My Daily Walk

My workshop is on Main Street, just around the corner from my house.  I walk 95% of the time and it takes me just four minutes.

I leave my front door, head up my driveway and turn left.

There are two houses until the corner at Main Street.  This house is to the left on the corner:

and this house is to the right:

(I've been told that the house above was completely run down a few years ago and was bought by someone for a very low price and then renovated.  I have not met the owner, but would love a look inside)

I turn right at the corner and pass two houses and then beside those there is this beautiful green house. It was built many years ago and lived in by a dentist who had his office in the small attached part on the right. You will see it better in the second photo.  Isn't that small additional space amazing!

Directly across the street from this house is a dilapidated house.  I have heard someone might be fixing it up, I sure hope so because I love the old houses and hate to see them torn down.

Beside the nice green house is another small house and then a store that sells car parts.  Beside that as I keep going is "The Friendship Garden."

It has much more colour in the middle of summer, but it's a nice quiet spot and right beside my workshop, the blue house you can see in the background.

Now wouldn't it be nice to put my shop name on the side of the house? Or a painting of a lighthouse, a mermaid or something else?

Perhaps someday you will come and visit beautiful Prince Edward Island and drop by my workshop!


  1. What gorgeous houses!! I hope someone fixes up that poor run down place, I love old houses.

    Your sign would look amazing there. Happy Monday!!

  2. That is a great locatioin, and I agree that a sign there would be perfect. Will you have to keep regular hours when the shop opens?

    The dentist's house is great too. Now that would be a short walk to work!

  3. Oh what a neighborhood you ended up in Julie - just gorgeous - looks so much like the settings from Anne of Green Gables ( no surprise the books take place there ! ) LOVE those houses and you know how much I love your shop - YES - a sign should go on the side !!! Thanks for letting me know about this post - I love seeing old homes -
    No go befriend everyone so you can take photos of the inside too LOL
    We went on a picnic today and I took photos of old summer homes :)

  4. Thanks for the tour of the neighborhood! That little space next to your shop is nice.
    I love all the old houses too!

  5. that is one seriously charming commute! No wonder you wanted to live there.
    While I can beat you on travel time (10 seconds MAX to my garage) the journey isn't even remotely as pleasant.
    And yes to a sign! That would be perfect.

  6. It would take me forever to get to work each day if I lived there! Too much eye candy, I would be late every day! You do beautiful work! Please come and share! I would love it if you would join in on my Making Broken Beautiful party! It starts 6:00pm (MST) this Thursday September 10 and I would love to have you join up each week!
    Smiles for a great week!

  7. Beautiful houses, and what a beautiful walk to your work house..
