Pretty In Pink

It’s one thing to match your skirt with your shoes.

But this homeowner on Hillspoint Road — diagonally across from Elvira’s — has taken color coordination to a stratospheric new level.

  8. Good one Allen! I was thinking “breast Cancer or someone still has a little girl” syndrome. Actually Mary Kay is funny too but I think they give top earners cadillacs….

  10. What’s under that tarp? A three-wheel Roadster? Room for a pink poodle, too.
    All quite chic!

    She always smiles and says hello!! Not always the case in our wonderful town. Perfect colors for the beach and I love walking by it. So sad Poistanos is being torn down. My walking path for 40 years.

  16. I lived in this house, summer of 1973, and know some of it’s history. It was built about 1906 and had not been changed at all during the intervening 65+ years. My grandmother was friends with the owner, Miss Harrington, a very elderly lady living next to Norwalk High School. My brother and I went to visit her, feeling we had entered the world of Miss Haversham, of Dickens ‘Great Expectations’ But she was very kind to us and made the offer to rent it to us for four months, May- August 1973 for $100 per month. We split the rent 4 -ways between 4 roommates, each with own bedroom at $25per month each.We were between ages 24 and 18 and a lot of ‘stuff’ went on. There was a planter of ‘weeds’ on the roof top..
    It was primitive living in a great location. The exterior walls served as interior walls, no insulation or wallboard. The mattresses had the original straw ticking on bare springs. The original ice box for ice blocks was in the kitchen along with a basic stove, refrig and sink. The outhouse had been upgraded to include a flush toilet. There was no glass in the windows, just hinged shutters and walking upstairs caused sand to fall through the boards onto those below.
    There was a common sink at the top of the stairs.
    Up from Florida, I happen to be visiting family through this week.I was past yesterday and almost stopped to knock on the door as i did two years ago and think I’ll make an effort to meet ‘ the beautiful lady’ who now lives in what my brothers and I have always affectionately referred to as ‘The Shack’ where we spent a great summer 42 years ago.
