i am a little obsessed with illicit ohio. who knew ohio could be fascinating? the site is full of abandoned buildings and amusement parks and has a section of old vs. new photos of the same sites. there's even a photo tour of mike tyson's former (and now abandoned) mansion.
We have an agent but haven't started seriously started looking yet. Maybe this weekend...
The above photos were taken this past weekend during "Open Doors Denver." Historical homes, museums, and other sites open their doors once a year and let visitors come in and poke around. We visited a few mansions. They were beautiful, but the idea of actually living in one doesn't really appeal to me. I prefer cozy to colossal.
or, maybe, i will watch the young blushing nun occupying this room (image from marie claire maison). she brushes her brown hair and writes her mother a short letter. she sleeps here every night until a midnight in june when she runs away through the fields of grapes and wildflowers to the open arms of her forbidden future lover.
then i close my book (which is apparently the mundane tale of a student who fixes up old homes and furniture or a cheesy romance novel), admire ana's collage one more time, walk out of nadja's room and back into my living room where i sit and type on my computer.
