Let's Take A Drive Through DeLand!

This is where I spent the last 2 weeks. In DeLand Florida, my husband grew up here and his Mom and I drove around to get pictures for all of you to see. She grew up here too but she still enjoys taking a drive and looking at all the beautiful old houses here, thank goodness or else she would have hated this!LOL. DeLand has tons of lovely old houses so this is only a few and I hope you enjoy your visit, I know I did. Thanks for the fun day Kitty!
The Volusia County Courthouse.

This is a cute antique store we went to, they had lots of goodies in here!


Look at this sweet bakery, it is in downtown DeLand.



This house is one of my mother-in-laws favorites. It looks so stately sitting there on the hill.










Look at the gingerbread woodwork on this house. I love it!!






DeLand has such pretty tree lined streets.
















I really want this little pink cottage!

I just love driving around looking at cute houses. There is so much cookie cutter mcmansions around here I love to head out to the older neighborhoods. You just can't beat a cute house!! :0)

That bakery is adorable, sweet rose chick! What a neat idea to photograph your town. Maybe I'll do that also. Not too many people are familiar with Idaho. Welcome back, sweetpea.
Smoochies,

Those homes are to die for! You just don't see too many homes like that here in California anymore! My favorite is the house on the hill. Gorgeous!
