A WOW Sky

fullsizeoutput_2326

The color of this sky was surreal! The deep blue against the terra cotta roof and the light colored chimney. The contrast caught my attention. When we’re downtown walking I keep trying to sneak in photos and keep up the pace. It’s not easy, but some things I just cannot pass by without taking a photo!

A short post for today – photos this week – Have a great day and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow!

Do you see what I see?

We were walking downtown and Fred spotted this cat. Did you notice it high atop the shrubs? I walked right past it, of course it was taller than me, so that’s probably why I didn’t see it. What a life this cat has! It seems to be a people watcher, ha ha…

The Early Cape One House Plan by Classic Colonial Homes!

This is the Early Cape One house plan by Classic Colonial Homes! This plan is 1,800 square feet with 400 square feet of optional for a living space or small apartment above the garage. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The exterior is classic cape style, good design is forever. This view shows the front of the house and a little portion of the garage behind it. I do love when the garage is located behind the house!

The main floor has a kitchen, dining, living space with a bedroom or study and a bathroom. This plan is perfect if you want to start out using the master bedroom (upstairs) and then when stairs get difficult move to the lower level with everything near by.

I wonder if a teeny powder room could fit underneath the stairs, which would allow you to close off the bathroom door near the breezeway, possibly fitting a stackable washer/dryer  in the downstairs bathroom somewhere? Just a thought…

The upstairs space includes the master bedroom/bathroom, and nice closet space. The washer/dryer is also located upstairs. There is a smaller guest room on this same floor and another bathroom. I would definitely consider the optional space above the garage! How convenient would that be? Art studio? Guest room?

I love the look with the garage – it’s so New England! Especially with that wonderful breezeway!

Geranium in the Spotlight

On way out the door the light on the geranium caught my eye. Truly a geranium in the spotlight! I grabbed my phone and snapped a photo and off we went. Later I saw that the background was black. Cool! It really makes the geranium stand out!

Whew, time flies… can you believe it’s already the second week in June? That’s crazy! I hope you find some time to enjoy your summer!

Catch you back here tomorrow!

Charleston Photo: Happy Sunday!

Charleston, SC architecture is stunning. Many of these homes are very old. I love the patina of the exteriors, the intricacies of the gates, the scale of things… so grand! Can you imagine what it was like several hundred years ago building homes so detailed and so extremely large? Impressive to say the least!

Happy Sunday!
