Right now I live in Colorado (and I DO LOVE it here), but my heart will always belong to WYOMING!! I WILL move back to Wyoming as soon as I am able. I grew up there and thought it was the ugliest place on Earth….UNTIL….I moved to Mainz & Buddenheim, Germany and lived there for a year and a half. When I flew into Denver, CO and rode into Wyoming….my feelings changed. It was the MOST BEAUTIFUL drive I have ever been on and I fell deeply in love with Wyoming for the first time. YUP, I would LIVE and THRIVE there very happily and content. :}

I am very grateful to say I live exactly where I would most want to live, Northern rural Alberta, Canada

I would live in Tennessee. I have moved extensively with my father in army and my husband and to me I have always loved the hills of Tennessee.

I would live on the Gulf coast somewhere in Florida, somewhere where snowflakes are seldom seen except on postcards, preferably within a mile or two of the biggest craft store I could find. You see? The question isn’t totally unrelated to crafting!

Hard to decide. I hate the Michigan winters… I loved the weather in Hawaii and would love to live there but it is Much too far away from my kids and Grandkids. I would probably choose Near the Ocean in South Carolina

We have lived here in Vancouver, WA since 1984. We recently downsized and could have moved any where. We moved 3 miles lol. Gentle mild weather year round. If there was an allergy free zone any where in the world would consider a move. I am allergic to grass, and suffer from end of June to mid September. But alass there is grass every where.

I would love to live in the Great Smoky Mountains. I am always so relaxed and at peace when I am there. The creativity flows like the mountain streams. Ideas and motivation blossom like the mountain wild flowers. This is where I belong!

I would want to live in New Hampshire…around the Hooksett area.
I have friends who live there and to me the area is ideal.. close to the mountains and also close to the ocean. It is so beautiful there no matter what the season. And the pace in NH is a lot more relaxed. (and there are no tornadoes)

That is so hard to answer. I have been to so many countries and they are all beautiful in their own way. I am retired now and I would love to live next to a lake or the ocean. Water is such a wonder to me. I love seeing all the critters come to drink or play and love to play in the water myself. So I guess I just answered the question. thank you

Hi Suzy!
I would live in a log home in the mountains of New Hampshire, my home state. Close to those I love and close enough to what I need. Maybe someday….

In a cottage by the sea. Love the breeze of the ocean, the crash of the waves and the colors it inspires.

We’d live where the climate is mild year-round, and I could walk to “work” at an artists’ compound. My children and grandchildren would live close enough to visit often. All the neighborhood cats would get along so that my indoor cat can enjoy life outdoors again. There would be a whole lot of people in the community interested in taking ballroom dance classes with me. We’d have a secret garden-style backyard and a cottage with a separate storage building for all my fabrics. The woods and a small lake would be nearby. The terrorists would never know we existed.

If I could love anywhere it would be Scotland, beautiful scenery , accents that make my heart beat faster (heheheheh) and lots of sheep for wool! (of course the chance to have my sweetie in a kilt playing bagpipes has a definite attraction too : ) )

I would love to live at my grandparents house in Auburn Ca. It’s up in the foothills. I used to stay with them sometimes during the summer.Grandma and I would go hiking and pick blackberrys that grew wild on their 3 acres of land. Grandpa built their house. I spent the best times of my life there! My grandparents are long gone, but now that I,m in my “golden” years, I can’t think of any place better to spend them!

Good morning. If I could live anywhere’s and it wouldn’t effect family and work I’d head to the mountains with a lake near by. Montana or Idaho I think.
That pattern is so cool. I don’t quilt, yet…waiting for the perfect time to really start…well I make patchwork quilts but nothing fancy. With my own sewing room coming up this winter…well maybe it’s a perfect time to start working on something just for me.
Take care Suzy and have a blessed and awesome day!

I want to live in Tokyo where my son and his family live.

