Going for a walk, with my friend, Sharon, is always a delight….she takes me to the best places!  The other day, we walked in the Millwood district in Spokane, Washington.  I was very surprised at the lovely homes to be found near the Mill (Paper).roofs 075

This home was a real treasure, as I was about to see….roofs 011

Notice the clay pot chimneys?

How about this garage?  Looks like the drawbridge should have a moat around it!  Look at those roof lines…I would never want to pay to have that replaced or do the work!

After this stunning start, we headed next door….

  1. Okay ... now I don't have to post my pictures. I'll just direct my folowers to your blog. Stinker ... you put them on first!

  2. Oh my goodness....... I love all these beautiful and unique homes. You are so fortunate to have a walk such as this.......I absolutely love/ love/ love..... walking past old homes such as this, but nothing quite like that here in Seguin...Texas.

    What's blooming with the pink flowers on the tree in one of the pictures?...

    I love these pictures!

  3. WOW...I have never seen so many styles of architecture in one neighborhood...don't you know those houses cost a pretty penny to build in that time and like you I can't imagine it cost to maintain them....I guess one of those times if you have to ask how much can't afford it...Going to go check out Sharon's blog now so she doesn't pout too long...

  4. Great architecture. They just don't build homes like that anymore!!
