recycled bad-ass thing of the day: recycled glass tiles
Sometimes I wish I were in my Forever House.
I wish I'd found the house I wanted to keep forever and leave to my girls.
I'm not.
I'm in a house that I can hopefully build up enough equity in so when I sell it when property value is at an all time high, I can make a decent chunk of change and use that to make a big life and/or location change.
I hope I will be a published author when that time comes so I can work for me and live the dream and all that jazz.
When I try to envision that house, my Forever House, I can't just barely get a fuzzy picture in my head... I know, as much as I say otherwise, I want a big house... two stories, three or more bedrooms, lots of wood (says the environmentalist)... cabin-y, home-y... I HAVE to be near water, I know that... my soul needs water. Whether it is a lake or an ocean or a river, I need to have water near me.
And it would have to be filled with comfy furniture and walls of books.
In the meantime, while I am in my just for now house, I have to resist the urge to redo stuff. My floors were a neccesity. I CAN'T deal with carpet. And in the next year, all of my floors will be redone.
But other stuff? Like my cabinets? And painting? Not necessary and really just a waste of money. Plus, the biggest thing for me is not to put too much of myself in the house. Because it should be a neautral pallet for someone else when I sell it.
But if I could?
If I wanted to take all my cabinets out and replace them and redo the tiles and the backsplashes? I would so totally use recycled glass tiles.

I just think they are so pretty. And if I were making long term changes that reflected MY taste, I would so totally use recycled glass tiles...
Do you know about something bad ass and recycled? Shoot me an email. Link's on the right.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
