Crooked Moose Houses



“There's nothing to match curling up with a good book when there's a repair job to be done around the house.”  ~Joe Ryan

Last year we were on a short trip, and we passed something very strange looking. In fact, so strange that I told Phil we just had to turn around and investigate. And this is what we saw as we turned off the highway and drove down the side street. A small neighborhood of tiny crooked houses for huge leafy moose to live in!!! The blue house was made to look like a ship. I think I have never come across something as strange as this, and was so glad to have my camera!!


 “Build houses and make yourselves at home.“Put in gardens and eat what grows in that country.”

The house owner is very creative and very good in landscaping as well.. brightens up the garden with the "human greens." :)

Oh my goodness, how cute. Ginny, I'm glad you and Phil turned around and went back to get some photos. Those houses are so unusual and so are the greenery moose.

Neat little houses and those moose, reallllly..... What an imagination. That was a fun discovery for you and Phil. Yes I am glad to be back blogging. It has been a while. Hubby is doing better which gives me more time for me. Thanks for being my blogging friend. LJ

So funny that the moose and crooked houses go together! What a crazy find!

Those are very interesting, whimsical houses. I like the color of the blue one. Of course, Mr. Moose himself is quite a character.

Hi Ginny, What a fun set of pictures. They brightened up what is lining up to be a snowy late afternoon here in Crossville, TN where I am at the moment. Have a great Thursday tomorrow!

Cheryl said...

Oh my goodness! How adorable!!! I want some of those in my backyard!

Tamago said...

Wow what a strange but fun place you found! These crooked houses are in very pretty colors and moose look quite happy living there :-)

I think you are a magnet for the unusual, or you are exceptionally observant, or both. And, of course, there is your partner in photography who maneuvers you up close for your "investigations."

Chatty Crone said...

I think they are adorable and they are in your neighborhood?
