These Are The People In Your Neighborhood: Lovely World

I stumbled on the quietly charming blog, Lovely World, and found this delightful set of images from the home of the blogger's friend. With her permission, here's what she had to say about it:

"I visited one of my mother's friends last week. He is very much a homebody, and has lived in his large, brick Victorian house for decades. I couldn't help but notice that his home is a conglomeration of little vignettes. I especially love the castle that was drawn on the wallpaper above a dresser mirror and the little alligator hanging out on a window sill in the pantry."

Now I'm thinking: Where Shall I Draw a Castle!?

I love things like this and actually spend far too much time looking at it all. Maybe it's not too much time because it brings me so much pleasure and I have an awful lot of the other...

Thanks for the link!

Every house bursts with stories.

If I had any wallpaper left in the house I think I"d let my kids go to town on in with a handful of Sharpies.

My house is like this. Every surface an altar of sorts. Why not? Why the hell not?

Found you through Ms Moon. Thanks for sharing this. Was fun to visit your blog and then that blog. Happy day. ;-)

Cool.

I try to do this in my house too. I love it.

It's balancing the cute factor with the crap factor that I have a hard time with. I know that all of a sudden one day I'll be drowning in garbage!
