House of Grebe.

I love playing with new ideas, making things I see and like as cheaply as possible, and reusing anything I can.  I've tried to make our homes cozy and inviting, and places that my children will make many memories in.

Our previous home, or '1000 square feet of heaven' as I liked to call it, was constantly evolving, and changing.  But we loved it so.

  3. Oh WOW! I seriously love your house! How inspiring...btw, I think I voted for Rosie's room, wasn't it on Ohdeedoh? Crystal on Little Bit Funky featured it for a giveaway (it was my favorite either way!)?

  4. Your use of color is absolutely AMAZING!!!! If people are shy of using color they should take a visit to your house. Absolutely beautiful home. My fave is Rosie's room. I wish I could make my Abby a room like that. That turquoise chandelier is incredible.

  5. I need to dig a basement for the sole purpose of having those stairs. Not fair. Stupid basement-less California, I hate you and your stupid earthquakes and real housewives.

  9. I taught with Jill at Buder Elementary for one whole year! I noticed Sam tagged in a picture you took. I never comment anywhere. I just had to say I will look at pics of your house everyday to get inspiration. I've lived in my house for nine years and you would just die. There really is no style. You are so very creative and I will strive to imitate just one thing!
