I am delighted to have been featured on A Return to Loveliness. I have followed Kathy's beautiful; blog from almost the very beginning of my blogging experience in 2008. When God spoke to us in His Word " Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things" Phil. 4:8 I believe He was speaking of Kathy's blog.... I am always uplifted by my visits there!
Come take a stroll with me around the house, won't you.. we'll stroll from room to room.... Living in a 1930's English Tudor home is not what I suppose the younger generation is looking for ... I love the charm of an older house...even though I do not have open sight lines... as I sit here in the kitchen a t my computer station, this is w hat I can see .. right into the hall...
and if I bend way over I can see into the living room!
and from the kitchen I can see into the dining room
So I walk into the dining room it's is just off to the left of my desk
from there I can see into the living room through the typical archway
A few steps around the table bring me right to the threshold
Looking back into the dining room
Our house makes one circular path.... making a sudden right I'm back into the hall
a stopover in the tv room.
and then back into the kitchen..
out to the sunroom..
now that we have blinds all around the room, it is cosier than ever!
and back to the kitchen... the heart of the home!
I love my old, very charming home.... with it's chambers set apart for various purposes...
So I step back over to my computer station (Ha..hA..ha right below the one cabinet door that hasn't been finished because it had to be reordered and took weeks to get it installed... well, it is what it is.... It's on the painting schedule for later this week!)
but I think about what young buyers are looking for in a home....do they not realize that wide open spaces are drafty.... or that once retirement comes hubby and wife really don't want to be sharing the same space all the time.... I love the demarcation of separation... as did our daughter and her boyfriend when they were dating.
Yes, I really love our cosy home down our leafy lane
but we aren't getting any younger and I just wonder what a prospective buyer would have to say about a home like ours.... our daughter says that the pendulum is swinging back to more traditional homes in Massachusetts... but I have yet to see that trend change on the home network.... so I just continue to say I prayer each time I traverse to the second floor... and am thankful to have a home filled to the brim with charm, blissful memories, and loads of love!
