Ok maybe not pennies as those are gone but nickels…saving our nickels.
I feel like I’ve reached that stage in our rental apartment where everything is pretty much “done.” If this was my own home there would be so many more things that I would like to change, update, and beautify but that’s frankly just not going to happen in this humble little dwelling of ours. I would love to buy new dining chairs but really at this time, what’s the point? Saving up for a place is a bit more of a priority right now than buying my dream dining chairs. I’ll get my dream dining chairs when I get my dream home. By the way, in case you’re curious what my dream chairs look like…
Hello beautiful Eames Eiffel chairs…
For now I’ll just keep staring at this picture. And just on a side note, isn’t that a beautiful floor too?!
Every now and then I get this sense of urge to change something up in our apartment. Unfortunately the bookcase can only be arranged so many times and I only have enough walls for so many picture frames.
Maybe if I was working and making a lot of dollar bills I would be more tempted to buy things such as an area rug or a new ottoman but any dollar bills coming in are paying for tuition, car insurance, and food. That’s ok though, any time I am tempted to purchase something home decor related just to satisfy the decorator in me I just think about our dream home and I put it down. Being Mennonite helps with that too…we love to save, save, save! So, while we’re on the topic of dream homes I’m going to share with you a few different dream homes of mine (ours). Hopefully we will be living in one of these some day. I just gotta remember to put down that new toss pillow anytime I make a trip to West Elm or IKEA.
Nearly everyday the husband is on MLS checking out homes. We’ve looked at several areas and enjoy each one for different reasons. Everyday he falls in love with a new area. As for me, I don’t really care which area of Vancouver it is as long as it’s not the suburbs. Sorry suburbanites, I’m all city or all country and nothing in between. Right now, at this stage in my life I’m not ready for the country, so the city it is.
If you’ve read my bio, then you know that we live a block from the beach. Unfortunately the houses in this area are wayyy out of our price range and probably will be even in a few years when we finally decide to hunker down. A townhouse will be maybe somewhat more affordable in a few years but a condo won’t break the bank.
But I’m going to show you a dream home in this neighbourhood anyways because it’s good to aspire. Who knows, maybe we will win the lottery and hit the jackpot.
All these photos are from the realtors website. I’m not sourcing any of these photos for privacy so email me in case you really are interested in this gorgeous house and have $1.5 million to spend.
First of all, doesn’t this house have great curb appeal? She’s a beauty. I love the historic charm.
Leading into the kitchen. So glad they chose a blonde wood for the cabinets. I don’t know about you but I am sooo over, actually I was never into, the dark espresso cabinets. They scream the new millenium. Anyways, I’m so glad they kept that original brick structure too as it just adds to the charm.
So, if I had $1.5 million to spend this is something I would buy. What do you think? Would you buy the same if you had that sort of $$?
