My south Florida dream house!


We went to an artsy little village yesterday...walking along the blocks to a street festival...and I came upon this house, which I thought could possibly be my dream house! The two prickly pears caught my eye, and there is an unattached artist loft in the back! Of course, I would have to paint it with such cute colors and oh my goodness...it would be like living in paradise! Can you see the potential????? Check out the lovely winter skies down here right now, too! Happy Cactus Monday, and a big thank you to my DIL, Ginny for snapping this photo for me yesterday!!!

Oh I could too. I love little houses. They remind me of a doll house for big girls. It would be a fun project to do. I could see the roses now. : ) Happy Cactus Monday to you too.

Hi Julie
Thats a cute home and I can see it all painted up with cute shutters and the prickly plants in the front can stay! It is certainly just for you because of the plants...but I'd love it. I hope you are having warmer weather these days. It sure looks lovely...
have a great rest of the evening..

What a charming little adobe, packed of a holiday villa feel:)

I adore the clean white and the simple structure makes me feel fine and happy!

Now I know why you are so in love with it!

It's cute as a bug... snap it up and paint it pink.

I always like these houses, but I could never condense my stuff into one, I think...

I can totally see the potential in this house. I love cute little white houses especially if they are old and have character. Unfortunately my husband likes the opposite so no cute white houses for me :(

That's really a cute house. I wish I could see how it would have turned out after putting in all the changes you want to.
