About

Me myself and IMy name is Leah. I’m a Philadelphia-based web & catalog home merchandiser, avid decorator, occasional freelance home problem-solver, longterm blogger and “mother” of two adorable dogs. After years of having a personal blog that’s focus had changed, I decided to let it go and create “House Obsession” as a space dedicated to my…well…obsession. More often than not I will probably rant about the trials and tribulations of the renovation of my house (one half of an old Colonial revival twin). I can’t promise there won’t be random thoughts on crafting, collecting, photography, the state of the world, recycling, and thrift store shopping. If you want to reach me, you can always contact me at houseobsession[at]gmail.com.

  1. i am obsessed about my home and my garden—we have an acre to landscape—it just keeps going. i have taken many pictures of what we have accomplished–if you’d like to see them—email me back and i’ll give you the site.

    thanks,
    miriam

  2. one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Your “before” kitchen cabinets would be perfect for my cabin. What did you do with them – are they still available?

  3. I salvaged what I could and have them in the basement for future projects. Mostly drawers. The rest was so disgusting that we got rid of them. It was hard to see JUST how gross they were in the pictures.

  4. Just wanted to Thank you for a GREAT blog. I am also enjoy different homes and love to decorate. We live about 20 minutes outside of Centralia in a small “city” callled Pottsville. If you ever come up this way again, you might want to hit Mahantongo Street and the Yuengling Brewery. This street has wonderful old homes and plenty of history, including John O’Hara’s homestead.

    1. Thanks Lori! I feel terrible b/c I don’t actually post very much on here anymore. Not nearly as much as I’d like to that is. And in terms of where you live, I’m very familiar with Centralia…and have driven through Pottsville. I’ll have to stop next time. Centralia is one of those places that I always find time to stop and wander when I go through. The history and story of that place are amazing. It’s a modern day ghost town… At any rate, thanks for the suggestions for my next jaunt up your way. I’ll definitely have to stop in and do a brewery tour!
