I have seen the photos of the Wilson house before, but never bothered to find out more about it until last month (shame on me). I was searching for mid-century modern related places to visit in the Austin, Texas area and found out the Wilson house was on our way in Temple, Texas.

We took a short vacation in Austin, Texas while back. Last time we were in Austin, we stayed at a cheap ol’motel (we were there for a week, so couldn’t afford anything but). We stayed at a hotel we always wanted to stay at this time: Hotel San Jose.
Hotel San Jose is located in the heart [...]
Updating the front door of our 1955 mid-century modern home is on the top of our “must do (?)” list. We have been eyeing either a doorlite kit or door from Crestview Doors for years. We had an opportunity to visit the warehouse in Austin, Texas to see their products in person. We were greeted [...]

I recently received an email from Amanda who lives in Pasadena, CA with her husband and two dogs. She [...]
We are in desperate need of an extra seating for our family room. Every night, three humans and five dogs fight over a space on our only sofa. Usually, only two humans and three dogs win the space. Because we share the seating space with our dogs (yes, they do have dog beds on the [...]
Santa was listening. A day after Christmas, we finally got an offer on our house (on the market since August). The buyer offered full asking price and asked us to pay $1,520 for a home warranty and repairs (if any). That’s it – too good to be true, right? We accepted the offer right away. [...]
