Sutton House Tour

Now I know that for most people a subdivision is just a normal thing to see in their town..But I live in a very small town north of Toronto. I live here for many being the lake and the other being that this is the country. Now admittedly I live in town now...if you can call Jackson's Point a town more like a hamlet. One block from Lake Simcoe with farmland all around.So when they said they where going to build a subdivision here like the ones in bigger urban centers..I kind of thought,,,ah yeah I don't think so. But since I have no say in matters such as this they went ahead...after many years of delay and started one not 5 min. from my house.
So today being saturday and them having the grand opening of their model homes...I conned,,ahem I  mean asked these 2 to come along as I had heard there was hot what teenage boys could resist that.

 It kind of freaks me out that they are as built up as they are but no different than any other subdivision...Funny but when I lived in Toronto on my 16 foot wide lot I thought these lots where enormous..haha.
 At first the boy and his friend where only interested in their phones and hand held gadgets...typical.
 This is the first model...there are only 2.  I think this would be like an office or something like that as it was right at the front door.
 I quite liked the kitchen..that had an eat in area.

 And I absolutely love this was very impressive. love the stove too.
 In the basement there was a fully contained this it where it got interesting.
 This is the boy telling me that he wants me to buy this house and he can live in the basement. haha fat chance.
 Yep they both had plans to live here..this is the small kitchen. I have to admit that I liked the basement like this too.
 This is the kitchen in the second house. I did not like it at all..I just dont like wood cupboards...I am a white girl all the way. The last 4 kitchens or so that I have put in have all been white.
 And except for these pictures above this bed I really didn't like any of this house..
They had a food station set up in the garage and after we where done we went to check it out.
I could not believe they had it catered.I wish I had got the name of the company or some pictures of the food. Hamburgers,,,that where awesome..sausage on a bun and chicken on a stick...all the salade you can eat and fresh fruit. It was truly awesome..
And even though I don't like the idea of this in my is far enough away from my house and from the lake to not be a big problem for me.
Just as long as they don't build the whole town up like this...cause if they do I am outta here.
No worries for a while yet as two girls showed up at the Tim Hortons on friday nite on their horses...
It is after all just a small town by the lake.
Till next time, Frances

Random spots from the weekend

Well I finally made it to the holy grail of blogland.
Sorry to say I didn't take any pictures of the inside.   I must say for this girl it was a bit over whelming..anything I could imagine was here..everything I can imagine is here,,,,and then some.
It was just too much...would need a whole day to spend there...but amazing all the same.

Got this suitcase for my upcoming trip.  I just love the colour.

Took a weekend trip to Wilson NY to visit these folks...Betty and Chuck.

Took Betty's daughter Carolyn with me...kept calling her "Hop a long" as she tore a muscle in her calf...not sure she thought that was funny...haha but i did.

I have a strict  no pictures of me policy...someone wasn't listening..  See behind me they used oars as a room divider..was actually kind of neat.
Had dinner Fri. night at this restaurant in Olcott  Beach...The Lighthouse...We all had the fish being Friday and all. Wish I had taken a pic of it...the fish was bigger than the plate ...and so good. I can not believe how big the fish servings are in the states..its 4 times the size of the ones here in Canada and costs half the price.

This is down by Lake is very beautiful this side of the Canada it is all built up with citys..not as nice a here where it is dotted with small towns.

This store was closed and I took this picture from the window ...will have to come back for sure.
Then it was off to the Sally Anne for some serious shopping.

Why oh why did I not get these dishes...3.00...again I say WHY?

 this would look good with a coat of paint.

I was shadowing betty taking random shots of her...haha

She bought these mugs for her hot chocolate...she only looks mad cause people in the store where looking wondering why I was taking pictures...You should of seen her face when I said I was putting them on my blog....haha

And here is what I bought for .59  Now why I would want American themed christmas ornaments is a mystery even to me....but I do love all things American ...even though I am Scottish born and living in Canada...go figure.
All in all a good time was the good old U S of A.
Till next time, Frances
