There is an emphasis on hand- crafted details in this high-end kitchen. The homeowners decided to frame a herring- bone pattern above the cook top....    .... and installed a 2"x2" Bee tile in each corner of the frame!     Thank you, T.O., for sharing your pictures!

11 years ago today, Drupal version 1.0 was released. DRU and I celebrated early by giving the Drupal “Drop” a plaster bath.
