  4. Living on the coast of N.C. I can certainly understand. The water draws you in and doesn't let you go. I feel land logged if I go too far inward. These pictures are just beautiful. The sky, oh my! Sweet Ella seems to be enjoying the ride.

    Our small coastal town is still recoving from Irene. There was so much damage city wide. We were spared but many were not so fortunate. It is taking forever for the cty to clean up. That's what happens when FEMA is involved. Local businesses could have had it done weeks ago. So goes the state of politics!

  5. Gorgeous! Whenever I go to Costco or Home Depot (located side by side) I marvel at the view of the mountains and tell my husband that 'this Costco has the best view in the world' but I'd say that your HD is a close contender!

  9. It's beautiful, right? Sometimes I forget what's in my backyard. Try not to take it for granted. Look at it as a beautiful blessing to live on the water.

  12. Wonderfully beautiful photos and drive home as well as lovely photo of Ella. Also why we moved to Montana...this Southern girl loves the light this time of year, color season and snow!

  14. Amazing! I just returned from a quick weekend in Myrtle Beach and saw some goosebump inducing sunrises there. Nothing beats rising with the sun.

  15. What a beautiful lake(?). What is it called? Yep, that's an image that could make me want to move.

  16. Could this possibly be Dublin Lake ? Just wondering, one of my favorite views if it is !

    ReplyDelete
  17. I was just coming to ask if it was Dublin Lake, but I see someone beat me to it...great minds think alike....I wonder if we're right? If so, its one of my favorites. I also love the old cemetery on the opposite side of the road looking out on to the lake! :)

  20. I would have packed up and headed east in a heartbeat! Lucky you!

    Outside of my neighborhood, I don't even think there's a tree between my house and HD. :)

  21. Don't blame you! I'd move there too! There's nothing like driving by a lake on your way home. It just says..welcome for the whole trip.

  33. Surroundings are as much a part of your home as your actual property, and help to make up the real value of living in a certain area or house.

    Hugs,

  40. Joan,
    You're not kidding, so beautiful! Btw, I finally picked up a copy of Renovation Style and was thrilled to see every detail of your photo shoot! My husband spent a good deal of time looking at it too since I've talked about how much I LOVE your house :) ever since I first found your blog!
    xo,

  41. Jealous. I wish my drive home from Home Depot was even half this nice... try run down motels from when honeymooners flocked to Niagara Falls and needed somewhere cheap to stay, an abandoned factory, plus 2 torn down factories with bricks left as a sort of residue, and then house after house of mediocrity. LOL! Then you get to my house ... not sure what that says for it! hehehe!

  42. Your star, Ella....looks just perfect there....Beautiful Joan....xv

  43. I just moved to Dallas from NYC, and let me tell you the drives home from Home Depot do not look anything like that. UGH! You make me swoon for the Northeast. Learning to love Dallas one day at a time. I feel like I need about a thosand more days though...lol. Thank you. For your daily inspiration. BREATHTAKING sunsets. I'm only 27 and hope that one day my husband and I can do the same exact thing you guys did. = my total dream of life.

  45. Hi Joan! Beautiful pictures! Seriously, such a lovely part of the U.S. I truly hope our family can make it up there sometime. I know I'd just fall in love...over and over again.
    Anyhoo...so I am trying to figure out which bamboo shades you purchased at Lowes. If you get a chance, could you take a peek and tell me which ones they are? Thanks a bunch. Here is the link:

  46. When my Mother in Law was visiting last week she asked me if I would ever move back to Texas. And honestly, as much as I still think of myself as a true Texan, I can't imagine ever leaving Maine. I just love it up here. On my drive in to work today I couldn't help but smile because of the beautiful fall colors. As "homesick" as I can get for Texas, I know that I am truly home :)

  47. Just beautiful!
    I loved seeing your gorgeous home in print.
