Saturday stuff

Today was such a beautiful day to drive around- I thought I'd share 3 of my dream houses in Independence. Missouri-
I love the way these windows tilt out on the front. The darker pix are a house that I have always wanted to look inside - I think there's a pool in the back, but I didn't want to make the owners think I was a peeping tom. The one with the turquoise square on the front -I have featured on the blog before, but since it's in the best shape of all, I wanted it to be with the other flat tops. Two of the houses seem like the owners don't really appreciate what they've got. The best one, I think the owners have actually lived there since the fifties, and is immacutlate! I am really glad we got a great weekend day! Just piddling around, cooking, cleaning and shopping is my favorite kind of day. Hope you enjoy these little gems as much as I do.

Oh those bushes and tree need to be cut down so the tilted front windows can be the focal point.

I wish my house design was special like that one!

Oh my that last one makes me so sad :( Perhaps that means the owners are older and will be selling soon or maybe they're hoarders! In that case, I would have to pass!

I agree! The windows are the best part of the house, which actually isn't in bad shape, but the junk and the bushes...no. Zootsuitmama
