    LOL. :mrgreen:

    What would you buy if you had a fairy godmother to lend you the money?

    For $100,000 I could buy a house with land, a long arm and a new car and still have money for fabric. Any lenders out there?

    I like the colors but my favorite house is only $90,000.

    Incredible Queen Ann Victorian. Wonderful fireplaces, pocket doors, original woodwork, porte cochere, balconies, stained glass, butler's pantry.

    You had better be pretty handy to maintain that type of house & they are very expensive to heat. We have a lot of restored Victorian houses near me in historic Newtown, PA

    No way. Looks like a money pit to me. For 250,000 I could buy a new house with lots of land in the country.

    For that amount of money, I could build a house, pay off all my bills, and possibly pay off a hit man to take care of my soon-to-be ex-husband! Not really but could sure use about $2500 to pay the attorney!

    I love the house we have. I would love to have the money to have a housekeeper, cook, maintenance man, and someone to do all of the yardwork. :)

    I would build my dream house with a big wrap around porch. Two apt. Upstairs. So my kids could visit anytime. Buy a long arm and invite all my quilting friends over for FREE to do their own quilts....the first thing I would do is tithe off my new weath...

    Egads - where I live that would just about buy a garage! Oh woe is me! I just realized that may sound uppity and believe me, I don't mean it that way. I just mean to say that houses here are very expensive. We are in ours about 36 years and paid a fair price, but fair prices today are out of sight. (they aren't fair is the point!) I couldn't afford to move even if I wanted to. But that's OK - I like my house and my neighborhood.

    Ok, I have my dream home pix, machine, and car.
    Couldn't add them to the original file, had to shop first.

    I have modest dreams...

    I still have about 15 grand left to spend on fabric! What fun!

    I think this would work for a nice retreat house.

    California is very expensive real estate - you can get good deals but you really have to shop.

    Are you kidding me?? I guess I'm spoiled living in the midwest. $250,000 will buy a lot of house here. If someone gave me that money I would buy myself a nice longarm and and invest the rest for retirement!

    I wouldn't like that one.
    I would build a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, Huge kitchen and frontroom, sewing room and 3 car garage and basement. In the mountains of North Carolina and have a 10foot wrap around porch all the way around it. So all of you could come and enjoy yourself. A fireplace in each room too.

    Fenced in 20 acres of land so any doggies or any other pets could roam while visiting.

    Yes you could come too.
    As long as you like animals.

    I forgot to add a built in swimming pool enclosed so you could swim everyday of the year.
