Last weekend was filled with painting, gardening, celebrating friends’ graduations and listening to the action over at the annual Puerto Rican Pride Parade that took place near my neighborhood. Let me tell you – between hauling potted plants up four flights of stairs and painting an entire room in two coats, I was physically exhausted. My crafty weekdays following that were full of projects (duh) and handling a variety of light bloggy business.
So this was awesome

In case you missed it…

- Yesterday, I shared the story of the house my dad built from reclaimed utility poles.
PS: Here’s a picture my dad today. It didn’t make the cut for yesterday’s log cabin post, but I had to share. I think he might be related to Ernest Hemingway, and I don’t think it’s just the beard. Thoughts?
