Mi casa es su casa.... :)

My house is your house:)
 I started this blog in 2009, shortly after selling the beast and moving into our 500 sq. ft. garage. I started writing out of boredom, to be honest. You did read the 500 sq. ft. part right? 
 
Anyway, I thought I'd start blogging about the house of my dreams. The house that truly built me:)
 
 
And you guys were with me every step of the way:)
I've received quite a few emails from some of you who never got to see the ole gal when she was on the last two historic home tours. Sooooo,
 
 
I'm gonna open her up:) To whoever reads this and wants to come bid her goodbye:( sniff sniff...
This Saturday. 10am- 2pm :)
 
 
And while you're in the neighborhood... You can check out my fav store in all the land- FOUND.
It's literally around the corner:)
 
 
Theeen of course, you can go have the best ever lunch at... UP :)
So there you have it! Cry, Shop and Eat... What more could a girl ask for??

We can't wait to see how you spread your love and talent to another "ugly" in downtown Mesa. Your blog is my mother's only must read and she looks forward to every Tuesday.

  14. Well Dorie, the ONE week that I miss reading your blog is this past Saturday's opportunity to view your sweet bungalow... WHY am I always a day (or two) late & a dollar short?? ;) I hope your turnout was wonderful! Looking forward to your future homes and projects. You really are amazing, creative, and gifted! Keep it up, I support you 100%...
