All About Me Meme- Day 15

Okay, I am a few days behind on my All About Me Meme, and today I am picking up on Day 15, which is “your dream house.”  I am behind in the All About Me posts partially because I spent forever looking for the photo for this post.  I just had two photos in my hands last week of this house.  I finally had to admit defeat and google it.

The house I am about to show you is one that I have oohed and aahed over for YEARS.  It is down the street from my late Uncle Elmer’s home in Mound City, IL.

I adore the colors of the house, as well as that round spire looking thing.  I have long wanted to tour this home, but have never had the nerve to go up and knock on the door.  I love the look of  Victorian homes.

That being said, I think the house that I have now is pretty cool.

About a year before Hubs and I met, I had visited a friend and her family in their home in northern Illinois.  That house was GRAND.  I mean, absolutely gorgeous.  It was newly built, had fabulous architecture, and is quite literally one of the prettiest homes I have ever been in.  At the time, I was struggling to pay off my debts, as well as the debts that I incurred in efforts to keep my late Grandma’s property from being sold to cover debts that she owed at the time of her death.

As I drove away from my friend’s home that day, I remember thanking God for the way he was blessing her and her husband.  And then I said, “Lord, give me a home. I don’t need anything grand.  I just want a modest home at the end of a street somewhere, where I can raise my kids and let them play outside, and not have to worry about the neighbors.”

The Lord answered that prayer, when Hubs bought our home a year before we were married.  I now live in the home that I prayed for.  It’s nothing grand.  Just a modest home.  On a cul de sac.  Where I can let my kids play outside.  And not worry about the neighbors.  So, while the house in the photo above is my fantasy house, the home I have now is all I ever wanted.   Unless, of course, the two story house up the street from us ever goes up for sale.  LOL.

What is your dream home?

  1. That wraparound porch is what I really love!!!!

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the wrap around porch!! That is what i will have one day 🙂 Beautiful dream home!!

  3. So pretty. I would choose this as well

  4. Very cute! It has a great storybook castle kind of feel to it.

  5. I love the outside look of Victorians as well. This one is very unusual with the rounded spire (?) I love when they are painted in period colors, they don’t call them painted ladies for nothing! the few I have been inside have small tiny rooms, but I suppose the larger foot-print ones have larger rooms? Fairy tails dreams 🙂 I am not a fan of most of the furniture of that time ( the upholstered) they look too stiff & fragile. I like big soft & lived in, nothing fancy pants for me . ~hugs~
