I live in a pretty incredible area - in Montreal, It's an historical neighbourhood loaded with tons and tons of charm - and 20th century architecture, just steps away from the city center, it's also a pretty expensive neighbourhood ( in which I live in servants quarters basically compared to what I'm surrounded by )Because there are days I don't have furniture makeovers to show you - I've chosen Wednesdays to showcase and feature one or two homes that are for sale around here.................( or apartment - or duplex - or teepee )
Keep in mind this is in the heart of the city - so the prices reflect that - think Manhattan - where these places would cost 3 or 4 times what they're listed for here!
On occasion I'll showcase beautiful homes in other areas - countries - continents - the one thing most of them will have have in common will be their age - because I love old homes with stories to tell, join me won't you
Happy " hump " day everyone - the first one in APRIL - it was soooo cold and windy here yesterday that I've just
about given up on Spring even coming this year..................we get a few days of real promise and then WHAM the cold comes right back - I find myself constantly watching the weather network lately as closely as if if were Downton Abbey. I mean it HAS to come, ( doesn't it? ) Those beautiful warm Spring days filled with promise of summer just around the corner? I see photos of it all around Bloglandia so I know it's there, somewhere - it just
seems to have lost it's way this year in Montreal.
Ok - Hump day means House day - ( I just crawled out of bed at 4.30 in the morning because I had totally forgotten about it - give me a long weekend - and I end up as lost as Spring )
It's too cold to house hunt in Montreal today - we're heading down to Florida -
Need me some ocean this week - and believe me - this one was worth getting up early for!

I had 2 other listings to show - but deleted them - it just wasn't fair to them......................
I would bow down on my hands and knees every single time I came " home " to this place - this must be as near perfect as any home on the planet can be
Do you see why I had to delete the other 2 listings now?
Looking for that lost shaker of salt?
I can't quite absorb the beauty of this house - I mean I'm trying to - I really am - but it's just too big for me
I keep coming back and staring and staring and staring and staring and staring and staring....................
and if I didn't have to finish April's dining room set - I may have just sat here and stared all day long.
How can you take all this in at just a glance
The ceiling - the windows - the dining room set - the floor
and he's buying me a stairway to heaven..................
John - I don't understand why you never come out of your office anymore......................
Ceiling love - fireplace love - window love -
the bathroom is probably the square footage of my home
wasting away again in
OK - I know money can't buy everything - it can't buy health - and it can't buy happiness - I KNOW that -
but it could sure buy me a hell of a lot of contentment................
And I'd like to try it - just for awhile - to see if it " fits " - for ummmm - say, a decade or two...............
Have a happy Wednesday everyone - dream big..................
