Storybook Land


I don't think I've mentioned how much I've enjoyed searching out all the historic neighborhoods and cruising around them to see what I can find.  In amongst all those older homes that have been lovingly maintained, I've had the opportunity to find some rather quirky and down-right odd places too.  Here is a perfect example.  Remember that Idylwilde Park neighborhood I posted about last week?  It's the one with the hidden garden that runs behind all the homes.  I found this house in that neighborhood.  It appears that they have a bit of a storybook theme going on at this place.




There are all kinds of interesting things scattered about the front yard.  Here's an example.






























This shot taken from a different angle shows a little more of the interesting things decorating the yard.  In the top photo you might see a touch of red and white check in the bottom center of the photo.


As you can see in this close up view, it's a basket with the checked cloth inside and the statue of a goose in the basket.  Do you think that might be Mother Goose?

I see they have added even more since the last time I was by this place. I've been by to see this house many times because it's just so fascinating! They should sell tickets!

I really like this! I think you are right about that being Mother Goose.

When I see places like this I definitely want to meet the owners!

Unusual, Sharon. I have seen some "artwork" made from braided reeds . . . these owners have taken the style as their own.
