My nephew Matthew Kinkead is visiting, to learn how to blog and be my intern. There is no better way to learn than to do — so here is his first guest post. Matthew writes:
After traveling from Louisville, KY my retro-wonder Aunt Pam picked me up from the airport with a mid-mod packed week planned for us. Less than an hour later we had stopped at a place we both know and love, the ReStore in Springfield, MA- and as always, they did not let us down. I guarantee if you dig in and get your hands a little dirty you will find some great treasures, although at first glance the ReStore seems a little intimidating with items everywhere. Before we even got to the entrance we checked out their wonderful collection of window shutters. Oh man, did they have all colors and sizes. We really like these little ones with the “pine tree” cut out. Wouldn’t they look great with a fresh coat of paint? Remember, when buying shutters make sure you measure your windows height and the width so they can close perfectly.
Affordable plumbing fixtures
I call this sink “wasabi” green and my, do I love it. It is masculine, not too big, but still eye catching. The short faucet fits it so well and looks so good. I would totally put something like this in my bathroom, if only I weren’t 850 miles away from home.
