Kickin' It

One day my hubby, straight outta the blue, got all man-crafty and decided to build a mini deck. See it there? Admisdt the flower bed? Perfect for a family hang or more importantly, grown-up booze central. Secretive ... and swanky huh?! Suspended right in the midst of our flower bed. The kids helped with the construction ...
and the signage. Then we added a couple of chairs, hanging plants & bam ... the joint is poppin.' Well, at least the kids think so! My main man did a killer job. "The Deck" is our new evening destination. Cue music: "Night Boat to Cairo."

Swanky Swimming Ladies

We've made some killer aquarium art pieces. I guess it's something about ladies all wet? This is our latest one. Found some amazing vintage scenes to include. He was old and tricky to cut, but well worth it. And of course there's the ladies. Perfect art for Summer time in the ATX!

Father Knows Best

Our garage is our "retirement fund". My husband is convinced every t-shirt, magazine, record, tape, cd, magazine, etc. that he's had over the last 25 years in his music career will be worth tons some day. This takes up half the space. I have the bad combination of being cheap with good intentions. My half consists of "good deals" - furniture to be "fixed" at some point when I have the money and time. It got to be bad in there, so hubby cleaned out the garage for heavy trash day. I went to go check it out a few days later and found this. Which is just a perfect combo of us both, including those kids. He found this record player in Erie, PA and brought it home. The red vinyl toy box it's on too. We still have the naked lady ice cubes. I have a whole collection of naked lady stuff, but I couldn't display it once I had kids. I'm not brave enough for that conversation. Bottoms up! I have more of this stuff too. What's a lounge without a disco ball. Or a Knifedance poster? I was totally impressed and desperately want an exposed rock wall in my house now.

White Hot

A friend of ours did a super re-do on their house.  This ain't no new paint and floors kinda re-do, we're talking about a rip it down to the studs to create the most amazing of a modern dream house.  After going through all that work, every little detail has to be perfect, including the address plaque. We were happy to create this custom piece for them. Killer custom numbers and a big slab of milky white plexiglas.
This ain't no joke.
Look for their house on the AIA Homes Tour this fall.
