Three of My Favorite Things

1.)  My favorite Facebook page is John Simpkins from Eastern Oregon.

His Facebook page says he is an Artist, Photographer and Designer.  I love his pictures and the pictures of his paintings in progress.   I first learned of his work and his love of community on Facebook on a PBS Oregon Art Beat Segment.  I’m amazed by how fast the community responds to any needs John may have, any where from advice on how to fix a computer problem, to wood, and cookies delivered in early November!


This is just one of the many cool pictures John recently took of St. Andrew’s School and the Teacherage where he lives and works; it was taken on May 25, 2017.

2.)  Flor Creative design found at sell carpet squares made from recycled fishing nets.

They come in a variety of colors and patterns.  This flooring is one of my favorite things, because I love the geometric patterns that can be created.  They are durable, and when they are finished being used the company takes them back to be recycled into new squares.  Recently, I saw these carpet squares in a home I visited; they were good looking and durable. Company’s like Google use this product.

Check out their web page to see the variety of the products they sell.

3.)  HoleRoll Roller Blinds and Window Shades found at

I just saw this online today, and I’m fascinated by them.

I think this is a great idea…When I was teaching blinds like these would have really created a cool looking space, not to mention how they would have helped with making power point presentations easier to see on sunny days!  I can honestly say I have not tried this product, but I want to buy them to see what they are like.

Happy June 1st!
