Our House

 It is decluttered, neat as a pin, and sparkling clean, and ready to show to house buyers!  Heidi Piccerelli took some beautiful pictures of the house.  It is looking its best in every way.  If you want to see more photos of the interior, click on the title of this post to link. 

This wonderful old house, which was built in the 1850's by a sea captain, is brimming with happy memories, sunshine, and color.  I have loved living here!

What a pretty house you have! I am sure you'll miss it, but what a grand adventure you are setting off to have! Her photography is beautiful!

Ahhhhh GLORIOUS color and a beautiful home. Thank you for my *color fix* for the day. I needed that.

It makes me miss our old house with all its rooms, and wallpapered and painted walls, and great potential for the future to decorate how I wanted. Now I add color (reds, yellow, orange,greens) whereever I can amidst all the wood in our log home... ...not that I'm complaining.

Your color scheme reminds me of susan sargent. And I have been wanting to paint my kitchen table the color of your front door...just have to muster up the courage :)

happy day!

Beauty at every turn. So gorgeous. We had tons of bold color in our old hitoric house - new house is a lot of tan....

Oh, it is a permanent move then...I was wondering whether you were planning to stay abroad for a few years or not. Good luck and I'm sure you'll find Switzerland a beautiful place to live. Very neat and green...and those mountains...

Your home is so wonderful. I LOVE the stair rail hand thing. (I'm absolutely positive that I'm using the proper term there)

I'm sure it will sell in a heartbeat. And soon you will be enjoying the Alps!

Much love,
Amanda

The hand on the post of the stair rail was, according to legend, carved by the sea captain while at sea, and represents his wife's hand! Beth

So beautiful, it must be hard to leave but we both know your home is with your family. Bear and I have been looking at houses from the 1800's. I will show this to show our realitor as an example to find here in MN. Take care.

Beth said...

Thanks, Appleshoe! Good luck on finding your house! Aren't old houses wonderful? Beth

Marcia,

Thanks for the great compliment...I admire Susan Sargent very much, and some of my furniture is covered in her fabrics! Beth

Dear Beth

I have just looked at your previous post and just want to climb into your pictures. One cannot believe there can be such beauty. I am so looking forward to getting to know Switzerland..

Your home deserves a place in some home magazine...so beautiful Beth. I can see how you must have loved living there.

Lots of love to my new Switzerland blogging friend~

Warm regards
Suzanne

Your home is so lovely. Rich colours and warmth exude from all corners. I expect your home in Switzerland will be completely differently - perhaps lots of wood and slopping ceilings! Whatever it is like, I am sure that you will add your own personal touch to it........Rosemary

I am stunned at the beauty of your home! I've stopped by your site just a couple of times and weren't sure where you lived. I had to check to see that you weren't close enough for me to purchase this stunning abode! Alas, we're on opposite coasts. Enjoy your upcoming journey...
