Do you remember the old house we looked at a while back and put an offer on? Well, after some issues and delays (as always, it seems) with pandemics and disappearing heirs, we’re a go to close on it soon. We’d just about given up!
Today we went back by the house so that Chris could measure all the rooms and we could finalize our plans for it. We’re not sure all of what we’ll do, but Chris and Kathleen are looking forward to making it their Cameron home once it’s livable (that will require a kitchen and working bathroom).
While we were thinking about laundry rooms, kitchen islands, and upstairs offices, I wandered around looking at stuff, as usual. I found a few treasures I had to bring back with me.
Most exciting to me are these precious little cards, in the series “Useful Birds of America.” I may have to get a better picture and see how many people know by sight.
I also simply could not resist bringing these guys home and cleaning them up. The horse and rooster tiles just beg to go in my office, and the little pug with squinty eyes reminds me of my dear departed Scrunchy.
These are just a few of the things we hope to clean, repair, and give new love and life to in this house. We’d just about given up hope on getting it, but now we’re full of plans again.
We’re also full of plans for the vacant lot right across from the house that we should also be getting. So many possibilities!
What color should we paint this Victorian beauty?
