I realize I have been negligent in posting and getting around to visit my favorite blogs lately, but I have been a very busy girl!
After several weekends away from home when my dad was sick and after his death, I had fallen behind in working on this gem of a house, my latest project and newest love.
She is a lovely Victorian cottage that used to be my honey's law office. She has been sitting vacant for a little while, recovering from a string of bad tenants and years of re-muddling. It has been my mission to restore her to glory.
The outside is in good shape, but the inside was a travesty!
The curving front porch was what made my heart sing the first time I saw this place. This is the view looking out toward the street.
This is looking eastward, where you can see one of the generous curves, leading back toward the front door.
This is the back end of the porch on the west side of the house. A generous trumpet vine is creeping up over the ledge, and I plan to add a trellis to both support it and create a little green sanctuary.
So, all my free time has been spent on this beauty of a house, and in a couple of months I will be moving in. I am trading a sweet spot in the country for a sweet house in town.
Stay tuned for project updates and photos of the inside.
Until next time...
