“objects are bigger than they appear”

The studio-bunkhouse is still underway … slower process than we’d like – oh well … it will when it does.

It’s bigger than I imagined.

Studio-Workshop-Bunkhouse

The studio and man cave are dried in and now the floors, walls, window coverings and lighting need to be finalized.

The kitchen and bathroom are ready for final design decisions like walls, floors, countertops, cupboards, appliances, lighting, tile, sinks, faucets, shower, window coverings … $$$$$ …. this is the part where you have to dig in to find the very best for less with no regrets. It will be done … under budget or bust.

Kitchen-Bathroom Design

In closing … one thing always holds true with Roberto … go big or go home. This time he designed a multi-use space where a crowd can take a nap or have a hoedown.

Brilliant … hope they bring snacks.

10 Years Later

After Buddy passed in 2009, tilegypsy.com was born. Happy 10th Anniversary to us. 😉

Years earlier … my intention was to become a brick and mortar shop-keeper (I was) and tile artist (I am) who taught herself how to design websites (I did) and would live happily ever after until … the universe kept showing me the door … not once,  (I’m not a quitter) not twice, (pack-unpack) but 1/2 dozen times. Thanks for your patience, Robbie.

When one of my intentions show up, I try really hard to honor it but this time was different. The wretched (being kind) side of the human element literally forced me – with a good pummeling – to get off my butt and take a completely different path. Bravo. Mara Lee, take a bow, you rock!

My suggestion after being shoved toward enlightenment is to  …  arm yourself with a case of Kleenex, Fiji water and plenty of snacks … that way you’ll have a better chance of riding the courage wave, until you reach the shore.  You can do it water boy;) #hidave

In memory of my sweet Budders.

Goals

The goal is to empty the storage lockers, not glue the glass on glass window for the bathroom.

Look at the cool 70’s macrame book unboxed … no macrame cord of course. Wonder where that is?vintage-macrame-book

It’s a vicious cycle.
