Dream Home

Did you ever see a picture or painting of a place, and just know it was your dream home?

My sister-in-law sent this Christmas card to us (thank you K).  I would love to live here....
The barn converted into a house and painted RED!  The little shop to have as a studio and a place to sell my pieces.  The mountain behind the home.  The pond with the dock.

Yes, my dream home.  How about you?  Would you love to live here too?
Welcome Home,
Penny

  1. I would love to live in that little scene. I got a magical card this week too and think I just might frame it!

  2. Looks like paradise to me. Great photo of the card too...how did you do that? I think you should frame either the photo or the card like Catherine mentioned. Who knows? Maybe someday...

  3. Dear Penny,

    How lovely! Isn’t if fun to dream! I love snow and the chance to sit around a warm fire with a hot cup of cocoa or coffee. Let it snow!

    Alas, I do not live where it snows; however, I do get to go visit the snow, which is about an hour away - sometimes we are blessed with a visit up there when it is actually snowing. ☺

    I have a dream of living in a cottage by the sea, or at least getting to live in one a few months of the year - what a dream that is!

    There are so many lovely dreams…

    ☺ Hope

  5. I would love a home like that! There is actually a big red converted barn close by here, we can see stained glass windows and fancy iron work inside, I have dreamed of touring that place for years, it has some beautiful outbuildings and even a fenced "paddock" backyard. Sigh, such is the thing that dreams are made of!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. This is an idyllic scene and I would love to live there, or spend Christmas there. I adore ponds and water birds.

  9. Oh, that's lovely! I admit, though, that Lavender Hill is my dream house... I sure wouldn't mind moving it to THAT setting though !!!!!

  12. It does look perfect! It's very Norman Rockwell "ish". Now to find that perfect home in real life.....hmmmm.

  13. Absolutely. I saw so many wonderful barns in Kentucky and I always dreamed of one of them being home. This is definitelya fairytale place. Hugs, Marty

  16. I'd love to live there. I've always wanted to live in a one room schoolhouse (don't see those much anymore) or a small church.

  17. Ahhh very pretty. My Mom has a friend that actually converted an old barn to her home. I have never been there but my Mom said it was quite nice. She has lots of land too, no mountains though.

    Yep, I could easily live there!
    I love all the red, for sure.
    And mountain and a pond both, what more could you ask for!
    I believe that's Canadian geese I see too.

  20. Beautiful card and beautiful place...but I will let you have that one...me, I would like to live over looking a lake....with a creek running near my home....an old victorian house...oh, dreams are fun!!

  21. Yes, beautiful. I too would love to live in a barn/converted barn with a studio beside it and in that red. I'm a quilter and really need the room. But for now, I will have to be content living in my little 1954 house.......Happy Holidays.

  22. Well......it reminds me of someplace that I love dearly....the ponds, the hills, the ducks....but we don't live in a converted barn.

  23. It is certainly pretty but I will pass on living in the snow. I'd love the see a barn that you had converted. With all your decorating talent I'll bet it would be something wonderful.

  24. That would be the perfect place for me, too. Luckily, we live in the country, so I at least get to see homes somewhat like this one. I grew up in a small town, but the country life is much better for me. Hope you're enjoying the season!

  26. I think all of us would love to live in such a beautiful place. Of course, I would want my son and family on one side and daughter and her family on the other.....:))

  27. But Penny, you do live in a dream home with the mountains in the background :)

    I have often said someone could easily live in my neighbor's barn. It's beautiful. It has an office in it and a bathroom. He put fresh green wreaths on the doors yesterday.

  34. Penny, build it! It couldn't be that expensive, right? Such a beautiful scene!

  35. Beautiful card...... Although I have to admit I don't wanna live in a barn, I do love the idea of it -- there's a certain romance to be sure. And that picture creates it!


    My own dream house would look more like Aiken House in Prince Edward Island.... http://warrengrovegarden.blogspot.com/

    Thanks for the chance to dream a little this morning.... happy day!
