We had just moved here in July of 2004 when Justin and I decided to volunteer for the Flower Show. We were working on painting things when we were asked if we could paint a rug on a floor? I said, "sure, we can do a whole room, why?" So long story short, I not only painted the zinnia pattern on the floor (4 days of work) but, we grabbed everything we had and some provided materials and came up with this wonderfully schizoid space. I was flattered with the silver medal. Fortunately, Justin was a floral designer and I was an interior designer so we had the skill set to "make it work".
