Thrift Score

Annie tells complete strangers that we have a Chinese house.

Especially anyone who looks Asian.

She sees the Craftsman details of our house as Asian. I can see what she means with the columns and the dark wood panelling. I thought she would be satisfied when we made her bedroom a "Chinese" room, but she said "No Mom, the whole house!" So I was thrilled(!) to find these lovely prints with these handsome frames. They have some wear, but they are so striking flanking the entrance to the dining room that any imperfections are hardly noticed. The textured paper they are printed on, almost like a silkscreen process, makes me think they are samples of vintage wallpaper that someone framed a long time ago.

Funny how your house looks right in keeping with the time it was built. You've done a magnificent job with the basic structure. Love the dog.
