Ranch/Rambler Homes

 Ranch Homes/ Rambler A Ranch Style home is an American original. Originating in the 1920’s with the post war boom of the middle class, this architectural style home fused modernist ideas with the American Western period of wide open spaces to create a casual lifestyle. One story living with a long low pitch roof and deep overhanging eaves. The roof line was primarily cross gabled, single gable or hip. The home itself was either rectangular, L or U Shaped. Many had an attached garage, others none at all. The floor plan was simple with the living area separate from the bedrooms.

This kitchen is almost perfect to me. The Gothic touches make me feel a bit Holier somehow. The dark paneled refrigerator doors and the banquet. It's really is a small kitchen too but feel so regal. I wish I was a princess. 

My husband loves this salad and I think I know why. It's got so much protein in it. Doesn't it drive you crazy when you and your hubby diet at the same time and while you snack on wheat thins and stick of cheese he devours something like this and still loses more weight than you? Pisses me off too. Then he adds BLUE CHEESE to it!?!?! Make it this weekend and smother some of that awesome, smelly cheese and take a damn bite. MMMMMM.....

Personally I'm a bit pissed summer is about over. I love the water and the sun and the boat and the hot sand on my feet and hanging outside. I wish I had an outside space a bit like this to drink one of those soda pops from too.

I so want PURPLE CHINA! 

Need to pitch a moldy picture in my entry hall and thinking I might try my hand at something like this? What you think?

Happy Favorites! What are yours this week?

  1. I'm not usually one for modern art, but that painting is beautiful. I love the dots and colors and streaks! I'm sad that summer is over, too. Everyone fusses about how excited they are for fall and I always think to myself, "Why?"
