Junk Mail Never Looked So Good

Sandhi Schimmel Gold is a recycling genius and an artist on top of that.  She turns every day junk mail into the most amazing art!

She hand cuts, sorts and manipulates thousands of pieces; images and text to assemble a mosaic portrait.

I hope you can see the detail but here is a tighter picture to show up close just how detailed these are.....

She does custom portraits too, I know what I want for Christmas, honey are you reading this? ;)

She is probably the one person who actually gets excited by her junk mail each day.

Stainless Copper Sinks

Say what? I know you think those don't go together but they do now...

Rohl has come out with a copper stainless sink...It's the look of copper with even more durability than stainless due to the PVD coating they finish it in.  It's scratch proof finish has a brilliant shine and is resistant to abrasion.

Copper is a "living" finish, meaning it changes and ages which most of my clients don't like for a kitchen sink due to it's higher mainentance...But these new sinks give you the finish/color without all that hassle.

So are you thinking copper could be an option for your own kitchen now?

Lighting Up in Unexpected Places

Wow, I can't believe the last time I posted was back in February, time flies right?  I hope you are all well and enjoying your summer so far...I have so much to share with you all including lots of projects that I am currently getting photos snapped of, but in the meantime....

I have been wanting to share this very cool innovation, from Keeler Products....It's light integrated trim (LIT).

You can add this trim to crown moldings, decorative trim, baseboard, cabinet and backsplash, stair railings, recessed ceilings, etc.

It's a safe (low voltage), highly efficient lasting up to 50,000 hours and lights up your dark spaces, which we all have right?

I am all for lighting spaces but I think I will need some time to warm up to the backsplash trim in the kitchen, what do you think?
