I don't watch a lot of TV. When I need mindless excursions, I usually get on the internet. I travel to different towns across America via the Real Estate pages. I am on a never ending hunt for my perfect house. I don't have an overall picture of it in my mind, but I do have snapshots in my dreams. Its front remains faceless right now, but its features are clear. My must haves are simple and generally are old features.
An antique door ...I love the hardware on this one as well. But I like those old glass doorknobs for all the interior doors.

Old screen doors on every entrance...and they have to be the real kind that slap the wood every time they close. The hinges can squeak as well.
a front porch...enough said
....fireplace, preferably stone
a farmhouse sink
And this lovely bathroom. I am blessed to have a really nice little house, and love it and I am truly grateful for it. It's main issues for me are that it isn't located where I would like it to be. If I could add a porch, get a new "old" door and screen doors, face the fireplace out with stone, get a new sink and remodel the bathroom; then it would be perfect.
maybe move it to this view.
