I spent the day yesterday, going to the grocery store. Most of my readers know that my husband and I spend the summers in a tiny mountain town, sixty miles to the nearest supermarket. I am having a bridal luncheon  on Friday for a friend's daughter, so I needed to stock up. I really like the small town where I go to shop. It is larger than the little town we are in, but still considered small; around 5,000 people. They have such unusual homes there, no two alike. These were all on the same street.

A sweet little log cabin, with very tall pine trees in front.
A tiny little place, with lavendar and green trim, behind a white picket fence
A well cared for stone house with a history plaque saying it was built in 1881 for a local judge.

It had a small guest house in the backyard, which in reality back then was probably servants quarters.
On the opposite corner, stood this tall blue Victorian place. I decided I needed to get on with my shopping, so these are the only pictures I took. There are so many more. A very interesting little town, Gunnison, Colorado.


  1. Great variety for a small town. I think I like the stone house the best. I'd even settle for a stay in the guest house.

  2. Oh, I love the little stone cottage! Adorable!

  3. I love the little place with the lavender and green trim.

  4. wow, lovely variety and great looking places! hope you'll link to good fences if you like!

  5. It's hard to pick a favourite out of these!

  6. wow, that is a wide variety for sure! From the outside looking in, I'd rate the log cabin first. But all log walls inside can get to be a bit much, particularly in smaller cabins. ;)

  7. Dearest Janey,
    It is such a surprisingly beautiful area you are in. Lovely homes and thanks for taking the time to make these pictures!

  8. So nice collection. My absolute favourite is the first one :)
    Have a great weekend.

  9. I like that last one, so pretty with the blue colour. But there are al lot of different nice houses there.
