Parade of Homes

It is interesting when I look back on the pictures I took.  Fireplaces, sinks, family rooms, children's rooms, art work, bath tubs.....all cozy areas.  I almost forgot to take outdoor pictures of the houses.  I purposely took those to share with you.  My own analysis is that I don't need a fancy exterior or tons of space.  It also shows that it is what is inside a house that makes it a home.  I will never live in a house as big as these.  It's okay if someone else does.  I also found out that steps are not kind to someone my age.  Oh my those were many levels.  I would need a map to find everything.  The homes were beautiful and staged to look that way.  My favorite was the Urban Farmhouse....the white one.  It used lots of reclaimed wood and older looking furnishings.  I might be able to live there.  Have fun on the tour.  ((((HUGS))))
Some side notes:
The messy boy's room was so funny.  Can you read the sign.
The counter top is unfinished granite.....I had never seen that before.
The carnival....the horses weren't functional.....a little weird.
We liked the way that curtain was on the rod.
Loved the cinderella bed and little castle.
The Weim is for had to be as tall as I was.  It was at the bottom of the steps, not much lighting there.
Wow, I am exhausted, hah.

Well someone loved Weims or had them in that house.
yeah I agree these houses are all beyond me too. I need more space here and we're adding it but only because we have such a tiny living room space. Stairs are tough I know we have enough of them here with the levels we have. One of my knees cries out on certain days !! Thanks for the tour. Nan

What beautiful houses. I agree with you - the space where you live inside is more important. But they're fun to look at. :)
I love those kitchens. I have Large Kitchen Envy. haha.

I just got the sweetest thank you card in the mail from you! I usually don't even hear back from the people who win giveaways, but I've definitely never gotten a thank you card before! Thank you so much for being so sweet! :]

I love looking at homes. Thanks for all the pics. You are definitely right though it's all the warm touches that make a house a home. Size doesn't matter:)

Neat pictures! It's fun to get to take a peek inside these houses.

When I used to live in California there was a tour of homes in an older part of the city I lived in each year. It was so neat to get to see how they were preserved and decorated. Very fun!
