i find that when i'm looking at the photo albums of the kids when they were small i'm looking more at the backgrounds to see our old houses. the kids (although grown now) i still have, better looking than ever, but wow i had no decorating sense at all when i was younger!

when we did our first big renovation of our 1870 house we began a "museum box" of finds from the walls. my favorite is a ticket stub from June 12, 1884 that says "retain this check". it's retained, all right! the east german easter egg was lost by the previous owner, it fell out of a box in the attic and down into the wall, she had a good laugh when i showed it to her.

but we missed our chance to seed some things from the present for the future to find, the walls are all closed up now and i'm never renovating again. well, until the next project anyway.

I really like small houses and this one is especially cool. One thing I'd change is the style of the kitchen island. I can not figure out how it is supposed to fit in with a contemporary design--especially within sight of the shoji screens. Something lighter and less ornate would be my choice.

Love the bedspread. Any clue where to find it? I have an old oriental rug that would go great...

These are some of the orchids I have. I started collecting/growing them about 2 years ago. I have them outside and seem to like it. I love how they look, so delicate.

I have worked in an orchid burry and love the many varieties available. I hope my information will help a few of you. For you phals when they have finished blooming cut the stem as close to the plant as you are comfortable. This will give the plant a break and the energy it needs to grow new leaves and produce new blooms. Feed your orchids once a month with a half strength solution of balanced fertilizer. Remember to water first and then fertilize with water soluble fertilizer. Too much fertilizer will burn the roots off an orchid. If you are having trouble reblooming your orchid try changing you environment. Most orchids need to experience the change in day lengths. An example is phals need the shorter days of winter light to know when to spike. It is not uncommon for a phal to hold its flowers for 4 months or more. It means you are doing something right and the air is not experience "extreme" changes to the plant. Again I hope this helps and if you want more information Carter and Holmes Orchids has a great website that has free information sheets on different types of orchids as well as supplies. Oh, and don't over water your orchid they would prefer if you forget them than to water to much. Good luck orchid growers!

Lucky couple to have found someone skilled enough to create this masterpiece. I am swooning over the trained white rose vine, the stones, pathways, and the simplicity of it all.

What a great transformation of a once almost useless yard. May you have many years of enjoyment out there.
