Wow, what cute houses. Has the feel of Wisteria Lane. Love the individuality of them all. You don't see that often here in Texas.

Great street! I love older homes & neighborhoods. The landscaping is established & everything isn't so cookie cutter.

yours is NOT ugly, now the one for sale would be rated right now as such ~ sure hope someone kind fixes it up :) how about you and your mom for your new business? That street has got to be the prettiest one in town. It's always been our favorite~

What a great neighborhood. Reminds me of a movie. FWIW, I don't think your cinderblock home is ugly at all. I think it has it's own unique character :0).

Have a great day,

Even if your house is the ugly duckling, I doubt it will be for long!

Ashley said...

So - yea - I've been reading your blog for a while now and just realized you're from Alabama. Actually it went more like this: 'OMG! I can't believe this beautiful woman, with the beautiful house, in the beautiful neighborhood is from ALABAMA!!!' Don't you just love these older neighborhoods?!? Obviously! I'm in North Alabama ~ let me know if you're close!
