Asparagus Interiors was featured in this week’s Sunday Chicago Tribune, covering “easy and inexpensive ways to remodel a home on a tight budget.”
I worked with the Grier family of Naperville, to remodel their kitchen and living room. They are passionate about growing plants and we decided to reuse some of their existing cabinetry. We added glass shelves above for lighting the plants and making the space appear more open. Incorporating Ice Stone countertop surface, made of recycled glass, concrete and crushed mother of pear shell. A beautiful addition and use of recycled material.
Reusing existing cabinetry and repainting are easy ways to freshen up a space and save money.

Craft night in Naperville. This week I hosted craft night for my book club. Fiber Artist, Kate Cavanagh – PokeyTree.com, taught our group how to make vessels using sheep and Alpaca fiber. We learned how to make the bowls using water, soap, wool and a little elbow grease. Looking to host a craft night for your friends, contact PokeyTree.

What an exciting weekend we had, visiting my family and stopping across the Mississippi river in LeClaire, IA to see Antique Archaeology.
I was really excited to meet Mike and Danielle. Their show American Pickers is on the History channel.
Their vast knowledge of all things vintage was impressive and their time spent with all who stopped was generous. Try to see their show on History, it’s a great find.

I love to blog about artists who create with vivid colors and mixed mediums. Check out Nina Falk Glass, her work blends colored glass in fluid shapes that is inspired by music. A musician and artist, Nina creates with movement in mind.
