Older homes...

Lucky me...we stopped to get gas, and across the street was this house.  It was hard to capture it without a car passing in front, but I did manage a couple.  Click to expand the view...notice the touch of green/bluegreen? on the porch posts...right where they meet the railing.
And look at this!   The end eaves were just the same but I could not manage to capture a picture of either one.  This one is in Crawfordsville.

The one below is in Waveland...
We were paused at a stop sign when I snapped this pic.  I would love to see this one painted and given a facelift.  It sure is or could be a beauty.
****************
It is bitter cold here...the wind has not stopped blowing today.  It blew our wooden glider across the back porch as if it if has a sail attached early this morn.

I like both- the second one makes me wish I owned it so I could paint it. (Although I can imagine that would be hard to do) It's beautiful anyway.

I would love to be given an older home to redo. I couldn't afford to buy one and then refurbish but I would love to try.
I do like the first on with the special touches and the upper window although the other one is more typical and is a beauty.

Both are pretty houses but I prefer the first one. Love the colour too.

I absolutely love old homes. We almost bought one when we were looking for our first house. My mother in law walked in and said it was haunted...big pro for me...but then we walked to look out the window and found that the floors were sagging...bummer. Then my focus changed to finding a new house that looked like an old house. By the time we could afford that I no longer wanted a different home. I hate to see old homes neglected.

they are both beautiful and grand old ladies.. on the first one the only thing i don't like is the trim around the top point of the window.. a little much for me. but i love everything elses

Hope it warms up for you. It has been cold here too...and snowy (snow squalls). Love both houses and the second one sure could use some scraping and painting.

Wonderful designs on these older homes. In my experience there is usually a requirement for some base line improvements on the inside, if not on the outside. But I love the wood inside.

I love older homes, love all the little details in them. I am back to blogging finally!

I love these Rose and would just love to live in an old home like this.

The arched window on the first house is nice, but I really, really, really like the second one and agree with you. Would love to see it fixed up.

i love those windows. i wish i could live in a home like these. my hubby was such a fan of Victorians that he built on new. he doesn't like the "fixing up" part when it comes to the old ones. but i like the unique things about the old ones. that is my favorite part(s). ( :
