Front Porch Fridays

April 16, 2010 at 6:15 am 7 comments

A new feature on this blog will be ‘Front Porch Fridays,’ a sampling of homes from throughout parts of St. Joe. (Or other places if we’re on the road … oooh, exciting.)

Today, we played creepy by driving down two of St. Joe’s most beautiful streets – Lovers Lane and Ashland Avenue. Matt drove as slowly as he could without annoying the other drivers, and I took photos out the window. Luckily, no cops were called.

Here are just a few of the architectural gems from this part of town:

I love this house that used to be a church - although it seems like too much pressure to live in a church.


This beautiful home is for sale!

My favorite house on Lovers Lane. Usually has beautiful huge wreaths on it too - must have caught them between a change out. 🙂

    I was wandering through quilt blogs this morning and stopped at yours – I love interesting architecture and old homes are so representational of American architure. I thought I recognized the homes in your photos and actually stopped to read your comments to discover that these homes are in my home town of St. Joseph – no wonder they looked familiar!

    That’s a good idea to make posts about your hometown area! I loved my visit to the St. Louis area last August.

    Hi Mallory…
    Thanks for coming by my blog! It’s cool to find people with similar interests so close by!

    I say next time, just get out and take pictures. If anyone says anything, tell them there house is beautiful, you’re taking architecture pics and would they like a copy? Most ppl wouldn’t mind a bit!

    (don’t tell them the internet part lol)

    Oh, we have the same favorite house! I looked at it and though, Oh I love that one! Love the idea of sharing porch ideas on Fridays! I will have to share mine and maybe link over. I work on Fridays, so I will have to get it done early. We’ll see…

    I really like your blog and will be visiting again 🙂
    Thx for commenting on my blog.
    That last, grey, house – is that Georgian style? – it’s gorgeous. The grey paintwork is perfect for it.
    Maybe I could photograph some nice old houses in England to show you…
