What I love about Marilyn Guthrie’s website and blog is the fact that she lives in an old house like me, and everything she blogs, writes, and posts on her website directly reflects her drive to make the time and space she occupies on this Earth into objects of beauty and endurance. Her website is kind of like ’This Old House’ for the rest of us, because the rest of us don’t have about $2M to throw into a home renovation project. Marilyn offers practical observations and personal experience making period-appropriate furnishings and projects. Sick and tired of a buncha beer-swilling guys manhandling the blogosphere with the ’been-there-done-that-let-me-show-you how- to-shoot-that-there-gun-Pilgirm attitude? Let Marilyn show you how she works wood.
