My New Website

milkweed website copy final ©Kim Smith 2013

When you have a spare moment, I hope you’ll have a look at my new website at Kim Smith Designs. I think the wordpress theme Twenty Twelve is especially terrific for sharing photographs, films, and design projects. The Home page is my blog and above in the heading area are drop down menus highlighting current public design projects, new films, and more about my book Oh Garden of Fresh Possibilities!

On the HarborWalk page there are photos and information about some of the wildflowers planted there, with photos of the butterflies that these native beauties were planted to attract. You will also find a link to join the Friends of the HarborWalk. We are looking for volunteer members. I am going to be giving lots of talks about wildflowers and butterflies for members at the gardens this upcoming season and while volunteering, it will be a great opportunity for you to become better acquainted with the flora and fauna indigenous to the Northeast

I hope you find all easy to navigate. Thank you so much for visiting my website!

Chickity Check It! Gloucester HarborWalk Website is live! www.ghwalk.org

The website for the Gloucester HarborWalk is live!  www.ghwalk.org.  The HarborWalk is a Walk of Stories, reflecting that we are a City of Stories (really great stories.)  Hints of these stories are given along the Walk, which weaves in and out of the waterfront, up to City Hall, and around and down the brick sidewalks and great food of Main Street, back to St. Peter’s Park.  It is a Walk through the heart of Gloucester.  People might like to preview the stories on the new website. There are Stories and links to more stories, Walking Cinema, and Postcards from Gloucester!  Cambridge 7 Associates produced beautiful designs, and Lise Breen and Catherine Ryan found terrific stories, videos, art and connections from all in the community.  Take a look!
Mayor Kirk invites all to the ribbon-cutting on Thursday August 9th at 1 p.m. with the Lt. Governor, and to walk the Walk with her following the ceremony.
Very best,
Sarah Garcia

Chickity Check It! Cape Ann Museum’s Got A Brand New Designed website


Melissa Garabedian writes-

Hey Joey!

Congrats on being named BONS Best Blog Editors Choice and Best Blog Readers Choice – well deserved!

I’m sure you’ve probably already saw it, but Cape Ann Museum launched a new website which we are officially announcing today. The site was designed by Plein Air Interactive from Portland Maine. Plein Air specializes in creating websites for museums and cultural organizations.

The new website extends the unique and engaging Cape Ann Museum experience onto the web and social media channels. It allows people to easily be in contact with all aspects of the Museum such as how to visit, exhibitions, events, programs, research and more!

FYI – you don’t want to miss the next Music in the Courtyard series next Friday, July 27 from 4-5pm featuring Allen Estes! Allen Estes brings his unique blend of country, rock ‘n’ roll and folk to the Cape Ann Museum’s summer music series. An opening act for Bonnie Raitt, J Geils, Tim McGraw, America, Jose Feliciano, Reba McEntire, Waylon Jennings, Kenny Chesney, Tricia Yearwood and more, Allen Estes is a performer you don’t want to miss! This program is free and open to the public. In case of rain this program will be held inside the Museum.

Thanks again for your continued support and interest in the Cape Ann Museum! Talk to you soon!



Another great resource

One of the most viewed photos of the horribles parade on my photostream was this one:

These fellows are on the float for a new website, The Bridge.  They host videos, a short-format news feed, a blog, and more, from/about local Cape Ann businesses and organizations.  It’s a helpful and well-presented resource that complements GoodMorningGloucester and helps spread the news about all the great things going on here on Cape Ann!

Chickity Check It! Tacos Lupita Has A New Website

Menus, Food Photos, Directions and More.


I built it for them when they asked.  Hope you like it.

Probably the most useful thing on there is the pictures of food which weren’t prepared special for the website, they were just photos of dishes they made for customers while I was there.  Allso the menu with prices on it gives you an idea of just how affordable it is.

Last time there Dee Noble was there with 3 kids and the whole bill for sit down lunch was $20 and change.  Seriously?  How do you beat that?

Gloucester’s Joe, Gus and Nino Sanfilippo on ABC’s Expedition Impossible Website!

Click here to go to the site


From The Site-

Ready to represent the storied Northeast fishing community of Gloucester, Gus (the captain), Nino (the engineer), and Joe (the deckhand) are three old-school Italian fishermen with small town values and big time hearts. Bonded together by blood (Gus and Nino are brothers, Joe is their cousin), they also work side-by-side as crewmates aboard the Captain Dominic. They believe their experience working together under pressure and routinely risking their lives while out at sea gives them an inherent "toughness" that will help them win. We’ll see if that’s the case.

The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce Website- GMG Gloucester Tourism 2011 Kick Off Week


The Chamber of Commerce Has A Feature Rich Website with The Weekly Catch, A Member Directory and Information For Other Cape Ann Towns Like Rockport, Essex and Manchester.

One excellent feature is the Weekly Catch and it’s listing of cultural events happening around town.  It can be found with a link at the header of the Chamber’s Home Page.  I also feature it here on my weekly picks of the week post every Thursday morning.

Sista Felicia’s Rosa Rugosa Video On The Gloucester Times Website

Here is the video on the Gloucester Times Taste Of The Times on demand video recipes featuring Sista Felicia making the Rosa Rugosa Rose Hip Jelly and Rose Petal Jelly.

Take time to eat the roses

Rosa Rugosa is a carefree rose which will grow in salty conditions, shade, full sun, and poor soil so long as it’s well-drained. Its fruits and flower petals can be used to make jelly.
