Lately, I have been dreaming of again living in a vintage home. This one always catches my eye, but it is not for sale, and even if it was, the costs to restore it would be staggering, as no one has even lived in it for the 7 years we have lived in Sorrento.
Down around the corner from this abandoned house is this pretty white garden gate.
The seaside lupines are just beginning to bloom. This time of year on the coast, it is a sign of an early summer.
Here is another seaside summer home. I just love how the lilacs spill over the entrance gate.
Even this abandoned boat is appealing to me.
Yep, that paint is definitely "a peeling"!
What is it about the ocean, that makes even abandoned objects seem romantic?
This is one of the scenes along our drive into Ellsworth, a 12 mile trip to where we do our grocery shopping.
On our way there 2 days ago, something caught our eye. A new listing of a vintage seaside home that caused us to end up pulling in the driveway for a closer look. It is currently vacant.
Henri fell in love. Hard. And me? I'm a little scared to actually schedule a visit to view the inside.
I asked Henri, "What if it has ghosts?" He replied "So?" But that's not what I'm scared of. (And you thought I was a Fearless Nester. ) When it comes right down to it, I may crave shabby, but I know we have it really good where we're at now.
