Mommy’s House

Who can resist a look in someone else’s house? I used to live at street level on Mott Street, so trust me: no one. It was like living in a freaking store window…

My mom’s house is precious, as we say in my family. In fact, we say precious (adj.), preciousness (noun), or preciousing (verb).  As in: “Mommy is preciousing up her dining room.” or, the more general: “How precious.” (to be said in a mocking tone).

This is a good example of preciousness…


precious dolls and dishes above the precioused out window

Here’s the dining room…

And one of several wine racks….


ok, I bought the gourds so maybe I have a little precious in me
Living room…
still using the summer pillows – the winter pillows are much scratchier :(

The small but precious backyard…

the grill cover is Cutie’s

Plus her house comes with precious cats like this…


Or this….


Or these….

ok, so it’s the same two cats
Mommy’s house is my favorite place to be. It’s always clean and organized, and filled with good food and family and girly movies.

But now… we’re off to Daddy’s, which as we know from the preview is not so precious. To be honest, I don’t even fully know what I’m getting into. I’ll keep you updated.


  1. Those kitties are precious!

  2. Mommy’s house is so precious (in the voice of Gollum from Lord of the Rings). HAHA – yes I’m weird.

    • Ha, I actually forgot about that.

      I kept thinking of the movie “Precious based on the novel Push by Sapphire” (as they seem to say that complete spiel every time), which I did not see because I am not masochistic.

  3. Ha! Mum is preciousing the dining room- love it :-)
    Your mum’s house looks cosy, I also love that kind of atmosphere, especially when with the family. Keep us posted about your ‘not-so-precious’ dad’s house!
