Valentine’s Day Present

And you guys thought I wasn’t romantic

Bathrooms, Holidays, Restoration Diary,

David’s Valentine’s Day present. Toto toilet with a walnut seat.

David is really the only person who uses the downstairs half bath. I decided it was time for him to get an upgrade!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Roses are red, violets are blue



I woke up happy today. Things might not always go my way but I am always grateful for my husband, family, friends and our little Los Angeles bungalow.

I wish you a heartfelt Happy Valentine’s Day.

Introducing our new site design

Announcements, Holidays, ,

1912 Bungalow Decorated For Christmas, 2006

It has taken us a while to get here, but welcome to our new site design. This site started in 2003 as a way for us to share all the work we were doing to restore our Craftsman bungalow with friends and family. The site now gives me the opportunity to share all the things and people who inspire me.

I am very excited to announce our Make The Season Bright Contest. We want to see interior or exterior photos of your house decorated for the holidays! Schoolhouse Electric Co. is generously giving a light fixture and shade to the winner. Second prize is a $75 Home Depot gift card and third prize is a $50 Home Depot gift card. Just submit a photo of your house decked out for the holidays to enter to win. Voting starts December 15th. The winners will be announced December 24th. The house with the highest number of votes wins. Enter today!

Bungalow Christmas

Our bungalow all decorated for the holidays


It seems like we are running late with everything this Christmas season. I mailed out our Christams cards on the 22nd and I just finished wrapping my last present at 9:45 pm on Christmas Eve. Here are a few pictures of our house decorated for the holidays.

We wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season!

Happy Holidays!

Our bungalow decorated for Christmas


We are going to be staying in Los Angeles for Christmas this year. I will miss the snow and our families but am looking forward to spending our first Christmas in the house.


All decked out for the holidays!


I LOVE the smell of a live tree. It freshens up the whole house.


The fireplace all dressed up.


The dogs have their own stocking but they have to share.

Happy Easter!

Holidays, , ,

Simon & Lulu

Wishing you a Happy Easter from 1912 Bungalow.

It has been a big week at our house. Simon slept through the night and didn’t make any noise to go outside until 8:30 a.m. (FINALLY!) instead of his usual 6 a.m.

We left him out with us instead of keeping him in the bathroom with a baby gate and no accidents or destroyed property. The only bad thing is that Lulu doesn’t like Simon to sleep by her so she keeps sneaking into bed with us after we are asleep.
