I'm Dreaming of This

There it is...My dream....isn't it adorable? It is here in San Luis Obispo. I can't stop driving by it. We (John) is going to TRY and see if we can come just a LITLE bit close to this here at Farmhouse. He is going to put on the little shed roof and we are going to plant a Virgina Creeper to grow over it. I have it bad for that vine-covered cottage thing. When we moved here 2 years ago the garden was a concrete driveway..the downstairs, well, I can't even talk about it, it was that bad. We pretty much have the inside done...( 2 years of living in a remodel with 2 cats and a blind dog, thank you.)Now for the outside. We need to plant some trees. Turning the whole thing into a vegetable garden was just too much.
We are going to get some liquid amber trees and plant, plant, plant. I don't know how close we can come to this dream..but we'll try. Wish us luck. We're gonna need it.


  1. I've lived through too many renovations, so I applaud you for what you are doing! I am choosing to live with what I have, for the time being....(except for a little paint....and...)

  2. It's been rough going...there was some days I just sat down and cried......

  3. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice commment.

    I know how you feel going through a major renovation. Our house is an old farm house, built in the 1860's. We had to gut it right down to the studs because it was such a mess. There are still projects to do, I don't think it ever ends!

    Your blog is lovely! I'm a new follower!

  4. You can do it! I love the vine. And the walkway. What colors will your vine-covered cottage rendition be?

  5. Dreams do come true and good for you for still dreaming. You'll get there, I am sure.

  6. You'll get your dream come true :) that's the magic of life !

    Have a beautiful and sweet weekend !


  7. Oh this is certainly beautiful! And yes, plant, plant away.
    Thank you for the visit.
    It's lovely here.
    : )

  8. What a fun project you've got on your hands!

    I hope you enjoy the eggnog french toast! We're making eggnog pancakes today! so I'll be thinking of you :)

  9. I grew up in a house that was constantly renovated for the better part of ten years so I hear you! Although oddly as a child I found it to be a lot less onerous than my parents did...I have complete faith that once complete your house will look ever better than this one!

  10. Oh, a red vine in fall will be BEAUTIFUL on your cornflower blue cottage! I can jsut picture it, with lights strung across the front porch and Lionle Richie drifting out the partly opened windows :)

    Cornflower blue is one of my favorite colors!

  11. What a beautiful dream house. But I'm sure your little cottage it darling also. Anything looks good with a vine growing on it. By the way Penny is back to 100% although she still has swelling under her throat. Don't know what they will do about that, but she feels great.

  12. Your dream will absolutely come true and your farmhouse will be beautiful :)

  13. how beautiful! i would love to have a house like that!
