Hi Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful, magical, reverant, fun-filled, delicious Christmas!!! I did, lol! We declared this to be a drama-free holiday, and it was just that - peaceful, delightful! Hubby out-did himself, and I hope to show you pics of some of my gifts from him soon.
I just found this great blog called Blondie 'N' SC and about the third post down, she showed pictures of her dream house, and asked her readers to tell about their dream house. In my minds eye, and in my heart, there's only one kind of house for me - a farmhouse. Here's what I wrote in my comment to her post:
"My dream house is a farmhouse (old or new made to look old - doesn't matter!) sitting on a short bank reinforced with local stones, covered with thrift in the spring and shadowed by large oak trees, surrounded by hydrangea, lilacs and foxgloves.
The house itself has long, deep porches with little nooks and crannies in which to hide on a hot sunny day, and sunny places to visit on cold days, and a swing to sit in on rainy days and listen to rain on the tin roof.
Inside there are wide plank floors, exposed wooden joists in the ceiling, whitewashed. A large, cozy living room, dining space between it and the somewhat open kitchen - with room for a large round table, lots of mis-matched chairs and a huge white hutch to hold dishes and treasures.
The kitchen is farmhouse style, with plenty of cabinet space and countertops, a huge pantry in which to store all my pots, pans, appliances, deep freeze, etc. Large appliances disguised with beadboard panels, a baking station, an island with room to roam, and a cozy 'keeping room' in a corner with just a low table and a couple of cozy chairs (and windows looking out on the herb garden and bird feeders).
The bedrooms are cozy and light. Bathrooms are nice, but simple and not over-done.
And in the attic, among the eaves, there's a large room with white painted floors and lots of windows, cabinets, countertops, tons of storage and every crafting and office item on my extensive wish list.
That's my dream house!"
So, you tell me - are you living in your dream house, planning and about to move in, or like me, is it still just a dream? I want to know what YOUR dream house is like! Blessings, Becky!
