House Love in "New Neighborhood" in Empire, Michigan






A planned community ... nestled in the hills near Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes.



In January of this year, my sisters and I were able to go up to the Traverse City area ...


We stumbled into this new little neighborhood full of cute houses to love.


It was so flippin' cold, I took pictures out the window for you.


There is some reflection on the windows but for the most part,


they're good!  And you should LOVE THEM!  








I love the metal-roof porches on this, it was a 'town hall' of sorts for the little neighborhood.







 A farmhouse-design that is made to look like an addition was added.  Pretty cute!  






The unusual trim colors on a classic design catch your eye... 






Oh, yes, I loved this one, ORANGE!  One of my favorite colors! 










So colorful! 







There were piles of snow everywhere...





















This one looked so cozy...









I loved the fish above the door...









Can you imagine this one, all decorated for Christmas?  









This was a barn red ... 











Hope you enjoyed looking at the new houses that are similar to the days of old...

I hope to get back to blogging on a more regular basis and this is my 'comeback' post!

Love, 
Joni
