This is so pretty. I'm not sure my tools are going to look this good.
This to me is more of a garden shed. So simple. So sweet. Just right.
One of the things I like most about living here is that every morning which ever direction I choose to walk, is chock full of the most beautiful homes you can imagine. Most of them were built at the turn-of-the-century. Some during the 1920's. But they are all gorgeous. My camera does not do these homes justice. Click on the pictures to see the details.
This is one of my favorites. A 1920's french chateau.
The detail work on this Victorian is amazing.
I think someone who loves design lives here. The red coral lamp in the window is my clue.
This spanish beauty was for sale last year for a million dollars.
This home is so beautiful in person. That corner sunroom is to die for.
1. I have to really like it.
2. It has to fit really well.
3. It has to be comfortable.
4. It has to fit my lifestyle.
Yep, you heard me right.
This morning i emptied it
and sorted through all my things.

In the continuing effort to simplify our lives, Mr GC and I went camping this weekend. One of our many goals in downsizing our lives, was to get back to the way we use to live, eons ago before we had children. We really loved to go camping on the weekends. While Mr. GC is an experienced hiker, I am not. I'm pretty much a wuss when it comes to the outdoors. But as I said, this was one of our goals, so this weekend we hopped in the car and went to lower Kings Canyon and hung out with some giant redwoods. It was pretty gorgeous there.
