in case you were wondering...why yes, the old houses off broadway are darn pretty


i wouldn't mind living in an old brick house. 
and i wouldn't mind if the bricks were painted either.
maybe pink, or yellow, or mint…
especially if that house were somewhere in my beloved d.c., or new england...

in fact: throw in a velvet couch, a library with sliding ladder, hardwood floors, a staircase that creaks, a clawfoot tub, a big white kitchen...a chandelier or two or three…oh, and a kid or two, and you've got a done deal. you know, just in case anyone is thinking of giving me a house.

  2. On a walk the other day I found this gorgeous brick house that had been painted sea foam and all of the paint was peeling off. It was so pretty and I didn't even get a picture!
