Confession

I love to watch 'This Old House.'

I am not a homeowner, but I LOVE old houses, so I still think it's cool that people go through the hassle and expense of renovating old homes. Old houses have character and stories to tell, and I just love old details. In my opinion, they really don't make 'em like they used to. My friend Gina is living the dream in Ohio, although some of her stories (like the absolutely tiny bathrooms) are a little scary. But the thought of taking a monument to the past and either restoring it to it's original condition, or having a vision of how to make a great old house even better, just really appeals to me. Must be the do-it-yourself person inside of me.

Of course, I don't actually have the funds to have such a house, but it's a dream of mine. Maybe some day.

KL,
Take it from me. Watching it is much more fun than doing it. However, As you know, I do love period details. Our contractors were about to throw out our glass doorknobs when we had the doors stripped. I am still upset about the door hinges.
