We ordered some additional samples from Susan Jablon Mosaics. I like the site, and the other tile samples we received were great - just a bit too colorful. Anyway, we like this one and if our eyes like the samples as much as our heads , these will be up on our kitchen wall soon.

we bought these

Since our refrigerator will cease being photo central soon and no one liked the idea of giving up on cool magnets, we bought two of these white boards from Ikea. They were pretty cheap, simple. The plan is to mount them on a wall in the kitchen, where M will be able to play with her talking alphabet, and see our photo montages/pictures. Later we'll let her play with the dry erase markers!

Tomorrow I order new lights. Our kitchen will not ever be this dark or this shabby.

Tweak by TechLighting

We're using the Tweaks in our kitchen remodel. We have 10 of these puppies pumping out some thrills. It's a T-Trak line voltage head. We're using a two different bulbs, a 75 watt flood and a 75 watt narrow spot. Spots for art, floods for work areas.

We got ours at Hampden-Zimmerman in NoHo. Well, we're getting ours from them...once tax free day comes.

Range with hood and knives

A few weeks ago, Nicole got tired of waiting for me to hang the range hood. Despite not having the exhaust ducting in hand, we spent a couple of hours and hung the art. It's dramatic, and we're pleased. Nicole is more pleased, since the basement is now missing a humongous and heavy box.
