Random Thoughts

Do you ever just look at a picture and instantly get the warm and fuzzies? I grew up in a field stone house in Pennsylvania. We had two huge porches, one in the front and one that ran across the side. I spent countless hours reading, napping and most importantly daydreaming on those porches. I hatched a lot of life planning decisions on those porches. My first home purchase was also an old stone home, a dutch colonial in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. I have to say that I do miss the stone and also an old home. But living in Florida the stone just doesn't work. It's way to heavy a look for a tropical climate. Looking at this picture just makes me want to grab an over sized cozy sweater, a big mug of latte and look off into the valley and daydream away. I have to admit that I'm having thoughts of the Tennessee area, the Nashville area. I have always loved the state of Tennessee. Who knows, life's a journey....

i love the look of stone too, and yes your pic is dreamy... as a native californian i won't build with stone, as much as i love it, earthquakes is what comes to mind... same with gorgoeus fireplaces too... once you have seen things tumble and fall, you don't want things around that can kill you...

you could always build a stone lighthouse in fl, that feels airy!

Hi Kathleen
I've been stalking your blog lol You have a lovely place here.
I adore your 3 fur babies. I have 6, yup and 2 rescued cats that are Seniors.
Love the sand snowman, santa with his flip flops, and so much more.
It's Pink Saturday and I'm wishing you one today.
Freezing rain here in Ontario, so no Boxing day shopping for us.
Love Claudie
