This was the house of Giovanni Comisso (3 October 1895 – 1969) an Italian writer and is situated in Buranelli Canal, a complex of lovely old buildings on the river in the heart of Treviso city centre.

 

Born in Treviso, Comisso was an important Italian literary figure in the first half of the 20th century. Comisso wrote novels, stories, and reportages. A close friend of painter Filippo De Pisis, Comisso's account of their relationship provides a fascinating portrait of gay life in 1930s Paris.

The "Mushroom Houses" of Charlevoix, Michigan are an amazing collection of unique homes designed and built from 1918-1975, by self-taught architect Earl Young. The homes, also nicknamed "Gnome Homes", are constructed of local materials like limestone, boulders, and field stone, with cedar shake roofs. They are designed to blend into the landscape. Young built 26 of these homes, and four commercial buildings in Charlevoix.

 

This house, and other examples of Mushroom Houses, are on Park Street, built in a site with a view of Lake Michigan.

Wooden house for barbecue in the winter park. The city of Krasnogorsk, Moscow region.

Each time I travel Highway 395, I stop at this little house to see if it’s still standing. This year my thoughts turn to wondering about which of us will be the first to fall… this structure is tough. Probably like the Folks who built it.

You took my empty dreams

And filled them every one

With tenderness and nobleness,

April and the sun.

 

The old empty dreams

Where my thoughts would throng

Are far too full of happiness

To even hold a song.

 

Oh, the empty dreams were dim

And the empty dreams were wide,

They were sweet and shadowy houses

Where my thoughts could hide.

 

But you took my dreams away

And you made them all come true —

My thoughts have no place now to play,

And nothing now to do.

Sara Teasdale

  

These red cottages in Sweden, I can never renounce shooting them. They are all different, yet so similar. In Sweden are still living the dream of the little cottage in our hearts.

My Little House

by J. M. Westrup

I have a little house

With windows and a door,

Two chimneys on the top,

And a plot of grass before.

 

I have a little house,

With curtains and a blind,

Two chimneys on the top,

And a plot of grass behind.

 

I have a little house,

Where I go in and out,

Two chimneys on the top,

And a garden all about.

A typical village house. Village Nazimovo in the Tver region. In the village there are only 6 houses and only one resident. I came to this place to visit a friend of Natalia, she has a huge farm and two houses ... but after she has seen her husband, she has to sell it all.

Montacute House was built in about 1598 by Sir Edward Phelips, whose family had lived in the Montacute area since at least 1460, first as yeomen farmers before rising in status. The site was bought from the Cluniac Montacute Priory by Thomas Phelips and passed to his grandson, also called Thomas, who started planning the house, but died before it was built and left the completion.

Monticello, Arkansas. Built in 1906, the Allen House is located along North Main Street and features gothic-style architecture and wrought-iron fencing. The house was planned by local businessman Joe Lee Allen to be the most impressive house the town had ever seen. Unfortunately in December 1948 the family experienced a grave tragedy – their daughter, Ladell, consumed mercury cyanide-laced punch in the house’s master suite. Out of grief, her mother sealed off the room and it would not be entered by anyone for nearly four decades. During its time as an apartment building in the 1950s, tenants would report eerie occurrences, including hazy figures appearing in photographs, furniture being unexplainably rearranged and several reports of a lady sitting in a turret window. The Allen House is now open for historic guided tours by appointment and opens its doors the last two days of October for special Halloween tours.

Chastleton House was built between 1607 and 1612, for Walter Jones, who had made his fortune from the law,[2] although his family were originally Welsh wool merchants. The estate was bought in 1604 from Robert Catesby, although his residence was demolished to make way for the new house and no traces of the original building on this spot remain. The house is built of Cotswold stone, round a small courtyard, called the Dairy Court.

Chastleton House is famous for a scene from the Civil War where a loyal wife duped (and drugged) the Roundhead soldiers to save her husband. The anecdote shows the fundamentally domestic and peaceful world of England and the disorganization of war:

The Red House was once a popular Bakery & Confectionery shop at Katong. This bakery was a popular breakfast haunt among Singaporeans living in the eastern part of Singapore, especially for its signature cakes and curry puffs. It was established in 1925 and located at 75 East Coast Road. It was closed on 23 March 2003 after the shophouse where it was occupying was deemed as unsafe.

Today, the shophouse where the bakery once stood and the adjacent shophouses along the stretch of East Coast Road are being restored as a residential-retail-lifestyle heritage development. The Red House Project is slated to be completed by the second quarter of 2016, which includes a bakery and heritage gallery, with artefacts from the old bakery.

Situated on a hill overlooking the River Clyde, it is two kilometres (1.2 mi) north of the village of Milton and three kilometres (1.9 mi) east of the town of Dumbarton. The house, an example of Scottish Baronial architecture, was built in the 1860s, and was donated to the people of Dumbarton in 1938.

Tirilye is a town in Bursa Province, Mudanya, Turkey, situated 12 km (7.46 mi) west of Mudanya. It is a township along the Marmara Sea shoreline. The area, which was inhabited since the 5th century BC, was formerly known as Τρίγλεια, Trigleia or Βρύλλειον, Brylleion in Greek. When demand for the products of Southern Marmara from the ancient world increased, ports have been constructed in Kios (Gemlik), Kurşunlu, Apamea Myrlea(Mudanya), Siği (Kumyaka), and Trilye (Zeytinbağı) and the region boomed. The most important historical structure in Trilye(Triglia) is that of the Byzantine Haghioi Theodoroi Church, known today as the Fatih Mosque. Mudanya, a residential and commercial development in this township is under state protection as a historical site.

“Houses, housetops, like human beings have wonderful character. The lives of housetops. The wear of the seasons. The country is beautiful, young, growing things. The majesty of trees. The backs of tenement houses are living documents.”

Thank you all lovely friends for kindly and nice gratulations.

Back from our trip in Norway.

In the little village where we visited our friends, this beautiful house is located. Until 1960 there was a post office, where two unmarried sisters ruled, with unlimited power.

It was actually our hotel room, never felt so well!
