Even though I'm stuck up here in Massachusetts,
and it's snowing,
right now, this very minute, where I am.......
I thought I would show you guys the house that brought me down to Flerida.
My buddy, Connie, used to be my client.....
She figures if she moves, she'll be my client again.....
Let's hope she stays where she is.....
('cuz I'm lazy.....)
I was working on her house on the beach
(very often referred to as a beach house.....)
when I got it into my head, that I could have a home in Flerida too!!!!!
She's a big reason that I live down there in the cold months.
She and her husband Chris had bought a pink stucco shack on the water,
in order to get their hands on the land.
They took down the existing house, and built this cute little cottage.....
As you walk around the side of the house, towards the back.....
you pass the outdoor shower,
which you can see part of to the left of this shot....
It's a combination garbage can shed/shower booth!!!!!!
Straight ahead is the ocean, just over the dune.
Following the path all the way back, brings you to the deck overlooking the ocean.
Since I took this picture, in 2006, we've tweaked the deck.
Because I'm in Massachusetts.....
I can't run over to her house and reshoot some of these shots.....
When I get back to Flerida, I'll do that for you guys....
'cuz that's the type of conscientious and considerate blogger that I is!!!!!!!
Down at the other end of the deck are a couple of chaises.
I love this outdoor fabric, I think it's
However, because Connie and Chris live on the ocean,
where everything gets destroyed by wind sun and salt.....
the fabric has been replaced at least once.
Connie can't live with worn out stuff the way I can.
I just walk past it and don't even see it.
She paces around just looking for stuff to redo,
She claims she doesn't,
but she must!!!!!
Winding sand paths that lead from the deck to the waves are bedazzled with beach jewelry!!!!!
(TASTEFUL BEACH JEWELRY!!!!!)
(which I found on ebay.....)
We are always on the lookout for more highfalutin' items.....
As you continue around from the back towards the front.....
you come to the side pergola that connects the house to the garage.
And that's the outside of my buddy Connie's house!!!!!
See you guys in a couple of days.....
My writing schedule is really shot to #$% since I am on family patrol up here in the big old MA.
So on that note.
