Head Over Heels DIY Friday: Winter in Home Sweet Homewood

Kayd Roy8 Comments
We live in North Minneapolis.  It's a simple statement but to local folks that statement often met with confusion and concern.... which is unfortunate (and a bit annoying).  North Minneapolis as a whole doesn't have a great reputation- and yes some parts have certainly earn that poor reputation, but honestly there are plenty of wonderful  neighborhoods that are nothing like what locals think of when they hear "North Minneapolis".   One of those neighborhoods is our home sweet Homewood.

There's something incredibly special about this little neighborhood we found in North Minneapolis and I felt like sharing some it with you today.  Although winter is not my favorite season (-2 today but feels like -25, yuck!) it brings out all the charm of Homewood.  So, I hope you'll enjoy this "DIY" glimpse of our neighborhood through my camera lense. 

Aren't the homes just beautiful?  They all look so warm & cozy covered in fluffy white snow!

You might remember in my post about our neighborhood's history that these stone pillars were erected to mark the exclusivity of Homewood.  Everytime I walk by them all I can think about is the history around me and stories of the people who lived here.

Farwell Park is a couple blocks from us and it looks so peaceful in the wintertime.  Much different in the warm seasons when it is filled up with kids from the neighborhood!  Our nephew enjoys playing here when he visits too!

Speaking of parks, just over the Plymouth bridge is Theodore Wirth Park....

It's funny to think we have a ski chalet a few blocks away, but it's a lot of fun in the winter!  Theodore Wirth is mainly a golf course in the summer but in the winter it's buzzing with winter sports including cross country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, and more! 

It's just so pretty isn't it?  Even though I am freezing right now these photos make me feel all warm and fuzzy!  I heart Homewood!

I really hope you enjoyed a stroll through Homewood with me!  Are you Head Over Heels too?

Be sure to take a look at our new countertops, sink, faucet and backsplash in our kitchen if you haven't already!  Have a great weekend everybody!
