When you buy a [previously owned] home you inherit a few items here and there around the house. These are my favorite, left-behind items. Some of these items are just lovely or interesting and you'll easily understand my love for them.
Love! These flowers are HUGE and are at the corner of our house. They are beautiful and basically make up for all the weeds in our flowerbeds.
Love! This note on our driveway. Right outside our back door we have a reminder of the history of our home. It states, "Built by Ford Gang 4-22-70". How awesome! And I think it's pretty funny they called themselves a "gang".
Love! Well, my husband loves it. This is visible right outside our bedroom window which is super convenient when trying decide what to wear in the morning. Who needs a weather man?
Others are simply head-scratchers.
Hmm? A ceiling fan in the carport? OK. I think I can jump on that bandwagon, but a ceiling fan with a green light? I don't know. (Oh, and yes, that is a basketball at the end of the light chain.)
Hmm? Tiny antlers above the storage shed door? Of course. Those are totally needed, right?
Is there anything you've come across in your home that you've fallen in love with or that you've just decided to embrace? I personally think it's part of the fun of owning an old home.
Until next time...
