Here’s a list of what’s piquing our interest this week:
Penelope Green profiled Julie Carlson’s Wellfleet house in last week’s Thursday NY Times: A Childhood Home, and Poets’ Muse. We’re curious: do you have a great childhood house story? We’d love to hear it in the comments section below. (Above photo of Julie’s dining room courtesy of house guest Megan Wilson of Ancient Industries.)
