I Know I Need to Blog, When My Mom Calls to Check on Me.

I'm kind of tired of being on the computer; having to sit most of the day is not as fun as it sounds. I have ventured out of the house a couple of times; we looked at eight houses over the weekend. All of them way over our budget, and all but one, outside of Asheville. The city has become tourist dependent, but is loosing it's workforce, because the average person can't afford to live here.
I'm pretty excited, as I will soon have a job. My friend Sophie is putting a kitchen in her coffee shop, and I will be her baker. I've been having a great time on Pinterest, collecting recipes to try.
Over the weekend we went to the flea market, and Megan scored some great deals. She bought 3 globes, and industrial table, and a vintage lamp.
I liked this old bus turned into a bar, and while not my taste, this old lighting fixture was interesting and oh so '70's.

Autumn is fast approaching, and Oliver has taken on the responsibility of cleaning the leaves out of the fish pond, before he feeds the fish. The fish get so excited when they see him and swim over to the corner where he stands.

I have a new favorite instagram dedicated to floors in Paris, called, Parisian Floors.

And lastly, some shots from one of the houses we looked at. It was 30 minutes from Asheville, high on a mountain. The driveway was really, really, REALLY, steep, but the house was an amazing timber frame home. (It was also $800 over budget.)

Fantastic home. Would so love to live in it....if it came with a maid :-) Hope soon something will come along that is as nice as the two gems you have made into such warm inviting spaces.

So happy you will be baking ....the world needs more good bakers. Some of the stuff in our bakery(s) up here taste like mass produced tasteless cardboard. Hate wasting calories on cardboard.

terrific job opportunity - will be great for your budget and your emotional well being
yikes that is a fabulous house but 800$ is a LOT of money
and friends of mine have a similar house - keeping the cobwebs down is a major effort (trying to think of reasons a person wouldn't want that terrific place)
super duper post
