A Tease


We began our house search on Friday evening at this adorable cottage on Main St. It's not officially on the market yet but they were kind enough to let us have a preview. Out of the 5 houses we saw this weekend, it had the most interior charm. It was very much my taste. Sadly, it is just too small for us. We would have to add a second floor to make it work. I'm not really ready for that kind of a project right now.

I've got 4 more houses to share with you this week. I thought we would play our own version of House Hunters and let you guess which one you think we should pick. I will tell you this. We found our house. We hope to be making an offer by the end of the week or as soon as we can get our financial stuff together for the bank and afterward I will share with you which one we picked. Until then all prayers, happy vibes and good wishes will be happily accepted.

  5. Ooh! I like this game!!

    I can't help but think that the HOUSE you choose will be even luckier than you. What house wouldn't want the likes of you loving it?

  6. Oh, I can hardly wait to see!! I hope everything goes well with your offer... and I'm looking forward to your own version of House Hunters, although "they" never seem to pick the house I would.

  37. Now that is one cute little cottage....perfect for my Village getaway house, don't you think?
    Now there's an idea.

  38. So glad you found what you were looking for. I hope all goes perfectly in making it yours. Yes, please show the other houses. I'm such a house lover that I want to see them all.

    I think if there were an open house sign in front of a port-a-potty, I would have a look.
