>The Chambered Nautilus

>Is there a house that you just love to gawk at in your neighborhood? There are actually several in our coastal town!  I drive by The Chambered Nautilus quite often while doing my weekly errands and I finally stopped and took a few snapshots to share.  The weather was a bit misty so the pictures aren’t as clear as I’d like, sorry. I did have some fun by using new textures which are available on Picnik – I think it gives them a vintage look.

The red front door, manicured green lawn and pure white picket fence add the perfect charm to this historic beach home; which just happens to be located a few hundred feet from the town’s main beach approach.

I’d love to be able to see what’s inside someday! I wonder how they got all their curtains draped exactly the same?!?!

Weathered shingles grace this classic seaside home and its guest house.

Even the home’s sign is delightful!

I’m kind of on a nautilus shell kick lately and was thrilled when I found these ornaments from our coastal partner, The Seashell Collection! Aren’t they beautiful??