If I could live anywhere, I think Hawaii would be my ultimate choice. Ideal climate, ocean beaches, vast diversity in food and people. I think it would be a fascinating place to live (assuming, of course, your income was high enough to allow you to enjoy it. I’ve read that the cost of living is significantly higher than in the continental US.)

I’m not sure I’d want to change the location of where I am, other than maybe more away from the city. I love having four seasons. But I would love to have a much larger house with a huge studio/craft room.

My dream is to live in a mid-century modern Eichler home, and there happens to be a whole neighborhood of them across town. So my move wouldn’t be far! Just hoping an affordable one pops up someday soon!

Gosh – that’s a very difficult question to answer! My answer is not really a fixed “place” per se … rather, my dream is to travel the continent in a nice roomy RV, camping at every state and national park I can find for extended periods, as a campground host. That way I can see at least this side of the world in the comfort of my own home. And I can visit all my family and friends on this side of the planet without being in their way. AND I don’t have to worry about real estate taxes! :D

If I could live anywhere I would live I would be neighbors with Deb in her fantasy world. However, I would have to have a huge space for my garden and a great kitchen to cook in so I could invite family and friends over. Oh, did I mention there would also be babbling brooks, waterfalls and no mosquito or spiders!!

If I could live anywhere (besides where I live right now, which is pretty perfect!) I’d live in Hay-on-Wye, Wales. It is a bibliophiles dreamland, with around 40 bookstores. I spent a week there 7 years ago and I still think wistfully of it. It’s a pretty village with lots of walking trails, a nice assortment of restaurants and shops, a bell tower, and a castle.

You know, there really isn’t a reason that I couldn’t live there, aside from the fact that none of my family would come with me! That’s okay though. I’d find a nice furnished cottage and spend all day wandering around town. :)

I absolutely love where I live in the mountains of Idaho, but if I could live anywhere, I live somewhere that was close enough to my grown kids so I could spend time with them and their families. Yep, gotta have that family connection.

I would live in Jerusalem because it is the spiritual capital of the world for both Christians and Jews. Everywhere you walk is full of history…both secular and Biblical. The flowers are beautiful, the people are friendly and even the stones have a story to tell. There are artisans of all kinds who live here and a trip to the local bookstore is momentous because the local authors, politicians and readers stand around discussing the pros and cons of the material that has been presented. A ride on public transportation can include discussions amongst the soldiers, the housewives and Holocaust survivors. Everybody has an opinion and is happy to share it. No quiet stares like a bus ride in NYC. There is absolutely no place in the world I would rather live than in Jerusalem……….and I’m not even Jewish.

This doesn’t sound exotic but I would like to live in Greenwich Village in New York City or Lake Forest outside of Chicago. I’m a city girl living in a big town. I just like the diversity as well as the intimacy that a large old city has–trains and subways, oodles of shops!, within walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores, museums…on and on.

I have always wanted to go to big sky country ( Montana) & let my true pioneer girl out…live like our great grandparents did….no electricity, totally off grid, but have a stream or river so I can fetch water…use my old woodstove or a camp fire to cook with……Grow & can all my foods, or dry them in the sun……..have a horse or old mule to go to town with to check on my mail, grab a bag of coffee & say hi to everyone….live like an old mountain woman & be with nature…& and my chickens of course!….M’

I wouldn’t just live in one place. I would be able to “GO” inside the book that I’m reading at the time. I read all kinds of books and I use a walker, so I’d be able to “walk” with the characters and many things I can’t do now. If it was a craft book, I’d be right there with the author , such as SUZY!!

Where would i live?? Wow! Anywhere? I really think mine is a fictional place…a place where it never gets over 75….we always have just the right amount of rain to keep everything green and happy but no floods……snow for Christmas every year…..a place in the country surrounded by forests and hiking trails oh and the ocean just over the hill for when i feel the need to have sand between my toes……do you know the place? Wish i did….Hugs! deb Thanks so much for the giveaway!
