Oh… the things we do for love!  My husband’s birthday just past, and with Father’s Day coming up, I thought I’d do something bigger than I normally would.  Here goes… My hubby and I joke around a lot about turning the downstairs bathroom into a 90’s grunge themed bathroom.  I always laugh and play along, […]

Gift wrap

Maps are so beautiful.  I’ve been looking for some ways to use them because I see them everywhere (including my glove box).  Just like CD’s, record albums, and books, they are becoming obsolete due to the emergence of electronics like the GPS and the internet.  But what I do love about maps is that they tell a story and […]
