A Flower-Filled House in Detroit
Okay, this flower exhibit is just too beautiful for me not to share with you guys. Obviously, I'm pretty partial to old houses, but gorgeous old houses with flowers in them?! It's like a cross between my dreams and an Anthropologie catalog. Seriously, check it out:
This beautiful scene is from a preview day for an upcoming flower exhibit, which will take place at two abandoned old houses in Detroit. And lets just talk about the houses for a minute...can you believe the architecture?! Soaring ceilings, plaster walls, wood doors! All I can say is I want them, I love them, and oh how that potential gives me tingles! It doesn't seem right that there are such stately homes just sitting around abandoned and sold for $500! But apparently so it goes in Detroit.
Check out the flower exhibit mission here. The full show runs October 16-18th. I'd love to go, but we'll have a brand new baby and won't be traveling anywhere further than the couch. Are you in Detroit? Please go and send pictures!
The one sad note is that both of these houses will be demolished after the flower show. You can't win them all...but at least the architectural materials will be salvaged.
