Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane and currently curated by Francesca, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. If you'd like to join in, please leave a link to your Corner View post in the comments at www.fuoriborgo.com, and be sure to visit other participants, too.
This is my dream house. It's bigger than I would ever need, but doesn't it have great bones? (And I've always wanted a courtyard!)
It's in a great location - about two blocks from the center of the section of town known as "Little Saigon" and, thus, within walking distance of a myriad of Asian restaurants and a fabulous Asian market. It is also within walking distance of several lakeside parks and the Vajrapani Buddhist Center, where I take meditation classes.
As you can see, it is in serious disrepair. However, there is a ladder and a shop vacuum in the courtyard area and there are now cars in the driveway when I go past on Sundays. I hope that this is evidence that someone is renovating the place.
If it were mine, I would install flower boxes, add a picket fence with jasmine, put some climbing roses on the walls... well, maybe you get the idea from my bad artwork below...
