The way we do business has really changed since I was a kid. I remember banking was done in person; on a hand shake. Now banking is done online, but only after you have a user name, password, picture validation, phone verification, pin number, and checked the little box stating that you’ve read the lengthy […]

I was working on a bathroom mini remodel and I wanted to change the original old fashioned drawer pulls out for something more interesting and modern.  Yes, I know that these pulls are still available, but unless you are going for a antique look- or something else that I like to call “Old Lady” – […]
