DA CRIB: pt.4, Da big finish

Alright, alright, just one more massive photo dump and done. Here is the main door, heading into the living room. It's all pretty self-explanatory, so I'll let you just e-wander around. Just after the door is a small half bath to the left, then the living room just sort of opens up and wraps around a big central buffet with a BUILD IN RECORD PLAYER SITUATION (love you, 1950).









(That door way is the hall leading back to the girls room and our room, for ref)













This area has the front of the buffet on it's right. Eventually I would love to do a pretty pendant light and a formalish dining situation. For now it's just sort of a big empty space.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Original prints of the house the year it was built (1950). I adore the one of the original owner's wife gazing off over the end of the property. I feel like I maybe understand a bit of what she was feeling... this place is so magical. These shots were featured in Sunset magazine that year. I'll frame them, don't worry.





I love the look of the mountains in this photo... had to include it.


And then back, back, back to that hallway at the end of the living room... The girls room is the first to the right.








Someone commented earlier and said she would kiss this wall of storage every time she walked passed it. That is *exactly* how my heart feels. Lullz. Bathroom to the left, our room beyond.





I felt like this was an appropriate final shot. For as awesome a home as this is, we still live here. And it sort of just looks like this all the time. This morning I was sitting on the couch looking up at the hill and just feeling so thankful that there is beauty every where I turn, although it's easy to get stuck in life's insanity and forget it. For as chaotic as things get inside this house, there is always a little spot in my line of sight that soothes my soul if I just remember to look. I'm so grateful for that.

Come visit sometime!

  1. I CANNOT get over that wall of windows and the mountains and the sun! I'm dying. It's so cold and gloomy in the PNW, I keep petitioning for a move to CA and all that sunshine!

  4. Okay, first of all, even the spam comments on your blog are amazing! WTH?!?!

    I feel like this house tour was the best Christmas present I thought would never happen. Because being a total stranger, it seemed rude to beg/demand you show us your house.

    What a gorgeous space! Living in suburbia, land of vanilla houses, I always love getting to see unique spaces. I feel like yours is apartment therapy house tours, Catholic addition-the best combo possible. Your views are just absolutely breathtaking. Like, "Need proof God exists? Look at this!" When your kids are grown and you want to travel, you can rent it out to Midwestern bound Catholic couples as a retreat house.

    Okay, enough creeper drooling over your home. Thanks for the tour!!

  5. I see "Encountering the Old Testament" on the shelf... Did you or your husband, by chance, ever take PBS I with Dr. Hahn?

  6. SO GOOD. i just love all the gardens and outdoor space. There are so many special corners to just lose yourself in the beauty of creation! They just don't make houses like yours anymore! and that kitchen!

  7. All these pictures of your beautiful house with the bright California sunshine streaming in are making me think what the heck am I doing suffering through freezing winter in Massachusetts? Your house makes me want to move to Cali!

  8. I love that you kept everything original. It wrecks me to see so many homes stripped of the original character. All that view is out of this world!!!

  13. I remembered my early 20s when I used to fall asleep at night without thinking of anyone, but as time flies the feelings inside me keep changing as I started having heartbreaks from people I love and trust.
    My sweet days were ruined by my Husband after using me to get for my family wealth. My heart was broken when I overheard him on the phone telling his cousin his plans to dump me after achieving his goals, we had fight after that before he relocated to another city.
    I gets supper sad feelings for being used but I truly love him and want him back, I think more of him before sleep, I see him in every dream and I wakes up almost every night wishing he’s back. I tried to move on but it wasn’t possible because I can’t let got. I needed a spiritual interpretation why I can’t let go after 6 months.
    Dr. Wakina was the perfect solution, he is a high profiled spell doctor. I never expected Dr. Wakina to review my situation and make it perfect, love doctor discovered the genuine side of my husband and reasons why I can’t move on and perfected all. It was hard to believe until my husband came back as a man I fell in love with. I learnt after the spell that nothing can separate me from my soul mate or dreams. I’m happy for the nice time I spent with Dr. Wakina, he can be contacted via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

  14. I did researches for spiritual healing through love spell, from what I read it’s very possible for a spell doctor to cast a love spell and bring back lost lover no matter the distance. I also read that any spiritual problem can be solved by a genuine spell doctor, but not everyone can be helped. I was lucky to have contacted Dr. Wakina through his email [dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com] after some researches. My Husband made me go through hell after he left me with our 18 months old daughter to live with his mistress. One of his reasons was he is not yet ready to cater for our child. The situation made me frustrated, I was confused all the time, and I was gradually having brain injury because I was helpless and hopeless. I pleaded to Wakina to help me mentally and to indeed bring him to me his current marriage covenant and make our feelings for each other stronger. After the spell was cast, though I had a little faith that it will work, I was surprised at the end of the day given to me by Dr. Wakina, my Husband returned back to us. Not only that, our feelings for each other changed, the spell cleared away the doubts he had on catering for our kid. Am so excited right now. [dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com] is the email that brought me joy.

  15. My case is different for i know what Doctor Ehimen did for me this 2017. I was heart broken by my husband because i discovered that he has been cheating on me with his mistress and he filled a divorce on me December last year and i was confused on what to do. I searched for help around from spiritual helpers but all was to no avail not until i was referred to Doctor Ehimen by a co-worker who told me that he can help me out on my situation. I contacted him and explained what am passing through and he said to me that my case is different that if others are complaining about their marriages that mine will be different because i will keep on rejoicing about my marriage as far i have made contact with him. I did all what he told me to do and my husband came back to me within 12 to 16 hours and we are living in peace and harmony again. Viewers reading this article can E-mail him at ( Doctorehimenspelltemple@hotmail.com ) or call +1 (914)-517-3229 for more info.

  16. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Minerva D. Taylor from UK
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Adams can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Adams. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Adamsusmanultimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

  18. First time poster, long time reader... got to say, these spam comments are CRACKING ME UP!

    Also, your house is amazing (that VIEW! You should never leave) We just moved to the South Bay/Redondo area and have been looking for a place to buy that is in a somewhat reasonable area but is also larger than a closet (California prices are so depressing).

    Love the MCM vibe + furnishings you have going on. Great mix of beautiful pieces and little reminders of the faith. Thank you for sharing!
