hello erin »

a brief history lesson. . .

When Mike and I bought our new house we didnt quite realize how much “old spanish charm” it held. .  Saturday night we attended a cocktail party/book signing for the historical homes society of Palos Verdes (we’re officially members– totally cool kids now). It’s this amazing group of people brought together by their fabulous, charming, old homes (pre 1932). This group between them has this amazing set of old Spanish homes that they’ve worked hard to restore to their original glory. It gave us a completely new perspective on our new home, and got us insanely excited to get working.Our house was “special home #1” in the PV project and was built in 1926. Seriously, 1926– and yes, we’re totally throwing it a 100yr old birthday party in a few years.  We found these pictures of our house online and can’t wait to get them printed and hung somewhere (which we learned is apparently a challenge with our walls being lathe and plaster. . . i guess once something is hung is going to stay there–forever. I’m going to have to choose where the wedding picture shrine will be hung veeeery carefully).  How awesome are these old pictures. It’s crazy how little has changed.

And look how lonely our house looks!
