the distinct look and feel of genuine wood with the added benefit of PureStyle™ trademark durability! I love these new doors and I know you will too!

The project of designing or remodeling your kitchen can be quite overwhelming, so I’ve included a gallery of photos showcasing these two new beautiful products in actual settings. I hope they inspire you and help you to envision your project with greater clarity.  For even more inspiration, be sure to follow me on Twitter, Facebook,, Instagram and SiriusXM Stars 109 during Kitchen Week (September 15 - 21) – a week designed to teach, inspire and help you create the perfect kitchen! You might even win a $1000 Home Depot gift card, so follow me and stay tuned in!

Around The Farm in August

Despite the fairly mild temperatures throughout the northeast this summer, everything on the farm is producing nicely and thriving, including the fruit-bearing trees, the vegetables and even the animals! Please take a few minutes to take a quick tour around the farm with me and enjoy the fruit of yet another successful summer season.

My 2014 Maine Vacation, Part 2 - Planters

One of my favorite areas at my home in Maine is the outdoor terrace, where I feature beautiful antique pots and planters.  All the planters are all filled with plant material that I propagate at my greenhouse in Bedford. A trailer, filled with tropical plants from Bedford, is driven to Maine for intensive planting on Memorial Day weekend. This year I planted pots in an entirely new fashion from years before. Every pot has performed beautifully and I’m happy to share these pictures with you.
