It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

Sunday, January 12, 2014

Finally!  Some gorgeous weather!  Unfortunately, my body decided on Saturday morning that it's had enough of the abuse that I've been putting it through and I tweaked my upper back washing my hair.  Luckily, it only put me out of commission for most of the day on Saturday and I only have a few twinges of pain today.  But enough about getting old.  Let's look at something that's gotten better, despite its old age, like this beautifully restored old house.  Built in 1914, this home still has some of its gorgeous old features, like the gigantic front porch and grand living room fireplace.  And is that not the most cavernous master bedroom that you've ever seen?  Maybe that's what I need... a good restoration.

  4. I could settle I to this house quite easily...and I love the porches! The stove seems to be in an odd place. That looks like a spot for a fridge.

    Keep stretching and taking care off your back. I like to lay on the floor and bring one knee at a time to my chest.

  5. That is either the trickiest lens ever or the master bedroom is the whole floor! I love that this house is old and has character. Do you know why the porch roof is falling off on the right? Maybe for the sun? They don't do that up here. :)

    I'm glad your back problem was super temporary!

  7. Ugh, that happens to me too. More often than you might think. But the pain only lasts for a few minutes, rather than a whole day (I guess the damage isn't that great). That porch reminds me of the B&B we stood in when we went to Cape May. That thing was humungous! We joked it was about the size of our apartment.

  9. I once tweaked my back making my bed. And I think we all know what the solution to *that* is! ;)

    I love this house. There's not a lot I don't love, actually, although Neel and I still don't understand why master bedrooms have to be so huge. What I do love is that I can set my glass of wine on the toilet while I soak in that tub.

  10. Uhm, can I move there please? I'm totally dying over the decor and square footage, haha!

  11. Looove those windows. Those sort of original window panes give off the best wobbly light. I adore them. And that front porch! Sorry about your back. You'd think being in the shower/under hot water would be the one place your back COULDN'T go out, but alas! xo

  12. You always find the most gorgeous homes, but this one is really calling to me. Can we just pick it up and move it to SF maybe? ;)
