We sold our house!


To be honest it all still seems like a dream….I can’t believe we actually sold our beloved home! Once upon a time though we restored a beautiful Victorian home and had to sell it due to a declining neighborhood. It was my dream home and I was very sad when I had to leave it behind. Since then I have alwasy secretly wished we could buy another one.There is just something about all that carved woodwork and stunning staircase that makes my heart go pitter patter!

Fast forward to a few months ago….

I decided to look at houses for sale in the area on a whim and I found this home.

Once upon a time she was a grand old lady. With a little love and a whole lot of work we will bring her back to her former glory. Follow us along on our new adventure!!!!

Oh, Des. I am so happy and excited for you and looking forward to what you do for her. A grand old lady for sure. There is something about the era that is so fulfilling to be able to put efforts to make her beautiful again. I know how that feels, but mine is not near as grand. Imagining the staircase and woodwork is a joy for me and I can't wait to see it all and your journey..Happy Thursday..Judy
