feels like HOME

 There are so many things to share about this place, it's hard to know where to start...
Built in 1905, it was a farm house located at the bottom of our yard by the creek. In 1950, the main road was put in along with sewage so it got moved up the hill. I'm unsure when the current owners Guy and Sue bought the place, but they raised their daughters here and have left a lasting impression.

Grape vines, apple trees, rose bushes ... the towering Willow tree. The house has been rented for 6 or so years now, and while no one has really kept up with it, there are still some beauties left from Sue's garden. This morning I looked out the kitchen window and realized we have hibiscus trees. Every day something blooms and surprises me.

Simply gorgeous!! I am such a sucker for old homes - The apartment we used to live in was 200+ years old - Even though it had many quirks and few amenities, we loved it so much more than the updated (but boring) place we rent now ... PS Your feet look like mine - Painted with lavender polish and tucked into Birkenstocks :D

What a beauty! The little corner details on the porch are so charming, and the SWING! oh the swing.
