My Ten Fingers Stepper arrived today from Sippican Cottage Furniture, built, painted, and distressed just for me by Mr. Sippican himself.

Gorgeous solid wood furniture to take away my IKEA blues, with its own story attached, built by a guy who writes, and I mean writes, not just blogs, on the side? Sign me up. Not a minute too soon for this piece, either, as I spent the weekend hopping on and off chairs to reach my high cabinets containing the cakemaking stuff for The Little Bean’s birthday. The Bean and I will both get use out of this one for years to come.


  1. And how did the birthday pool cake & decor go over? Wish I could’ve been there. :-(

  2. He enjoyed eating the orange five-ball cupcakes very much!

  4. It’s very gratifying to read this. You send this stuff out into the world, grateful for the money and so forth, of course; but it’s people telling me that the things become part of the fabric of their everyday lives, and it brings them a little happiness to own and use them that keeps me plugging away at the saw. And the keyboard, now that you mention it.

    Thanks. And happy birthday, Little Bean. Don’t worry about your name; at our house, we have a Little Troll.
