Old houses


I stayed here once. I have a very rocky love affair with old homes. I think I am destined to live in one, or at least one that looks old. The charm makes my heart go pitter patter but the thoughts of ghosts gives me the trots. Spiders too. Those give me the eebie jeebies more than the ghosts. Because my luck would be that I'd find an amazing house that's old and fabulous, and all of a sudden the oldest living tarantula know to mankind would be living in my attic......with the ghost from 1872 and the moonshine from 1925.....

I need to lay off the trail mix, my imagination goes crazy.

But really I stayed there. It was beautiful and you could feel the history....when it woke you in the middle of the night. 'Nuff said.

We lived in an old house that was vacant for awhile before I moved in with my family. I was in 6xth grade at the time. I will never forget hearing my mothers spine bending screams one day. I ran in to find her holding the vacuum hose as far as she could from her self and a wood spider so big on the end of the hose that it couldn't get sucked down. The thing was HUGE!!!!

I heart old houses. I especially like the ones with the wrap-around porches. They remind me of my great grandmother.
I would have LOVED to stay in a home like the one you posted there!
