    My mother and grandmother were both quilt artists and they would’ve been very jealous of that marvelous workroom.

    I’ve died and gone to heaven. I’ve never seen posts so closely situated like this: https://www.oldhousedreams.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/141-303e7thst.jpg

    And these knobs!

    And these cupboards!

    As for this,
    I’d want the Craftsman details to shine through just a smidgen more. Just a Missionesque artwork over the mantel is all this needs. I’d also avoid anything suggesting Victorian in a Craftsman. Stickley style or even Mid-century furnishings are fine in a home as dynamite as this.

    I like the light fixture over the dining room table and I love the kitchen. As a matter of fact, the more I look at this home, the more I like it.

    In my early days at OHD the mere mention of Craftsman had me as excited as the proverbial kid at Christmas. The phase, like all phases, faded but I’ve always maintained an interest in Craftsman homes when they show up here. And this stunning beauty is one of the reasons why.

    In case I haven’t already said this, I’ll say it now. I LOVE houses looking proud and sunny in their yellow paint. This one is gorgeous, and before I even began to scroll down through the pics, I knew it would be a winner. I love everything about it: the grounds, the entrance way with its lovely stairs, the grandfather clock (wonder if that’s a Herschede??) The kitchen, the sewing room, the cosy light-filled room in Photo 27, the bedroom in 34. There is so much to love about this house, and I love it all. It certainly appears to have been well looked after with pride of ownership everywhere.
