Monday Feature: Blog of the Week!

Blog of the Week:
Description: "It's all about the thrill of the hunt and cruisin' the backroads looking for the next great pick. Rummaging through barns, flea markets, shops and yard sales to find lost treasures is only part of the adventure. Next comes the challenge of restoring and repurposing the vintage finds into new creations with updated uses. Chippy, painted or rusty 'junk' is what gets my pulse racing, and my favorite finds are old porch posts, corbels, mantles, doors, chandeliers, lamps, mirrors, and unusual hardware. But the real story, which always transcends the pickin', is about the interesting people, and the unique places waiting to be discovered along the way!"

Why We Love It: The blog offers a unique twist to do-it-yourself projects. The ordinary is turned extraordinary with a few simple suggestions; she turns yard sale and flea market trash into home decor treasure. It's like a before and after renovation show--she posts pictures of the "junk" she finds and later posts the fantastic finished projects. She also posts fun pictures of the different fairs she attends and her favorite finds there.

Monday Feature: Blog of the Week!

As the weather down the Jersey Shore grows colder, some of our favorite winter activities are making a reappearance--like curling up next to the fire with a few good books!
Our Blog of the Week is an homage to this winter pastime.

Blog of the Week: 'I've been reading lately'

About the Author:  Levi Stahl is a Chicago-based blogger in the publishing industry. He explains: "Most of what I do with my time is read, and that's what fuels this blog. I work in publishing, but this blog is entirely separate from my job. I do sometimes write about books published by my employer without identifying them as such, but if you're a regular reader, I figure you know my tastes well enough by now to trust me."

Why we Love it: This isn't your usual blog of book reviews. It includes the well-known classics, little-known treasures, and inside information on upcoming releases. Instead of just plain plot summary on lots of books, this blog provides insightful commentary on passages, authors, and the publishing world as a whole.
Why you would Love it: If you're tired of reading the same old books, or just need a new perspective on your old favorites, this blog is perfect. Be in the know about the newest authors and books, and share in a fellow book-lover's hobby of discussing literature. You know you can trust him--his experience speaks for itself.

Mark on Call

Created by interior designer Mark Lewison, and based on his book What Would You Do With This Room? My 10 Foolproof Commandments to Great Interior Design, Mark On Call lets you plan, preview and carry out your room's design while staying organized and within budget. Price: $2.99

The entertaining historical video, "Boardwalk Ballyhoo: The Magic of Atlantic City," is shown continuously throughout the day.

Al Gold was born in Philadelphia in 1902 and came to Atlantic City for his health. His foray in photography began in 1921 when he photographed the first Miss America pageant. His photographic skills became widely known and in 1939 he was appointed Atlantic City's first Chief Photographer, a post he held until his death in 1964. "Goldie," as he was affectionately known by all was one of the most popular news photographers in the East.
