I’ve been so consumed by my thrifty California adventures and new discoveries, that I’ve completely lost sight of the original purpose of this blog! Blame it on ADHD…whatevs…but I’ve circled back. So here’s an update on our home before & after.
The entryway and staircase had ugly matching glass chandeliers. Out with the old, in with the uh…older.
Outdoors, our yard is getting a makeover too. The landscaping is an ongoing process. Determined to tackle this alone, I’m getting serious guns from shoveling into our granite slopes. The neighbors probably think I’m bat-crap crazy. “Check this out, Bob! She’s digging to China and cursing at the shrubs again!”
It’s so much easier to hit an estate sale than spend a day performing manual labor. More to that point, our patio recently got some jewelry courtesy of a dirt-cheap find.
My love for midcentury surfaced after inheriting a couple pieces of my very fashionable grandmother's MCM furniture. I'd always loved clean lines...and became obsessed. I am a hard working single mother of two adorable boys and a clownish Frenchie named Petunia.
I've lived all over Southern California, Dallas, Texas and relocated to Bainbridge Island, WA to escape the heat, crowds and soak up the nature and MCM.

Love your dining room set. It is absolutely beautiful. Is this one of the pieces you inherited?
Thank you Rebecca! It’s actually the first piece I bought once I caught the fever (LOL). I got it from Sleek and Simple Lines. They’re in San Clemente and I have a blog about them that you can read in case you’re interested. I’ll send you their Craigslist link. https://midcenturyobsession.com/2012/09/08/sleek-and-simple-lines-a-healthy-alternative-to-crack/
Thanks for reading!
