Verdi Supervises the Carpet Rotation

Verdi Supervises the Carpet Rotation

Posted by F&S

One day last week, Martha decided to work from home.  In between phone calls and writing assignments, she always looks around to see what needs to be taken care of.  Verdi, the cat, should have known better than to get all settled in for a nice long nap on his favorite perch in the dining …

It's Francesca O'Clock

It's Francesca O'Clock

Posted by Francesca

I was wandering around the house the other day when I noticed something strange and exciting in Martha’s parlor.  Sitting there upon the lovely Fortuny-covered settee was a clock with my face upon its face.  Of course, the clock is one-of-a-kind and simply magnifique!

Scaling Parkman Mountain in Maine

Scaling Parkman Mountain in Maine

If you read Martha’s blog yesterday, then you know we went hiking while we were in Maine.  You know that Sharkey and I are avid hikers and we’re trying to get G.K. conditioned as a skilled trekker.  And after scaling Parkman Mountain in Acadia National Park, I think the boy has what it takes.

Modeling for Halloween

Modeling for Halloween

Posted by Francesca

Martha wanted all of her pooches at the TV show recently so that we could model some frightfully fun pet costumes for the PetSmart Halloween Costume Contest.   While we were there, we got to visit with all of our TV friends.  It is always so much fun being the center of attention!

Decorating For Autumn

Posted by Francesca

Martha likes to grow all kinds of pumpkins, gourds, and squashes to use as autumn decorations.  All summer long, Sharkey and I have been watching them take shape on their vines.  Some are big and smooth and others are crooked and all covered with warts.  I think they’re all beautiful.  At long last, it was …

Francesca and I told you the other day how we set up flip cams in the kitchen as part of our sting operation.  I think our French lineage can be traced to Chief Inspector Jacques Clousseu because we have proven ourselves to be superior sleuths!  Check this out and there’s even more to come!

If you read Martha’s blog, then you know that she was home one day, a couple of weeks ago, partaking in a photo shoot for her magazine, Martha Stewart Living.  I was going through our blog photos and I realized that Franny and I forgot to post about that day.  So, here it is – …

Trying On Halloween Costumes

Posted by Francesca

Just as Martha does, we simply adore Halloween: Every year, Sharkey and I work with Martha’s crafty Crafts Department crafters to devise new and ever more terrifying costumes. This year, we’ve got a whole new source of possibilities: Martha’s line of pet Halloween costumes for PetSmart! We tried on the whole collection, and when we …

Let Them Eat Cake, or Not

Let Them Eat Cake, or Not

Posted by Francesca

One day last week, when Martha was at home, she gathered all of the grounds crew after their lunch to celebrate Fernando’s birthday.  She served them, what looked to be, a really great cake.  Cake seems to be a weakness for Sharkey and she acted very badly.

Our Webisodes Debut!

Posted by F&S

As all of our fans and readers know by now, we spent the summer taping a series of five webisodes (for all you non-techies, that’s a video series that appears online) about our experience creating a TV show for Martha. And they’re finally done! Will Martha green-light our show? You’ll have to watch to find …
