What Old House Lovers Really Want for Christmas

by Candice Whitlow

Well, we are officially into the holiday season. Weather is cooler, homes are starting to be adorned with lights and garlands, and retail stores are getting busier.
 
My household typically does it’s shopping at the last minute, but this year we’re actually ahead of the game. Jake and I have been discussing ideas on what to get the other, and while he loves our old house, guitars and amps would be at the top of his list. I on the other hand have asked for some unconventional gifts through the years that are, really, gifts for our house. For example, one year I asked for some drawer pulls for my antique dining room buffet. To some, that would be the equivalent of getting socks for Christmas, but if you’re like me, and you have the perfect buffet that needs the perfect drawer pulls, finding those under your tree on Christmas morning is exciting.

A Quirky Victorian in Americus, Georgia

by Meghan White.

 
Ah, that sweet, old fashioned charm of yesteryear. No where is it more apparent than in the beautiful old homes found throughout the American South. Join Meghan as she shares her favorite Southern real estate finds.
 
Located in Americus, Georgia, this gingerbread Victorian is likely what many of us dreamed of when we were younger—or, at least, what I dreamed about. The first detail that caught my eye was the house’s charming peach-colored exterior. An interesting array of gables on the front façade and an off-centered front porch are two more of the elements that remind me why I love Victorians in the first place.
