The 'Pink House'

I love this house. But it wasn't "prettied up" this Summer. -sigh- It's owned. yes. So it's odd that it wasn't gotten ready for the Season.

When it is all
"prettied up" with lots and lots of flowers... It reminds me of the set for a 50's musical film. I can almost see Doris Day coming out the front door and singing a song, on the front porch. :-)

Btw, this is one of these "Summer Cottages" which I was lucky enough to get inside and take a tour. A friend is a real estate person and this house was up for sale. She *made believe* I was a perspective buyer, so I got a tour. :-) Funny thing is, once inside, it wasn't as magical. But then, if I had unlimited income and could fix it up inside, to match my outside vision of it {a set for a Doris Day turn-of-the-century musical}, then I could make it purrrfect. Dream on Mari-Nanci! :-))))

And yes, that's almost a 'Widow's Walk' kind of a 'thing' on the tippy-top.

Not all property is taken care of...

-sigh- See... Not all buildings here, are taken care of. This very unique Carriage House, is being allowed to go to rack and ruin. And if you are actually standing here and looking at it, you can see that it is getting close to falling down. -sighhh- It's soooooo irritating.

Yes, it is owned, along with the main house.
The main house is being repaired, now and then. The bottom pic, is what can be seen from the main house. It's in less ugly condition.

A headquarters...

This one was purchased by a business, and used as a headquarters. Naturally, we're happy to have the house preserved, this way also. Through night lit windows, it sill looks lovely inside.

Big Red Bug....

Yes, this is a sculpture of a big red bug, we guess. It's on a very near-by college campus. By
near-by I mean, across the street.

College Campus = Lots of *Artsy-Fartsy* stuff. Actually, you can sort-of-see what this sculpture is supposed to be of. Not so, with others! Wow!

But then, I guess I'm just not .... Liberal-College-type couth, sophisticated, refined. THANK HEAVENS! -grin-
