I am going to build myself a house one day - American style!

It is going to have shingles and stone and turrets and nooks and crannies and will look like a gingerbread cottage. I have even had this little dolls house that I bought years ago and always had in my bedroom as a reminder of that dream... I finally put it in my daughter's bedroom....



I am drawn to them and now I have saved a whole bunch of them on my Pinterest for you all to share but check out some of my favourites below.















Actually I know that I would have to either win the lottery.... marry a rich man... rob a bank or all three to be able to afford some of these gob smacking homes but  I can dream and maybe use bits of them in my one day home. Though I must say that the maintenance looks pretty high.... but it could be worth it!

  3. Such beautiful homes and I think you are right...gleaning the ideas and the feel of those homes and adapting it to your own is truly a wonderful way to go! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Inspiration Friday!

  4. Gorgeous! Okay, I must buy a power ball ticket now! ;)

    Seriously, I love looking at beautiful homes too and walking away with inspiration for what I love and what can be a "real project" in my own home.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Gina!
