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?"

Shadow Dancing...

You might remember that I'm a bit of a nut about lighting
I once asked my friend "When do you get good lighting in your house?" She gave a polite answer but I saw the look in her eyes. The "Were you dropped on your head as a child?" look. 
When I busted into said friends house to play with her round dining table and her purdy china on a sunny afternoon, I got my answer. 
As I was shooting pictures of her tablescape, the light suddenly changed. Voila! There it was.  
She pretended to not be alarmed as I chased shadows around her home, trying desperately to capture the moment on film. 
This is why I am so grateful for my friends. They know that I am a whackadoodle and they love me anyway. 
Here are a few of the shots from my shadow dance party.

The stained glass made the light even more beautiful.

I saw a movie many years ago, "In The Gloaming" that was a beautiful movie, with a beautiful house, and stunning lighting. It was nirvana for a house stalker with a side of light obsession.

  1. You are a whacks doodle. Popping by to see what Kerry has been upto lately. Love that window seat. It is my favourite thing. Love, love your friend's houses.


  2. You totally crack me up. I'm so happy that you are nestled safely into a community of people who get you. Truly. :)

  3. Ummmm...I just started crying watching that movie preview so I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be watching the whole thing anytime soon! Thanks a lot! ;-)But I did think the house looked beautiful so maybe when I work up the emotional fortitude to handle it. LOL! You did some lovely shadow dancing and your friends house is gorgeous. Now I need to go back and look at the other posts about it!

    1. Brace's a tearjerker, especially if you are a mother!
      I had to watch it a second time so that I could adequately stalk the house!

  4. Stopping by from the Link It Up Thursday Party!
