Hi Girlies and Happy Monday!
I promised to post these pix several weeks ago, but time got away from me.... yes, again.... ;-D
I've been working away on my bathroom... why does everything take about 2,079 times longer than you predict?
It's coming along nicely though and I can't wait to show y'all...
My mother-in-law told me that these little cottages were built by the missionaries from England... my brother-in-law said they were built by the missionaries from New England... Hmmm... Not sure, but they are the sweetest little houses ever, aren't they?
We haven't taken a drive up to Diamond Head in a long time, but took a little detour so I could take some pictures for you... They're taken with my iTouch so the quality isn't great, but you'll get the idea....
They're designated historic homes, but I didn't get out to read the little plaques, hence the questionable facts.
Part of our pre-marriage agreement was that I'd never have to move to Hawaii... I love to visit.. it's just beautiful, but the heat gets to me after awhile and I love the seasons here in beautiful and equally green Washington. And, besides that, I'd miss my family.
But..........if I could live in one of these little beauties, I might just make the move!
Look at Diamond Head, right behind it and it looks like roses behind the fence, but it's actually hibiscus.... This is the one I'd choose.
So homey... I think this one looks the most Hawaiian in design.... The shape of the roof... but it has a little red, English post box. It looks so cozy to me.
I had to get a picture of this adorable thatched roof, even if I couldn't see the house........so quaint, isn't it?
Well, off to get some blood work and home to finish up the bathroom. So many tiny details have taken up lots of extra time.
My hubby and I have decided this will be our last undertaking this large (and it really wasn't THAT big)... we're going to have to have these things done from now on.... We're OLD and TIRED. :-D
Have a great week Chickies!
