If walls could talk.


Remember when you were a kid traveling to new places didn't you just love riding around in the family car looking out the windows oohing & aahing at those great old houses? I did & I still do..I love finding the Historic District & going back in time in my mind thinking what was it like then, oh the families that lived in these houses, the style, the furniture, the gardens the life the stories... If these walls could talk.. I took these pictures last Sunday in Fernandina Beach/Amelia Island Fl..the first house below has been on my mind so much that I posted it on my FB I am going back this Sunday to talk more pictures to post...you will just love it.

This he entire house is made from salvaged things....the side walkway is covered with an amazing wood archway & covering,, it is just beautiful and the back has a guest house & green house made from old windows, chippy salvaged wood & a fabulous vegetable garden.. love it! It's like Green acres meets Shabby Chic. Call me crazy I plan on knocking on the door to let them know how much I love their Sweet Salvaged Castle... to be continued. xo Laura

Below are some of the homes I took pictures of..

Hello love your blog,
I have done that exact thing as a child look at the houses and wished I lived in that state or town.

In fact I still drive through area's to look at homes, and I am passing it down to my daughter age 16 who love to drive with me :)

keep inspiring us all with your creative energy.

That house is a work of art! Love it!

Maybe you will even get a close up look...I stopped once and told the owners that I'd loved their house since I was a little girl...they took me on a tour! Like a dream come true, it was as sweet on the inside as on the outside!
