I’ve been busy surviving this thing called life lately, and avoiding the Realtor browse, neglecting my ritual self flagellation in the interest of sanity. Not only will I never be able to buy a house, I am no longer 100% positive I’d want to buy one in New Orleans, even […]
Since I moved, I must admit I have been more focused on furnishing my new digs (it’s huge for us!) than looking at homes for sale, but I do still get around to it from time to time. It’s interesting to me that the more I browse, the more I […]
I’ve been browsing real estate sites for several days now and nothing sincerely piqued my interest until now. Tucked away in the Lower Garden District is this 130-year-old Victorian townhouse on Annunciation Street, an adorable little building squashed between two much larger structures. Respectfully renovated about 4 years ago, the […]
As housing prices rise in New Orleans, gorgeous classic homes float ever further from my financial reach. Finding a house that hasn’t had the culture renovated out of it is also becoming more and more difficult, but once in a while I’ll stumble upon a real beauty.
The more I look at houses for sale, the more I am disappointed by the culture-eradicating renovations I discover. Developers and contractors are tearing the heart and soul out of New Orleans’ architecture and it honestly makes me want to weep. While I appreciate some new design, there’s a lot […]

Would it be too much to ask my beloved to buy me a house for Valentine’s Day? It would undoubtedly fill me with an overwhelming sense of love, not to mention acting much like a potent aphrodisiac. “I promise baby, we’ll break in every room!” You think I jest?
All I want for Christmas is a house of my own. Do you think this year you’ll swing it Santa, help me get a loan? As much as I love to rhyme, I’m sure you’ll find it lame. This is a blog, after all, and not a reindeer game!
When I found today’s house, Judy Garland’s voice reverberated through my brain singing “A Cottage for Sale.” Though I’m not mourning a failed relationship per se, I am mourning a love unrequited because I know that this adorable little abode and I will never be together (cue a deep sigh).
Agree or don’t agree, but I believe there’s a certain level of badassery going on when you can hide a 3,000 sq. ft. home so completely that the entrance appears to be part of your neighbor’s property. I discovered this super cool, My Secret Garden-ish abode today during my usual online […]
