Inside the big old house we've been visiting this week there's a big old stairway. Someone painted it once--or probably more than once.
The light likes the paint.
A close look at this glass makes me wonder if it's original to the house. Would these be 1896 colors? They look psychedelic to me.
This window is more convincing as an original, with rippled glass even in the stained parts. But it's all guesswork on my part. For all I know, the windows were all put in in 1986.
Except this. Here's the door to the sleeping porch. It's in a tiny hallway all its own, peeking north. Right now it's hard to reach because it's in a part of the house Jim hasn't gotten to yet, at least not entirely.
Jim and Cybele are a busy couple with careers, interests and a baby boy. They may or may not ever finish with all the plans they have for the place but it doesn't matter. The house will wait.
Much thanks to Jim and Cybele for this delightful visit.
