Daily Prompt: Dream Home – My Painted Lady

You don’t need to dream the house if your dream house is just around the corner. Not built to order, but restored to perfection. The classic Victorian across from St. Mary’s church, near the old high school is perfect.

Known as “Painted Ladies” for the fancy painting done on the gingerbread trim and the many colors used to accentuate their architecture, these are wonderful homes to live in. High ceilings, bay windows, air, light, enough room for all the people you love. Mahogany wainscoting, carved moldings, a huge veranda — now screened for comfort — with room enough for rocking chairs and a porch swing. And when the holidays come round, the living room (drawing-room, if you like) is big enough to display a 20-foot Christmas tree with grace.

  1. That’s a great dream home. What a wonderfully creative life you could live in such a space.

  2. What a gorgeous lady that is! I too dream of residing in Victorians or Craftsman bungalows…but am happily settled for now with what I’ve got – an affordable rather than exquisite centurion, most historic detail remodeled away by former residents, but still a home with solid old bones.

    • I dream of them, but I’d never be able to handle taking care of one. Assuming I could afford the overhead (I can’t), I haven’t energy or interest in spending my time doing housework. Now, if I had a full staff of maids, THAT would be different! Our house is plain, but it suits us well enough and it’s easy to care for, located in a pretty place. It will do 🙂
