Pools at Home

Hello my friends! With summer heating up to  temperatures that make us want to stay inside with air conditioning turned to high.  A pool is definitely  a fine investment!

Just a small pool to wet your feet or relax and go for a swim.    No need for big entertaining! Have some towels for guests, cold drinks and lounge chairs for conversation.  Love when the pool fits the landscaping like it belonged there with green grass and nature surrounding the pretty blue water.

Enjoy the Summer! And Check out these fine pools for a swim!

Check out the pretty beach homes and porches 

Take a ride and enjoy the view!

Dutch Colonial Homes

Happy Summer friends!   After a trip to the  beach  I kept thinking about the beautiful architecture of some of the big  homes and many appear to be of Dutch colonial architecture. The style  has always been a favorite.   It brings me back to the past and reminds of  when life was simple and uncomplicated.

Dutch Colonial is a style of domestic architecture, primarily characterized by gambrel roofs having curved eaves along the length of the house. Modern versions built in the early 20th century are more accurately referred to as "Dutch Colonial Revival," a subtype of the Colonial Revival style.
