Neighborhood Love


I love my neighborhood! I love my neighborhood, my neighbors, the neighborhood kids, my house (when it is clean...which isn't very often) and everything about the area I live in. I live on a flag lot. My house sits behind the other houses in my court so we have lots of privacy when we want it. I have 3 boys and they have tons of space to run wild...and they do. Man boys can be loud!! Every so often we have impromptu get togethers in the court. I will drag my chair out to the street with a bottle of wine in hand...before long one neighbor has joined me with her chair and glass...and then another...and then another. The kids run around playing hide and go seek tag. It's great memories. What do you love about your neighborhood??
p.s. Only 2 days until Pfatt Marketplace Halloween in June...

I love your house, and your neighborhood!! We're on a culdesac as well, but our neighbors drive like maniacs so our kids will never be allowed to play out front.

Hmmmmmm... I love my view, I love the quiet.. I love that we get to feed bluebirds from our dining room window, and they come to our hands. Last but not least, I love my kitchen!

Thanks for the nice comment, the shelf was a ton of fun to design and paint!

Beautiful, Colleen. I remember driving into your neighborhood and thinking how gorgeous all the houses and gardens were.

You have a gorgeous home Colleen! Your remodel is perfect for a magazine spread and your neighborhood is lovely. I remember those days as a kid playing hide and seek - what fun for the kids. Enjoy your everyday retreat!

My favorite thing...your whole entire driveway & front yard covered in the "Moody tree leaves" when I come at Christmas. I brought some home with me in the bed of my truck this year.
