GUEST ROOM






DEN




For you eagle eyes:
A close-up of the strange board on the piano that we displayed during open house. This is section of wall we saved from a renovation. Why? you are asking? It was signed by the electricians and dated July 20, 1911.




Each room contains pieces belonged to, and/or was made by parents, grandparents and great grandparents. This is really the hallmark of our home.  I made a card for each room listing these items and their origin, placing it on a small easel on a bed, bench or table.

I hope you enjoyed the first part of the tour.  There will be more to follow.

What a wonderful idea you have there.
These rooms look as good as the outside promised they would be.I see that you too have lots of family items,I have my fingers crossed my children will be glad to have them one day.

Lisa, your home is amazing! I am so happy that life held so many precious and beautiful gifts for you. It is more than we could have hoped for so very long ago. My mother has a sewing machine like the one in your guest room. I have inherited many cooking utensils that are over 70 years old which is odd considering I never cook. So lovely and thank you for sharing with us!!

Oh, Lisa, you have made a beautiful home! Heirlooms are so important. They are the only things we transported from NH to our Florida home. Love them.

I lived there off and on for twelve years. I've seen it all, but I just love these pictures and can't wait for the rest!
