Since it is getting so close to Halloween, I thought that I would keep in the spirit of the holiday and go searching for some horror houses that are not so horrible. In fact, these horror houses are quite beautiful once the illusion from production has been removed.
Create a Fall Landscape with these fall landscaping ideas
Well, another season has come and gone. Now, you are probably getting your self ready for the fall and winter that is to come – cleaning gutters, winter proofing windows and doors, and raking the fallen leaves. But, what is one to do to have something nice to look at during those bare tree months?
Recently, a new trend has arisen in home design and construction. The Tiny House! Maybe because of t.v. shows such as “Tiny House Builders” or “Tiny House, Big Living,” but whatever the reason, downsizing to the nth degree is fast becoming the thing to do.
Now, while I can’t say that a tiny house is everyone’s cup of tea, I can certainly say that I appreciate the reasoning behind it. I also can appreciate the skill and sometimes ingenious ideas that go into creating one of these special abodes.
Are you traditional?
I frequently come across people that are asking for advise or commenting on different interior design styles, and one thing that I have noticed is that many of these people don’t know exactly what constitutes a particular style. Generally, I try to show people photos of different rooms to see which ones they like, and what about those rooms that they find attractive. I do this because, more often than not, simply taking their word on what interior design styles they want may or may not turn out to be pleasing to them.
A few years ago, I had a row of Little Gem Magnolias planted along the side of my driveway to serve as a screen for the garage area. I have been anxiously awaiting the day when these small trees would mature into a somewhat reasonable size. The first spring they did pretty well for a newly planted tree. Then, lo and behold, this past winter, a buck that loves to visit my yard nearly sheared one of these babies completely in half. (I call him Uncle Buck – because he is like the family member that you dread to have visit). 🤣
