Cool, right?(Click to enlarge, then use your fingers to cover the right-hand corner of the first one and it becomes awesome.) Rather remarkable that these photos were taken only last week, not decades ago.
Tom and I visit these types of houses often via estate sales, thus feeding my imaginings that I'd love a whisk-you-back-in-Time house, air heavy with unseen memories. Yet at this rate, I'll probably never live in such a house and I'm still wanting to accept that.
At least, though, I'm grateful for the permission granted from estate sales to walk through these old places. It will have to do for now and perhaps forever.
I've forgotten to show you some recent yard sale finds:
The framed print. Remember that ancient painting I bought for over our fireplace? When I told the lady and her friend I bought it because I'm trying to make our house look old again, they said I could have this one, free.
The Jesus standing at the door print reminded me of my grandparents' house. $1.
I've read Faith Baldwin's journal-type books and Gladys Taber mentioned her so often that when I saw these books in a church bazaar box? I felt like, "Oh! Faith Baldwin. I know her." .50 cents each.
Nothing deep or spiritual today, folks. I just wanted to share some blessings with you while I'm still searching for new activities/ideas/plans to add to my life.
So there you go.

I hope you're having a special Fourth of July weekend!
The house I showed you photos from, above? It sold for just $11,000, mostly due to its (sad) location. Anyway, here are more photos in case you'd like to take a peek:
