A Few Inside Shots ...

Hi, y'all. Thanks ever so much for the enthusiastic comments and sisterly support in our (hopeful) move! You are the best! My parents enjoyed the outside photos too, but Mother said, "Share inside photos when you can." I do have a few, an odd selection from the last time I was in the house. I didn't take them for blogging purposes, but to remind me later on, of some pertinent nooks and corners. But here they are. Everything will be stripped out of the house, so picture it without the "stuff."
This is the dining room (the largest, central room in the house), looking into the small galley kitchen.
The living room is behind me, as I'm taking the photo above. I have no photos of it.
This is a bedroom. I have no idea why I took this photo :) The house has decent windows, lovely large paneled doors, and high 10-foot ceilings ~ classic for its age, which 93 years old.
Two of the three bedrooms have closets like this -- not deep and not wide. I will be culling out some of my more useless clothes.
I think I took this photo to remind me of how tight the bedrooms are ~ really small.
Julia tried to peek into those upper cabinets, but did not succeed.
Julia wants the smallest bedroom; that ensures that she won't have to share with anyone, ever. (haha!) It has a built-in desk and floor-to-ceiling shelves flanking the desk, with a window in the middle looking out over the back pasture. She's excited. Plus, she gets to sleep on the futon, which for some odd reason makes her happy.
The single bathroom is nothing to write home about. When you sit on the potty, you can reach up and wash your hands. Is that a plus?  It does have a tub and some crazy light fixtures. An elderly man lived here alone for many years, and we all know what kind of bizarre things a single elderly man can install in a house!

The kitchen isn't bad (and has vastly more storage space than my present kitchen!), but it's in desperate need of a Very Deep Cleaning. The last occupant has been dead about two years. There's still a 1/2 gallon of milk in the refrigerator, lying on its side. Eww.
The Frig-in-need-of-Fumigation:
The dishwasher looks sketch, as the young people say. I did find that cabinet door on the back porch, thankfully. Not sure why it was off.
Back porch/laundry. The washer/dryer are under that red blanket. Lots of windows. This is an improvement over some laundry situations I've known in the past.
I'll try to do a better job later of showing you the inside, but for now, this gives you a taste.


  1. LOVE IT!! I can see your unique and beautiful touch in each room!! So excited for you guys!!

  2. It's amazing how many rooms you can fit into a small house, isn't it? It looks like you'll have lots of projects, but it'll be so much fun to turn this into your own little farm! Yay! :)

  3. Oh it is quite charming with lots a great possibilities. I love it. : )

  4. A treasure-to-be. Imagination and lots of elbow grease are all y'all will need. This place sings potential, potential, potential ---- and personality!

  5. I like it! I'm excited for you!

  6. Our one bathroom is not much bigger. Adorable house with lots of potential. Love all of it. :)

  7. Wow!....but this is all do-able. It will be a challenge, but very rewarding.

  8. You are going to have so much fun turning this into your home.

    Lots of work to be done, but enjoy the process and pretty soon, like Adam's boat, you'll be seeing real beauty and will reap sweet rewards.


  9. I am so happy and excited for you as you begin this new journey! I love challenges and the fruits of labor, dh and I are working on one now, for someone else, we can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel!~smile~ Looking forward to you sharing.


Hello! I hope you leave a word ~ I will get back to it as soon as I can!
