Home of the week and other things......

This week's "Home of the Week," is not really my taste, but I do love the before and after photos.  They really did a good job, of bringing light into the home.  It is amazing what the right wall colours, and staging does to an old house, plus some renovations.  They brought a tired dark home back to life.  Not sure I would pay $2 million though for the house?

If you don't click on any of the other links click on this one for the "Cottage of the Week."  Mind you paying $12 million for a cottage on it's own island is probably out of all of our reaches.  It's way over board for me this place, just too much of everything, don't you think?  Even the grounds feel over done as well, not at all natural.  I think I'll pass on this one!!!!

Want to pay $7.5 million for this week's "Condo of the Week," go ahead I won't be fighting you for it!!  The swimming pool is so wrong it looks like a fish tank perched on the terrace.  I wonder why they didn't put any furniture in it to stage it?  At the selling price isn't it expected?  I obviously don't move in the right circles, as I had no idea who Peter Freed was, I had to Google his name!!!!

I had to go into town on Thursday, so I went into the thrift stores, in my search for tea cups.  Didn't find any sets, BUT did find this platter for $3.  It's lovely isn't it?

It poured down all day on Thursday, and I took a photo of Molly staring out of the window.  She is probably thinking about whether she should venture outside, but with it raining will it make her shrink as she's "allergic" to water!!!

Oh yes fancy homes and cottages make me want to move. Not really when I see these homes I always think of the cleaning I used to clean for a living. I guess that is all I will see.
Love the platter nice pattern.
Molly is awesome. B

I think all the homes show that money doesn't equal taste!

Definitely out of my price range. :) But truth be told, I wouldn't buy it even if I could afford it.

That's a great picture of Molly, so sweet. Your plate was a great find, very pretty. I'll look at the links for the homes in a little while. Always enjoy them.

2 million dollars? Never. Do like the floors there though. And this is an awesome dish! Nice find!

Truth be told, I like the cabin...not for that price...even if I had it...but I do like it. I would change a lot...but there is just something about it I really like.
