A Little Old Town Tour For You! :-)

Is this the cutest darn garden gate? It even has a door plate? Wow!

These homes are in my daughter's neck of the woods here in the Northwest. It's not the architecture of the South or the East Coast, but soooo pretty, I think!

You can click on any of the photos for a bigger shot! know you want to! ;-)

This home belongs to that lovely gate...............dreaming of that wall and landscaping........ :-)

I'm in love with black shutters!

Mmmmmmmmm......aren't those the prettiest windows???

This old gal needs some TLC, but my daughter and I both just love this home!

This home is enormous!!!! And, many of these homes have a view of Puget Sound........YUM!

High on a hill with a beautiful view.......

I always think it would be fun to live in a place like this! :-)

They just don't do windows like this one any more, do they??

Just look at all the detail!

A more modest home, but still.........way bigger than Bellamere Cottage!!! :-)

Something is just WRONG about that apartment building.....


Wooops.........didn't seem to get the close-up shot even near the "full" shot.....sorry! It's sooo big and part of it is cut off in the snap too! YIKES! Hmmmm.......I'm thinking I'd have a really big sewing room in this one!

Doesn't this just make you smile? It was soooo cute!


Cobblestone and two different kinds of pretty, but they're pretty darn bumpy!

Gosh, I wonder how long ago this was planted! HUGE!!!

So crisp and clean......I loved the little trees on the porch and the black shutters........little Bellamere Cottage has black shutters too! :-)

This is my very favorite. It looks so dear, doesn't it? This little gal has it alllll! Well, except black shutters!

My daughter and I both love to drive around looking at homes.........I always wish I could go inside. What kinds of treasures to they have? How is it decorated? YEP....that's why I LOVE blogging..........I get to peek inside so many of your homes. It's so much fun to see all the darling little ideas you gals come up with. It's like a dream come true......without having to knock on doors and ask to peek!

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday.

Blessings and hugs,


  1. You have a great eye for photos, Spencer. I am immensely enjoying these homes.

  5. I love to take walks in neighborhoods where I can "spy" and dream about what their interiors look like! These are such pretty homes that you featured in this post. Wish I could've spied on them with you! Sue

  6. Spencer... I always enjoy the photos of the homes in your area... such diverse architecture! and lush gardens... how I envy those gardens!

    Did you know that Candy @ Rock Candy was looking for you? Drop by, she found something you'd want.. it has to do with hearts and rocks...

  8. oh i love to look at homes too, this was just delightful! you are surronded by so much beauty! the gate and arch are my favs~

  9. HI There fellow PNWester! I love it here in the Spring so much, the homes just sing with beauty, don't they? Wow, loved your tour, where do you live? It looks so much like the homes in my area, but all over the sound they look like that! I was thinking, I need a trip to Port Townsound soon, oh and Victoria too! I love this area when the rain isn't making everything gloomy! I was born in Seattle, but spent much of my growing up in Northern CA, it is wonderful to be raising my boys here! Such beauty!
    Take care and have a wonderful Mothers Day, and praise the Lord your daughter is doing so great!!!!!
