Gracefully Aged


I have had so many readers ask me about the house I featered on my Winter blog banner. This is the "River House" in Minnesota and is in the book Celebrating Home - Seasons of Cannon Falls. The house was built in 1868 and was moved and restored in 2002.


Mr. Ella and I found a few of our own River Houses right here in Texas.



We recently wandered around Navasota oohing, aahing and dreaming.



The porch on my new old house, Romantic Prairie ,will look similar to this.



Another jewel that has aged with grace ( and lots of character).
