View Full Version : Show me your house



Dorothy

Yep, that's what I want to see. Show me your front yard, your backyard, your computer desk, your kitchen, show me where you keep your disney stuff, where you park your car. Take me (and well everyone else too) on a tour of your castle and it's gardens.

However, for the sake of safety please make sure that we can't see your street name or house number. Make sure if your car is in the picture that the plate number isn't showing and of course as always let's keep it Disney friendly :yes:

Here's the front of my house during a blizzard

And as soon as it stops raining I will go do that same shot for you to see it during the summer, so stayed tuned to this....... well you know :lol:

http://wdisneysecrets.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=394&stc=1&d=1218052052


and the rest of the room - it's very small but we just about fit in it! the photos have come out dark - sorry 'bout that...

07-08-2008, 03:12 PM
OMG Terry, your house is beautiful. The snowy picture is fantastic. It would be my dream home too!

Ooh any pics of the inside (only asking what everyone else is thinking - bet we are all dying to see) :D

Slowhand
07-08-2008, 03:12 PM
Me too and can I have the "tart" room :lol:
Let`s have it correct Dorothy...it`s the "Tart`s Parlour" to which you are referring! :lol:

Johnie
07-08-2008, 03:13 PM
oohhh it sounds so swanky :p

Beccaberry

OOOH!!! Even better!! Now I can use that phrase I always fancied....

"Come into my parlour said the spider to the fly...."

Okay, but I called first dibs, although it's probably big enough for the three of us and from what I hear Terry makes one heck of good butler :D

Thanks for those kind words Debbie.
Sadly the only inside shots I have are when we had visitors or a party etc.etc., I must get round to taking some photographs devoid of people one of these days! :p015:

Debbie2
07-08-2008, 03:19 PM
No worries. I can imagine it is full of character and lots of quirky nooks and crannies. I love the property programmes on TV but your home is something else.

Ever thought of using that photo for personalised Xmas cards :)

What beautiful houses. Dorothy i am so jealous, you have my dream home. I will have to take some of my rabbit hutch and then i will post. Of course i am sure when dh lets me have my new kitchen (hint, hint dh, stop reading over my shoulder) then i will post that on here.
I watched a programme on dream homes in Miami last night, if only. One of them had my dishwasher that i want. I paused the tv so dh could get a really good luck :lol:

What beautiful houses. Dorothy i am so jealous, you have my dream home.

Honey, my house is so not anythings special. It's a very typical middle of the road midwest house that is showing the wear and tear of almost 30 years of raising a family and assorted pets in it.

Besides, a house is just where you hang your hat, but a home is where the love is and that my friend can't be measured in size or style or anything else.

Thanks Lisa.
We're not sure quite how old the cottage is - somewhere between 200 and 400 years old. It's not listed though which is a bonus.
These were taken a couple of years ago now and we've done quite a bit of work to it since.
