First thing yesterday a.m., as we often do, the dogs + we went for a short hike.
Here are the girls, en route:
Chloe, at left, + Dory in the back of “Daddy’s” Ranchero.
On the way home, we had a little cruise around town,
which is just another way of saying
Kay’s looking at + passing judgement on houses.
Yesterday’s cruise was especially exciting for me.
Check this out:
So, they pretty much had me at that siding + all that trim work.
But what is so over-the-top awesome that I would be so enthusiastic? you ask?
Here’s a hint: the black window sashes:
People. I shan’t lie — I am obsessed with colored window sashes.
Back at home, I headed to Pinterest, to search for more
because I wanted to blog + share with the class:
It’s like eyeliner for a house!
That works indoors, well.
Black isn’t the only window sash color that I love.
Here we have maybe my favorite:
OMiGosh! RED RULES, does it not?
In case you’re not on board, here’s more!
I blogged about this:
If I am so obsessed,
you are probably asking if we, too, have colored sashes at the Dutch colonial.
Sadly, the black or the red versions of our windows were over our budget.
We really love them, though.
They’re vinyls from Andersen, + I blogged about them, here:
That sash, while vinyl, sits on the outside of the windowpanes,
which gives it the illusion of being original to our house.
So. I really want to know.
Do you love to cruise around + admire/dislike houses in your town?
What’s the best one you’ve seen this summer?
