Hello there- Last weekend a car full of friends trundled up to Pasadena for a morning strolling through a craftsman cottage neighborhood with our opinionated, but likable docent Bob. Here’s a few of the century old homes we explored…
Most of the cottages were the low slung, wood clad craftsman homes, but I loved the little Norman style shuttered cottage and the tiled Spanish house as well. And the last photo is from our tour guide Bob’s living room with the fireplace surround carved with the image of the Santa Barbara Mission. Exquisite.
Then we traipsed across Pasadena for a pretty lunch at Europane and a little shopping at a craft fair. Thanks adventure buddies for the big day out!! Where we headed next?

I’m a lover of historic homes, and those craftsman cottages are just too cute. What fun!!
Love older homes too Suzanne. Here in Orange County, most homes are fairly new– Ours was built in 1953 and is in the oldest part of town. You live where there are a truly beautiful old homes. Happy Thanksgiving!!
Hi Cate– you probably know this area– where we live in Orange County– not too many pretty old homes– so we trundle up to Pasadena to see them! I bet there’s some beautiful old neighborhoods where you live…
Yes. A variety of styles. Where we were in NJ mostly Victorian or pre V. Just beautiful.
These must have been fun to see—very quaint and each one is unique from the other. Sounds like a fun way to have an adventure day!
It was fun Marcia– for people (like me) who watch hours of House Hunters on tv!
I love the first photo, Rhonda. It looks very cozy. 🙂
Hi Lilly– you must be home!! Fun to hear from you. Your France pictures were so beautiful!
Ahh, looks so fun. You will have to check out the Frank Lloyd Wright homes when you visit Chicago next. – Kat
I’d love that– we have a daughter in Wisconsin and get to Chicago now and then!
It looks like a lovely day-out! That salad looks very tasty! 🙂 Beautiful photos too!
HI Sophie!! yep, it’s always good to be out with friends…
