Now I'll be able to take photos of my house, gardens, and lands and show ya'll where I live.
These walls are on the landing going up the stairs. The wall with the window is my landscape wall. The other one has our family portraits and some miscellaneous personal things such as handprints cast in plaster and my Daddy's reading certificate from grammar school.
The window is a old leaded glass antique one I found in Savannah. I don't know where it came from originally. I really wanted a gothic window there, but my contractor said there wasn't room. I still think there was enough height for a small one. I love gothic architecture.
My style of house is a Carpenter Gothic from the 1830's. I want to add more 'gingerbread' to the outside soon. I was afraid to add too much lest it be too decorative, but I've decided that there's not enough. I'll take a picture outside tomorrow and show you what I mean. Until then....
