My House

Yeah!  I uploaded photos from my digital camera onto my computer and posted one of them here to my blog.  Who knew it would be so easy?  Not me! 
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....

It sounds like you are saying that the house was built in the 1830's...might want to specify that it was built to look old. Also, I think you should show some pictures of the landscape wall b/c it looks AWESOME!

There is a nice picture of your house on the wall underneath Darcie's picture and beside Mr. Gayle's diploma.

BTW - When I took Hannah to the birthday tonight I was shocked to see how tall Darcie is!!

Melissa,

I was wondering how you could see Gayle's diploma so well when it was so tiny. I clicked on the picture and voila! everything's bigger. I didn't know you could do that! I sure have learned a lot today. And yes, Darcie has changed so much lately. It's making me sad.

This is one of the places that I will never forget about your home. I love it!
And the "study" or whatever it's called. Such wonderful memories of relaxation!

So glad to see you've finally gone digital! Great photo.

The camping went fine. Thanks for your prayers!

Katy,

Oh no, I haven't gone totally digital! Just for this blog. It's too much trouble to take my photos to Wal-Mart, make a CD, bring it home and load it into my computer, and then put them on my blog. Digital is much easier for this. I don't know when, if ever, I'll go totally digital.
