Sending You Joy

Hello, hello.
I usually try to keep my posts light and fun, so that you and I can come here to escape for a few minutes from real life, jobs and stress. That being said, it's been a rough week for us over in the old US of A and I just want to comment on it briefly. First of all, I just want to send my thoughts out to anyone affected by the Boston Marathon bombings and the fertilizer explosion in West, Texas.

As someone who lived in New York City during 9-11, I know how terrorism can change your life unalterably.  It's extremely difficult to truly comprehend this unless you actually live through it, so I feel for you Boston.  I really do.

Boys' Bathroom

We didn't change any of the tiles and only had to do a few minor rep…

Around the Blogosphere

Hi. Hi.

One of my favorite blogs to read is Little Green Notebook.  Trust me when I say the girl's (Jenny Komenda) got some major talent.  I came across this post and I HAD to share.

Jessica Davis of  The Eagle's Nest blog and Nest Studios did this amazing transformation of her kitchen floor.   For the entire post go {here}.   See the highlights below.

All you need is a stencil and a dream! (and a lot of patience.. and a great vision. lol)
Jessica used the Shipibo Allover Stencil  from Cutting Edge Stencils. Head over there to start choosing your stencil for your next DIY project!

Thanks to Jessica for being so creative and inspiring to us all!

Speaking of which, any DIY projects that you are working on now that you would like to share? Send pics!
Have a great day.
