copper backsplash

I just love how rich this aged copper backsplash looks with the existing cabinetry! I also put this treatment in the recessed ceiling tray which has a stainless steel frame - very chic!

Promised before and afters

Here are the promised before and after photos, although not the best lighting was available. I'll be taking new photos for my portfolio after I seal them, in the daylight.

Home Again, Home Again

My weekend in Boston was so short and sweet! My lovely daughter sang beautifully and looked like a grown woman - well, I'd best face the fact that she is! The weather was gorgeous, not cold at all, until Monday morning........it snowed! I stood on her roof catching snowflakes on my tongue until it was time to walk to the T and head to the airport. We arrived in Fort Myers to 80 degrees and sunshine.

I'm working on a staircase for a client, which I hope to show you soon!

Finding my muse

After a little disappointment on the job front, I felt a need to be productive in some way other than housework (don't we all?). On Saturday I wasn't completely sure of my direction after deciding that I needed to rework my inchie canvas, but suddenly I felt the urge to drill. Yes, drill, as to put holes into things. So I pulled out all kinds of metal, plastic and wood embellishments I had saved and drilled away! It felt great!

On Sunday I got to Lakes Park just after the gates opened at 8 a.m. to look for birds, critters, and scenery to photograph. It was amazingly quiet there, and the birds were rather shy, but I managed to find a few treasures. Some of the camoflauge was awesome!

First is a little yellow finch, who came out of the center of his tree to pose for me, then a red wing blackbird scolding me for getting too close, a portal through the trees, and a spider web glistening in the sunbeam (there is actually another, larger spider web to the right that you might be able to see if you enlarge the photo).

I hope you enjoy the few pictures I am sharing today. I am off to walk a dog, then on to a lovely day with my best friend......part of which involves getting a new canvas for my inchies!
