In this project we smashed the plates and then reassembled them as a mosaic in the backsplash. It was really a fun project! Gina in Annapolis

Margery: Interestingly, I've found that some potential buyers pretend they don't like the special touches because they want to use their so-called displeasure to bring the price down. Sometimes they're coached by realtors to do that. And HGTV participants are clearly coached on what to say. (I'd love to see an expose about what really happens at the "reveals." If it were me, I'd take one look at some of these designs and comment -- not in a good way -- OMIGOD!) As far as camping, I knew one family whose job involved two transfers and so they wouldn't buy a dining room set until they were certain that they were "settled" in their last home. No holiday or special-event dinners -- so many missed opportunities -- for years! And, in that case, shortly after they moved into that last house, they got divorced! Another wouldn't hang anything on the walls so they'd stay unmarked. It was depressing going into their bland home. A third kept furniture several inches from the wall so as not to scuff them up. I can't even describe how silly that looked!

BTW, vanilla ice cream is good....if you pour hot fudge over it and top it with whipped cream and a cherry!

Having said all of this, I am pleased to report that the unprecedented days and days of rain here in the desert southwest have finally come to an end. But, since I'm here, I'll scroll up once again to the photos of that cheerful prize-winning kitchen for a peek anyhow because is still makes me smile.

I wonder how many folks like me are artists in one way or another and keep a 'vanilla' home so it can be an ever changing backdrop for our ever changing work? I hope folks can enjoy their homes in the way that works for them. Someone once commented that our home was clearly full of things we love. It was the best compliment I ever got. As my dd says, 'home is where your stuff is'. Congrats for the award on a unique kitchen. Not for me but definitely unique.

I have found that a way around that hassle is to use a couple of tables leaving a space in the middle to enter and exit. it can be a great look also.

Here's a coffee table we made from oars. We used a tray and coiled rope on it as a placemat and displayed a collection of boat cleats on it. That's the way we do it in Annapolis!

Saw the bedroom in person! My girls and I loved it. I even took a picture! Love the aqua and lime together - it's relaxing without being too mellow.
