Authors: GiGiWe live in a fog bank.
How many people can say that they wore sweaters and beanies on July 5th?
Well, we've actually had a lovely June. We've had sun almost every day and a high of 70 at least one of those. But every morning there is fog. This will continue until late August, when we'll get a full 4 weeks of regular sun, mid 60's-...
Backyard - 10 months later
- Published on Thursday, 28 June 2012
Authors: GiGiJust a few before and afters of our backyard. We have more work to do (always).
There's always more to do (like maybe get rid of all the old wood behind the swing. I didn't realize how much our indoor / outdoor rug faded since last year - a little disappointed in that - but in our insanely warm June in San Francisco, we've been using...
I just googled cabin chic

T's Montessori Room - Color Updates

Authors: GiGiWhen we first moved in, this is what we started with in here.
Note the uneven temporary curtains, furniture that didn't work (but was perfect for his old room), and the mattress on the floor (oops - ended up getting mold underneath).
Mama couldn't stand the uneven curtains, so they just came down. We bought a new bed, built a low...

Authors: GiGiI think I used to be a pretty anxious person.
Walking through the halls at school, before any test, talking to new people, attending a sporting event - all gave me a major stomach ache.
I don't know if anyone would have ever guessed that about me.
As I've gotten older and more confident that's pretty much gone away. I can make...

Authors: GiGiAnyone know what this thing is?
No, seriously. It used to be on our bathtub faucet
See it there? We've been staring at it for a year and I was pretty disgusted by it (an off white rubbery thing), but Bubbs was convinced that it was holding the whole bathroom together or something, so we left it on. Till I got a bug up my butt...

Cutting and Sawing and Drilling and Dreaming - Closet Fun

This monstrosity was my closet.
I don't have drawers small enough to be useful underwear and sock drawers so I used these cubes that sat on my closet floor along with 50% of my shoes.
My closet has a single narrow door with a lot of space on either side - but it is super dark and not set up in any way that is useful. Plus the...

Authors: GiGiNo, not the show - is that still on anymore?
A few months ago we signed up for Homeexchange.com. It is essentially a website that links up homeowners. You post an ad about your house, where you want to go, and then other people contact you (or you contact them) to see if you can make a match in dates, times, and locations!
And we re-arrange the dining room once again!

Authors: GiGiThis wall has kinda always bugged me.
When we moved in I had this idea for rustic floating shelves to display all of my pretty white bud vases against the blue wall, but that never happened. Instead we found this great midcentury piece that has done the job okay.
Problem was, the wall was just too big for it. I hated the mirrors and...
