Moving on up

Not me. I'm not moving. But someone is. And I couldn't be happier.
I can't imagine that wherever these folks are moving to will be any worse off than where they are now. However, anything is possible... Who knows - maybe they're moving to Woodbrook (that'd be the hood if Tillicum's the 'good')

Just behind this moving sale sign are the Wooddale Cottages.... Complete with barbed wire (gated community... to keep people out? or to keep people in?) and the remains of a demolished one room 'home'.

Cottage? Last time I checked, THIS (see below) was a cottage. (At least the kind of cottage my heart longs for!) ~


  1. Update: Thanks to some info from the President of the Tillicum/Woodbrook Neighborhood Association (my dad, hee-hee)... These "Cottages" have been purchased by Habitat For Humanity - a recent grant won by THOUSANDS of online voters! Yay!

  2. I want to live in that cottage. LET'S GO!

  3. I just want to say I really love what you are doing here. I like the view into tillicum and the way you can spin it to make me wonder... why the "fenced community" By the way, you should start knocking out number 24 on your list. You can rent Cello's from Ted Brown for a reasonable rate, I did it about 6 years ago and they offer lessons too.

  4. Oh. And I wanted to point out how hilarious it is that this moving sign was written on a torn file folder... haha. I love it.

  5. I really like that cottage too.

  6. That cottage is cute. Had to read it twice because I thought you were knocking the cottage in the second picture, then I got it.
    Your list on the left is interesting to read.


Thanks for stopping by!!
