framed . . .

Over the years, I've picked up various pieces of art from my very talented brothers and sisters . . . most of which were created in the 50's and 60's. This is a period of time that I reflect on now with GREAT appreciation for the art, architecture, and music. I love having these original MCM "Carnochans" in our collection and display them in our house with sincere pride. Most of these pieces were unframed, so I've recently "Home Depot Hacked" some floater frames to help dress them up a little (I got better at this as I went along). Here are some works of my brother David:

a beautiful day in agave . . .

Spring is in the air!

Spring is fast approaching and agave is indeed alive and well. Be sure to check out the Austin Modern Homes tour this weekend - two agave homes are on the tour:

New houses being built and numerous large scale home improvement/landscaping projects have been undertaken by a bunch of current residents. Here are a few highlights from a walk around the hood today:

A couple awesome landscaping projects:
