"All through the long winter, I dream of my garden. On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth. I can feel it's energy, and my spirits soar." ...Helen Hayes


Yesterday we took a drive over by the old Cigar Factory and came across this. Does anyone know WHAT THIS IS??! Seriously, it looks like part of a lovely old house got sawed in half, or actually less than half, and then just left standing there. LOL  Does anyone local know what this is and why it is there?

also saw these sights:
a big beautiful old fashioned home. Love the haint blue porch ceiling and the way they painted the foundation red.
Very elegant!
more historic homes
somebody at this one rides a red bike!
love all those ceiling fans! Perfect for the balmy Carolina summer!

check out this pink and black one!

Later on, while on our walk, we saw this home all decked out for spring! Very cheerful!

This house reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream!

and I especially love this sweet little green and white cottage!

What are signs of spring your way?


  1. Happy Spring. I love these homes you have shared. The pink one reminds me of Pepto Bismol! I would love any of these homes IF someone else paid to paint them! That is really a mystery about the 1/4 house!!!
    Enjoy your day.

  2. Happy Spring!! What a great bunch of houses! The sawed off house is so fun, I wonder why it's that way?
    Thanks for visiting! Yes my dogs are Italian Greyhounds, I have five and adore the breed. The average 16 pounds, are sweet, gentle, pretty quiet, very shy, most of them are prissy.. I call them the cats of the dog world :-)

  3. ha google knew who I was after all, it was being goofy :-)

  4. Oh my goodness, those houses are beautiful. I just love the south!! Maybe that teeny tiny is house is where the kids wait for the bus. Just kidding...who knows. :)
