If I don't see you

Through the window, I will see you through the week. Or is it the other way around? Since I have not had the time to post or visit many blogs lately, just wanted to say hi. I have been working late every day. I caugth myself thinking about this tree. A beautiful resource that is everywhere in our homes. Maybe we could begin to consider organic options and adopt a "green design," as a way to be environmentally conscious consumers, choosing sustainable furniture harvested from well-managed forests.

I agree wholeheartedly. I love looking at home designs and particularly like green designs and topics.

Good to hear from you again. Don't stay too busy.

Cris, is that photo of your home?

Ash said...

Hi Cris - great to have you posting again.

Interesting image.

Nice to see you again! I agree, let's go GREEN! One way would be to not destroy furniture but recycle it - or, better yet, don't get new furniture everytime the wind changes!!

My newest furniture pieces are two recliners that my parents bought us 5 years ago ... everything else is recycled, used and well loved.

Blessings

Cris,
That's a pretty intelligent reflection!
I wish more people would understand the importance of not buying wood products of unknown origin. Only then would the destruction of our forests stop.

I hope this period of long work hours will be over soon, we miss you!

Hi Cris, nice to see you again and glad to hear your well.
Yes we also try to live environmentally consciously. We use sustainable furniture (The old bench)and we recycle and we teach our kids to keep the nature clean.
Nice picture !!!

Cris said...

It's nice to be back here and read your comments, I really miss you all. That's not my house, it is a seafood restaurant with such an interesting decor!

Hi Cris,
really nice post, and being an architect I can relate this 'Green' theory. I always feel good when I get to see if someone get appealed by the importance of sustainable issue....(yah,my thesis topic was focused on sustainable housing in third world coountries)...am happy for this post..:))
Keep posting..!!

Cris,
I am profoundly saddened by the air disaster in Sao Paulo, Brasil which caused the tragic death of so many people.
I am offering my deep felt condolences to the victims and families of the accident.
