Japanese mailboxHi, I’m Kimberly and welcome to Kimberly At Home. I am married to Naoto and we have a cat, Presley. We live in a (mostly) remodeled 1970s apartment in Forest Park–a near-suburb of Chicago. I run a small handmade greeting card business, Galaxie Safari.  I enjoy drinking coffee and creating cocktails, crafting with paper and embroidery, writing letters (Letter Writers Alliance Member No. 876), taking naps, eating at old Italian delis (Freddy’s is my favorite), reading old novels, gardening at the Forest Park Community Garden, traveling and antiquing.

    I just found your blog through Holly from So Dang Brilliant. I love your honest story about having hairy arms! Wonderful!

    How did you like Handy Vito? We’re in Oak Park and need some flooring and plumbing work done in our bathroom. Thanks!

  3. Dina says:

    Also, where did you get your flooring? Or at least what brand is it? Thanks!

  4. Dina says:

    Okay, now, we are now thinking seriously about doing an Ikea kitchen. So what did you use for countertop material? Handy Vito didn’t install the cabinets but did everything else?

      Hi Dina! Vito only cut out the wall for us. Ikea’s contractors built and installed the cabinets and the granite counter tops and my dad (with a tiny bit of help from us) did everything else (flooring, painting, plumbing, etc.)

    We would like to know more about the vintage relish dish you got as a gift. We have one and would like to know more about it.

      Hi Al & Lorraine!
      I’m sorry but I don’t know very much about it. I know it’s vintage, but it didn’t come with any information or markings–just good ol’ American cut glass I assume 🙂
