My delighful first (and, so far, only) follower has requested pictures of the house. Since Tikimama is focused on mid-century homes and her blog is so much fun, I'm happy to indulge her. Here are some shots of the house in its early days of our ownership. We have already replaced many of the lollypop-trimmed shrubs shown around around the foundation with shade lovers, including two Fatsia japonicas. I remember them from my California childhood (so that makes them mid-century, Tikimama!) I'm so glad they'll thrive further north. They made it through our winter cold with just a little damage and are coming back like gangbusters, thank goodness. And I clearly need to take some newer front yard pictures!
