It's The Sunday Favorites Party! :-)

Hi sweet Girlies..........and Happy Sunday!

I'm joining sweet Chari from for the Sunday Favorites Party.

Thanks, Chari for putting this party together.

Be sure to pop over to Chari's (you will LOVE her....she's a doll!) to see all of the other Sunday Favorites posts.

(This post was originally from 05.06.09).

Huggies and Lovies Girlies!



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. Good morning precious one! Thank you for this lovely tour of homes! This is my favorite thing to do out on walking excursions: LOOK AT HOMES! And we have some dillys here in the Twin Cities. I swear that the architects of way back had a "love Jones" for cottages and fairy tales, because SOOOOO many of our homes here are so darling and magical. We also have large mansions and it is a joy to drive to work everyday just to see the lovely gardens and homes. I so adore that first picture of that garden gate and that RHODODENDRON ARCH IS HUGEEEEEEEE!

    You have yourself an awesome Sunday sweet thang!

    Bisous, Anita

  2. Such lovely homes, I like that last one too. Great post, Chari is so lovely.
    Happy SUnday,

  3. What beautiful homes Spencer! I love to drive around and look at houses too...dreamy!
    Happy Sunday!

  4. Hi Spencer,
    I love looking at homes too. My husband and I used to take long walks in an old neighborhood in a small town near ours. They have one street with the most gorgeous old homes and I was always hoping someone would invite us in to take a peek inside.
    Thanks for sharing the beautiful home pictures.

  5. Spencer, What beautiful images!! I love your choices and your site.

  6. Oh, all of these are just gorgeous. I love the beautiful old architecture and the landscaping on some is just wonderful. A fantasy dream to live in one of these houses. Don't you just know the moldings inside are dreamy. Hugs, Marty

  7. Beautiful homes!!! I bet you like the last one because it looks English! I like it too,

  8. Thanks for the tour of the beautiful favorite is the "high on a hill" house, just gorgeous!

  9. I love to look at houses too! I'd take any one of them. And all of the landscaping looks beautiful as well.

  10. I love to do that too Spencer. I love to see onto people's homes at dusk too. Just as they are turning on their lamps and interior lights. Yikes! I hope that doesn't make me a creep or something.LOL
    There are so many beautiful old homes in a nearby town. Our town is rather ugly. No interesting homes at all. But then I live in a teeny farming town.
    These homes you have shared are so pretty. I think I could live happily in any one of them.

  11. Hi..Such lovely houses. I wonder the very same things you do..and one of my favorite things to do as well, just to look at them. They satisfy a certain asthetic in me, I guess. And, I am always inspired with things to do to my house, too!
    Oh, and by the way, I just love your music.
    Have a wonderful Sunday.

  12. Hi, Spence!

    We missed you on the Pink Saturday train yesterday. I hope all is well. Glad to see this post pop up and enjoyed seeing all these lovely homes. I like to stalk houses, too. I like it second to shopping for shiny objects.

    Sending you big hugs. Love you much...


    Sheila :-)

  13. Dearest Spencer, you are the darling....everyone loves Spencer! Thank you for the kind and gentle comments! And do I wish I had those pink Chanel shoes...I am gonna be on the look out for some like that at Macys!!!!

    Have a spectacular week dearest one!Anita

  14. Hi Spencer,
    I love looking at homes too. All of these homes are so sweet and welcoming. Wouldn't it be great if we could just go up to them and peek inside the windows without anyone inside caring if we did!


  15. Hi my Cupcake!! Hope you are doing well! Me and Maddy love drives to look at homes and landscaping, too!! What fun that would be to do with you!!

    Love all of these homes! That one with that arched tree is definitely different! Isn't that a magnolia?

    Big hugs and love to you dear one!
    Hope your week is fabulous! More tests for me!
    Waaaaaaaahhhhhhh!! I just wanna blog and craft!! OK I'm done!! It will be over soon!

    Lovies! ;o)

  16. What lovely homes! It is indeed fun to drive around the ritzy neighborhoods and look at the houses! Thank you for sharing these today.

  17. Believe it or not - I love to look at beautiful homes - see what they did to their house and their yard, nice homes there. sandie

  18. Gosh, Spencer, you and I like A LOT of the same things. The homes you've pictured are my dream homes!!

    Big TX Hugs,

  19. I also love viewing homes, especially older homes. The details always amaze me. I could spend hours and hours just driving around scenic home areas. Thanks for sharing these great photos.

  20. Sooo gorgeous...I would love to reside in any of them! cherry

  21. Hello sweet lady...

    Ohhh my...aren't these homes simply gorgeous? You know, I love to do the same drive around and take a peek at all the beautiful homes! Whenever we go some place new, if we have the time, we always drive around and do this! It's so much fun trying to imagine what they might look like inside! Hehe! Well my friend, your daughter certainly lives in a very beautiful neighborhood!

    I'm so glad that you joined in with Sunday Favorites this week, Darlin'...this was such a great post to revisit! I do apologize at being so late to get by for a visit though...just busy trying to get caught up after our weekend away! We had a blast at the car show...even though I'm sunburned...windburned...and pooped out! Hehe! But then, I bet you know exactly what I'm talking about if you did the car show thing! Have a great week, sweet friend! Oh yes, and thank you soooo very much for all the sweet mentions...gosh, you made me blush! Hehe!

    Love ya,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  22. Spencer, this was so much fun. I love looking at houses, and every one of these is gorgeous.

    My house has black shutters, too. ;-)


Sweet and dear little Chickies....thank you so much for your comments. I read each and every one. I always try to make a return visit........sometimes I fail miserably... but you're alllll soooo special to me!

Many, many hugs!
