Southern California Style


We celebrated my friend, Claire's birthday a
few days ago in Newport Beach.
Isn't this a cute chair in Debbie's guest/daughter's room?
It wouldn't be too difficult to paint
 a plain chair with accents like above, would it?

Pretty tufted benches at the foot of the bed.  
Everything is in coordinating Raoul Textiles.



It was sort of hard to kick me out of Debbie's guest room.

But I was excited to head south to San Diego for my mom's birthday...

Ever wonder what happened to our 
furniture from Mammoth?
A lot of it is in my sister's upstairs loft.

I suggested painting the builder's grade 
honey oak banister black 
(much better)
and adding wall to wall seagrass 
(very durable with dogs and easier to keep clean than the white carpeting that was here).

The weather is great. 
We kept the upstairs French doors open all weekend.
(sorry to all of you in cold climates).
I like how she has curtains on the balcony.

I gave my sister this 
(she doesn't smoke--but I think it's funny).

My mom's birthday present is an airplane ticket 
to San Francisco to come see us.

Happy birthday, Mom!
