HARDWOOD FLOOR

Transform your home
the long way round

A combination
of instruction
and aggravation

I was born tomorrow
wire-brushed and distressed
clean and nice looking

I can help you discover
and save creative ideas

Make the dirt stick

Contact the human switchboard

 

 

MIND PUDDLE

See what we did there?
I’m surprised you want advice

Find a salt-grain of solace
get the latest in your inbox

Experience one sunny day

Failure is evidenced in memory
surface tension drastically reduced

What a good Mum you are
