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?"

A Cottage Walk

I shared with you my "Run Route Special" here and here. No restraining orders followed so I am at it, again. 
This time, I am sharing some of my favorite cottages in my 'hood. One of the things that I love about my neighborhood is that each house has it's own personality- no two houses are the same. 
Come along and take a "Cottage Walk" through my 'hood.








Which is your favorite?

  2. I love all the cottages in your hood. We all missed you at the Southern Bloggers Conference. Hope to see you at the next Haven. I don't comment a lot, but rest assured that I'm always lurking.

    1. #4 has an amazing flower garden!
      Thank you!

  5. Ooooh, I love them all, too....but I'm going with #3 because it looks like it could have a thatched roof. I know it doesn't, but it would fit! (I almost said #1, though, because I'm a sucker for a turret)--Lisa

    1. I have always been intrigued by that roof! I don't know what the materials are but I love the look!
      Thanks for weighing in!

    1. BRING IT ON! There is never a dull moment around here and you could join us in the mom office (THE MOFFICE)!

  8. #2 would definitely make me feel like I live in the fairy tale I have always wanted to live within. Until I walked in and saw my kids' mess everywhere. That would destroy it. But from the outside, mmmm. Love this one.

    1. You would be one block from me- we would have a lot of "tonic" fun!

  9. Number 3, definitely number 3. It's so Hansel and Gretel. Though at this time of the month, the only witch living in it will be me.

  10. I love the last one! Let me just say, there isn't a house near me anywhere that looks similar to those. It is so fun to look....now could you just knock on a door and ask to take pics inside. :)

    1. Really? What part of the country do you live in? Southern mansion? Spanish ranch? California modern?

  15. Numbers 1 and 3 make me all dreamy. Why on earth do people live in neighborhoods where every house looks the same when they could live in something all their own? WHY? Weirdos.

    1. Indeed! I think it is whatever speaks to you. Older homes just feel like home to me. Maybe it's whatever you grow up with?
      Thanks, funny one.
