The temperatures are dipping a bit today and Mr Tennis and I decided to pack up the Bostons and make the short drive to Old Town Orange and get a close up view of some of the lovely historical bungalows that line the streets.
Why don't you come with us?
Who can resist this old garage door? I'm glad they kept it after putting in a modern door.
Attention hog, Sadie.
Don't you just love this curved room with the windows on this house?
I don't know all the architectural terms, but I know what I like and I like these old Craftsman Bungalows.
Most are a hundred years or older and bear plaques stating their "birth dates".
Hard for me to resist a stoop with a lovely feline...
This was the era of front porches - of all sizes.
And fancy balustrades.
These people are ready for Halloween, look at the bats inside the door!
They celebrate the milestones of these lovely houses.
Wide overhangs and lots of wood.
Angles and curves.
And again, those lovely porches.
Love this wreath!
As I said, angles galore.
Beautiful and unique front doors.
And yes, again, those porches.
Looks like Halloween is a big event at this home.
And, not so simply elegant.
Large shaded areas to lounge in the summer.
Yes, the sky was this glorious blue today!
A pretty arbor over the driveway.
I really want a yellow house, one day.
With a unique old wooden front door.
Please ignore the shadow monster, just part of the Halloween decor.
Another great door.
And we've come full circle back to the yellow barn door.
Thanks for joining us on our walk!
