my husband and i like to dream about adding onto our little house. don't get me wrong, it is beautiful and just perfect for the two of us. but when we add another being into the realm of things, it could get a little crowded. but even before that, we have been talking about putting in a back splash. our house was built in the late 1940s and most of our furniture has a mid-century modern feeling. i found this site, Modwalls, which uses recycled glass and comes in all sorts of great patterns and colors. perfect for the person with an eclectic style. you can even design your own patterns. but caution, you will spend at least an hour exploring and designing different patterns.
while we are on the subject of designing, this would be a great time to brag about my husband and his handy-man skills. this fall he built a custom shelf for our dining room and we love it. the shelf is the first in a long list of pieces he intends to create.
i should also mention that santa was very kind to me this year. i received the kitchen aid artisan mixer. hell yes! it is red and beautiful and amazing. i am very fond of this machine.
