Home Bunch Feature!

I’ve had a love affair with Home Bunch since I first moved to California.  Moving from the East coast was quite a transition and meant a change of lifestyle.  Life here is geared to the outdoors and I wanted my home to lend itself to that…easy, bright, comfortable and welcoming.  Luciane’s blog Home Bunch was such an inspiration with gorgeous homes from all over!  But best of all, she lists sources for everything, including furniture, light fixtures, cabinet hardware and yes, paint colors!  It has been an invaluable tool in finding that elusive something.

You can imagine how thrilled I was to have Luciane reach out to me to see if I would like to have The Little Glass House featured on her Beautiful Homes of Instagram.  YES!!  I dug through pictures, tried to remember sources, wrote a short synopsis about the house and she put together a beautiful comprehensive house tour. See it here. So cool!

If you want to see some truly beautiful homes, please check out her blog or you can also find Home Bunch on Instagram.  I know you will love it as much as I do.

out with the rosemary!

When we moved to The Little Glass House seven years ago, we redid the landscaping. You can see some of the changes here.  Things grow incredibly fast and big here in Southern California, and before I knew it, that cute tiny rosemary hedge became a four foot monster!  Here’s what the back yard looked like when we bought our house as seen from inside… Continue reading
