The yard on one side of the house.
Perhaps one of the best Saturday mornings in a long while. Right before heading to the
shop, met up with good friend Esther, architect and estate sale MAVEN of Digs Dallas
to check out an estate/demolition sale 4808 Dexter in Turtle Creek - one of the most
beautiful homes I've ever seen - great mid century modern design, lush mature trees
that fits right into the landscaping and, definitely my favorite detail, TWO bridges that
lead you right up to the front door.
If you love estate sale shopping and feeling like you're travelling back in time, then
you gotta check out Digs Dallas. She finds bargains, has en eye for repurposing, and,
probably my fav thing is that she's so so knowledgable on art and Dallas architectural
history; It makes the somewhat invasive process of going through someone's home
and their precious keepsakes a little more poignant.
The room upstairs. This was day two of the sale and the house was stripped pretty clean.
Walking across the bridge over the creek to the front door. Bridge!
What's left of the kitchen.

Can you imagine having windows like this!?!
Old encyclopedia for sale.
