Do you live in a particularly pretty neighbourhood, where
window framed, 'still life' petals, scent the morning breeze?
Unionville, where my sister lives, is such a place, where picture
perfect houses seem like they've popped out of playful fairy tales.
Other abodes, appear to have multiplied in size,
from their mini, dollhouse dimensions,
to square footage fit for human lives!
Friends and family know about
my obsession with amazing architecture.
I sometimes forget that not everyone shares this sense
of wonder, admiration and respect for 'buildings'.
In fact, they often have fun with my enthusiasm for this art form by performing little sketches, spoofing my excitement over porticos,
wrap around porches, and other 'Poppy Passions',
like those of the interior design and decor kind!
Unrelenting, I continue with my observations:
'Brick, stucco, wood, and stone are materials that co ordinate well
together, creating interesting complements to each other.', I assert.
The house above can be found in the little village of Brooklin, Ontario.
Isn't it the epitome of whimsy and architectural flair?
And, if this isn't enough to make you sigh, surely
the sound of the brook, (hence the name of the place),
situated directly below it, does. How enchanting!
I leave you with another Brooklin beauty,
characterized by a lovely blend of styles and materials.
And so, off I go,
to dream about this hamlet's leafy lanes,
its heritage homes, and historical bones,
where, a part of my own heart, still remains.
I'm curious...which is your favourite?
Thanks for visiting!
