perfect just the way you are



This house is such a beauty. Its so nice to come across a house being lovingly restored to its original glory. Besides I always crush at the sight of scalloped shingle siding on the upper level, which is a hallmark of victorian and queen anne styles and can be found all around portland.

I ordered these cards for the blog from moo and they are finally here! Will be handing them out to the local homes featured on the blog. Wooppee!!

to porch or not to porch?

So I've been obsessing of late. If you know me at all you'll know I'm a fan of a great grand porch, the sprawling, lazy afternoon, sipping mojitos lounger porch. However, not all of us are blessed with such porches as for instance, this massive stunner in Laurelhurst (a wrap-around porch to boot!).


So I was wondering and dreaming of some fantastic porch additions and found some goodies.

good day sunshine


Every once in a while you come across a house that just feels right. It has that magic... the ambiance of the street, the trees, the house all clicked together. A picture cannot do it justice.

into the brightness


This bright blue and bright red-pink house were sitting pretty right by one another and I just couldn't resist. Perfect for this amazing weather we are finally having!

open house


Spotted this darling Piedmont Bunglaow. The orange exterior works, especially when its balanced with such a neutral interior.

house hunting


Walking in the Abernathy area and saw this house for sale which is very similiar to the one I posted on last week. Again great details. Love the old school corner sinks. Reminds me of one of my favorite bathroom renovations by Anna of Door Sixteen.
