Sometimes I fall in to this rut –where as vast as the internet is, nothing new seems to come around. It doesn’t last long but it happens.
But recently I was searching things like “driveway hedge lighting” and “hedge landscape lighting” in Google just to see what I would come across and I discovered casaCARA.
It was clear from the beginning that Cara is a renovation junkie like me and so I kept reading. I didn’t get very far and I settled on Cara’s post about the Rockaway Bungalow. The story of M.’s Rockaway Beach New York bungalow combines some of my favorite things; stories of family and the salvage of an old house. I think Cara has some photos of her visit to M.’s bungalow to be posted soon. I’m looking forward to seeing the progress, I have a special place in my heart for the restoration of the truly dilipadated.
In progress, looks like some new windows are in and the new front door is in.
A new coating of stucco going on the side,
As it turns out Cara is not new to design or renovation, she is a professional writer and editor contributing to Coastal Living, Hamptons Cottages & Gardens, NY Times and Metropolitan Home. And Cara collects old houses…I think I like Cara.
And Cara wants to rent her East Hampton beach cottage for the month of August this summer.
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
