Cross Your Fingers....




UPDATE: WE GOT IT WE GOT IT WE GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your finger crossing is MIGHTY!!!!!
xoxoxox,
A

It's a Craftsman Bungalow.
Hardwood floors...
Huge rooms....
One of those rooms has three windows and would be my studio....

The back yard has a lemon tree
Rosebushes 
And an herb garden....

The front porch has a swing
and empty giant ceramic flower pots just begging for my attention....
The kitchen has a Viking Stove with two ovens, put in for the chef who renovated the house

It is in downtown San Jose.
There are coffee shops and neighbors,
Yoga studios a small bike ride away....
Somehow in a mere hour it has lodged itself in my heart
And I cannot stop thinking about the details

The small animal figurines above each doorway, humorous and vigilant...
The black and white checkered kitchen floor....
The enormous windows
with screens....

I'll know tomorrow morning if it's where I'll lay my head for some years to come....
Cross them tight, friends.

xoxoxoxo,
A

So glad for you Miss!

And we really did meet a couple years late - SJ huh? Downtownish is where BC and I lived for 5+ years before Seattle (Willow Glen to be exact, and ogmygosh, if you like Chinese, go to Taiwan, it's on Lincoln Ave and it's my all time favorite!!!). The house looks gorgeous, I can't wait to see how you turn it into your own!
