Half a Million Dollars

Half a million dollars is not much now days for a piece of real estate. But look what you can get in Maine, USA for under $500k

House #1

We have this beauty. With a heaps of fireplaces, loads of charm and a broad spacious 2 acres, who wouldnt want this home?
House #2

With lake frontage and oodles of charm, we have this gem. Water vista complete with little guest cottage!

House # 3

Please! Why cant we have many beautiful homes like this in Australia? Shame on us.

Now, bring you back to Australia....

For $500k in Inner Brisbane?

One of these town houses?


475 Sqm of land

I am sure you get the point!

I want my lake house to look and feel like its was born in Maine. It is decided!

Lonny Mag

Please, if there is only one thing you do this weekend it should be reading this Lonny Online Magazine!

What do I love about this elevation?
The different angled gables.
The timber edging around the gables
The square glass windows / doors
The porch
The three steps up to the porch
No so keen on the thatching, I would want to clean it all the time!

What I don't like?
Not suited to my block and overall vision on my block. Maybe next one :)

P.S. - Wait until you see the kitchen too! WOW. This feature starts on page 164. But it might take you a few hours to get to that page because there is SO much to see and drool over to get there!

Girl Crush

I have a serious girl crush on Leeann Thornton.

I have had these images in my LOVE file and never blogged about it. Don't know why, but maybe because everyone else was crazy blogging about her at the time.

Anyway. Her site is HERE and you will NOT be dissapointed.

Love blue and white

Must have a kitchen nook

Must have a fire place (not sure I would have those two stools there though - FIRE ALERT :)

This is a like raj meets hamptons - Love it!
