Amazing!

Pin It Now!


When I was taking photos of the vine-covered homes for yesterday's post I had to snap a photo of this beautiful Victorian to share with you! It's also in the Willow Glen area of San Jose, California.  I've seen this home through the years (actually decades) but it is more beautiful now than ever! I love these soft colors and how they make the red roses pop! This photo was actually taken through the windshield of my car! haha.


I have some exciting news to share with you....

My little patio is in the current issue of Porch Magazine.  In case you aren't familiar with Porch, it was started by two bloggers,  Polly~Counting your Blessings and Tracie~My Petite Maison and it's all about bloggers and their businesses!  They have really done an amazing job! You can order the current or past issues here.

Thank you so much Polly and Tracie for including me in your wonderful publication!  I'm so honored!

I love your patio, Cindy! I'm not surprised it made it to a magazine. I was thinking Romantic Homes should do it. We are hoping to down-size in a couple of years and I'd be quite happy with your "little patio"!

Oh My...... That victorian home is too die for. I've always dreamed of living in a home just like it. Made me chuckle to when I noticed the street sign for the street named "Minnesota" because I live in Minnesota. Wonder if that's God's way of trying to tell me that that beautiful home is destined to belong to some Minnesota gal in the future..LOL. Congrats on your feature in Porch Magazine as well.

Oh, I always love your patio. Perfect example of the wonderful job that can be done with love and talent, no matter the space.

So happy for you!

What a beautiful and charming home! I just adore older homes, especially Victorian homes, as they have so much character to them...all the fretwork and fru-fru :) Nothing compares to them. The colors are so wonderful and soft..A real Painted Lady!

Congratulations of your porch being featured in Porch magazine!

Warmest, Brenda
