Everything changes.

It's been a while.
I'm still a fan of modernist houses, I just don't get out and photograph them like I used to. 
There's been lot's of changes in my area.  So many houses have been knocked down to make way for townhouses, McMansions and various other dwellings that don't have the same aesthetic as the old homes they have replaced.
Some houses that I featured on the blog many years back have hit the market and have been saved from the wrecking ball. some have had sympathetic renovations whilst lots have had a heavy dash of white paint and grey tiles slapped on.

This cute little house in Carroll Ave, Croydon, last went on the market in 2010.
 You can view the full listing here.
Whilst it's lost some of it's warmth from the internal timber, it has been saved from demolition and may appeal to a young family. And I quite like the undercover entertaining space.

Holidaying in Whangerei, New Zealand

I was lucky enough to have a week long break in the North Island of New Zealand at the start of December. As well as being a beautiful place, the houses were gorgeous! There wasn't a street that wasn't filled with cute, mod beach houses or low line farmhouses. I didn't get to take as many photos as I would have liked, but here's some of what I saw.

Pinky & Kitty support Movember

The girls are getting behind the mad month of fuzzy faces and itchy top lips. Pester your bloke to make an appointment with his doctor, or sponsor someone partaking in facial manscaping for the month on November.

Croydon South homes for sale.

Whilst doing my weekly trawl through the real estate website, I stumbled across some rather nice houses in the Croydon South area. This is a neighboring suburb to me.
  • Blue Mist Drive. Cute weatherboard with a feature chimney and a lovely retro kitchen that looks like an original.

  • Longview Rd. Red brick split level house with cathedral ceilings. lots of timber and a fantastic swimming pool with cabana. And look at those mosaic tiles in the bathroom *swoon*

  • Mimosa Court. This house is my favourite. If we weren't in the midst of renovating and landscaping our own house, I would try to convince the mister to sell our house so that we could buy this one. I love everything about it (except maybe the curtains, but that's fixable.)I think it will be snapped up rather quickly. I can imagine it furnished with some lovely 60's furniture and fittings or contemporary pieces and large modern artworks. And oh, what I could do with that garden.......

Callum View

I stumbled across this gorgeous time capsule house in Heathmont last month. I love everything about it, from the scrolly house name to the painted wall flower to the immaculate front garden.
