Gosh, I’m feeling kinda all alone peering in this window, wondering: What (for your home) knocks your socks off? What project do you want to tackle? … Since I’ve moved my workspace from the Tribune Tower to my humble home, I’ve not yet got everything how I like it in my office (haha, it’s a corner of my golden-yellow bedroom!)
But I’m working at it. Found a great little filing thingie for less than $70 at Office Depot, while picking up printer cartridges (again). Want to see??
Show me what you’re working on?
You know, some things you can only ponder about for so long. And then you just have to dive in.
Well, it’s that time for me. So here I go!
Welcome to The Snoopster, a place I have been dreaming about since leaving the Chicago Tribune in April. A place for those of us who take delight in creating surprise, interest, warmth and beauty in our homes.
The Snoopster will offer some of the things I worked on in my 14 years as editor of the Trib’s House & Homes section — virtual peeks to see How the Famous Folk Live in their homes, looks into homes we pass and wonder “What does it look like inside???” (Knock, Knock). And more.
If you’re looking for great deals and home-related events, check out the Sales + Events page.
I’ll post photos of projects by area interior designers in the Galleria. And if you’ve got a problem you haven’t been able to solve about the care or repair of something in your home, just try and Stump Me.
That’s the plan for now. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? Come back and check it out, OK? And let me here from you too. I’d really like that. I miss you all!

P.S. Much thanks to the brilliant and multi-talented Will Kamin for photographing The Snoopster. He gives me such hope for the future of our world.
