House Spy Friday: Seattle Arboretum Craftsman
I have a soft spot for Craftsman cottages.. they were so very common in the northwest, but over time are slowly disappearing. Often they are smaller footprints than most modern families want, so if they are in good neighborhoods they get remolded or removed...

House Spy Friday: Lincoln Park Cottage
Today I'm feeling whimsical... time to look at some Seattle area cottages to see if I can find something artsy with a bit of color. I found a few great houses.. but this one caught my eye. It's about 1,000 square feet. So definitely a cozy cottage.. I like ...
