We have returned from vacation...through 6 states and back in 8 days! Whew! Longer road trips are getting to be more fun now that the kids are getting older. The dvd and ipods help, too, although we frequently turned everything off and said “Look around, we don't get to see this stuff every day!” And, we discovered that a boogie board makes a great lap desk for playing cards or Farkle in the car!
In my last post I shared some highlights from New Orleans, but I couldn't move on without showing you some of the lovely homes that I saw. We didn't go to any special area in particular, I just photographed wherever we happened to be the homes that caught my eye for one reason or another.
I'll just add a few comments here and there and let you enjoy the home tour!
This was one of my favorites. We really liked the brick,
the fence, and the fabulous big front porch.
I'm not sure what this building was for, but it was pretty! Barely caught it,
taken while riding the trolley.
It was nice to see all of the real, functioning shutters. Around my area,
they're just for looks!
Pretty shutters and landscaping-
I believe I could live very happily in this little garage apartment
around the back of this house-
I liked the intricate railing on this one.
This one was my very favorite-the color scheme, the architectural details, the design, the landscaping, & those red doors! Perfection!
