Hi there. If you can’t tell already, I heart old houses – from California bungalows to stately Victorians, from quaint cottages and to sprawling farmhouses. Maybe it’s a form of rebellion (I grew up in a fast-growing suburb of grey and beige “little boxes”) but I love old houses for their character and history. I swoon over built-in cabinets, creaky hardwood floors and, yes, even that musty old house smell.
I dream of owning an original Sears home, but for now I’m happy with my plain little 1940s cottage. This blog is about my journey to spruce up our place with arts and crafts and other old house-inspired touches – and all the vintage/retro finds and envy-inducing houses we encounter along the way. Welcome.
