I have to interrupt the regularly scheduled holiday programming to let you know that I've gone and fallen in love with another house. It's a fancy one that's out of my league. I've been looking at too much Houzz.com and now my expectations are all out of whack and I am having difficulty settling for what's in my price range.
We first saw this house last spring when it came on the market. It sat for a long time. We watched. It's come off the market but will re-list in Jan / Feb. I have unrealistic hopes that it can be negotiated into my price range. That is not likely. What is more likely is that we will become known as the local 'low ballers' and real estate agents will laugh when they see us coming.
Here are some pics from the house. You will notice that it is gorgeous. It is big and it is done. Unlike so many places where we live that are old and require a huge amount of work this one has been done. No more contractors.....no more jobs that don't go as I had hoped.....oh to dream.
Island needs to be repainted but the appliances and cupboards are stunning
And the most amazing of all - a pool! Think of the friends we'd have.
So there you have it. My dream house. Found. Just need to find the funds. Fingers crossed. Donations accepted.
Okay - tomorrow we'll return to the regularly scheduled holiday programming
I leave you today with this amusing item:
