A Little Needed Comfort

October 27, 2015

Between Halloween, Dia los Muertos and turning the clocks back, this weekend might just have you craving or needing a little comfort food. My simplequietmodern shortcut for Pork with Green Chilis and Potatoes to the rescue. A slow cooked New Texican stew served up over rice or folded into tortillas might be just what’s needed to fight that candy corn hangover.

What a difference…

November 2, 2013

an hour can make.  It’s time to turn the clock back tonight which will find you in the dark come 5 o’clock tomorrow afternoon.  Coming home at the end of the day in the dark…to the dark…is a reminder of how long and dark Winter actually is. A simplequietmodern solution might come in a pendant light cord kit or two from Color Cord Company. Select from the amazing selection of cloth covered wire, plugs, line switches and sockets and add a bulb of your choice. Then, install your new fixture anywhere you might have the need for additional light. Add a shade or leave the bulb exposed…hardwire in or plug in and secure its location with a couple of screw hooks…this illuminating DIY will have things brightened up in no time. You can up the voltage on this project by making a cord selection of bright orange, red, hot pink or tourquoise or, stick to the classic neutrals of black, white, gray or brown. With 27 colors of cloth covered wire available by the foot, you might also be inspired to re-wire that vintage modern lamp you’ve just picked up.
