this is one of my favorite things in the whole house. its all of our finger prints. i figured since michael is knee deep in fingerprints all day, what a great way to incoporate his life in the house (considering he says that the house is nothing but what i want in it...that's right buddy). so one day we all drove to the pd, michael fingerprinted us, he played around in photoshop to sharpen it all up and voila!!!

cool -- cool and everything looks so nice and new...my house is vintage '88 and the newest I've ever lived in.

Grew up in a 1930 number in Ohio
Owned a 1923 bungalow in Tampa
Owned a 1969 crap shack in Tampa
and this baby is new 1988 (but not really)

Love all the black - I've got a lot of black as well and dark brown:)
