I have something special to show you today.
A long, long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away . . ha ha) I tore
this picture out of a furniture store advertising catalog.
I thought this was just about the most dreamy house I
had ever seen ~ it looks like something from a storybook.
I haven't kept very many of the pictures that I had torn out of
magazines over the years, but I never threw this one away.
So recently I was perusing the HOUZZ site and just happened
to come across this house. I immediately recognized it
as the house I had torn out of that catalog so long ago.
I was thrilled to see more photos of this house that is
appropriately named Happy Hollow.
I love just about every detail on this house . . .
cottage style shutters
large stone pathway
even the rows of geraniums on the windowsills
. . . what's not to love, right?
. . . inviting curved driveway, side porch with balcony, window boxes
beautiful landscaping, it just goes on and on.
So of course I was even more thrilled to see some
pictures of the interior.
Many times I have seen homes that I love on the outside
but then not so crazy about the interior.
Well, that is not the case with this house at all.
Look how gorgeous this kitchen is!
I'm pretty sure the fact that it's decorated in blue
means it's suppose to be mine, don't you think?
Such a pretty dining area.
My eyes were drawn to the blue enamel canisters
in the background - love those!
Gorgeous study with a double sided desk ~
and amazing workmanship on the walls and ceiling.
The backyard continues with it's charming details.
It's like an enchanted garden.
I really think I should have this house, don't you?
I would invite you all over for a long weekend - promise!
We could sip lemonade and iced tea and play croquet on the lawn!
I hope you enjoyed Happy Hollow!
Have a super wonderful weekend!!
