  1. Love that house. Wouldn’t mind living in it, though I’d probably have to live there alone. My wife hates the cold. Maybe I could just send her back here during the winter months! 😀

    • I’m with your wife. 8 inches of snow today and the wind is howling! That house is a beauty- with nooks and crannies and a sitting area outside on the 2nd floor!

  2. The three images unfolded like a story, which is why I had to stop and leave a comment (as opposed to a like or nada) – it really is a masterful trio (and I don’t say that lightly) – the openness of the first – with the winter – and then zooming in to see the sparrow – with detail and winter in a different way- and then that gorgeous house – with snow on the vines. Is that a tudor style home?

    • Thanks so much for taking it all in and I am glad that is what came across. Yes the house is a Tudor style- my neighborhood is filled with them-and we live in one too!

      • oh how awesome that you live in one as well – they are my favorite – but I only decided that recently. ha…
        and we have a neighborhood in the city that has tons of them – super cheap cos the area “used” to be posh….
        and sometimes I wonder if we could buy one on the cheap and have that brick beauty moved to our property. but only half thinking about it.
        but I love those homes…

      • They do have a lot of character- lots of woodowrk around the window frames, inlaid floors, fireplace. My bathroom is original and lilac and green tiles- not for everyone!

      • wow – now that must be something beautiful – and you are right – not everyone’s cup of tea.
        but good thing you left them in.
        in denver, I foolishly tore out all of these avacado tile from the kitchen – to put in a champagne colored tile. did it myself – ha! but the point is that later – the former homeowner told us they were expensive imports and I regretted it. or at least regretted not taking them off in a way they could be reused by someone – but we live and learn

      • well while growing up- I went with my mother to home improvement classes – learned how to screen a window from scratch – and I did the entire kitchen floor- counter – backboards.
        Had I known about the potential of a woman doing work like that – with shows like rehab addict – well i might have done it more full -time. but I became a parent and that took all my time – and to be honest, I don’t mind art tile projects – like mosaics – but would not enjoy doing that work full-time. but glad to know how and starting out we had orange counters – with that avacado tile – so we needed to help it ASAP

      • wow- orange and avocado no that is some combination!! Tile work is very hard on the body- mosaics are wonderful, my cousin makes them and has become quite good. Real works of art

      • the first piece I ever sold was a cube that i covered in mosaic tiles – I called it the paths of life – and used all kinds of leftover tiles – so each side was unique.
        it was made for a garden – and enjoyed making it – but was easy to say goodbye
