Our Old House

1840 = some friendly colonial ghosts (no lie, doors open unexpectedly, toys disappear...)
I've been a bad blogger! Luckily, I have a bunch of spare posts ready to go at a moment's notice (P was sick all week and now we're in Dallas for a wedding (yea Bill and Michelle!!) so blogging has been put on the back-burner for a few days). One weekend, I went around the new house and took pictures of all the cool, old stuff that give it character. Here are a few favorites...

Our pretty front door that no one uses.
A bronze horse statue in the front yard.
I like to think that this was actually used as a post to tie your horse.

The original shoe 'cleaner' - the easiest way to rid soles of mud and dirt.

This is the OTHER front door - I love the diamond window.

The dutch door (or stable door) in the kitchen. Perfect for calling out to the men that it's dinner time :)

Floor heating vents - these suckers need some LUV.

Funky doorbell - it doesn't work, unfortunately.
