{Cosa fare con.. Vecchie teiere}

Lo ammetto, stavo proprio per non farla, stavo per scrive un post in cui vi dicevo che per un po mi avreste più vista, però ci sono.. un po di tempo lo dedico al post, alla ricerca di foto e a voi che mi seguite sempre.. Il matrimonio è sempre più vicino e ci sono sempre tante cose da fare, cose che dimentico, cose dell’ultimo minuto e inviti ancora da dare in giro.. Però oggi è lunedì, oggi c’è la rubrica, ed è un appuntamento che so che aspettate sempre con tanta attesa, e quindi chi sono io per deludervi??

Cosa fare con..
Vecchie teiere

Che siano in porcellana, in peltro, in argento, smaltate o altro, sò che almeno una l’avete in casa, e non dite di no, che inizio a frugare in ogni pensile della cucina e mobile in sala dove tenete il servizio buono..

Le idee in giro per il web son carine, la prima in assoluto, quella più trovata, 
è sicuramente l’idea di usare la teiera come porta fiori..

Magari messa in qualche angolo di casa, 
con qualche libro o un vecchio oggetto, per dare luce..

L’idea del centro tavola, poi, la adoro..
magari per qualche matrimonio..(giusto per restare in tema)

E i più creativi che ne creano punta spilli..??

E chi le usa come appendini??
Oppure come nido per gli uccellini?? *-*

E degli ingegnosi che ne fanno lampade??

O fontane??

O come divisore per i libri??
Anche se, dopo tutte queste idee, la mia resta sempre l’idea migliore, o almeno lo è per me..
versare il thè agli amici, da una bellissima teiera..
non è il massimo del suo utilizzo?? Non la pensate come me??
Che bella figura fa la padrona di casa con un bel servizio da thè e con una stupenda teiera??

Magari per un bel teaparty, come vanno tanto di moda adesso!!

E voi?? come la usate???
Spero che le mie idee vi siano piaciute..
A lunedì, con tanti altri spunti..

Understanding the Codes

The International Code Council committee hearings have been going on for the last week and usually its pretty newsworthy.  The question though for me is… have the moves taking place this week been good or bad for our industry?  So far I honestly haven’t been able to ascertain exactly how we will end up after this latest cycle.  And reading various reports and e-mails from people at the hearings has me even more confused.  So I’ll sit on this one, get more clarity and report in the next week or two.  Needless to say it is VERY important that we ALL get a clear idea of what happened there because it WILL have an effect on our industry.


–  Good news/bad news on the latest Architectural Billings Index (ABI) as the number was down, but is still in the positive territory.  Now the key is to watch how this progresses but this gives us a flavor for next year, and the verdict about 2014 has been mixed lately, some expecting growth and others calling for a downturn.

–  I’m a little late on this one, but major congrats to PPG on their new online Education Center.  It’s a treasure trove of great info and the layout is spectacular.  Kudos to Rob Struble, Glenn Miner and the entire team that worked on it.  Well done!!
–  Speaking of education, the Glass Management Institute is now open for registration and I urge you to look at the link and consider taking the course.  Yes I am biased as I am teaching one of the courses, but I truly believe in this effort, and think the other courses and instructors are simply off the hook and worth your attention.  Check it out… and be prepared I’ll be pestering you more about it as we get closer!
–  Anyone have any clue what the whole “Google Glass” adventure is?  Not sure I want my website up in my eyes… what am I missing?

–  Last this week… Blackberry fans (like me) are becoming more and more rare but evidently the new phone (with the physical keyboard) that Blackberry is coming out with could give them momentum.  Last week it got a great review in the Wall Street Journal. I for one remain hopeful because I will stick with that brand til the end.   My fat little fingers need that keyboard!


–  Cool piece on using Twitter for the search.
–  Great story on Chinese reporter covering the Earthquake that interrupted her wedding.
–  Up here for the laughs…

Quick thinking TV weather person here when the automated camera goes haywire….

Spring in the Front Yard and a Ramsign Giveaway!



A few weeks ago I removed a boxwood hedge that was blocking off an area by our front door.  Although they were healthy, they had gotten way too big and it was time for them to go!



Luckily, I have a friend who wanted them.  I was so glad.  They were huge and would be a nice addition to their yard.
So out with the old….


And in with new perennials and annuals.  And in with the Weeping Cherry (that was there all along) blooming like crazy!  :)
