Coming soon....























Built in the early 1800's Stinson St.School is being turned into lofts....starting at $200,000 going up to $6oo,ooo....they will be grand and beautiful....buyers will have the option of keeping some of the original blackboards and other fixtures.They are around the corner from the mountain stairs & close to walking trails....what a wonderful lifestyle! Just look at the height of the ceilings and the stunning staircase....I can hardly wait to see them done! Meg was approached by the photographer & had a ton of photos taken on site.....she will be on some postcards they are using for advertising(kind of exciting) They are just around the corner from us and should do wonders for our real estate values!! Hope you enjoyed the tour...all the best~Chrissy~

So much inspiration out there...








Just spent a bit of time looking at some lovely blogs....the kind that make your heart skip a beat...and that got me thinking how lucky I am that so many of you take the time to stop by my little blog...vignette after vignette,your comments keep coming...never seeming to mind that I don't post grand rooms or far away places....so thank you,all of you ! This is a real creative outlet for me...one that I hope to continue for sometime to come! ~Chrissy~

Just a thought.....











Sooooooo.......I spent a few minutes this morning kinda tweeking my little white cupboard in the kitchen.....that got me thinking(something that scares John at the moment) ...what if we replaced the tin doors with.....glass?!?! That way I could enjoy whats inside more easily,right? On the fence about it,let me know what you think....talk soon ~Chrissy~

JDL meets Atlanta Bartlett.......













I just love Atlanta Bartletts style(top two photos)she has a real casual look & feel to her decor don't you think? I also of course love Jeanne D'Arc's style.....not really sure what I ended up with....except a well dusted mantle! Not to worry....you know me,it won't stay like this for long anyway! Enjoy your day ladies and thank you for coming by the ever evolving house ~Chrissy~
