Futuro HousesWe’re a little late sharing our most popular posts of 2013 – but January isn’t over yet! 🙂  Be sure to check them out if you happened to miss them!

1. The top post was an oldie! – “Don’t replace your windows – it’s not green or saving green!” Still good information if you’re debating fixing or replacing the windows in your old home.

2. The second post appeals to the decorators or crafty types: Online Vintage Fabric Stores: for interior decoration and crafting fun! – these are some of our favorite stops for fabric around the net.

4. Mid-Century Style on a Budget – many of us are watching our pennies, how to decorate with mid-century flair on a budget.

5. Futuro Houses – are fabulous! Inspired by a picture of one falling apart in the forest that we posted on Facebook. We felt the need to find out more about these fabulous structures and see how many survive today.
