seeing sea glass…

Let me start off by saying I’m not an expert on sea glass.  I won’t go into the different names and categories.  There are plenty of good books on the subject.  I am however, an insatiable collector (read addict) of these colorful frosted beauties tossed on the beach by the sea. Continue reading

when coastal living comes to call

So one day I get an e-mail from the homes editor at Coastal Living magazine wondering if I would be interested in being in one of their issues.  At first I thought it must be a mistake and how did they even find me?  Thank you Instagram!  A few months after that first e-mail, on three rare sunny days (it had been a stormy February), Coastal Living came to call at The Little Glass House.

3 instagrammers i love

I love sharing inspiring Instagram accounts and honestly, there are so many, I don’t think I will ever be at a loss to find them!

Paige lives in a stunning Alabama farmhouse that she remodeled and was recently featured in Country Living Magazine. Do yourself a favor and take a gander. I know you will love her and her home as much as I do! Continue reading

Guest Post: what I love about The Little Glass House

This week I (Kelsey, Elizabeth’s daughter) have taken over my mom’s blog post, while she has been crazy busy getting the new East Coast abode together. She’s been kind (and crazy?) enough to trust me and a few girlfriends to take a little weekend getaway to The Little Glass House. Santa Barbara is the perfect place to go and recharge. It’s a short drive from Los Angeles (about an hour and a half) but feels like planets away. An hour and a half in LA gets you about two miles on the 405 during rush hour. Driving up the 101 is a beautiful trip in itself and every time I step foot in The Little Glass House, it’s like a breath of fresh air. It has quickly become one of my favorite destinations.
