This past weekend we attended the annual Bungalow Heaven home tour in Pasadena. This is a wonderful neighborhood whose Craftsman style houses were built in the early 1900s. Each year they offer a home tour of about eight houses. It starts in McDonald park where you pick up your tickets and catalog which includes a map, plus extensive information about each house. All the homes are within walking distance of the centralized park, and the oak lined streets make it a pleasure to walk the neighborhood.
Not all of the homes pictured here were on the tour this year, but I thought they were so charming that I included pictures of them as well. You can pretty much tell which ones were on the tour by the people entering through the front.
My favorite home on the tour. Too bad you can't see the inside, but we weren't allowed to take pictures inside. Most interiors have been renovated to their original Craftsman style.
Houses in sunny locations.
There were some shady spots too.
Okay, maybe you are ready to move to Bungalow Heaven. If so, here is one that has been restored that is for sale in the neighborhood. The asking price has been reduced to $699,900.00. See here.
As a fabric collage artist, I enjoy working with vintage fabrics and mixed media elements to create art quilt collage pieces. Old fabrics, lace, buttons, sewing notions, ephemera and photographs are my favorite mediums to use.

I chose to name my creations Threads In Time by Pallas, not only to reflect the physical threads of the old textiles, but also to reflect the threads in time each piece travels in an imaginary journey. I added my name, Pallas, to personalize each piece that I create.
I live in Kentucky during the Summer and Fall and the rest of the year in California.
