My husband and I have rented in San Francisco for around two years and we LOVE the City, but as you may know SF housing prices are some of the highest in the country. Continue reading “We Bought a House… and It Needs Work!”
This is the first sentence.
Have I mentioned that we’re only the second owners of our lovely little California bungalow? Well, we are and the elderly couple who first purchased the home in 1946 lived into their mid-90’s. The neighbors have wonderful stories to share about them and I love that our home has such good vibes.
If you want maximum bang for your buck than I highly recommend tissue paper flowers.
Ever need a great hostess or housewarming gift? A set of cocktail napkins makes the perfect little favor and can be made to match the recipient’s style.
Everyone around me is pregnant. But seriously… it may be because we live close to a maternity hospital or perhaps because I’m of that age when people start having families. Either way it means lots of sewing for this gal.
My friend, Carrie, is getting married next month and like many of us she moved to San Francisco for work. Since her family and friends are scattered across the country she wasn’t going to have a bridal shower, which simply wouldn’t do!
While searching for a gift for our niece I came across so many cute tutu’s on Etsy. My general rule: why buy it when I can make it? A traditional pink tutu just wouldn’t work for a girl named Clara Bee hence the light yellow, black, and white color palette. All you need is elastic, tulle, and some thread for this project.
When the fiancé (now husband) and I moved into our second San Francisco apartment we acquired a little more space. And by more space I mean room for small chairs in our living room. Do you know what the rental market is like in SF? Let’s just say two bedrooms is a luxury!
I love our apartment. It has a wonderful layout, good natural lighting, and charming details like crown and picture molding. But there’s always room for improvement.
