Vintage Pattern

I have so much fun going into antique stores…




I was able to find this large magazine ad, along with several others (I’ll be posting them soon), for sewing patterns.  For those of you who love vintage or old sewing patterns, I thought this would be fun to see.

Happy hunting,

House Hunting…

Yes… It looks like my husband and I have to move.  Where?  Not sure.  Because of my husband’s job, we have different options (within the State).

We might end up renting, but if we buy a house, I’m leaning toward either a Historic Home or a brand new home.

“Why?” you ask?

Well, the brand new house is new so we don’t have to
worry about fixing anything for about 10-15 yrs.  The negative is the HOA.
(Home Owners Association)…which I hate…been there, done that kinda thing.

Then, about the historic homes… the pro is that it has a lot of character
and features that new homes don’t have and I really like that.  The con
is that we’ll probably have to fix something… or some things.
So, I wanted to show you some of the ones that have made it to my “favorites” list…
We haven’t had a chance to go see these yet, so we don’t know what the
neighborhood around the home looks like… which is a big deal…
remember, “location, location, location”?
I like the porch on this one below… I’d make some changes and add some trim,
but overall it looks good262 NE 2nd St, Webster, FL 33597
This one below is my favorite, I think.

This one needs a lot of work, but I can see it has so much potential!
This porch is my favorite, too.

This one may look a bit downcast, but, oh, the possibilities!

Okay, so this one looks REALLY bad, but because of that, the price is
really good.  I just don’t know if we could do all the work required…

So….. what do you think??
Any advice?
Any pitfalls to avoid?
Have a terrific weekend!
