So now Auntie L learns how to use the “actual size” option on her iPhone camera email dealie, hoping this means the photos can be big enough that you can actually see them. On the table, for example, can you see the rope detail that I glued onto the top? It was unfinished, and I just used up a bunch of Restoration Hardware greenish sample paint tins to “antique” it.

This white chest came from a neighbor’s moving sale for $25, only it wasn’t white yet. It is now. The chandelier was deeply discounted at Lamps Plus when I stumbled in there one day. I told you I have a lamp problem.

On top of the chest, that’s Aunt Frostie, plus (another) one of me on Lace.


Here’s a little house sculpture that was a gift from the artist, Lisa Tune. Can you see my name on it?


The chandelier was a gift from another friend whose wife hated it and just wanted it out of her house. Done!

The rose encaustic painting, I won in a drawing at the Pescadero Art and Fun Festival a couple of years ago. And, yes, of course I stuffed the box! The painting is by Susan Friedman, another local artist who is most famous for her horse art.

My horse lamp came from a school tag sale for $5 plus the shade and, of course, white paint.

    Thank you for the close-up pics. Love the padded bench/stool and table. It definitely looks like a refuge. I love that the pieces come from so many different places, but all found a home with you.

  8. Kara says:

    Love. Love…

  9. TinaFunez says:

    Love the little house and the flower painting! and the pictures are larger too. Can now see all the little details. The Decor is just beautiful!

  10. ClaudiaM says:

    Love that everything has a story behind it, makes it even more special. Thank you for showing us all the corners and details (xox). I’ll be second on the list after Amanda 🙂

  11. Rose says:

    Beautiful picture of Aunt Frostie! Lynne, I’m sure you have to stay stocked up on light bulbs for all the lamps. I’ve never been a fan of antique. I admire the way you restore the old furniture and bring it back to life. What’s the saying, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure? Or, something like that. I mean that in a good way!

  12. Larissa says:

    When I purchase a home, can I hire you as my decorator ? 🙂

    • Lynne says:

      Larissa, just find some excuse to get me inside your house and I’ll give you way more advice than you can stand for free.

  13. Ms. Jenny says:

    Absolutely love this!! Love everything about it. So gorgeous and I’m with Claudia, love the stories with everything. Thanks so much for sharing! x

  14. Toni says:

    So beautiful. There are worse thins than having a lamp problem. I, for one, think it is fabulous!

  15. Jodie B says:

    Goodness, with all of these pics you would think you could’ve posted just one of my beloved wardrobe! I’ve got one sitting in my house that I want to do something similar with! Need a pic to show Heli. I know it’s in the other house, but so what! Maybe tonight after you put on your monkey jammies and brush your teeth, you could dash in there and take me a quick pic? What’s that? You will? Well bless your heart! Aren’t you just a dear!

  16. Aunt Frostie!!!! I’ve been dying to see a pic of her, yay! She is totally beautiful, and I of course FLOVE her sassy locks!:) Did she have gorgeous green peepers like you, Auntie Lynne? It’s kinda hard to tell in the pic.:) <3

  17. Destiny says:

    I am so totally in love with your homes/style. I hope one day to have a home that reflects who I am/where I come from/what matters to me most, as your’s does you. Well done.

  18. She had kind of aqua green peepers. Wasn’t she adorable? I’ll post her wedding pic soon, too; I have it on my desk.

  19. Dev says:

    Fabulous Lynne! Love it All! We must be related, I too have a lamp situation! Oh and mirrors, milk glass, rose oil paintings, gesso frames, iron beds and vintage chenille spreads! Most of my home is furnished with flea markets deals and antique stuff! I Love the old chairs re-purposed with Miss B. and in the cottage! The new ones are great! Love overstock! Love your style! You inspire me! XxxX ~Devorah~

  20. Hoopty hoo, I can’t wait! She was totally adorable, she looks like a lady who must have been lots of fun to know.:) Have to say, I really wish gorgeous green peepers were contagious..I mean, couldn’t you all share with lil’ ol me?

  21. amandahawking says:

    Love it all… My fave photo is actually the one of Frosty! How gorgeous was she 🙂 you must miss her xxx

  22. Chanda says:

    Love this! Love looking inside people’s homes. You can learn so much about the residents. And as I’m touring, I’m someone who asks questions (probably annoyingly)–“Who are the people in this picture?” “What type of wood is this?” “Where did you get those armchairs?” So, I appreciate the background info lol. 🙂

  23. LaurieandDeeAnn says:

    Your decor is lovely, Lynne! I love the quilt – just beautiful! 🙂

  24. Dee Wilson via Facebook says:

    Thank you so much for sharing! How beautiful everything looks. So welcoming. Makes you want to have a cup of tea siting in one of those new chairs! Gorgeous. 🙂

  25. Mr. Ry says:

    I love the chairs out in the tiny house they look great for the space! I noticed you don’t have pictures of the fabulous claw-footed bath tub I made you get though… That’s my favorite part of all.
