I used to hope someday I would have a home that I could enjoy the small touches I loved and read about for years.
It's really about imagination and creativity really. Scale is really not that important. I have been in enormous homes that lack character where as I have entered charming small and humble homes that have simply taken my breath away with simple placement of things and furniture, a certain piece of art work on the proper wall all make a gigantic impression.
If your wondering the home below is from one of my favorite books/movie. The Notebook.
I am drawn to homes with porches. The more the better. I have been blessed with one that is just right for me.
But here are a few photos of homes that I just had to show you.
This house is in Cape May. Whenever we are at out beach house I have to visit it a few times. I stare at it's four glorious porches imagining that I am sitting in them looking out at the sea.
Is this not incredible?
But realistically speaking, that house would involve so much work that I think eventually one would spend so much time maintaining that it must be exhausting.
I love the porch on this home and the farm feel. Isn't it breathtaking? I saw this in one of the blogs that I follow and had to post about it but forgot which blog.
Another thing I dreamed about having was white adirondack chairs placed in pairs somewhere on the grass. I had always seen them in magazines and hoped that I could place them someday in my home.
And the last thing was that I wanted to have plenty of places for wild birds to make their homes and nests.
We have three bird houses and each one is always inhabited by families. I think our birds are totally spoiled.
