A Fun New Friend And Her Fabulous Old House

I had the pleasure of spending a little time inside this brick beauty yesterday…

It belongs to a fun new friend, and it was such a treat to meet her and her house!

I couldn’t resist taking some photos while I was there. I had my camera in the car, but no tripod, so I apologize in advance for the grainy interior pics!

I could’ve snapped 200 more, but I was only there for a little while and I didn’t want to have a camera stuck in front of my face the whole time! 😀

Happy weekend!

    spectacular! such a lovely home. gorgeous and livable!
    quick questions…
    1) there was a bookshelf on one side of the kitchen island, but what was the dark thing above the drawer on the other side?
    2) also, i can’t figure out where that magnificent wall of cabinets is located. in the view of the kitchen it doesn’t look like it is there.
    3) are they looking for a roommate? or a 42 and a half year old kid to adopt?
