Inspiration Friday - Backyard houses

Pin It Now!



In keeping with the theme of last week, here are some more little backyard houses. Someday I would love to have a little place in my backyard that I could decorate. I don't care if it's a play house, garden house, conservatory, a pool house, a studio or just a potting shed. Just a place to decorate with things I love. First I need to get a home that has a backyard big enough! Hmmm...Maybe I should start looking for a husband or maybe just buy more lotto tickets???

I love your beautiful photos today--I would enjoy something like that, too (I think that we would both love to decorate anything that stands still long enough! :)

Very lovely inspiration today!

Thanks for the lucious eye candy! If you go for a hubby, please do your fans a favor and set the ground rules AHEAD of time - no interfering with your decorating. We need kyour pictures and inspiration, otherwise, we cannot allow a marriage. Thanks for checking with us on that.

Those photos are gorgeous! Wouldn't it be a ton of fun to have a place like that? I vote for the husband, providing you can find one as sweet as mine. If not though, go for the tickets! xoxo

Both beautiful photos! I especially love that chair & table in the second photo.
I want a "little house" in our backyard too. I really want it to be a potting shed!
Hope we both get our "little buildings" someday!

Cindy,
First, thanks for the nice comments on my blog.
I love those pictures. I have always wanted one of those little houses in my backyard. I doubt if our HOA would allow that, but a girl can dream.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Lovely photos! I'd love a glass conservatory ... I'll never actually have one but it's nice to dream! ♥

Sue said...

Love the photos, and would love to have my own play house to decorate and have lunch parties in, how fun!!

okay! that first house is nicer than any ol' house i've ever been in. i likey, likey! i lovey, lovey. it's a dreamer type place. it's a place to go when the ants come marching in on the spilt cranberry juice that's been left on the kitchen tile for at least three days. into my file it goes. have a great weekend. blessings! p.s. what's this husband searching? did i miss something. are you somewhere in life with a potential hubby that i'm unaware of? just wonderin'. just pokin' into your business. : )

Thanks, for Friday's inspiration, it is always so nice. And you inspired me to do a tiny inspiration Friday posting on my blog.

I think the vintage glass top table and chair is sooooo pretty! I wish I'd stumble upon one of those at a yard sale....it's darling!

I love your photos - it would be great to have a place like those in the pictures!

I don't know why there's a double post by me in your herb post? Hopefully you can delete the extra one.

Oooohhh, I could just browse your blog all day! Lovely pics!! Thank you. We just moved into a place with a potting shed made out of old windows, but it's pretty bedraggled and needs lots of help! Maybe someday it could look like one of these!

Niesz Vintage Home said...

Oh My!!! Isn't that the most perfectly elegant outdoor space.
I want one!
That's the best inspiration picture I've seen all day.

Lovely.

Beautiful pictures. I think you should just win the lottery. Single life is the best.

Saturday mornings I wake up at 6:00 am just like it was a school day (even knowing, mentally, I can sleep in) just for the hour or so I have before the boys wake up to dwell over all of my "inspiration" magazines I have (this, while listening to DIY network on the TV or the cooking channel...all of those)and get charged for the day. I don't have "the big Lotto" ticket or a husband, but have found so much inspiration from sites such as yours and so many others, that I manage to create my dream home by incremental degrees and as my budget allows. Sometimes it's just a potted plant on my back deck that I get to see every morning that makes me feel better. It must be that way for a lot of other people as well.

But what I DO know is that inspiration comes from within, and the best thing I've gotten out of this whole "blog atmosphere" I have recently created is a view into my life & home & children from someone else's perspecive...and from the outside it looks pretty good and I am very fortunate!!!

For that I thank everyone one of you for sharing your lives and your dreams with ME... a total stranger in North Carolina that would love to meet you all!! Have a wonderful weekend and do something just for YOUSELVES!

Cindy your blog has meant so much to me, when I'm feeling a bit uninspired I find myself going to your blog, I've been walking around our home with new eyes, we have an open attic space, one end is our bed and the other end with a big picture window is a mess, pretty much where the dog sleeps, on shabby (no not fashionable shabby) couches, your beautiful photos this week have inspired me to create a little haven in our attic. thanks Cindy for sharing your life with us

Cindy, I have the first picture in my FAVORITES folder!
I bought a small building at auction last fall so I am excited to get to decorating it and turning it into a guest cottage!

Thank you for the inspiration!
