We’ve been big fans of Restoration Hardware for years and when we lived in Houston shopped at the one near what was Town & Country but according to the store locator its gone, while there is one off Westheimer Road.
Here is a really great photo, I love the steampunk look, or maybe it’s “This Island Earth” look!

Drake Homes Inc feels that helping to support, and to promote, small business owners is a very good thing. I’d like to suggest one today in this post. It’s a one-man business: the superb photographer Richard Johnson.
Rich is a New Yorker and travels to many fairs and shows in the state to show his photography and sell his wares. However, you don’t have to go there to see his work, it is available on his site at Spruce Mountain Photography.
His note cards and posters (in three sizes) are available online as well. The charming red bird is a Male Northern Cardinal and posters can be found here, in the Spruce Mountain Photography shopping cart.
This poster would be a great accent to any room in a Drake Homes Inc family home!
Yes, making new concrete look aged. Hear it on the phone tonight , from the story teller I posted about yesterday, Jeff Carroll. He said something like, “Tell your readers to use buttermilk to age concrete, they’ll enjoy learning about it.”
Jeff and I have been friends for 20 years, but buttermilk? He said he once built a concrete and stone fence, but the concrete looked too new. He got buttermilk and put it in an old hand pump sprayer. Not many weeks later the lichen and algae started growing all over the fence and aged the new concrete nicely.
If you’re interested, perhaps wanting to age a new yard statue, birdbath or any decorative concrete item, there are several easy-to-find articles about the process. This one, at eHow, uses buttermilk, yogurt, and moss: http://www.ehow.com/how_6143908_make-concrete-look-aged.html
Even Martha Stewart mentions the technique: http://www.marthastewart.com/268962/hypertufa-pots
