Homes


I couldn't resist taking a photo or two of this restored villa as I walked past the other day.
I love to imagine the stories and history, laughter and secrets it contains from the present and times past.

I thought I would share some photos of other homes that I have enjoyed taking snaps of on our travels to the other side of the world.
This house is on the street that Melissa walks by most days from her home in Norway.

This one hides in a little village in Hampshire, England.

By a loch in Scotland. Perhaps you pass this one from time to time Caireen ? I have a feeling it is near Loch Lomond.

Found this notice by the thatched cottage above, what a lot of stories this home could tell !

Love the wisteria in your first photo, I've always wanted to grow one on my house but they just won't play!

Last pic looks a vaguely familiar, is it in herefordshire?

I loved this post. Homes are so very special...no matter where one is.

I just love looking at other people's homes, thanks for the international pictures, you are lucky to have seen some great homes all around the world!

If I'm right in thinking that house is on Tasman Street, I think it's the one my aunt Rachel owned (though as typical with her, not for long, she too loves houses and can never settle with just one!). I have fond memories of Harriet's clown themed birthday party in the back garden.....

Congratulations to Alexander!

Sally, I really enjoy all your beautiful photos, especially the flowers :-D
