THE LILLS VW BUS FAN BELT FIX

Air and oil cooled motors rely on a properly set fan belt. The belt keeps the fan turning, keeping the motor cool and the battery charged so when it gets loose or worn, it’s time to change it out. Our fan belt wasn’t looking so good, so we decided to...

DRIED HERB MIX RECIPE

VINTAGE GREECE BAG

When we picked up this nifty travel bag, we were curious of the name branded on both sides. We looked it up and it turns out the bag is from the 60’s and was made for the Epirotiki Cruise Line. It sure traveled a long way to end up in our hands. We look forward...

The other evening we got a treat day cake pang, so we stayed up late, turned on the lights (and the oven) and got to it! Cooking late night makes for a very nostalgic moment, as we enjoyed a delicious bite of 3am cake and made a toast to the moon. Enjoy the recipe...

VINTAGE FISH BELT

The two of us met while working at Abercrombie and Fitch while on the East coast, back in 2005. We didn’t agree with the brand and it was the last place we ever expected to work, but clearly it was meant to be. One of our family members also worked at A&F,...

FRIEND OR FOOD?

One of us grew up with no dog to be found and the other one of us had dogs and pets of all kinds as a child. When we decided to move in with one another (almost immediately), it didn’t take us long to invite a dog into our own grown up life. It really helped...
