I do very few things that are a “waste of time”….little television watching….little down time…very little “do nothing” time. I did get hooked on something though…. Vivacious Victorian.
You all know that I love old houses….REALLY love old houses. You know how I love WOODWORK of old houses. You know Hubby loves it too so it makes it extra special as we share the interest.
Well somehow I stumbled across a Facebook page called Vivacious Victorian. (Find the Facebook page here) That lead me the website. (Find the website here) WOW…I was in love just like that. The blog features a couple who bought an old Victorian house and are working to renovate it. WOW…that is totally what I love.
This is the house they are fixing….
I have gone back through the archives and have been trying to read from the beginning. I highly suggest that if you want to check it out that you start with the “start here” page.
I felt totally attached to the blog when Amy said that they fell in love with the house after peeking in and seeing this. They said they really didn’t care what the rest of house looked like…this staircase clicked with them.
My house is nothing compared to this…nothing at all. BUT…I felt the same way when I saw this….the divide between our toy room and dining room. It made this house click with us.
I was sold on our house. Hubby was too. I’m into reading about the first room they renovated….the kitchen. That was what we did first too. I can relate to so many of the stories that Amy tells about their remodel. It make me relive part of our saga and appreciate all the work we’ve done to date.
If you love reading about old house…if you love remodeling…if you love rags to riches stories, you will love the blog. It is my new guilty pleasure. I love it!!
