Oh, you know me, Julia! I love Victorians… Aren’t they extremely charming?! What about that front porch, huh?!

Have a lovely week, Julia.

Julia, When checking out some of the homes featured here I often see this comment: “I know this may be outdated but I like /love it anyway…” My question is”Who made other so called experts the ones to follow?Our homes should reflect us and be comfy and welcoming! I don’t personally know a lot of people whose homes are “picture perfect” down to every last stick of furniture! I love my house and get compliments ALL the time but we are neither rich or concerned about what is in! Who cares?I appreciate that you express liking what YOU like! I love looking at the houses! thanks so much!

I love lookig at the homes of your readers…real people. I have not seen a single one that I don’t like. The rich and famous certainly have what we may dream of, and it is sure fun to look at them, but every day readers also live very, very beautifully!

I especially love Jill’s Victorian…old houses get me every time! I’m curious though about that last pic in the listing…where did the sheep and deer come from?!?

Brenda Kula August 28, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Salivating over those Victorian houses for sure!

Hi Julia,I’m so happy I found you site. We have moved 11 times in 43 years of marriage. Why???? I love homes.!!! I love,just love to decorate them to my liking, and all of a sudden I need to move again. Now I’m not going anywhere. I found you and I’m just going to enjoy myself without moving from my chair. However if I had to move again it would be into house number 1. Thank you for you passion.

Hi Julia,

I can’t wait to catch up, the weather has been so nice I’ve had readers block….lol
We are stuck inside today Hurricane Irene is barking at our door, but thank God we have lights and we’re safe and sound…..I just finished a book by Mary Kay Andrews, Summer Rental, what a good read.. My neighbor just lent me a book called Maine, love Maine so I can’t wait to read it…..

I hope you and your family are all doing well….your .kids must be getting ready to head back to school…..I can’t believe summer is coming to an end :(

Looking forward as always, to your posts…..

All the best,
Kathy :)

Thanks Julia for posting my house, the blue Victorian!!!! (Jean not Jill :) The deer is real, often times Mama’s and their babies. The “sheep” is actually a propane tank, no longer there as we put in a new furnace and moved the tank. My town is Ouray Colorado and I would HIGHLY recommend it for a great vacation spot in SW Colorado. Again, thanks for the post Julia. I too love looking at your readers homes, dreaming of living in all 50 states (and Italy!) as I love to explore new territories.

Oops! That probably means I mislabeled Jill’s house as Jean’s on one of these posts. I corrected it–thanks. :-)

Kim August 28, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Thankyou for sharing all of these houses with us. My favorite was the blue victorian.

Dean August 28, 2011 at 10:30 pm

Another great selection of reader’s homes!
I LOVE what they did with the interiors in Elizabeth’s cape in RI. A great mix of traditional exterior and more modern/updated interior. Two thumbs up! :-)

Elizabeth August 29, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Thanks Dean! That’s just what we were going for. Had to pull off the vinyl siding and replace the fixtures and landscaping outside but we think it was worth it for that classic ‘New England’ look.

C. Joy August 28, 2011 at 10:31 pm

Just found your wonderful blog. How fun – house porn. Now when I should be working this is where people will find me. Thanks.

Nathan August 28, 2011 at 10:56 pm

I think I love #4 most. Beautiful.

Autumn VanWeir August 29, 2011 at 9:16 am

That 1st house, B&B, is so charming I may die.

kathy August 29, 2011 at 11:51 am

They’re ALL really nice! Love the yard in the last one. Each home is very different but lovely. I hope they get their asking price.


Martha August 29, 2011 at 4:21 pm

Thanks, Kathy!

Elizabeth August 29, 2011 at 2:41 pm

Thanks Julia! I just love your site and all the great houses on here!

Martha August 29, 2011 at 4:20 pm

Julia: Thanks so much for featuring our house!

Sabrina August 30, 2011 at 8:48 pm

I love, love, love your house Martha!! We live only about an hour and a half from the Scranton area, in a house that was also built in 1870, I can only dream of having our house look as nice as yours one day!! just beautiful!

Linn Stevenson August 30, 2011 at 12:22 pm

Julia: Thanks so much for featuring our home in New Hampshire.

Juju at Tales of Whimsy... August 30, 2011 at 3:30 pm

The first one makes me think of the gorgeous Victorian on Charmed.

Brandon August 31, 2011 at 8:22 am

What a nice site! These houses all look great, but I have to say I prefer the 1870 home in Pennsylvania. Even though the upkeep can be tough!

Elizabeth November 2, 2011 at 6:05 am

We finally sold our house in Rhode Island. Our house remained in the top five-ten most popular listings in our zip code for the entire length of the listing, unheard of!
I think we owe some thanks to your readers for keeping us on page one of trulia and hundreds of hits on zillow. Thanks again Julia!

That’s great! Congratulations, Elizabeth!
