I tend to do some pretty weird things, but Phillip says what I'm about tell you, is one of the wierder ones. ;0)
On the rare occasion when the house is clean, the children are tucked into their beds and Phillip is busy watching one of his "guy" movies (AKA boring!) I like to go to Ebay and look at house listings.
Now, I am not interested in moving or leaving my wonderful home, I just like to go on what I call "Online Home Tours" and Ebay is the place to do it. I go to the "Real Estate" section and type in a variety of search words. My favorites are: Victorian, Farm, Farmhouse, Historic, and Historical. You can get some wonderful decorating ideas but be sure not to look at the prices, that ruins the fun!
I want to share a few that I found tonight.
This first one has a wonderful story that goes along with the ad! I can just imagine myself dancing away up on the 3rd floor of this 1891 Home
Be sure to check out the gorgeous porch, the path to the backyard and the woodstove in the office while touring this 1894 Victorian Home
This next one is a 1880 farmhouse and I can't decide if I want a glass of sweet tea on one of the porches (there are 3!) or in the darling sitting room first! It has the original 1900 wallpaper in the parlour. I guess you could say no eating in that room!!
Last but not least, a 1800's farmhouse on 58 acres. There are no pictures of the inside but who cares what it looks like with a view like that!
Be sure to check out the creek with all the moss covered rocks. Sigh. So pretty!
I hope you enjoyed my online home Tour as much as I did!! Let me know if you find anymore good ones to share!
