Well I’ve been running around to local places trying to find bamboo cabinets. Only found one place that had them on display. I’ve also been looking at flooring & found some interesting cork & rubber floors, have to find out more about them & the cost. Finding a few places that can order the recycled glass countertops, but they are way expensive. So far I don’t think I can afford the green kitchen I really want, but I’ll keep plugging away. Here’s an ugly before pic and a possible layout I created with a free design tool on Lowes website.
My husband & I don’t buy in to the commercialized Valentine’s Day crap of expensive jewelry and dinners out. We usually just make each other small tokens of our love. He made me some chocolate & coconut covered strawberries, YUM!!! And he added a post on his flickr page for me.
I made him a framed valentine. Some old photos I saw at an antique fair I visited last week inspired me. They were photos of couples in art deco like cardboard studio frames. I created an art deco design for the frame & planned to edit a photo of us with sepia. Realizing I didn’t have any photos of us that were right for the project, I decided to just do something artsy of myself (always fun trying to jump in front of the camera after you set the timer). He loved it & took it to work & hung it up.
