There's no place like here

AHHH!!! I love this girl so much it makes me cry!!





So a few months agoTara from etsy came and spent the day with Alice and I and filmed a little video on our house and our spaces and all our old junk. I'm so happy with how it came out! I think it's completely wonderful and since I got home from work I've watched it too many times to count! It's funny seeing how nervous I was and how I totally mis-pronounce a few things - "a beauty shob?" haha ohhh goshhh

I'll cut this short before I get all cheesy and sentimental - but please do check out our video, and take a peak at some of Tara's other videos too! She's a gem!

oh, and you should go here to see all the lovely things the folks at etsy picked out to 'get our look'!

Caitie Harri said...

Wow, I've always loved your home from all of your pictures but it looks even more amazing on film!

Fiona said...

This is almost certainly the cutest video I've ever seen.

Jessica said...

Oh my goodness...you two are just about the cutest, most wonderful, inspiring, unique, and adorable lil' ladies there are!! You totally aren't awkward either, even if you think so! Just complete sweetness! Both of your spaces are just so dreamy and inspiring and just completely you (as corny as that sounds!)...I love you to pieces m'dear, and uhhmmm, I've said this like ten times already but all I wanna do is pack up my things and go live with you two and never look back!!

tracy mitchell said...

that is sooooo cute! i was already in love with your decorating style just from the snippets in other pics on the blog. now it's cemented. can i move in?! :)

sasha said...

I'm quite thrilled that etsy chose your little beauty to feature on "theres no place like here"! I've often imagined what your home might look like and it was great to see it in all of its glory! I was also surprised to spot a little black and white panda bear in your stuffed animal collection. I also have a small stuffed animal collection and have a very similar if not identical panda bear! Thank for the amazing tour!

This practically seems like a documentary or something professional from TV :D

Francesca, your voice is so soft and feminine! Too cute ^_^

mAry mARy said...

You are the cutest !!!

zog_etiquette said...

It's so wonderful hearing your voice, not in a creepy way. It's like you've been animated all of the sudden. I also really loved seeing your room, everything is so pink & tan. What a cool roommate to have!!!

Eyeliah SS said...

Mars said...

Sacaton June said...

Emily Blackapple said...

You guys are such cuties! And I loved the excited, teensy-bit-nervous explanations and stories of the pretty and thoughtful nest you two have made.

goldendovedesign said...

i loved this video and it really inspired me. it's great that you two have such different styles but are learning to respect each others differences and work well together.
i'm sharing it on my blog- thanks!

Cary Walker said...

it was really lovely! my kids actually watched it twice... because they came in while i was watching it and asked to see the beginning:) one of my mom's items was picked by etsy as well.

nice job!

teresa said...

Great video! I love your style and your lovely house

olive said...

oh, gosh you two are just so cute. your house is perfect :)

my favorite part is when you talk about your rack of clothes! it's so funny because i have the same problem. i always tell myself that if i get something new then i have to get rid of something in return so i'm not accumulating, but its so hard to let go of things!

alice's sewing table is so great. it gets my decorating gears turning!

Jane said...

wow you have an amazing house!

kater said...

I loved this video! It's so sweet and nice, and I just love it! Your voice is so adorable!

That's the most adorable little house ever. :)

Jo Spittler said...

The film is heartwarming.

It is lovely to hear about your connection to your grandmother. I can so relate and have lots of her things around that I could never part with.

It is good to know you are out there!

Thank you!
Jo
