Stuff Portrait Friday

It's Stuff Portrait Friday!

Today I will show a magazine subscription, favorite framed picture, and major household pet peeve.

I will start with the peeve. It's my half finished basement. Here is a photo of part of what is supposed to be the spa bathroom. I love my fancy I-talian marble, but where is the fancy thermostatic shower panel? It sits in a dark closet next to where the bathroom is. And how about that Toto super flusher toilet? Still at the plumbing supply store!



Here is another part of the downstairs I really loathe: the ghetto stairs. This paneling needs to come out so we can re-wire and put in new walls. It looks as though the Incredible Hulk has come to visit, eh?



Favorite framed pictures? Well, I have to admit that I am not big on having pictures sitting around. I have latham plaster walls and am still unsure where I want to drill to hang anything, so the walls sit bare. I do have photos on the mantel, but none scream to me as the Favorite, though they are nice. These are the two pics in frames that I like the best. They are in my kitchen:





I do get one magazine in the mail and the newest issue arrived yesterday. Still in the protective wrapper!

Bon Appetit!

Happy Friday, internet friends!

    The hand print is very cute! Your spa bathroom looks like it will be very nice once finished!

    Great stuff for SPF - I now know what you meant in my comments about 'feeling my pain'. Unfinished projects are a pain! Good luck with the finishing details. It will be worth it in the end! :-)

    I love Seattle! YOU HAVE BASEMENTS!!

    California not so much on the basements.

    I always wanted a creepy attic that I could tell my friends that a scary ghost lived up there.

    Thanks for playing!!!

    Ooooh, a turkey handprint picture! Love it!

    I've only been to Seattle once, but I loved it there. LOVED it. It was like San Francisco (where I grew up), only cleaner.

    Thank you all for visiting! The best part of the turkey picture? The story underneath. I have to post that one sometime soon....

    And while I love to cook, I am pretty damn lazy. Tonight we are having pizza. :)

    Oooh la la...a spa bathroom in the basement!

    And as a sidenote: there is NOTHING wrong with keeping your shoes in boxes. I say the more power to ya for that sistah! Northwesterners unite!

    I love cooking magazines...have you ever read Cooks Illustrated? Not as many fancy pictures or ads but great recipies.

    Hi Sue!

    Thank you for stopping by! Yes, yes, yes! I know Cooks Illustrated well! It is a *wonderful * magazine because it also tells you *how* to prepare dishes. I have it on my Amazon wish list, I think. :)


    Hi Lelo!

    You have all my cyclist friends heading down to your neck of the woods this weeknd! (OK, I only have 2 cyclist friends.) And speaking of shoes~ it is kind of 'Martha' that I keep my shoes in their boxes. But my shoe collection is the *only thing* about me that is somewhat organized!
