Interview on Simmer Till Done

Marilyn at Simmer till Done grilled me about my eating habits for her always entertaining cooking blog. You can read all about my food fetishes at Tell Simmer.

Marilyn's hometown is Wilmette, which is just north of The Box House, and she currently lives in Lawrence, Kansas, where Ted went to school. Small world, eh?

I have a home with floors, molding, and trim that looks just like yours. I was hoping you knew of the wood name (not just "oak") or something that your flooring contractor provided you with the best grain match. I tried buying a hardwood door from home depot for a new closet in our bedroom and it just does NOT match. Obviously because of the quality of the available woods for this generation.

Could you shed any light?

I agree, that was fun to read. I had never heard of happy pizza before. That is some oregano.

Lamb--Your profile is hidden, but if you check back in, I would suggest going to a salvage place and find an old door. ( Or a Habitat re-store place.) It will cost less than a new door.

We replaced some of our old oak hardwood floor with new oak and of course the grain was all different. I did some creative staining to get a ok match. Most people will never notice, but I do.

no idea how to change my profile blocker. it shows that my blog can be read by anyone. http://meogeollei.blogspot.com/

do u ever question if your trim is oak? i know my floors are, but sometimes i question if my trim is because there is not enough definition in it. ill have to take a pic sometime, but really, my floor/trim/doors really do look exactly like yours. my house was built in approx. 1940

Lamb--I'm not really sure what type of oak floors they are; they looked more whitish than reddish when they were sanded down. I have some photos of what the floor looked like before, during, and after the refinishing.

To the best of my knowledge, I think all our interior wood is oak, with the exception of the kitchen floor, currently under ugly tile. We peeled back some tile, and I think we have maple in the kitchen.
