Stop the Car ~ I need to take a picture


 "Stop the car, I need to take a photo of this house...my little dream house." I say.

My husband slows and I take a photo of this charming house, that I would love to be mine. 
It is so sweet and full of flower gardens.
My husband knows how much I love this property. It is not really on the way to our destination, but every once in awhile, he will take the out of the way route for me to see my house.



Look at that window up top. I do wonder. I would love a peek inside.

Do you have a dream house?

"My mother desires me to tell you that I am a very good housekeeper, which I have no reluctance in doing, because I really think it my peculiar excellence, and for this reason -  I always take care to provide such things as please my own appetite, which I consider as the chief merit in housekeeping."
The Wit and Wisdom of Jane Austen
Letters to Cassandra November 17 - 18, 1798

  2. Hi Carla, I would love to have a house like this. I can imagine reading by that upstairs window! My great aunt had a similar home, but with no upstairs. She grew pretty pastel irises and would provide a big vase full for Sunday church services.

  4. It's adorable. I wonder what made them add the chimney, and if they found the stone on the property...

  10. It looks charming! Mine would be a beach cottage...right on the ocean! I was working on photos today of an old rock garage that I had my hubby pull over for me to take pics! How funny! Sweet hugs, Diane

  13. What a charming house! I love the chimney :)
    I have dream houses! I already have my country house. Then there is the house in town. The house in the mountains. The house at the beach. I think that about covers all of them!

    The dream house is Pemberley. Of course.
