Well here I am. I have been bitten by the blog bug and have decided to take the plunge. Any of you that know me know that I am scared of water over my head or in my nose or eyes so this is very scary indeed.
Do you like the name of the blog? It came to me in one of those BFOs ( Blinding Flash of the Obvious). I am obsessed with houses. I sell houses, I stage houses and occasionally I even get paid to do it. I love to peek at houses and I am the first to admit that I am nosy about how others decorate. As I look around my house I notice that even the artwork I am drawn to often has houses in it. If they have overflowing windowboxes all the better.
What kind of house do I live in? A very uninspired Colonial style home built in 1973. If you know much about architecture and building you probably know that the 70s will never be known as the Golden Age of anything. So the house is totally devoid of character and even has an avocado bath and a harvest gold half bath. I consider these my retro baths as they are in decent shape and after raising 4 boys I don't have the time or the money to redo them anytime soon.
What kind of house would be my dream house? That changes fairly often, but I have always loved Craftsmen Bungalows and capes from the 20s and 30s. Hopefully I will be able to figure out the posting picture thing as well as some other issues to make this blog fun for you and me and show you some of my favorite houses.
Now, I would like to digress, which I do a lot of. Melissa@ theinspiredroom.wordpress.com is having a party on November 2 to celebrate her 100 post. She has a really inspiring blog which I invite to hop over to and read. Tell her I invited you
to the party.
Hopefully I will have some pictures to show you next post or maybe a yummy recipe. That's right I love to cook almost as much as I love houses.
