Before
After
Even more design fun followed
in 2004, when we opened our
grocery & restaurant,
Uncle Jimmy's American Home
Store,
for westerners living in Taiwan.
I turned our signature
plaid into plaid  tile
countertops.
This was a fun stage of life!  An American interior designer
and I opened our own business in Taipei.  Our first project?  
Design a mosaic garden for a 27-story office building!
