Friends have always called me the “Urban Martha Stewart”, but since moving to New York, I’ve felt more like a Martha Stalwart. My husband and I moved into a place that Martha herself wouldn’t store shovels for her garden. Throwing beautiful parties has been replaced with teaching myself plumbing so I can stop the apartment from flooding.
But I am determined to become a new kind of Martha. Someone who can turn a piece of junk into something wonderful. Someone who can’t always afford the best produce but still makes a great and healthy meal. Someone who crafts not just because its rewarding to make something yourself, but because its cheaper than buying it.
Someone who fixes her own sink because she can’t afford a professional….
Still good things. Just a little dirtier.
My name is Delia Hauser.
