More Reminiscing " My Laguna Beach House"

 I shared before that I had recently moved to a big house in the country ( Fallbrook, CA. ), where I have my studio/shop and also the Marketplace every 3 months. I am anticipating taking you along the path with me of decorating it and since I have not really started focusing on it yet,I first wanted to share some photos of the beach cottage I lived in for the past 7 years. I was so blessed and priviliged to have had the opportunity to  live in Laguna Beach, It was truly beautiful in so many ways .If my photos are a bit blurry its because I had to take them from my facebook photo album 


  1. Oh Christie,
    Your beach cottage looked so sweet and charming. I know that your new house will in no time turn into your home with all your beautiful and personal touches. Can't wait to see pictures. Have a great day.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  2. Wow! It looks gorgeous! But it just leaves me wanting to see more, More, MORE!

  3. Christie, your beach cottage was simply heavenly! So warm, cozy & oh-so romantic :) I know in time your new home will be just as warm, cozy and romantic as this one was. I look forward to you showing us photos of your new home as you decorate and style each room :) That's always the fun part! Have a wonderful and creative day! Warmest always, Brenda

  4. Moving from a place you loved will only help you fall in love all over again as you begin your new journey in this house. We never know where life takes us, and for myself, I just try to enjoy the ride.
    Take care my friend, Sue

  5. Beautiful.
    I like your sprawling place now even more, though.
    Room to spread your wings.
    Thank you for a beautiful event and your friendship.
    Keeping my eyes peeled for frames for you.
    See you soon!

  11. Christie I know I have told you before, but I fell in love with your home when they featured you on HGTV's Country Home (I think that was the program) and I was smitten. I don't know if it was this home or not, but everything was soft and calming and just so beautiful. It really made an impact on my decorating style. You do everything with such beauty.
    It looks like the market was wonderful!!! I am so happy for you two. You put in so many long hours and it showed.
