    Bernie’s house seemed old and outdated.. Especially the master bedroom. Also, I’m curious as to why there was some exercise equipment in the bathroom..? On the other hand Diane Keaton’s house was amazing. She really has a great sense of style.

    I love your blog and have been enjoying it for several weeks now. Its great.

    What I don’t like is when I click on my favorites link to come here and I get directed to a full screen ad slapping me in the face. I don’t mind the ads on the side. On the top. At the bottom. But getting it thrown in my face like that makes me do a slow burn. I know if I don’t like it, I don’t need to come here and I’m cool with that, but if you get a chance to give feedback on ads (this particular one was Home Depot) I hope you mention this. Well, if others mention it too, of course.

    Good luck in the future.

      Crusty Crone–
      Did that happen this morning? It was happening last night and I removed the code because I didn’t like that. I thought I stopped it. I agree–very annoying. I’ll have to talk to my ad network to see what’s going on. -Julia

    When I was much younger, Diane Keaton was my fashion role model. I still love her and I love her home. But I couldn’t cook with all those cacti on the counter. Odd choice. Not appetizing at all.

    and the Madoff place? Completely devoid of any thing interesting, any real style. And seriously, there’s an exposed trash can in the kitchen? Just a big, plastic trash can sitting next to the island like in any suburban home? All that money and space and they couldn’t have built in a space for the trash? Jeez, even I have a built in a drawer for the trash and my kitchen isn’t half that size.

    And even if that’s how it is, why leave it in the picture?

    I love the looks of the Party of five house. I wish they had shown pictures of the inside.

    Diane’s Keaton’s house would be great as a vacation home, but not as a regular home.
