Can't resist braggin' on my man...







ok...I didn't know when I married my man 21 years ago that he was so talented. I knew that he was smooth. (you don't marry a guy after 3 months of dating without "smooth")! I knew he was a salesman extraordinaire. I knew he was a keeper. But I didn't know that he could wield a hammer! It has been so much fun, listening to him swear (kidding!) at his mistakes. Listening to him hum while he is figuring out where the next nail goes. Listening to him dream little greenhouse dreams.
Since he left his sales job last year, he has been out in the new garage...creating away. And this week he created his biggest "house" yet, a special order from Carol, one of the owners of "Justin & Burks" in Sellwood. They have the most wonderful store, full of exotic shells, fantastic light fixtures, and curiosities galore! I can be in there for hours, just soaking up the ambiance. So, I took pics of John's creation, in Justin & Burks, along with other pictures of their amazing store. Enjoy!!! by the way, if you are headed to Sellwood, they are open 7 days a week and their address is
8301 SE 13th, 97202. Your jaw will drop, and you will be inspired!

What a great store! Too bad I'm in NC or I'd be camping there a lot. And it's always so refreshing to hear from people who are crazy about their guys- I was afraid I was the only one :)
