Open House

We are happy to finally post pictures of our furnished house. Granted, collecting furniture hasn't been a priority over the past few years, but do note the groovy rugs we found at the Pottery Barn outlet in San Marcos (TX). The upstairs "master bedroom" (not pictured here) is still a work in progress due to the bizarrely constructed 1940s staircase that prevents shimmying up anything bigger than a bookshelf.

Couch from Austin-American Statesman.com, rug from Pottery Barn outlet, coffee tables from Craigslist. So everything together is like 50 bucks.

We have cable tv, the first time ever (except in the Peace Corps ... in Eastern Europe)

Out guest room, in many ways, is much nicer than our "master bedroom" which has no dresser.

Our dining room has a view of Puget Sound, Vashon Island, and Mt. Rainier.

Our retro bathroom ensures a fun and invigorating bathing experience.



Other than our home, I must say that we simply love our area - West Seattle. The other Sunday we visited the West Seattle Farmer's Market, picked up a glass of strawberry-lavender lemonade, a 4 lb. marionberry pie, some veggies, a bouquet of flowers, and samples of goat cheese. Above us stood the stunning, snow-capped Olympic Mountains, across the street one of 5 amazing local coffee shops (serving Stumptown and cupcakes). We feel very fortunate to be living in a resort-like community. If any of this sounds fun, come by and stay the night! We like company.
