Mid Century home with most of it's original features- 2 bd 2ba plus cottage and built in pool. In Woodlake (just outside of downtown) $299,900

Just listed- Cute 3bd 2ba house also in Woodlake for only $179,000

We are lucky enough to have a home with both a living room, and what we call the den with the tv. In our living room we have a lovely mid century couch in a pale golden mustard yellow that I purchased off a friend for cheap. Unfortunately our cats loved it too much, and the arms have gone from a few claw marks to sad shreded to the bone. Hmmm...

$200 for all 4 chairs. Love these! I've always wanted a set up like this in a breakfast nook.

I often rant about the idea of a lawn. We barely bother with ours, half because of laziness, but every spring it comes back somewhat healthy. I guess to not be the ugly house on the street, and for nostalgia purposes I still care a little. Here's what I learned today:

Mow low in the spring: Weeds are annuals. If I chop their heads off before they go to seed, it helps kill the existing weed and prevent new ones.

Mow high and often in the heat: Mow weekly, cutting off only a third of the growth at a time. Use a very sharp blade. Cutting with a dull blade browns the tips of the grass.

Water deeply and early: Lawns need 1 inch of rainfall or watering once a week. And watering should always happen in the morning to prevent disease.

Apply a quality organic fertilizer at least twice a year. Apply a quality calcium treatment. Weeds love soil that is depleted of calcium.


It's getting warm in here








I love this pattern. Summery! $32
