(Sorry for the quickie. I’ve got a lot going on today, so I am afraid this is the best I could do. At least the subject is wonderful, even if the post is lacking!)

Jody Brown (Architect who writes for Houzz) put together the very clever photos and captions that follow. He writes:

“Great architecture speaks . . . And sometimes it doesn’t take itself so seriously. If structure ever met vocal — and had a sense of humor — these might be the results.”

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. I would love if houses could talk. I would also love to live in a castle that constantly evolved, the hallways changing, new secret passageways appearing and disappearing!

  2. My parents are architecture nuts, I’ve been to over a dozen FLW houses – definitely interesting to know what any of them could say!

  3. Wonderful post, not lacking. But I don’t think I would want to know what my house would say. (“How can you shame me like this? Aren’t you ever going to paint the baseboards? What were you thinking when you picked that color for the living room walls?)
