    Usually great resources like this appear a week after I needed them, this time the timing is perfect. I´ve just started work on a redesign for a client who wants exactly this kind of retro/antique/dusty look. Thanks! You have saved me hours or maybe even days of research by putting all these resources in one place…

    May I simply say nice to read a alleviation to search out person who actually realizes just what they may be discussing on the internet. You certainly have learned to take a difficulty to light and allow it to necessary. More people require to learn it all and understand this particular section of the story. I cannot believe you aren’t very popular as you actually have the gift.
