Stalking a House for a Painter

Posted on Wed, 6 Jul 2016 by midcenturyjo

It’s not healthy for me to stalk the properties for sale on The Modern House. Not healthy at all. You see I get jealous very easily.

It’s just what I never knew I really, really wanted.

I find myself more and more these days drawn to old buildings whose renovation brings their soul back to life without eviscerating to enable modern living.
