House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

Catching Shadows...

Zigzag shadows...

One of the things that I love about my home is the light.
Yeah, yeah, I know.  I can hear the jokes, now.
"Go into the light."
"Let your little light shine."
"Baby, light my fire!"

I love the outdoors so if I must be inside, I need all the light I can get!  I follow it around the house like a puppy.  Here are some of my pitstops on the light brigade.

Our living room is so bright, I could grow a garden!

By 3:00, everything upstairs is a washed out honey color.

I finally put curtains in our bedroom when my Mister dubbed it Daytona Beach.

When I return from morning runs,  light is streaming through my bathroom window.  (Begging me to shower!)

Homework central gets the afternoon shadows...

My "sneaking off to read" corner!

So, there you have it.  I spend my free time chasing light and shadows.

  1. Beautiful pics! Light is such an unappreciated feature.
    Take care,

  2. That bedroom curtain picture is amazing, the light is gorgeous.

  3. I agree with Lori. Light is underrated. In my apartment there are few windows, but the kitchen has a large glass sliding door to a little balcony. We find ourselves drawn to the kitchen, and while sometimes it's for the food, most of the time it's because of the sun and the amazing view.

  4. I NEED light in my house, too! There's something about the natural light in my house at this time of the year that is particularly lovely- I wish I could put my finger on it and reproduce it.

    The light shining through your bedroom window is gorgeous. Beautiful pictures! ~ Yvonne (a new follower)

  5. Such gorgeous shots! I'm beyond jealous of all the light streaming through the windows in your home. I'm moving in... ;)
