Hip Hip Hooray! It's time for Pink Saturday! This polka pink party is hosted by our wonderful Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound. Be sure to pinky charm your way to her place and see who else is parading their Pink today!
The first suburb of our metropolis city is not to far from here and the homes there are absolutely magnificent. Here is just one example of the beauty that is there. This is the Charles C. Haskin Victorian Residence. Circa 1894. (Photo by Martin) Isn't it absolutely gorgeous?! What a gift to be able to sit on that porch on a warm summer's evening while sipping sweet lemonade.
Most of the homes on this one avenue have been lovingly refurbished and restored to their original grandeur. In fact, for you handy dandy DIYers, one of the stately Victorians came on the market, a fixer upper even. Listing price was over $1,000,000. Pshaw, pocket change, LOL! Can you just imagine the stories this grand old lady could share?! The secrets, the scandals, and all the wonderful memories in between. It's been my lifelong dream to actually own (keep) a home such as this, sigh*** Til then (cough!), we take drives around our fair metropolis and make that left down this wonderful Avenue...where one can think and imagine fine ladies with parasols, almost hear the clippity clop of the horses hooves as they pull the gleaming carriages, and remember that bygone era...
Thanks for spending a bit of your Saturday with me. I hope you'll let me know you were here!

(fyi, Please forgive me if I am unable to get to your post. I've actually been recovering from surgery and my "sitting" time at the computer has been very limited. Thanks for understanding)
