Barnyard home filled with fun, fantasy and love

31 Jul


Photojournalist Linda Solomon’s home is featured in the Detroit News. It’s truly a labor of love, and a unique home filled antiques that Linda and her husband, Barry, have collected over the years.  Flea market finds, turquoise-laden objets d’ art, and whimsical bric-a- brac fill this treasure trove. I had the opportunity years ago to feature the home in the now defunct Style magazine, and Detroit News writer Maureen Feighan captures the spirit too.

Linda Solomon sure is talented. See my previous post when she was on the Meredith Viera Show.

Southern Comfort in Miami Beach

26 Jul


If you love fried chicken, biscuits and comfort food, I’ve found the place for you — Yardbird Southern Table & Bar in Miami Beach.

fried chicken

I devoured the fried chicken, biscuits and macaroni and cheese. Everything was so yummy and flavorful. The desserts looked fantastic. I just didn’t have room to try the  bacon butterscotch cake, but the couple next to us who tried it said it was delicious.

If one of my  favorite cardiologists, Dr. Joel Kahn, finds about this, I know the perfect answer: The salads were just as yummy!  And, that’s the truth.



Artists Believe in Detroit

17 Jul



Have you noticed how many national newspapers and magazines are highlighting Detroit as the place to move?

Today’s New York Times article, “Ready for a Renaissance,” by Melena Ryzik interviews artists about Detroit’s public art spaces. The story also mentions the generous grant from the John S. and James. L. Knight Foundation.

Last week the  New York Times wrote about Brooklyn artisans moving to Detroit.
