Review: The Sans Soucie Art Glass Door Designer

Glass Door with Cubes Floating 3DWhen I first ordered from Sans Soucie Art Glass Studios I wasn’t quite sure what to expect since I have never ordered a custom door before. I had a concept of what I wanted in a front-door for my home, but I wasn’t quite sure how to make that a reality. It all started with the easy stuff, like determining dimensions and such, but when it came to the hard part Sans Soucie’s design staff was really there for me. I felt like it was a collaboration between myself and the designer. I had a vision, but no expertise, and the designer brought the skill and expertise to turn what was in my imagination into a reality. They also opened my mind to different design possibilities that I hadn’t even considered. They took my basic idea and combined it with designs that were already in their portfolio to customize a door that was so much more than I had dreamed of.

Not only that, but they treated my little household project with just as much respect as they would a job for a big chain restaurant. The designer took everything into consideration, looking at everything from my exterior architecture to my interior décor in order to design a door that would accentuate my home. Once I saw the design on paper, I knew that I had to have it as part of my home. The best part though, was that the entire process took just one day and we were ready to go on the project.

I didn’t have to think twice once I decided to place my order. I got the scale drawing within a week of putting down my deposit and found myself excitedly waiting. Overall, I am incredibly pleased with the beautiful, unique door that they created for me and it is a wonderful addition to my home.

Thai Smile Palm Springs

Thai Smile lunch in a Palm Springs must for any Thai loving tourist. The restaurant is a childhood favorite. They have since expanded into a second local in the desert. The Palm Canyon Thai Smile is moving its downtown local somewhere else downtown Palm Springs. I’m sure the move would not be for awhile.

Pictured is the lunch Pad Thai. Great stubble sweet flavor with no heat. The rice noddles were cooked perfect. This dish is a very light Pad Thai. Next time I’m going to ask them to add a lot of heat and cilantro. Or just ask for pad Thai how they like it…. Sometimes that works.

Hasty-Bake BBQ Ribs – Palm Springs

Another mouth watering Palm Springs smoke-out on the Hasty-Bake. This time, spicy, sticky baby back ribs.

Started by loading the ribs with simple BBQ rub and soaking wood chips.

Got the fire going to 250 degrees.

Put the ribs on, added wood chips and we be smoking! The hard part is leaving them alone for the first hour.

Palm Springs Desert Oasis

Being home in the desert always inspires me to post on here. It has always been my goal to live life somewhat like I’m on a vacation… I can tell I’ve lost that. Here is to bring it back!
