Busy as a Bee

Posted by Picasa

Actually this is not a bee. It is a small nectar-eating wasp, caught feasting on an antique rose at My Ranchburger. That potted rose bush now blooms at a young friend's first home.

My Ranchburger has sold. The closing was this morning. Having cleaned out decades of memorabilia in just a short period of time (just under two months!) we are a one-house family again. For several years, we have had two homes in the same city: a main home (My Ranchburger) and a weekend getaway (The Bunny Bungalow.) Sounds strange, I know, but think of the short drives and the convenience.

We have great friends who have given a home to the Ranchburger's furniture and art, or have found others to take some of our things...the big recycle event!

So, you will find us fulltime at The Bunny Bungalow. Come back to visit this blog, for I shall continue to post about modern and contemporary design.

Putting All Our Eggs in One Basket

Posted by Picasa

Our Ranchburger is "Sale Pending." So it seems that we will be downsizing...from two homes in the same city, to one...a tiny 1920's bungalow.

I shall continue to write about modern design and the minimalist life here at this blog. It's just that I'll not have My Ranchburger - well it will be my virtual ranchburger. We will be taking our Le Corbusier furniture with us to the garage/studio that we are building out back of the bungalow. What a shock that will be for visitors, walking into an Arts & Crafts style building then finding oneself in a French modern space. I love shocks!

May Day

Hibiscus at My Ranchburger

May will be our last month at My Ranchburger, so we take our memories with us, leaving only their footprints.
