In a Lavender House

As I promised:

 The front porch where I would devour books and cookies and drink cups and cups of tea. There's even a porch swing!


The south-facing side porch where I would sit on winter mornings, listening to the birds, and saying hello to the neighbors walking by with their dogs. In summer, I would sit here in the evenings because the front porch faces west and this side of the house would be much cooler then.  Iced tea would be in order...blueberry iced-tea, I think...

More of the side porch, the beautiful white chimney, and the greenhouse window over what I imagine would be my kitchen sink.  The barely visible low roof to the far right is a lavender single-car garage, built extra long for storage, or maybe studio space.  Sometimes in these neighborhoods, garages are a luxury because so many of the lots have been split to add another residence, and the garages have disappeared or been incorporated into the 2nd building (as you can tell by all the vehicles that are parked along the streets.)  Not so for my little lavender house; its garage appears to be original to the house.  I've thought of everything...

I cannot stop thinking about this darling house.  I do believe my blue eyes have gone more than a bit green.

Have a lovely Sunday!
xo, D.

What great photos. Around here where I live, there are actually rules about what color you can paint your house. You have to consult the association for the permitted colors!

It's a perfect house. I love the lines of the chimmney. There are no lavender houses here, for sure.

Yay for lavender houses! In New Orleans, they are common. Every shade. Mine will be too-in a week!
