Distressed wood floor

distressed wood floor, 
doorknobs and fixtures

  1. Wonderfully accurate of my house and me. Some parts are aging gracefully, but not all.

  2. Gail - Most of the weathered, old look of my house is deliberate (at least on the inside). Not sure I like feeling like it, though!
    Adelaide - I'm not sure if any of my parts are aging gracefully. ;)

  3. I've always had an affinity for - and been very comfortable around - old, well used things. As things are playing out, perhaps that was a bit prophetic on my part. Ha! I enjoyed this tanka, Janet.

    1. I v. much agree: sometimes old things are just better than newer, "perfect" things. Thanks!

  5. The wry humor in this is so relatable! I love old houses--they feel like home to me.
