This Post is for Jayne & Milah

Because I know it is driving them crazy. Their inquiring minds want to know what the inside of that place looks like. The following are just the realtor’s photos. I’ll get more shots on Saturday during the inspection.
You’ll notice that the hideous bedroom wallpaper is not shown in any of these photos. Those realtors are sneaky like that. So girls, until we can gather in person, I hope this satisfies your curiosity. Start planning your visits and don’t forget to bring a scraper.

What a beautiful house! I think we were all waiting to see the inside. Thanks for sharing. Have a great Fourth of July!

Shut. Up.

You have got to be beyond excited!!! That house is move in ready! And I was gonna say, what hideous wallpaper? But if you tell me there's hideous wallpaper then I'll believe you. I love all those windows in the family room and you will too! And, I want to know which room is mine when I come to visit? Gosh, I can't wait to come see it in person!

What a gingerbread lovely!! Is it a little farm or just a house or are some of the animals going too?

Envy!

Is there hardwood lurking under some of that carpet?

Tombstone Livestock said...

Ok, I approve, has a beautiful porch, love the wood detail work on staircase, transom window, stain glass windows, clawfoot tub, is that the date in the eaves that the house was built? ... is there going to be a loom or two there in the "Sheville" curved window area. Hopefully once again there will be a couple of sheep to watch out in the pasture. Small enough herd you can handle by yourself.

Congratulations Christine you really lucked out and found a wonderful house, maybe you should have bought a lottery ticket too.

Jayne said...

Ohhhh, that stained glass keyhole window! Ohhh, the kitchen! Ohhhh, the awesome bathroom! Ohhhh, the windows in Sheville! That house is swoon-worthy, girl! Lucky you!!!

Christine said...

Yes, there are wood floors under all that carpet. They need refinished. We know they are oak.

Yes, that is the date of construction. It was done with shells and stones from the nearby river.

And yes, that is exactly where the looms will go. :)

I'll bet you're spending a lot of sleepless nights anticipating where and how everything will fit, and how to make that lovely old home your own. Good luck with it all

Niece said...

What a fantastic home....Congrats!!!! I truly believe things happen the way they are meant to be.....when we moved to Indiana almost 9yrs ago,the young couple that bought our home in Texas wanted our 15yr old cat so we felt it would be easier on her and our vet agreed!

Just a little aside--
while weaving in 100+ heat yesterday I had my local Chicago radio station (WBBM)on. Guess what they advertised?!! The Connor Park Re-enactment festivities, plkus all the good stuff there. So please tell someone that their ads are heard over here!! Thanks.
