We Bought a House!
Alright, so the BIG news I’ve been hinting at! We bought a house!
After over a year of searching, being outbid twice, we finally got one! It’s not the amazing mid-century modern or crazy 50s ranch I had hoped for, as it is relatively modest on the outside, but it was built in 1954 and the interior has just about everything I wanted, and is original throughout most of the house! Thank goodness! I can’t tell you how many houses we saw that had awful redone kitchens and bathrooms that made me want to cry! The struggle to find a home that checked all of my boxes was a so real, and one I’m sure I could write up an entire post on it if there was interest.
We aren’t moving too far, just a hop, skip and a jump into Anaheim. I’m sad to leave Orange, as I can’t express how much I adore this little town, but we are literally moving five miles away, so it’s not a super big deal!
I kind of freaked out when I saw this 60s air conditioner! Which I recently spied in the background in my favorite movie, That Thing You Do! in Patterson’s Appliances. Plus, it still works!
And what I love most about this home is that the master bedroom has what is basically a dressing room!
There is this gorgeous built in vanity, with closet space opposite, and I fully intend on filling the area with all of my accessories!
So as mentioned before, this big news has kept me from making new parasols because I’ve been busy packing! The best part of the timing of this house is that the lease for our apartment is up at the end of the month, so we don’t have to deal with a pesky lease break or an extra month of more expensive month-to-month rent! What does all of this mean for the blog in the meantime? Well, a little less blogging. I have a few posts lined up (including the final installment of my charm bracelet collection) and a few events happening that I hope to snap pictures of, so hopefully I can get those written up and shared with you. It also means I hope to write a bit about the process of making this house our home.
I have some other big news too, that, once again, if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll already know about! But look for a post on it soon!

Congratulations! The scalloped details in the kitchen are adorable. I have the same trim in my kitchen and I literally bought the house because of it. Best wishes for many happy years in your home.

Congrats on your new home! So rare to find so many Mid-Mod features intact and in such great condition! You’re gonna have a lotta fun with this project!
Congratulations! That is so great you were able to find a house with the original details still intact! It always makes me cry to see how many homes have been “updated” 🙁 I love the tile details in that bathroom too- so cute.
