simple is beautiful

Cottage Lovin'

Friday, April 30, 2010

I thought that the month of April would be a good time to share pictures of houses with significant curb appeal so every Friday I have been doing just that.  I will continue to share charming houses with you, but from now on it will be a little more sporadic and not limited to Fridays...unless of course you like to see a cute little house every Friday.  

So here is the final drive least for now.

Every time I go for a run, I pass by this house.  I have watched it evolve with landscape, a brick drive way, and a new garage around back.  Those are all fabulous improvements and I am sure that they serve the purposes of every day life, but I am drawn to the simple charm that I see here.

These flower pots filled with geraniums by the upstairs windows are perfectly charming. 

I am sharing this with The Inspired Room where you will find lots of inspiration.  Have a great weekend!


  1. What a nice touch! Don't you love when you can tell the homeowner knows to do the little things? :)

  2. Yes I do Emily, especially when it is in my neighborhood and I get to see it every day.

  3. Sweet! I love geraniums,old cottages, and charming neighborhoods!

  4. My dream house was in there somewhere. Love me a lil cottage.
    Blessings and I love the idea of curb appeal houses. I'll be back to check out more.

  5. Um, yeah, I WANT this house! So charming! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

  6. Those potted geraniums are perfection, I am so glad that they put them in the sweet window ledges. What a simple but lovely addition. Cute little house! I love your "Drive By" series and am going to check out a few more right now. Hope you have a great weekend Rene!

  7. What a beautiful home! It looks like you have a pretty neighbourhood-I bet it's not a chore jogging past these lovely homes.

    Best wishes for a great weekend,

  8. This house looks lovely! As a homeowner that takes great pride in our home, landscaping, etc. it's always nice when neighbors do the same.
