Drive By Houses
Do you ever drive a certain way so that you can see a house you like? I do! Besides the fact that if I drive the same route over and over (like when I take Sarah to work) I get bored, so I have to find new routes.
Melissa from The Inspired Room used to do 'drive bys' of houses or neighborhoods she liked. So I decided to do that and share two houses, in different styles that I like very much. They are on the same road surrounded by farmland, here in Lancaster County.
The first one reminds me of a colonial farmhouse, and has a bit of a New England feel to it.
I always think I'd love to see inside, but then are afraid I'd be disappointed! What if it looked modern inside, or had purple walls in a bedroom?! Those things are fine, but not in this house! Right? So, I just drive by and enjoy the way this house delights me.
The next home is the home of a pretty well known decor blogger. 14 years ago she spoke at a ladies retreat I attended before she or I began to blog. I do not know her, really, but I like the look of her house!
And because of her blogging, I know what the inside of her house is like. Its a bit of a mix between farmhouse and traditional.
So, do any of you do drive bys? Are Melissa and I the only ones who do this? Tell me about it in the comments!
We're off on our get away this evening, so I'll be back here next week. Of course, I'll post on Instagram and keep up with most of you there, too!
