Take a tour of Jennifer Perkins’ parents’ pink Victorian home: ‘The Birthday Cake House.’
“The house was white and the carpet was soaked with cat urine when my parents decided to take a leap of faith and buy their very own never-ending DIY project.”
The restoration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Unity Temple here in Oak Park is nearly complete, just in time for what would have been his 150th birthday.
We had the rehearsal dinner for our wedding there, but I haven’t been inside in ages. I’m eager to see it again!
It may be that you like your IKEA furniture more because you put it together yourself.
Scientists sometimes have wonderfully bizarre carry-on items.
“My strategy was to pretend that everything I was doing was perfectly normal.”
Not super excited about clothes on the racks right now tbh.
In honor of the latest GOT teaser trailer that has been flooding my Facebook feed…
I’ve had some near-accordion-purchases lately, but I have yet to acquire one. We had one in the house when I was a kid, but I would be pretty much starting from scratch to learn it (and Brandon’s not so super excited about that prospect). I almost settled for a concertina for sale at an estate sale, but a woman drove in from an hour away just to buy it and I wasn’t about to swoop it out from under her while she browsed (she was still “thinking about it” because they wouldn’t come down on price on the first day of the sale).
Anyways. Happy long weekend!
