      Restoring one of these fallen gems is a lovely idea! But I’m sure if you looked around locally, you could probably find a handful of abandoned beauties to tackle!

    These old homes are so beautiful. But it is so sad to know the people who lived them are probably dead, along with the heart of these homes. Still, I wish I could snap my fingers and see when it was all in its prime! Imagine how grand it all was!!!
