Love the first two stately mansions. The abandoned house and the bird house are charming.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Beautiful houses. The abandoned home has kind of a ramshackle charm to it.

RuneE said...

I have a feeling that the inhabitants of No. 56 win the cosiness prize.

Stuart said...

OK, I think you've got the range of housing options there. Each is charming in its own way.

LONDONLULU said...

That quote is fantastic, and that abandoned house somehow the most compelling of all. Happy 2014, hope it's off to a great start!

Andy said...

You had me cursing the rich until I scrolled down and saw my house. :) Thanks for the laugh.

Sandra said...

they are all three beautiful homes. i would prefer the second one to live in if it was fixed up. the others are gorgeous but way way to big for me.. the Victorian is my favorite for looks

TexWisGirl said...

this 'mix' made me smile. :)

Lisa Gordon said...

I love the mix of houses here!
The first one is gorgeous, but I think the third one is my favorite.

Karen said...

Love the bird house!

Linda W. said...

Interesting collection of homes -something for everyone! :)

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

A nice selection of homes, well done. I like the abandoned one best although it may leak in the rain and be cold in the winter.

Lowell said...

I really like the first two; the rest not so much. But any house can be made into a home with the right ingredients. Lovely photos. The bird house is very cute. Wonder what "56" means.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

That's quite the range of homes. The first two are beautiful,but too big for my taste.

Ruth Kelly said...

Tis a lovely victorian house. The bird house is cute with a number on it - clever.

Halcyon said...

The first two look so pretty with the snow! I'm not sure if any birds can fit in the birdhouse though. :)

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Yes, lovely selection!
The birdhoues is quirky. Nice find!

Love the abandon house and would love to have that bird house hanging in my yard.

What a great post for your H word! I love all the gingerbread on the Victorian, and the abandoned house is a real vintage shot.

Randy said...

Nice shot. That abandoned house could be so cute.

Barb said...

Great to see all the different ramifications of "home."

irememberpasta said...

Such beautiful homes. Even the abandoned one has historic charm. Love the comment about today's home...where everyone waits for the car to come back. So true! Happy New Year to you.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Love all of your houses!

Rose said...

That Victorian house is something else...all are beautiful...and I love that old abandoned one....

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

The top two are very nice but there looks to be an awful lot of dusting and window-cleaning to be done. A charming selection.

Small City Scenes said...

A house is a home to whomever lives there.
Neat shots. MB

Home is where the heart is EG, bet each of these has been or is special to someone!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

The first house looks like it is covered with powdered sugar.

see you there! said...

Great houses. From an artistic point of view I like the abandoned one. Something about old or abandoned buildings always attracts me.

Wow the green Victorian home certainly takes the cake for me!

what beautiful homes. I love the porches on the two first ones. Looks like the birdhouse is in use! {:-Deb

kelley jensen said...

that's a nice variety of homes and I agree with the quote.

fredamans said...

I'd rather live in the Victorian house than the new one, though it is beautiful. I just prefer the older homes.

edenhills said...

Those first two houses are just amazing! The bird house is pretty darn cute too.

William Kendall said...

That abandoned house could use some attention and love... there's potential there.

I love that Victorian!

Jenny said...

I actually love the sad abandoned house...

It has a lot of character!
