As I've mentioned before, D is on one hell of an organizational/building/fixing up the house bender. It's freakin awesome! He's really improved our pad, with a few weekends of serious elbow grease and rocking out to his audiobooks (He's currently listening to the Godfather, by Mario Puzo - arguably the best epic tale ever told!). The other day I casually mentioned changing up the artwork we had in the kitchen, the spot where I spend a fair share of my time when at home.
We selected a few items and created a new visual vignette and I love it! We've got my favorite of D's detailed ink paintings he did while we lived in India, rustic chopsticks clipped from a pho house in Danang Vietnam, a flashcard showing sultry lips I bought at an antique shop in SE Portland and ancestry paper from Southern Vietnam. I've re-fallen in love with my petite kitchen largely due to this little collection of objets de'art. I highly recommend small domestic changes, they may create a big impact!
