david taylor has a great photo collection of victorian houses in the united states, along with an incredible knowledge of the history behind the different styles. aaaaah dream houses, i tell you.

my favourite thing about the karoo isn’t the wide open spaces or the lack of people or the lamb or the way it feels in winter (though all those are unimaginably good) – but the buildings. oh, those little houses.
i know i usually feature fancy looking wood & glass masterpieces, but i’d really just like a pretty little house, possibly with a garden (or a courtyard, or a verandah – or all three) that’s close to town so that i can walk everywhere.
