A Coastal Landmark With Style


We took a wonderful trip to the Oregon Coast this past weekend.

It was wonderful to be on the coast and get my “ocean fix”. I spent 50 years of my life on the California coast and I probably took it for granted.

Now that I live in Eastern Washington, I feel the need to see the ocean at least once a year..

This lighthouse, Yaquina Lighthouse, in Newport was one of the highlights of the weekend for me.

It was well worth the climb to this spectacular dwelling..

This is what it looked like after it was left in disrepair…..



It was rescued and preserved back to it’s original glory.

I have ALWAYS had a “thing” for old architecture. I have memories as a child driving in the car and gazing at old houses and wanting so badly to be able to walk through and explore them

So…home décor blogging really is a dream come true for me : )

Take a look at this gorgeous lighthouse. It is decorated with period pieces, but I have to say that this décor with it’s simplicity and beautiful lines would work just fine in today’s world.

Look at this gorgeous water pump faucet and kitchen cabinetry.


and this “to die for” stove…




the quaint and serene bedrooms….


check out this dress form! I was swooning.


a wonderful living space..


Did I mention the view?


and then we walked (or, in my son’s case, skipped) down the stairs and path to the beach below…


with our toes in the sand we were able to gaze back at this beautiful piece of history.


So glad you stopped by and I hope your week is going great.
