This Place

This place is so beautiful. The skylights take my breath away, not to mention that there’s a little chicken coop in the back. Have I mentioned how much Lulu Blue and I want to have a chicken? And two fireplaces. Two. The bathrooms are just okay, but here is a little tour of my favorite spots. I love the open, simple feel, the barn doors in the bedroom are so cool. And it’s in the woods, which is okay by me. The town of Felton is adorable, and definitely worth visiting if you are in the area. It’s been a while since I have been there, so I think it’ll be time soon. Until then, […]

This Place

The best thing about working in real estate is that I often get a chance to look at some amazing places that come up for sale in my area. The worst thing about working in real estate is that I often get a chance to look at some amazing places that come up for sale in my area. It’s a blessing and a curse. This incredible loft apartment came on the market recently, and I cannot stop drooling. I mean seriously. The exposed brick and concrete wall, the wood beamed ceiling. That huge window bringing in all the natural light, and I am not usually a fan of tiled floors, but these Saltillo tile floors are […]

Homeschool

As some of you know, Lulu Blue is a junior in high school, and after years of thinking about it, we finally decided to go for it and try homeschooling. We did this when she was really little and I really loved the results. Once she started school, she attended public school from kindergarten until last year, so I wasn’t worried about the negative social aspects of homeschooling that can impede a kid’s development. We started in October, and It is a lot of work. It requires a level of organization that doesn’t come naturally to us, and that means learning good habits (both of us!). Honestly, there really isn’t enough time in a day […]

Happy Halloween ( a day late)

We had a lovely Halloween. We finished sewing Lulu Blue’s costume just in time for her to head off to a party with her friends, and I spent the day working on my welding skills and resting. Can I just say, I love welding. It’s so cool. Even though I got myself a little welding sunburn on my arms, I can’t wait to keep learning. Lulu Blue dressed up as Melody from Sanrio, and her bestie went as Kuromi, they looked adorable. It was a pretty laid back Halloween this year, and we didn’t even have many tick-or-treaters, so we have a pretty large bowl of leftover candy. Not that either of us are complaining. […]

Style Inspiration This little Swedish blondie made quite a splash in the 60s and 70s, especially when she starred alongside Ringo Starr in Candy. She is definitely a style inspiration, embodying the best of the 60s style. Here are some looks I love. I hope you all have a lovely Monday! Love, Maca

Weekend Away

Last weekend I took a little trip up to Grass Valley/Nevada City to see Devandra Banhart in concert, and it was every bit as wonderful as I had hoped it would be. The concert was incredible, completely worth the drive. I scored a signed copy of the Cripple Crow record! I stayed in a little vintage airstream, which was absolutely lovely. The tiny space was a bit intimidating at first, but I quickly realized just how little space I actually need to be comfortable. I wasn’t alone, and I have a feeling my guest may argue with that. He was a little too tall for some of the cabinets. He did manage to avoid any […]
