A little bit of Norway....

I was helping our oldest with homework last night

I love this....I could live in anyone of these homes.
and came across these images of Norway.

How Beautiful is this...

to the country...

is this common in Europe to landscape your roof top?

I just love the sweet little buildings and and all the windows.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend also!


  1. They do look sweet, but the one with the trees, well, I think that might become a heavy!!

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. These are wonderful pictures Heidi. I love the first picture with the different colored, different shaped houses, but I love the ones with the vegetation on top. You could have your own Christmas tree on top of your house!! Hope you have a wonderful day. Hugs, Diane

  3. Beautiful! Starr Hill in Juneau kind of looks like your picture - the colorful houses nestled on the hillside!

  4. You would like switzerland a lot then, they are so similar!

  5. Love these pictures Heidi! Yes, this piece of Europe is soooooo beautiful,..want to live there ;O)

  6. Beautiful! Both of my grandparents on my Dad's side are from Norway, so I have a bit of a soft spot for it. Thatch roofs are quite common in northern Germany and it is also common to plant succulents and such on flat roofs. Nothing like what is pictured here though.

  7. love these houses! I think I could totally live there

  8. Heidi,
    I love the second photo....I could live there!
    It all looks so peaceful.
    Hope you had a nice Easter weekend!
    Chris :o)

  9. Hmmm not landscaped roofs in my neck of the woods!!

  10. Hi Heidi,

    What a beautiful country Norway is! It's still on my wish list. Love to see the Fjords one day. Hope you had a lovely Easter with your family? We had tea with the family yesterday and went to our garden today. I painted the garden table. The set is almost finished now. I hope it will look pretty. Otherwise I done all the trouble for nothing ;-)!

    Happy evening & lieve groet, Madelief x

    I hope your parcel will arrive soon now!!!

  11. What a lovely post. I love that little house in the country its so very sweet and quirky and with plants on the roof well trees it just makes you smile. I have never seen grass on the roof of a house before ;-)) Have a lovely week, dee x
