Many people thought it couldn’t be done; it was impossible to build a bridge that would span over a mile-wide strait of turbulent, churning waves whipped up from the Pacific Ocean. Dreams and ingenuity have a way of overcoming fears and doubts however, and the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge speaks to such an accomplishment.

Art You Can Rest Your Drinking Glass On

Tables create spaces that bring us together. They start off being functional pieces of furniture to place objects on and then become something more when we “family and friend” around them. Whether you are gathering for a meal, pausing over a cup of tea, or relaxing with a glass of wine, a table is the focal point of a room and serves as sacred space in your home. Even end tables or side tables that aren’t front and center, still become the first place we stop when coming home. We empty our arms of “stuff” and let the table catch the burdens of the day.

More Than a Gift

They say that experiences are more valuable than material gifts.  We would agree…spending time with the people we care about, making memories and creating history tops the list of ways to mark an occasion.  There are events and occasions though, where we want to do both.  We want to attend the retirement party, college graduation, or business recognition event and we don’t want to do that empty-handed.
