When I moved into my house there was carpet. I worked evenings at that time and one night on my way home I realized that I actually didn't look forward to getting home because when I opened that door there was a sickly sweet smell that made my stomach turn.
When I told my husband what I thought it smelled "like" we decided right there and then to rip out all the carpets. When we did we discovered that all we had was plywood floors.
Which really discouraged my husband but I saw this as a great opportunity to play around with paints. We painted them white and it has worked out well and amazingly they are not that messy or that hard to clean but it is time for a change.
Recently I saw this great guest post on SF Girl By Bay by Vosgesparis featuring Plywood and had me wishing we would have kept them as they were.
I love the beauty and simplicity of plywood as well as the price.
It's funny but the older I get the more I love abstract art. Today on my "Art art I want you" installment I feature Helen Frankenthaler who found her voice in a largely male dominated era of art. Her career was launched in 1952 with the exhibition of Mountains and Sea, she became an artist from the Color Field movement, a
variant of the Abstract Expressionists. Her color stained canvases with
soft washes still evoke a sense of
liquid tranquility. RIP

It wasn't an easy road! We didn't just meet in high school and go on to get married and live happily ever after. We married different people, had kids, broke each other's hearts a few times and a few more hearts in the process. But today... is a celebration of a year's worth of making our delayed "Happily Ever After" official and I just want to say "Happy Anniversary Baby!" and
