Green Demolitions A Kitchen and Demolition Donation Program

On Sunday my husband, who is a builder and I visited Green Demolitions in Norwalk CT.  Green Demolitions is a donation program for Recovery Unlimited, a non-profit organization supporting an addiction recovery program.  Green Demolitions offers FREE demolition based on quality of cabinets and countertops, brand and the age of appliances.

The store, which is really a warehouse (See above video) has everything from kitchen sinks, tubs vanities, lighting fixtures and tables to really beautiful custom kitchen cabinetry.  Some of the items are brand new with tags still on like an Acrylic Tub which would normally retail around $800.00 being sold for $100.00.  The lighting fixtures were a great deal as well if they fit your personal and homes style.  It’s like a TJMaxx where they get new items in all the time and you never know what it might be. 


Dancing Horse, Beautiful…

Every time I watch this it brings a smile to my face.  I am posting this in memory of “Billy” a beautiful horse from Bethany, my heart goes out to you Vickie – All my love, Kim 

Going Green in Milford CT


Just read about two forward thinking entrepreneurs Dayan Moore and Alison Grieveson who met while working at Café Atlantique, a downtown Milford, CT café and all around fav meeting place for those who want a little down time before and after their train ride .   Grievenson who designed their website   has a degree in advertising design form the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and now works as a free lance graphic artist.   These cool chicks have developed their own line of fashion accessories from recycled items such as billboard ads (who knew?) and bicycle inner tubes.  They have taken the bright colors which have earned such great brand recognition for companies such as Dunkin Donuts, Saab and others and transformed them into hip one-of-a kind handbags, belts, purses and much more!  

 They also support local businesses such as Bruce and John Barrett, who own a billboard company and Deborah Row who owns a Daniel Street bicycle shop by obtaining their materials from them.   So in addition to making the earth a greener place they are supporting local companies and reducing their waste. You Go Girls!!

You can find their custom items (and help save the planet by choosing them) locally at Given to Gauche a downtown boutique located at 4 Daniel Street, Milford, CT  or on their website http:   Their “revinylized” bags are water resistant without the uses of chemicals so they are also being offered through several Whole Foods supermarkets as a great alternative to the ‘paper or plastic’ you usually have as a supermarket bagging option. 

What is on the horizon for these two dynamos—well they are looking into canvas, nylon and other products used in making sails and you guessed it – since Milford is a seacoast town they are talking to a local sail maker…


FHA Loan Limits Have Increased for New Haven County in CT

j0398775.jpgGreat news for the New Haven County area, Scott (Loan Officer) just passed this information on to us regrading rates in  Milford CT.

” Please review the new FHA loan limits in New Haven County, this increase is great news for buyers with less than perfect credit and looking to put little money down!  Also, the Federal Legislature has past a bill stating that Mortgage Insurance will remain a tax deduction until 2010 at least.    To go with the new limits FHA rates are as good if not better than Conventional rates at this time.”

  If you have any questions or would like more information on FHA any of this information or FHA in general please feel free to give Scott a call.

Ring out the old, ring in the new.
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
