So I won the lottery this weekend. We went down to my sister, Melisa's house in Encinitas (San Diego) to "help" her with her big moving sale... and by help I mean to take anything she didn't sell. We were EXtremely helpful. This is the sister I've mentioned before who has a beautiful house decorated even more beautifully. I've always loved anything and everything she picks out... probably a combination of factors: she has a degree in Interior Design, she's artistic and just has REALLY great tastes, and she's my big sister... so she's inherently cool to me. So when she said they were selling their big house and "downsizing" to a super cute little house across the Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach (walking distance from the beach!!! Can you imagine?!), I definitely had my hopes. It pays to live close to GENEROUS, stylish siblings.
So she had already made us a deal: a couch and armoire for some babysitting.... not bad eh? We had scheduled a Uhaul to get those back home, which came in pretty handy as we bought a few more things from her before the moving sale, and then of course cleared her out post sale. I'm sure some pictures of my fun new decor might find their way to the blog in the near future. THANK YOU Mel and Mike!
