Sweet Escape: Little Glass Houses For You And For Me

Another super busy week has come and gone! Eek, how time flies! I am always SO READY for my escape on Fridays! So for today, in my dream world I am escaping to a little glass house. Is that a fairytale or what? I’d sit out there every morning, sipping my coffee, feet up on a footstool. BLISS! Ok, who am I fooling with the “every morning” thing. I could LIVE in this house ALL DAY. Who needs a main residence if you have something this adorable in your backyard?

Have a beautiful and relaxing weekend, dear friends!

Oh, and if you have a chance, do a drive by for us so we can see all the loveliness in your world!

    Oh my goodness. That is the epitome of total bliss. You and I are feeling the same groove.

    I’ll have my coffee strong and black. And, maybe a croissant and fresh blackberries.

    Is there anything I can get for you? Maybe you would like a chocolate croissant.

    I saw this in the magazine yesterday. I was standing in the middle of GagMart and I said OUT LOUD….”Omigosh, I could live in this thing.” It could be my own biosphere!

    Love it, love it, love it.

    Have a fabulous weekend.
    Sandy :)

  5. Kathleen Grace

    Oh goodness, I love this glass house! I have been wanting one of those made of old windows and architectural salvage forever. Maybe someday…:>)

    now how did you get around my security gates, to take a picture of my back yard.
    tee hee.
    i wish!!

  7. teresa

    That is just about one of the most fabulous little pool houses I’ve ever seen- Thanks for sharing-
    I will have to store that picture away in my wish book :}
    Have a great weekend-

  8. Lara

    Oh wow, this is Heavenly! Where can I get one!? This is the most amazing retreat ever.

  9. Stephanie

    I’m so glad you commented on my give away earlier in the week! I LOVE your site.


  10. Kari

    Yeah…I could deal with having a little house like that next to my “regular” house. lol


  11. megan duerksen

    i would never come out.
    the problem is that it’s glass and everyone could find me easily.

    this house would be awesome!

  12. chicandcharming

    Wow, I am totally in love with that house!

  13. Liberty Post Editor

    O.K. Now you have gone too far. This image just kills me. Thanks.

  14. jeanne

    Man I would be so hard pressed to leave that except to stick my toes in the water.

  15. Lisa

    Very nice – I’ll be over in just a minute – ha,ha!


  16. Melissa

    You guys are cracking me up! If ONLY we could hang out by that glass house and the pool this weekend. All we need is the glass house and the pool. Well, and some fruity drinks with umbrellas. UGH, IF ONLY!!!



  17. Tara


    Forget the pool…just lemonade and a stack of magazines (and a turned off cell phone!), please! See you in 2 weeks!

  18. Chris

    This is it. My absolute favorite post ever. I actually gasped out loud when I saw it. I would do almost (almost) anything to have this glass house. Great find, Melissa!

  19. Penny

    How wonderful! That would be perfect for star gazing at night. Can you imagine falling asleep under the stars in that lovely glass house?

    Have a wonderful weekend Melissa!

  20. julia

    is that for real?!!! it has to be photoshopped :))
    i agree that this little fairy tale building would be most difficult to leave once you took up residence, now that is a sweet escape!
    happy weekend Melissa

  21. Jen

    Okay…I am the only pessimist…who is gonna clean all those windows? Boo me!!

  22. rosieswhimsy

    Oh Yeah! I could escape into that….but I would tuck it into my woods and make a Hansel and Gretel path to it.

    :-) Rosie

  23. Annechovie

    Melissa, this little glass house is perfect! I have always wanted one of those – so charming! Have a wonderful weekend!

  24. Sandy

    Hi Melissa – just popping in to say hi. That is really cool and something from dreamland! LOL. I could picture myself, with coffee and a good devotional.
    Happy Weekend.

  25. kristeen

    I want to escape there for the whole summer! Good grief – what a beauty! Oh, by the way I did do a Driveby of the canyon that I have to drive through each time I need food shopping done!

  26. anne

    I want to escape there too…it is absolutely devine…we can all dream :-)

  27. A Fanciful Twist

    Oh!!! A little glass house and little glass slippers. Ahhhhh, I am going to live in there too!! Can you imagine??? 29 of us stuffed in there? hee heeeeeeee xxoxo

  28. Sweet Cottage Dreams

    Hi my sweet friend! Janet, at Housepeepers, told me that you were doing a drive by feature. I just so happened to do a post today about one of our towns’ oldest neighborhoods with some homes being registered as Historic Homes of our town. So check it out and you can link this post if you’d like. It will be fun to see homes around the world on Tuesday!!

    I love this glass house. Dontchaknow I’d have a huge surplus of Windex on hand! Oh, and don’t throw any stones either!

    Have a great weekend! Our son is coming home tonight so we will be having a blast for the next three weeks!!!!! yahooooo!!!

    I would really, really like to walk through those doors. I would also like a tour of that little bit of paradise.

  30. A-M

    Thanks for stopping by and mentioning by little blog! Isn’t it just so divine…. ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ has done a post on more ‘glass houses’ from Tanglewood. ….. love those conservatories! A-M xx

  31. Sally

    What a dream spot to spend an afternoon or two.
    Off to do my drive by in the morning.

  32. Terri Steffes

    Isn’t that the loveliest thing? I am sorry I have been gone so much… I am the principal at summer school and I am going totally nuts. Come visit my blog, I posted a picture of a friend’s garden, complete with a darling potter’s shed!

  33. rochambeau

    Love your Dream conservatory.
    Can I jump into your dream and visit?


  34. rebekka

    OH my GOSH…like, really….what can you even SAY about that?!?!?!??!!! Gush, gush, gush….speechless.

  35. Debra W

    Hi Melissa,

    I truly cannot complain about where I am right now, as I gaze out upon the majestic Pacific ocean, but that pool house is gorgeous! Let me know when you will be hanging out there for the day;) I’ll bring the stack of magazines and a box of yummy chocolates, and we can sit and giggle all day long.

    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

    Hugs and lots of love,

  36. Janet

    I have always had a fascination with conservatories– the old, English, Victorian kind… and this would do quite nicely, thank-you! My favourite building at WDW is the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom. Architectural bliss. (Everyone else loves the Castle, but the CP is where it’s at for me!!)
    Hope you’ve had a restful weekend, Melissa!

  37. naturegirl

    To think some folks really do live like this!! sigh..dream!

    What a doll house, this is so lovely. I like your idea about a worldwide drive-by. I can’t wait to travel around the globe house watching. Karen

  41. Jenn and Jacqui

    Hi M!
    ALWAYS a perfect place to escape when we visit here! How beautiful is the glass house! Yes, build a little one next to the Big house! lol

    Happy week!

  42. Mrs. B

    Wow, this is beautiful! It really does look like something out of a fairy tale! I’d love to escape there!

  43. Mari-Nanci


    And it has to come with built in maid service, to keep those window panes spotless. :-) Well, of course it would!
