artist feature: lisa golightly

Emily Oster

I have seen Lisa Golightly's work before but it wasn't until I saw some of her most recent paintings that I was really drawn in. Based out of Portland, Oregon, Golightly is a painter who uses house paint and acrylic. With a background in photography, "her work revolves around memory and how snapshots shape, influence, change and even create memory" (Golightly).

You can see examples of her most recent work on her website - selection taken below. 

Or you can purchase prints from her Etsy store - Kiki and Polly

old house dreams

Emily Oster

If you dream of living in an old home than this site is for you. Old House Dreams catalogues old house real estate listing from all over the country. Its inventory is huge and with the option to filter by criteria such as state, architectural style, size etc. it is easy to find properties to lust over. Here are just a few that caught my eye. 

1840 Italianate - Canandaigua, New York

This historic cobblestone home is located in the town my Dad grew up in so I have an easy time picturing how amazing it could be. It looks to be last updated in the 1970s so it definitely needs so work. It features 5 bedrooms and 1 bath, 4 fireplaces, many of the original moldings and trim and sits on 2 acres. Originally listed for $149,900, this property sold for $139,900. 

1810 Federal - Machipongo, Virginia

This one is a true fixer upper but it has such great potential. I love the scale and massing of the exterior and the interior looks to have much of the original character and detailing. Priced at $450,000 this home has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath, is 2700 square feet and is located on 60 acres. 

1805 Federal - Martinsburg, West Virginia

If you love the idea of living in an old home but not the idea of a fixer upper than this home is for you. A "Certified Rehabilitation Project" this sandstone house is 3 bed and 3.5 baths, has updated modern systems, sits on 65+ acres with three ponds and has incredible views. Its listed for $699,999.

1800 - Oxford, North Carolina

Another move in ready home, this property has the most amazing approach. Just look at the aerial of the drive in! Amazing features of this home include 12ft ceilings, beautiful outbuildings, original hardwoods and 8 fireplaces. It is listed for $599,000.

new collections at biscuit home

Emily Oster

Biscuit Home, one of my favorite sources for patterned bedding, is just out with three new collections. The Austin in Pink, the Wimberley in Coral, and the Bloomsbury in Periwinkle. I have long admired the Austin in Blue and while, I am not a super pink girl, I like the girly pink contrasted in the more relaxed and cool splatter paint pattern.

The Wimberley doesn't photograph quite as easily as the Austin and I wish there were more zoomed in photos of the pattern. That being said, I really love the wildflower pattern in both the original color and now the new.

The final new addition, Bloomsbury in Periwinkle, is the third available colorway for this particular pattern. Bloomsbury is one of my favorite patterns so I was super excited to see it in such bright and pretty colors.
