52 Weeks of Home : Week 25 : Something You Love

I am determined – DETERMINED – to only do one picture this week. Because if I don’t, I’ll be typing until 2029. Because almost everything about our house, I love. And almost everything makes me smile, so I could go on…. and on….. and on…….

Week 25 : Something You Love!

Post something about your house that makes you smile….. 

One picture. Here goes.

Here’s what I love about this picture, and my house.

  1. I love every person who has lived here, because they knew better than to paint the original wood.
  2. I love that the rooms aren’t square.
  3. I love that – as sad as it is – that the ceiling is interesting.
  4. I love that the walls are crumbling, and that it was too scary for everyone else who looked at the house before we could save it.
  5. I love the light fixture (which we added).
  6. I love the plan that I have for this room – eventually.
  7. I love the leaded glass window leaning against the room in the lower right hand corner. Because I bought it just for this room, ages ago, and it’s going to be amazing.
  8. I love the tall ceilings.
  9. I love the light.
  10. I love the fireplace.
  11. As much as it is NOT my taste, I love the angel decals on the ceiling and the painted on tassels on the wall. Because someone else loved this room, too.
  12. I love the potential. I love being excited about a room falling apart, because we get to put it back together.

This is how I feel about every space in this house. It all makes me smile.

Here’s the list (also in pdf format : 52 Weeks of Home), of all the challenges for each week :



  1. Yes! You are extremely lucky that former owners did not paint the woodwork. I have lost count of the beautiful old houses I have looked at that have been, IMO, trashed by having the woodwork painted. However, painted is better than removed, at least that can be remedied with a lot of hard work. This is a beautiful room even now before restoration!
