My Photo


My name is Claudia and I am a sixth generation Arizonan but I have lived in many places. I started this blog while I was living in a little mud adobe house in the Sonoran Desert surrounded by roadrunners and views of the Catalina Mountains. I now live in Pasadena, California on the high second floor of a historic mansion. Our Pasadena home feels like a tree house. The windows frame flowering tree-tops and parrots squawk overhead. I hope you enjoy reading my blog. I write about the things I love which include anything whimsical, anything colorful, cooking, creating, secret gardening, scruffy dogs, and old stuff I can actually use and not just keep on a shelf.
