The closing

Hello, everyone...

I just wanted to write and say that I won't be blogging here anymore. But I wanted to share some good news-- at the end of June, I was sold to new owners. My old owners moved on to start another life somewhere else. We had good times. That's for sure.

My life will continue as a house. I still have my wonderful views. But I won't be blogging anymore.

Before I go, I wanted to share this one last thing with you. It's another slideshow from the Apartment Therapy people. But this one is from the editors of THE KITCHEN.

Check me out:

Kitchen Spotlight: Stephanie & Bob's Primary Colors - The Kitchen

I thank you for reading as long as you did. I had a lot to say. Now it's time for a new beginning.

Love & best wishes,

2471 Silver Ridge

Selling myself from the inside out: Estate Sale This Weekend!

Well, it has been quite a while since last blogged. And a lot has happened. My owners tried everything to keep me, but had to sell me in the end. And I'm told that I'm now "in escrow"... and will soon have new owners - "If all goes well, fingers crossed, knock on wood," my current owners keep saying.

2009 is a big year for me.
Out with the old and in with the new!

Speaking of that... my furnishings are being sold this weekend. June 13th & 14th from 8-3 is the big Estate Sale. Here's the flier:

ESTATE SALE in SILVER LAKE: Sat 6/13 and Sun 6/14 from 8 AM–3 PM

The beautiful objects in this beautiful home are up for sale!

Estate Sale at 2471 Silver Ridge Avenue in the lovely Silver Lake neighborhood this weekend – Saturday and Sunday 8 AM to 3 PM.

The house made famous by starting its own blog (didn’t know houses could do that did you) and featured in an Apartment Therapy House Tour is having an everything-must-go sale and it wants you to be there. The house is full of great finds from the Rosebowl Flea Market – they can be your finds now! It’s a sale but it’s also a celebration of a wonderful chapter in a house’s life that is now making room (literally) for new owners and their new stories.

Check out the Apartment Therapy House Tour: here

Check out the Picasa Web album with some pictures of specific items: here

A very nice person wrote that for me. Thank you, nice person.

I do hope lots of people will come to the sale and buy things to help make room for the new owners. See you this weekend? Just think, these vintage Herman Miller counter stools could be yours!

Everywhere You Turn, There's a View... thanks to reflective surfaces

A benefit of the high gloss blue Ikea cabinets is that they brilliantly reflect my view... as shown in the above photo. Check out that palm tree! I love this picture. I love my kitchen. Everywhere you turn, there's a view!

Kitchen cabinets- Ikea (Not sure if they still sell the blue ones... I couldn't find them on their website)

40 people came through last Sunday. We had four separate private showings this week. Things are bubbling at this new and fabulous price.

What does $799,000 get you? An incredible house with million dollar views and $130,000 worth of upgrades for free. How's that? The current owners paid $799 and put $130 into my transformation. And it shows.

Turn the key, walk right in, put your feet up and you're home. It doesn't get much better than this.
