Kitchen Art: Again.

On 14, Apr 2011 | One Comment | In living | By Lori

Sometimes things are so much fun to do the first time around, you gotta do them again. All the artwork from the kitchen has been moved into the living room because when you have fantastic friends like I do who give you the most AWESOME presents in the whole wide world… well, it’s cause to celebrate.  With a trip to the frame store!

These lovely tidbits are from a talented artist at Victory Gardens of Tomorrow.  And these photos really don’t do them justice.  I would honestly go buy the rest of the collection, if I had any wall space left in my kitchen.

What I love is that one is a promo poster for an event Ranger and I had already planned on attending, the 2011 Funky Chicken Coop Tour.  We hope to be amongst the small band of urban chicken farmers starting next Spring so this is the perfect opportunity to visit coops and talk with people about their chicken raising experiences.  So stay tuned after Easter for that update!

The kitchen is so close to being done.  I can taste the end product.  So I’ve been holding off posting photos until all the i’s are dotted and the t’s crossed.  BUT I am excited about this sneak preview, the kitchen wall art.

Our office is a Genesis tribute (Ranger is a big fan) but I went for color and style over specific genre.  We have a huge selection of vinyl to choose from, hand selected and bought over the years and still about half inherited from different people in my family.  Saturdays we put on some music open all the doors in the house and get the housework done.  And nothing says summer like sitting on the deck, drinking a shiner, listening to Willie Nelson…

Target has album frames for $10.

Speaking of Willie, I bought a friend a hand silk screened Willie Nelson concert poster for her birthday.  There was a problem with the order and the shipping was delayed.  For my trouble (which wasn’t really any trouble AT ALL) Liquid Overhead sent me this lovely gem. The band, the colors, the BIRDS.  It’s like they KNOW ME.

I’ve been knitting up a storm recently.  It’s the only thing that seems to settle the wedding nerves.  But I’m well on my way to finishing up a ton of christmas gifts for everyone.  These however are mine:

one wedding and a house remodel…

On 23, Oct 2008 | No Comments | In crafting, house remodel, wedding | By Lori

because:

  1. we are crazy
  2. we figure we are young enough and energetic enough to do everything at once and
  3. Jonathan wants to see if its possible to actually make my head explode…

I am now planning a wedding on top of a major home remodel.  So a new category has been added and my worries have surfaced.  My bible: Offbeat Bride: Taffeta-Free Alternatives for Independent Brides.

I now feel the need to compromise with the only person who counts.  Now I’ve never needed anyone or any office to tell me if I’m committed for life, Jonathan and I are bound by bonds stronger than marriage licenses could ever be: joint mortgage. That being said, I’m happy.  Happy because I know how rare and special our relationship is and nothing would make me prouder than to be Mrs. Ranger.

We’re planning as fun and environmentally responsible of a wedding as our big hearts and little pocketbooks can muster.  And our lovely friends have jumped on board offering to help us in any way they can.  Amy bought me Eco-Chic Weddings: Simple Tips to Plan an Environmentally Friendly, Socially Responsible, Affordable, and Stylish Celebration which is proving to be an excellent resource for ideas and vendors.

As soon as we set a date and a location I can rest again…or at least get back to the house….
