Tiled All the Way to the Top

Every now and then I come across a  bathroom that features tile across the ceiling as well as the walls. Here’s one example. The light shining across the tile on the three surfaces creates an inviting space here. Do you like it?

Framing Art with Architecture

I attended an art exhibit one day. A glance upward brought this window into view. I found I liked this window more than much of the art hanging on the walls and displayed throughout the space below this window. (Photographed with a cell phone.)

Photo of the Day
January 12, 2012

As a Realtor, I am always looking at homes as I walk and drive and bike around town. I usually look beyond the basic facade. What else is there to see? What details does the home have? What is the landscaping like? What colors have been utilized? Is the front yard gated off or open to the street?

The foliage here created a window to the side yard. And here was the view.

The pink light coming through the curtains drew me to the window. I pulled back the curtain to a beautiful sky. What a way to start the day.

What’s in your house?

Do your possessions spark conversation, stir creativity, beget imagination, inspire you?

Are you a lover of antiques or must everything be new?

What sort of people are the owners of this carousel horse?

Flowers next to a window in a restaurant

The photo above was taken at Forepaugh’s Restaurant in Saint Paul, Minnesota. They served us a potato bread that was delicious. You can always taste the difference between homemade bread and store-bought bread. If you like homemade bread, here’s a recipe for a quick bread that is flavored with savory herbs. Bon appetit!

Herb and Onion Quick Bread Recipe

Ingredients:

1/2 cup milk
1-1/2 T sugar
1 t salt
1 T butter
1 package yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2-1/2 cups white or whole wheat flour
1/2 small onion, minced
1/2 t dried dill weed
1 t crushed, dried rosemary

Directions:

  1. Scald the milk and dissolve in it the sugar, salt, and butter; cool to lukewarm.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add the cooled milk, minced onions and herbs. Stir well with a large wooden spoon.
  3. When the batter is smooth, cover the bowl with a towel and let the dough rise in a warm place until triple in bulk—about 45 minutes.
  4. Stir down and beat vigorously for a few minutes, then turn into a greased, small loaf pan (or a couple of smaller loaf pans). Let stand in a warm place about ten (10) minutes before putting in a preheated, 350 degree oven.
  5. Bake for about an hour. Smaller loaf pans make bake faster so check accordingly.
