Recipe here on Giver’s Log.
Have you tried Google’s newish tool that let’s you search using an image? Basically, instead of typing text into the search bar you upload an image and Google Finds similar images.
I tried it this morning with a gorgeous chair that Jodi told me about last night.
It’s sold out on One King’s Lane, but I wondered if I could find something similar.
I didn’t. Bummer.
But look what Google found for me instead….
Definitely inspiring search results.What a fun little game!
Jake took over the basement remodel. He decided the best thing to do is finish it, as in drywall and all.
As a result, I have a folder full of ideas that we’re not going to use. But you might want to.

Photos of our basement coming soon. We’ve come a long way, baby.
Thanks for clicking over. Don’t you just love Reichel’s blog? I know I do.
I hope you’ll stay here for a bit and have a look around.
The party starts at 8 pm. You’ve already eaten dinner so I’m serving dessert.
…and fancy coffee drinks.
We’ll play Oscar Bingo while we watch the show.
And since we’re just pretending, I think I’ll wear this…
Will you be watching the Oscars? Tell me what you’ll be eating, drinking, wearing (for real or pretend).

I don’t know about you, but too many walls on my home are blank. I’ve been trying to fix that but often have a hard time finding things I like. So why not make something of my own? Even if it’s temporary until I find something else, bare walls do not make a cozy home.
Here are some ideas I’m mulling over:
1. Little Green Notebook makes $4 art with foam core and a large photo she had printed at FedEx Office.
2. Designer Gideon Mendelson used the floral silhouettes seen below in a gorgeous living room. With the right frame this could be a pretty simple DIY.
3. Amy Meier offers a great tutorial for framing book pages with a special touch.
Have you come across any other great DIY art ideas? Let me know and I’ll post them to share with everyone.
Love tacos? And pasta? Here’s the best of both worlds.
I strayed from the recipe just a bit and used a whole box of Barillla “large” pasta shells (instead of only 12) and a jar of Ortega taco sauce (rather than just a cup).
Yum. Jake approves. This one’s going in the rotation.

Seeing these mugs in the latest Pottery Barn catalog reminded me of how cute I think Santa Claus is with rosy cheeks are.
Here’s a fun little game. Type each letter of the alphabet, one at a time, into your web browser and see which site automatically pops up. I tried it.

Have you ever tried this fun little game?
In Tuesday’s post, I shared the overall floor plan for our living room.
Next, I want to share the elevation drawings I completed during the six week interior design class I’m so glad I was able to take.
What is an elevation drawing? Basically, an elevation is a one dimensional (flat) drawing of the three dimensional space. It is seen ‘head on’ or as if you were facing the particular wall from the front.
The elevation takes the floor plan one step further. You use the same elements in a room, but this time you’re able to get an even better idea of what the final product will look like.
So here is each wall of our living room. For each wall I’ll show you how the wall looked the last time you saw it, the elevation drawing and what the room looks like with the drawing at least partially implemented.

(This drawing differs slightly from the floor plan in that I opted to use an existing table rather than purchase a new bench.)

As you can see, drawing elevations helps you see the possibilities for your room without having to make any commitments before you’re ready.
