Readers, strap on your tool belts. This week, in honor of Mother’s Day, we’re embracing the can-do spirit.
- For this week’s Restaurant Visit, we’re saluting the layered design of Navy, a new restaurant in NYC that’s all about indigo and artful uses of Army Navy surplus.
- Looking for an easy, unobtrusive way to air dry laundry? Meet the pulley system known as the Sheila Maid, spotlighted in Megan’s Tuesday Object Lessons column.
- Just wait: even if you’ve never coveted a toolbox, you will when you have a look at Izabella’s 10 Easy Pieces. (Next, you’re likely to start considering Tools as Decor.)
