School House Rock

Today is the first day of school for the twins. I don't know why they start school on a Tuesday instead of a Monday which makes more sense to me. Decisions are being made all over the state of N.C. everyday and no one ever asks my opinion. Go figure. But back to school did get me thinking about two things...

1. School House Rock

2. School Houses

Were you a fan of School House Rock? Maybe you are too young. My two favorites were "I'm Just A Bill" and "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverb Here". Pretty catchy don't you think? What was your favorite School House Rock song?
(If my sisters are reading this, you can just click on the highlighted words and you can hear the songs. Doesn't it bring back memories of Saturday morning?)

So of course School House Rock got me thinking about...

My favorite school house.

Monkey Cottage.
The weekend home of John Loecke and Jason Nixon.

Originally featured in Country Living you can read the whole article here.

These guys are not afraid of paint.

Or color

Or layering.

Their little cottage is jammed packed with personality. Much cuter than any school I ever went to. Although, I do remember a lot of the walls being painted green. If you get a chance, don't forget to check out more pictures here.


  1. Personally I liked Conjunction Junction what's your function. But the adverb song was good too. Hope the twins have a great first day!

  2. Love this little cottage. Esp the exterior!

  3. That is a mighty swell school house. Love the greens and limey yellows.

  4. That is so cute! I want to live in a school house too!

  5. I love that school house. Now School House Rock will be in my brain all day long!!

  6. Something totally spellbinding about an old school house - I would LOVE to have one!

  7. I agree, that is my favorite little school house ever!

  8. for some reason, i feel like this was in domino?? i dont know, nonetheless, i love.

    i miss going back to school, shopping for supplies, outfits, that first day of class...maybe i should go back to grad school...

  9. I love the inside and outside! So cute!

  10. I love this school house! Talk about fabulous!

  11. Growing up I had a friend who lived in an old school house, I just adore it although it was not even close to being as fab as this one.

  12. have been a fan of this school house cottage since i first saw it. i love the owners too. so gay so cute. you just know this was their place to go crazy with color and pattern and country charm. their city house is probably all earthy industrial.

  13. I love this house and have never seen it before. Thanks for sharing! What charm!!!

    My oldest went back to school on a Thursday which was only a half day and then went a full day on Friday. How crazy is that???

  14. love school house rock, but i love that little school house even more!! What great colors, I want to move right in :)

  15. I love, love, love this home tour!! And I have fond memories of School House Rock. Hope your kids had a great first week of school!

  16. I own the Schoolhouse dvds & watch them every now & then. I still know the Preamble to the Constitution because of the song. I actually sang it to myself in 11 grade American History as I wrote it for my test!!!
    Good luck to the Hydrangea twins!!!
