Open House Sunday IV

Four Square in Seattle
(built 1908)
living room
I love the colors used on the outside and inside of this house.
Most of the details of this home had to be created by the owners 
as it had been stripped of it's character in the 60's.
kitchen, dining room, living room
entry
stairs

That stove! Love the island too and the light fixtures.
laundry complete with huge vintage turquoise sink
bath
mouse in the house


Happy Mother's Day!

My Mom and I celebrated early on Friday and it involved this
great Mediterranean food
and
Flamenco dancers

We went to Zorba's for dinner (Mom's choice) and at 8 the floor show started.
Flamenco dancers!
Mom loved it!

Hope you all have a great day!

OMG that is such a Nita house!! Don't you think? I loved it, I loved the kitchen and the big laundry sink the most. They did a great job on it.
Your mothers day looked fun and a bit wild, mine will be more tame (I think)!

That house is amazing. I too love the colors they used. We just put paint sample up in the kitchen about the same color so what a surprise to see it in that kitchen. The mouse house detail is so cute!!
